FAR 19.804-4 Repetitive acquisitions, indicates that "In order for repetitive acquisitions to be awarded through the 8(a) Program, there must be separate offers and acceptances." The two paragraphs that follow vaguely discuss specific requirements for BOA's and IDIQ's. I'm reading separate offers and acceptances as beng applicable to individual orders like those placed against a BPA.

I'm primarily interested in setting up a directed single award BPA with an 8(a) firm (Part 13 BPA as opposed to Part 8 Schedule) but the requirement to obtain individual acceptances would make this approach unappealing as I'd expect to have 50-75 orders per year. The total value of orders is probably $250K per year. I'm not clear if doing an IDIQ contract with an established maximum would get me out of the separate offers/acceptances.

I'm wondering if anyone else has found a way to streamline this?

Have you asked the SBA office that is the servicing office for the firm. I suspect they will work with you to help simplify especially if your agency has a agreement with SBA regarding expedited offer acceptance for needs under SAP.
