12.0  Use of Federal Supply Schedule Information Technology Schedule Contracts. In accordance with FAR 8.404:

(Note: Special ordering procedures have been established for Special Item Number (SIN) 132-51 IT Professional Services; refer to the terms and conditions for this SIN.)

Orders placed pursuant to a Multiple Award Schedule (MAS), using the procedures in FAR 8.404, are considered to be issued pursuant to a full and open competition. Therefore, when placing orders under the Federal Supply Schedule, ordering offices need not seek further competition, synopsize the requirement, make a separate determination of fair and reasonable pricing, or consider small business set-asides in accordance with subpart 19.5. GSA has already determined the prices of items under schedule contracts to be fair and reasonable. By placing an order against a schedule using the procedures outlined below, the ordering office has concluded that the order represents the best value and results in the lowest overall cost alternative (considering price, special features, administrative costs, etc.) to meet the Government’s needs.

(a) Orders Placed At Or Below TheMicro-Purchase Threshold:

Ordering offices can place orders at or below the micro-purchase threshold with any Federal Supply Schedule Contractor.

(b) Orders Exceeding The Micro-Purchase Threshold But Not Exceeding The Maximum Order Threshold:

Orders should be placed with the Schedule Contractor that can provide the supply or service that represents the best value. Before placing an order, ordering offices should consider reasonably available information about the supply or service offered under MAS contracts by using the “GSA Advantage!” on-line shopping service, or by reviewing the catalogs/price lists of at least three (3) Schedule Contractors and selecting the delivery and other options available under the schedule that meets the agency’s needs. In selecting the supply or service representing the best value, the ordering office may consider:

  1. Special features of the supply or service that are required in effective program performance and that are not provided by a comparable supply or service;
  2. Trade-in considerations;
  3. Probable life of the item selected as compared with that of a comparable item;
  4. Warranty considerations;
  5. Maintenance availability;
  6. Past performance; and
  7. Environmental and energy efficiency considerations.

(c) Orders Exceeding The MaximumOrder Threshold:

Each schedule contract has an established maximum order threshold. This threshold represents the point where it is advantageous for the ordering office to seek a price reduction. In addition to following the procedures in paragraph b, above, and before placing an order that exceeds the maximum order threshold, order offices shall:

  1. Review additional Schedule Contractors’ catalogs/price lists or use the “GSA Advantage!” on-line shopping service;
  2. Based upon the initial evaluation, generally seek price reductions from the Schedule Contractor(s) appearing to provide the best value (considering price and other factors); and
  3. After price reductions have been sought, place the order with the Schedule Contractor that provides the best value and results in the lowest overall cost alternative. If further price reductions are not offered, an order may still be placed, if the ordering office determines that it is appropriate.

Note: For orders exceeding the maximum order threshold, the Contractor may:

1.      Offer a new lower price for this requirement (the Price Reduction Clause is not applicable to orders placed over the maximum order in FAR 52.216-19 Order Limitations);

2.      Offer the lowest price available under the contract; or

3.      Decline the order (orders must be returned in accordance with FAR 52.216-19).

(d) Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs):

The establishment of Federal Supply Schedule BPAs is permitted when following the ordering procedures in FAR 8.404. All schedule contracts contain BPA provisions. Ordering offices may use BPAs to establish accounts with Contractors to fill recurring requirements. BPAs should address the frequency of ordering and invoicing, discounts, and delivery locations and times.

(e) Price Reductions:

In addition to the circumstances outlined in paragraph c, above, there may be instances when ordering offices will find it advantageous to request a price reduction.

For example, when the ordering office finds a schedule supply or service elsewhere at a lower price or when a BPA is being established to full recurring requirements, requesting a price reduction could be advantageous. The potential volume of orders under these agreements, regardless of the size of the individual order, may offer the ordering office the opportunity to secure greater discounts. Schedule Contractors are not required to pass on to all schedule users a price reduction extended only to an individual agency for a specific order.

(f) Small Business:

For orders exceeding the micro-purchase threshold, ordering offices should give preference to the items of small business concerns when two (2) or more items at the same delivered price will satisfy the requirement.

