Civilian agency versions of form DD2579, Small Business Coordination Record

Recommended Posts

Department of Defense uses form DD2579, Small Business Coordination Record, in accordance with DFARS 219.201 and DFARS PGI 253.219-70.

(1) What other forms do civilian, non-DoD agencies use to document the contracting officer's decision re: small business set-asides and coordination with the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization? DHS? VA? NASA? Energy? GSA?

(2) Do any frogs have Internet links to see these documents in PDF or Word?

 

From this thread, PepeTheFrog sees that GSA uses the "2689."

Department of State uses the DS-1910 as our required form.   It was recently automated as more of a database than a form so i have no idea how to attach it now.

Small business coordination, such a cog in the wheel of efficiency. All such forms should be done away with. #MCGA

For the civilian, non-DoD, federal frogs: How would your professional life change if you were forced to use the DoD's form, DD2579, instead of your civilian version?

Is the DD2579 inferior or superior?

What are the important differences?

We are going to build a wall-- a big, beautiful wall-- around the Small Business Act and the Small Business Administration!

We will no longer surrender this country, or its people, to the false song of rent-seeking, identity-based redistribution schemes, programs designed to be unavoidably corrupt in practice, and federal-job-securing regulatory and enforcement schemes which only create private-sector compliance, legal, accounting, and consulting burdens...Make Contracting Great Again!

Be careful, Gordon Shumway, there are some bad hombres out there!

PepeTheFrog is also calling for a complete and total shutdown of all SBA regulations, effective immediately. We have no choice, folks...no choice!

HUD uses form Small Business Administration Coordination Record.  It's required for actions greater than $150K that are not totally set-aside for small business concerns pursuant to FAR 19.502-2.

Our form (DS-1910 automated) has  to go to the small business office even if it is a 100% set aside for small business.  They get to help us decide which socio-economic category we should be using.  Our published pecking order for this year (several years)  is HUBZONE, SDVOSB, and WOSB.  So the COs must prove with market research that each in turn cannot meet the need.  If none can, then you can go regular small business or large business as justified. 

The form is very similar to the DoD form in content but not looks of course. It is passed electronically in our MyData system.

There are more than a dozen different forms that are the equivalent of the DD 2579, and I see a few of them every day in my role as a PCR.  NASA has its Form 1787, the CDC has a computer based system without a form number associated with it, GSA uses its Form 2689, plus there are two different versions of the DD 2579 that are being used at this time. 

The purpose of those documents is to inform the Small Business Specialists at the various organizations what the acquisition plan is in a nutshell so that they can concur with or dispute the chosen plan of action.  After that the forms are sent to the appropriate SBA PCR for concurrence. 

When I receive the forms, I check whether or not the plan is to set the procurement aside or not, along with a check of the selected NAICS code.  I frequently send the documents back for incorrect NAICS codes, and I have non-concurred with the acquisition plan to not set the procurement aside on a number of occasions.  After that, it becomes a negotiation, in which I show them how they can set the procurement aside, show how their market research was not complete, and how their organization is not meeting a specific goal. 

If I truly believe that the procurement should be set aside and the KO still refuses, I non-concur with the Small Business Coordination form.  After that I can issue a SBA Form 70 which appeals the issue first the local HCA of the organization and if no agreement is reached, it ramps up to the senior HCA at the organization's HQ and the SBA Office of Government Contracting executives.
