Procurement Information Circular

July 2, 2007



PURPOSE:  To provide guidance on the completion of the Extent Competed field in FPDS-NG


BACKGROUND:  FPDS-NG does not currently require the Extent Competed field to be completed on Delivery Orders, Task Orders, or Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA) Calls.  Lack of this data is causing the competition statistics for the centers and the Agency to decrease.  A Change Request was unanimously approved by the FPDS-NG CCB to require the Extent Competed field to be completed on all document types.  This change will not be deployed in FPDS-NG until FY 2008, but NASA is implementing this change immediately. 


GUIDANCE:  Effective immediately, the Extent Competed field must be filled out for all new awards in FPDS-NG including Delivery/Task Orders, and BPA Calls. 


EFFECTIVE DATE:  This PIC is effective as dated and will remain in effect until cancelled or superseded.
