8.405-2 (c)(2)(ii) Ordering Procudures for services requiring a SOW

Recommended Posts

Some of my co-workers feel strongly that all solicitations under this section must be posted to e-Buy even if the amount is modest (say$1m) and you have conducted extensive market research that shows 3 long established vendors that supply the required service as the main part of their business and who are willing to submit a proposal. e-Buy is not a required system (unless brand name specifications are being asked for). My position is that CO's may send the solicitation to the identified 3 vendors and be fully compliant with the FAR. Please provide your thoughts about this issue.

Thanks,

You are not required to use eBuy, unless you are in DoD or another agency that requires use of e-Buy in certain circumstances (e.g. >$150k). Check your agency regulations to see if you must use it.

In my office, we are required to use e-Buy to post all solicitations based off a GSA vehicle. But like Napolik said, check your agency supplement and other guidance. The difference between having three vendors say they are willing to submit a proposal and having three vendors submit a proposal can be re-releasing your solicitation.

Thanks, it is not required. Maybe the key is that the folks feeling eBuy must be used are ex DoD

Good point, thanks
