  1. My agency does not issue Government Bills of Lading. I am establishing a competitive, single FSS BPA for supplies. The FSS terms for delivery are FOB-Origin for both CONUS and OCONUS. The total amount for shipping that was quoted for the base and all option periods exceeds $25K. I realize that FAR 13 applies to open market items acquired under FSS orders. I also know that I am required to determine the price to be fair and reasonable and insert appropriate open market clauses for those items (as well mark them as such in accordance with FAR 8.402(f)). My question is, am I supposed to synopsize the open market portion since it's estimated to exceed $25K? There are no synopsis exceptions in the FAR that apply. That said, it's pointless to synopsize the OPEN MARKET shipping when it is inextricably linked to the purchase of the FFS supply items. Thoughts?