(g) Documentation:

Orders should be documented, at a minimum, by identifying the Contractor the item was purchased from, the item purchased, and the amount paid. If an agency requirement in excess of the micro-purchase threshold is defined so as to require a particular brand name, product, or feature of a product peculiar to one manufacturer, thereby precluding consideration of a product manufactured by another company, the ordering office shall include an explanation in the file as to why the particular brand name, product, or feature is essential to satisfy the agency’s needs.

13.0 Federal Information Technology/ Telecommunication Standards Requirements

14.0 Security Requirements

In the event security requirements are necessary, the ordering activities may incorporate, in their delivery orders, a security clause in accordance with current laws, regulations, and individual agency policy; however, the burden of administering the security requirements shall be with the ordering agency.  If any costs are incurred as a result of the inclusion of security requirements, such costs will not exceed ten percent (10%) or $100,000, of the total dollar value of the order, whichever is lessor.

20.0 Year 2000 Warranty – Commercial Supply Items

(a)        As used in this clause, “Year 2000 compliant” means, with respect to information technology, that the information technology accurately processes date/time data (including, but not limited to, calculating, comparing and sequencing) from, into, and between the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, and the years 1999 and 2000, and leap year calculations, to the extent that other information technology used in combination with the information technology being acquired, properly exchanges date/time data with it.

(b)        The Contractor shall warrant that each hardware, software, and firmware product delivered under this contract shall be able to accurately process date time data (including, but not limited to, calculating, comparing, and sequencing) from, into, and between the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, including leap year calculations, when used in accordance with the product documentation provided by the Contractor, provided that all products (e.g. hardware, software, firmware) used in combination with  products properly exchange date time data with it.  If the contract requires that specific listed products must perform as a system in accordance with the foregoing warranty, then that warranty shall apply to those products as a system.  The duration of this warranty and the remedies available under this warranty shall include repair or replacement of any product whose non-compliance is discovered and made known to the Contractor in writing within ninety (90) days after acceptance (installation is considered acceptance).  The Contractor may offer an extended warranty to the Government to include repair or replacement of any product whose non-compliance is discovered and made known to the Contractor in writing at any time prior to June 1, 2000, or for a period of 6 months following acceptance (installation is considered acceptance) whichever is later.  Nothing in this warranty shall be construed to limit any rights or remedies the Government may otherwise have under this contract with respect to defects other than Year 2000 performance.

21.0  Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs)

Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 13.201(a) defines Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) as ” a simplified method of filling anticipated repetitive needs for supplies or services by establishing “charge accounts” with qualified sources of supply.” The use of Blanket Purchase Agreements under the Federal Supply Schedule Program is authorized in accordance with FAR 13.202(c) (3), which reads, in part, as follows:

“BPAs may be established with Federal Supply Schedule Contractors, if not inconsistent with the terms of the applicable schedule contract.”

Federal Supply Schedule contracts contain BPA provisions to enable schedule users to maximize their administrative and purchasing savings. This feature permits schedule users to set up “accounts” with Schedule Contractors to fill recurring requirements. These accounts establish a period for the BPA and generally address issues such as the frequency of ordering and invoicing, authorized callers, discounts, delivery locations and times. Agencies may qualify for the best quantity/volume discounts available under the contract, based on the potential volume of business that may be generated through such an agreement, regardless of the size of the individual orders. In addition, agencies may be able to secure a discount higher than that available in the contract based on the aggregate volume of business possible under a BPA. Finally, Contractors may be open to a progressive type of discounting where the discount would increase once the sales accumulated under the BPA reach certain prescribed levels. Use of a BPA may be particularly useful with the new Maximum Order feature. See the Suggested Format, contained in this Schedule Price List, for customers to consider when using this purchasing tool.

22.0  Contractor Team Arrangements

Federal Supply Schedule Contractors may use “Contractor Team Arrangements” (see FAR 9.6) to provide solutions when responding to a customer agency requirements.  The policy and procedures outlined in this part will provide more flexibility and allow innovative acquisition methods when using the Federal Supply Schedules.  See the additional information regarding Contractor Team Arrangements in this Schedule Pricelist.
