Procurement Information Circular

         


May 10, 2000

CORRECTION OF PIC 99-18

PURPOSE: To update the enclosure to PIC 99-18, "Individual Procurement Action Reporting".

BACKGROUND: Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 97-15 added a new requirement at FAR section 4.601(e) for agencies to identify and report bundled contracts with a total contract value, including all options, exceeding $5 million. This reporting requirement is applicable to solicitation issued after December 27, 1999. Additionally, clarification of the instructions for Item 34--Other Preference Programs, is required for consistent interpretation.

GUIDANCE:

1. Revise Item 21 of the instructions for preparing Individual Procurement Action Report (NASA Form 507 series) to read as follows:

Item 21-Bundling of Contract Requirement. (1 position). Enter "Y" if the contract is a bundled contract with a total value, including options, exceeding $5,000,000. (See FAR 2.101 for the definition of "bundled contract".) Otherwise, enter "N".

Amend existing 507 data for bundled contracts where the solicitation was issued after December 27, 1999.

2. Revise the introductory text of Item 34 of the instructions for preparing Individual Procurement Action Report (NASA Form 507 series) to read as follows:

Item 34-Other Preference Programs. (1 position). Report the code that represents the preference program used in making the award. Report code "D" if no preference program applies or the preference is not otherwise listed. Leave this item blank if a HUBZone (Item 34a) or Small Disadvantaged Business (Item 34b) preference was used.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This PIC is effective as dated, and will remain in effect until canceled or superseded.
