Hi, I am reviewing a SOO (per FAR 37.6) from a technical office. Mostly traditionally performance-based, it does contain prescriptive elements of "how" under certain IRs akin to a traditional SOW. Though unusual given the differing purposes, I see nothing in the FAR or my agency supplement that prohibits the mixing of PBC with more traditional methods if it makes logical operational sense. Does anyone have examples where a SOO and SOW were mixed (e.g. as separate sections) under one solicitation? In my case, neither would be on a fixed-price basis. thanks
I have always believed that the government may allow a contractor to write the SOW or requirements for the government. The government can use these specifications in their solicitation, but the contractor cannot bid on the resulting contract from those specifications that they supplied because it would be a conflict of interest. I have searched through the FAR and cannot find any specific FAR language that absolutely prohibits the practice. This would be a unique service where there is a limited number of contractors available to complete the work with different methods of completing the contract. Any thoughts. Thanks. This is still in pre-solicitation but will be a time sensitive procurement due to a very narrow weather window.
