INDIVIDUAL PROCUREMENT ACTION REPORTING

 

PURPOSE:  To provide updated instructions for preparing the Individual Procurement Action Reporting.

 

BACKGROUND:  Guidance currently outlined in the NASA FAR Supplement at 1804.71 has been incorporated into this Procurement Information Circular.  NOTE: Reporting is now required for all actions regardless of dollar value.

 

GUIDANCE:  Centers shall follow the enclosed instructions in preparing the AMS Input Sheets.  Please read carefully as there are many new fields required.  The new fields are identified by highlighting in the electronic version of this PIC and by a left margin bar in the paper version.  Please make sure that anyone who fills out AMS input sheets has a copy of these instructions. 

 

AMS Input Sheets for orders are to be used for Purchase Orders, Delivery Orders, and Task Orders.  AMS Input Sheets for basic contracts are to be used to report initial award of indefinite delivery contracts, e.g., SEWP, even when there will not be any money obligated on the contract.

 

CANCELLATION:  PIC 03-19 is hereby canceled.  New AMS Input Sheets, the PPC Code Matrix, and a list of Major Programs are enclosed.

 

EFFECTIVE DATE:  This PIC is effective as dated and will remain in effect until canceled or superseded.

PREPARING INDIVIDUAL PROCUREMENT ACTION REPORTS

 

Individual Procurement Action Reports shall be prepared and submitted to Headquarters for each procurement action.  All awards are now considered reportable, regardless of dollar value.  Separate forms are provided for each award type.

 

The Acquisition Management System (AMS) (was FACS) report shall have information as of the last day of the month and shall arrive in NASA Headquarters not later than the close of business on the fifth work day following each month being reported.  The installation procurement officer should establish a method for ensuring that the AMS procurement submission and the IFMP financial submission for the month include the same contracts.

 

As of October 1, 2003, a new contract numbering scheme is being adopted by NASA.  This numbering scheme is in accordance with procedures identified by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in the Joint Financial Management Improvement Program.  Centers will need to use the new numbers on all new actions with an award date on or after October 1, 2003, regardless of when the solicitation was issued, when the award becomes effective, or when performance starts.  Existing awards will not need to be renumbered, but new task orders against existing contracts must use the new scheme.  Definitizations of letter contracts that are performed by issuance of a modification of the letter contract do not require a new number.  Hybrid procurements should use the type of action that most closely represents the procurement.

 

This scheme provides for the possibility of separate number series for each type of action, allowing for over 50,000 annual actions for each type.  However, Centers with smaller annual numbers of actions may elect to use a single series of action numbers across all types.  Centers are not prohibited from assigning blocks of numbers to various offices if desired.

 

NASA Numbering Scheme

2 alpha characters for Agency - NN

1 alpha character for Center - same letter as used in IFMP (first letter of Center name, except for GRC which uses "C")

2 numeric characters for FY.

4 digits for action number; 2 alphas, 2 numbers (AA01, AA02 ... AA99, AB01, AB02, etc. through ZZ99)

1 alpha character for type of action 

 

Codes for type of action

A  Cooperative agreement

B  BOA, GWAC, or other indefinite delivery type contract

C  Contract (except IDC)

D  Delivery order against a BOA, FSS, or other IDC, or call against a BPA*

F   Facilities Contract

G  Grant (other than training)

H  Training grant


I  Intragovernmental transaction

P  Purchase order (not issued against an existing contract or agreement)

S  Space Act agreement

T  Task order against a service (including R&D) contract*

Z  BPA (basic award only)

*To be used for stand-alone reportable award documents

Code

Solicitation Type

A

Full and Open Competition-Sealed Bid.  Enter this when the sealed bidding (See FAR 6.401(a)) method of contracting was used.

B

Full and Open Competition-Competitive Proposal.  Enter this when FAR Part 15, Contracting by Negotiation, procedures were used for a competitive solicitation.

C

Full and Open Competition-Combination.  Enter this when any combination of competitive procedures (e.g., two-step sealed bidding) was used (see FAR 6.102(c)).

D

Architect-Engineer.  Enter this if the action resulted from selection of sources for architect-engineer (A&E) contracts in accordance with Public Law 92-582 and procedures in FAR Subpart 36.6 (see FAR 6.102(d)(1)).  The selection of a potential A&E contractor is made by an A&E Evaluation Board conducted in accordance with 41 U.S.C 541 et seq.  This selection process is considered a competitive procedure and shall be reported as a competitive award.  When award is an A&E contract and was the result of a small business set-aside use Code K in lieu of this code.

E

NASA Research Announcement/Announcement of Opportunity.  Enter if the action resulted from competitive selection of basic research proposals as a result of a broad agency announcement. (see FAR 6.102(d)(2)).

F

Multiple-Award Schedule.  Enter if the action is an order issued against a multiple-award schedule using the procedures in FAR 8.404 (see FAR 6.102(d)(3)).  This code shall be used for multiple-award schedule contracts (mandatory or optional).  This code may be used for ADP procurements, unless the solicitation utilized make-or-model specifications.  Use of the multiple-award schedule program is considered to be a competitive procedure because competitive procedures were used by GSA to make the basic multiple-award schedule contract awards under 41 U.S.C 259(b)(3)(A).  For reporting purposes, an order issued against a multiple-award schedule shall be reported as a competitive award.

G

Alternate Sources.  Report this code if the action resulted from the use of procedures that provide for full and open competition after exclusion of sources:

 - To reduce overall costs pursuant to FAR 6.202(a)(1).

 - To have a facility available for national defense or industrial mobilization pursuant to FAR 6.202(a)(2).

 - To establish or maintain an essential engineering, research or development capability pursuant to FAR 6.202(a)(3).

 - To ensure the continuous availability of a reliable source of supply for such property or service pursuant to FAR 6.202(a)(4).

 - To satisfy projected needs for such product or service based on a history of high demand pursuant to FAR 6.202(a)(5).

K

Set-Asides.  Enter if the action resulted from use of procedures for set-asides pursuant to FAR 6.203.  This includes small business set-asides, (excluding architect-engineer contracts—use Code D), actions under the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program, JWOD Nonprofit Agency Awards, and 8(a) contract awards that were competed pursuant to FAR 6.204.

L

Other Than Full and Open Competition.  Enter if the action resulted from use of other than full and open competition pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 2304(c).  The conditions or exceptions permitting contracting without providing for full and open competition are prescribed in FAR 6.302.  Enter this code for noncompetitive awards made under the authority of Section 8(a) of the Small Business Act (see FAR Subpart 19.8).  This code shall also be used for all ADP procurements where the solicitation utilized make-and-model only specifications.

 

Item 42–-Authority for Other Than Full and Open Competition.  (1 position).  When Item 41 is coded “L”, this item must be completed.  Enter the applicable code from the categories listed below.  This item identifies the solicitation process and not the extent of competition obtained.

B

Follow-on Contract.  Enter when the contract action is under 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1) and it is likely that the award of follow-on contracts must be to the original source because award to any other source would result in (A) substantial duplication of cost to the Government that is not expected to be recovered through competition or (B) unacceptable delays in fulfilling the agency’s requirements (see FAR 6.302-1(a)(2)(ii) and (iii)).

C

Unsolicited Research Proposal.  Enter when the contract action is under 10 U.S.C. 2304(c)(1) as the result of acceptance of an unsolicited research proposal that demonstrates a unique and innovative concept, the substance of which (A) is not otherwise available to the Government and (B) does not resemble the substance of a pending competitive acquisition (see FAR 6.302-1(a)(2)(i)).

D
