The company I work for is currently working with the SBIR office on a Phase III award, and the sponsor would like the award to be a three year delivery order. My question is, what funding threshold would facilitate a fast award as to avoid the process of Congressional approval. I appreciate any guidance you can give.
If I requirement was previously competed and no further competition is required to award follow-on work, is this new follow-on work now considered non-competitive? Or is it an extension of the prior competition? Example A: FAR-based follow-on production contract derived from a successful (and competed) prototype OTA. Example B: FAR-based Phase III SBIR for production following a prior competitive Phase I SBIR. Identify the actions as either competitive or non-competitive will have a major impact on approval levels.
As a contractor holding a Phase II SBIR Contract from Army, can we subcontract a portion of the R&D to a foreign company to have their workers perform that work in another country? I understand the E-Verify requirements, but they don't apply to work done outside the US. I also understand the limits on the amount of work we can subcontract. But I am not seeing an actual prohibition on having a foreign subcontractor. What am I missing? The contract deliverable at issue is to do a first production run of a product that we will use for testing, evaluation and improvement. I've concluded that we can use a foreign supplier to make a first production run. The product is not a contract deliverable, but it is an element of the SOW for that deliverable. The research results are the deliverable. Thanks for any guidance or input!
