There is a new flexibility to enhance competition under IDIQ contracts including under the Federal Supply Schedule program. Section 876 of the Fiscal Year 2019 John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act gives GSA the authority to focus on creating robust competition at the order level, rather than evaluating prices for services acquired on an hourly rate basis at the contract level.
To that end, GSA’s Office of Procurement Ombudsman will be hosting a series of listening sessions between GSA and industry in order to hear industry's thoughts and ideas regarding the best way to implement this authority. If you would like to share your thoughts and ideas with the GSA Senior Procurement Executive and other GSA subject matter experts, please register for any one of the dates below and the Ombudsman's Office will contact you with further information and instructions. If you just want to listen, that’s okay too.
