FAR RIN: 9000-AN73 Publication ID: Fall 2018 
Title: ●Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR); FAR Case 2018-014, Increasing Task-Order Level Competition 

DoD, GSA, and NASA are proposing to amend the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement Section 876 of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, which would provide civilian agencies with an exception to the existing statutory requirement to include price to the Federal Government as an evaluation factor that must be considered in the evaluation of proposals for all contracts.  The exception would only apply to IDIQ contracts and to Federal Supply Schedule contracts for services that are priced at an hourly rate.  Furthermore, the exception would only apply in those instances where the Government intends to make a contract award to all qualifying offerors, thus affording maximum opportunity for effective competition at the task order level.  An offeror would be qualified only if it is a responsible source and submits a proposal that conforms to the requirements of the solicitation, meets any technical requirements, and is otherwise eligible for award.
