My company purchased another large company; both companies held several IDIQ's issued by the same agencies for the same work. Through the novation process, the Contracting Officers allowed retention of one of the two IDIQ's and ceased issuing task orders under the other. I understand that the CO has full authority to accept or reject a novation. The question though is whether one company can hold two IDIQ awards (while all other awardees have one contract). I'm asking the question because of internal strife and resistance to the CO's decision on one contract. I'm hoping to settle the issues clearly. I have the anti-assignment statutes, but wondered if anyone knew of any other regulation, prohibiting the award of multiple contracts to different divisions of the same company, perhaps based on the competition regulations. So hypothetically, could a company with multiple divisions win multiple awards under the same umbrella contract? I hope that's clear. Thanks for your assistance.
