Federal law allows Agencies to award sole source contracts to the SBA on behalf of an eligible 8(a) firm of their choice without lengthy justification and approval processes. Contracts can be awarded in limits up to $6.5 million for manufacturing NAICS codes and $4 million for all other contracts.
A new hierarchy for open market procurements places highest priority with SDVOSBs first, then all other small business categories. This procurement authority, and its subsequent implementation, is a logical extension of VA’s mission to care for our Nation’s Veterans. The Veteran’s Administration, through the Center for Verification and Evaluation (CVE), ensures that set-aside funds are awarded to legitimate firms owned and controlled by Veterans and Service-disabled Veterans. During Verification, the CVE verifies SDVOSBs/VOSBs according to the tenets found in Title 38 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 74 that address Veteran eligibility, ownership, and control.
The Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Concern Procurement Program is to provide procuring agencies with the authority to set acquisitions aside for exclusive competition among service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns, as well as the authority to make sole source awards to service-disabled veteran-owned small business concerns if certain conditions are met. (See Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 13 C.F.R. § 125.8-125.10). A CO may award a sole source contract if:
• If the requirement is not exempted from SDVO contracting and cannot be set-aside.
• The CO does not have a reasonable expectation that at least two responsible SDVO SBCs will submit offers.
• The anticipated award price of the contract, including options, will not exceed:
o $6.5M for all manufacturing requirements
o $4.0M for all other requirements
o Award can be made at a fair market price.
