FARmer posted a topic in Contract Award ProcessHello All, First off I’m just going to say that I am really being tested as an 1102 like I have never been tested before! To cut to the chase, if the Dept. of Interior has a MA IDIQ that contains an OCI clause that prohibits any vendor that holds a MA IDIQ contract (Prime and or Sub to the prime) from participating on any other contract supporting the Dept. of Interior, can the CO from another agency (supporting a division of the Dept. of Interior) make an OCI determination to make a contract award to a vendor that has one of these MA IDIQ contract? Other tidbit of info – Market research previously conducted by Dept. of Interior MA IDIQ CO determined that the MA IDIQ would not be appropriate to support the requirement (scope issue). Dept. of Interior farmed out the contracting work and low and behold, a vendor that holds the MA IDIQ Contract submitted a proposal to the solicitation posted on a within scope MA IDIQ. If the CO of the MA IDIQ believes that there is no way to mitigate any perceived Conflict of Interest, but the CO of the farmed out work believes the requirement has nothing to do with the scope of that IDIQ, and the vendor has no work on that MA IDIQ that would cause a conflict and has a firm mitigation strategy to prevent any conflict of interest, can the CO of the farmed out work make an OCI determination and make an award?
