In general terms, what does having a "directed source" do for a Prime with a certified procurement system other than relieve them of justifying the decision not to compete? I have a case where the Prime is considering using "directed source" as rationale for saying that a review of price reasonableness is not required (cost or price analysis). The logic here is that since the CO directed the source, the Prime has no option and therefore has to purchase at the offeror's price. I wholeheartedly disagree with this - source direction has nothing to do with price reasonableness. Has anybody experienced a case where source direction was successfully linked to price reasonableness?
