                                  CAIMAN MOBIS OVERVIEW

Under the General Services Administration federal supply schedule contract Mission Oriented
Business Integrated Services (MOBIS), solicitation no. TFTP-MC-000874-B, Caiman provides a
broad spectrum of products and services focused on improving the performance of federal agencies
and other organizations. Services range from specialize in the following business and IT
management areas: Project & Program Management; Training and System Deployment; Process
Analysis & Optimization; and Creative Services. The MOBIS contract is an indefinite delivery,
indefinite quantity multiple award schedule contract that provides for task orders to be placed as firm
fixed-price or time and material using the labor categories and ceiling rates defined in the contract.
The order type is at the discretion of the ordering agency. To learn more about Caiman’s MOBIS
contract, please visit our Web site at http://www.caimanconsulting.com/

Under the federal supply schedule program, GSA enters into contracts with commercial firms to
provide supplies and services at stated prices for given periods of time. Orders are placed directly
with the schedule contractor, and deliveries are made directly to the customer. The federal supply
schedule program mirrors commercial buying practices more than any other procurement process in
the federal government today. It provides customers with literally millions of state-of-the-art, high-
quality commercial products and services at volume discount pricing on a direct delivery basis. The
federal supply schedule program also offers the benefits of shorter lead times, lower administrative
costs, and reduced inventories.

Multiple award schedule contracts are awarded to contractors supplying comparable commercial
supplies and services at government-negotiated, pre-approved prices. They provide federal
agencies with the variety and the flexibility necessary to select the best-valued professional services
to meet their requirements. Consistent with the Competition in Contracting Act, multiple award
schedule contracts are competitive in that participation in the program is open to all responsible
sources, and orders placed following the procedures in Federal Acquisition Regulation 8.4 result in
the lowest overall cost alternative. Therefore, when placing orders under federal supply schedules,
ordering offices need not: 1) seek further competition, 2) synopsize the requirement, 3) make a
separate determination of fair and reasonable pricing, or 4) consider small business programs. GSA
already has determined the prices of items under schedule contracts to be fair and reasonable.

Advantages of Using the GSA MOBIS Services Contract Include:

   Five-year contract-ordering period with one five year option.

  Indefinite delivery / indefinite quantity contract with no ceiling and no maximum order
  limitations.

  Available to all federal agencies and authorized organizations.
  No synopsis (FedBizOpps posting) is required – all competitive requirements have been met.
  Direct customer and contractor relationship – no transfer of funds to GSA required.

                                 HOW TO USE THIS SCHEDULE


In accordance with the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994 and the Federal Acquisition
Reform Act of 1996, GSA’s streamlined ordering procedures have reduced the government
procurement process to a few simple steps. While the federal supply schedule program already has
determined these rates to be fair and reasonable, ordering offices must determine that the total price
is reasonable for the specific tasks required by the agency. Based on quotes requested from three
contractors that appear to offer the best value (considering scope of services offered, hourly rates,
contractor’s locations and other factors, as appropriate), the ordering agency selects the one that best
meets its needs.

This contract is available to all federal for domestic use. Executive agencies, other federal
agencies, mixed-ownership government corporations, and the District of Columbia; government
contractors authorized in writing by a federal agency pursuant to FAR Part 51; and other activities
and organizations authorized by statute or regulation to use GSA as a source of supply may use this
contract. Additionally, contractors are encouraged to accept orders received from activities within
the executive branch of the federal government. GSA Order ADM 4800.2E provides a complete list
of authorized schedule users.

Total price for services are established at the time the task order is placed and are based on the rates
offered in the Caiman Consulting MOBIS Price List catalog. The resultant task order details the
estimated number of hours, the labor categories to be provided, and any related items. If the
ordering agency’s contracting officer chooses to purchase services on a labor-hour-time-and-material
basis, the resultant task order will specify the not-to-exceed price, the labor categories proposed
(with the hourly rates for each), and any applicable travel and other direct costs.

Federal Acquisition Regulation 8.4 provides procedures for the acquisition of services using GSA
schedule contracts.

For orders of supplies and/or services below $3,000: Place the order with any Schedule
contractor that can meet the agency's needs. Though not required to solicit from a specific number of
Schedule contractors, ordering activities should attempt to distribute orders among contractors (FAR
8.405).

For Supplies and Services Not Requiring a SOW: Survey at least three Schedule contractors
through the GSA Advantage!® online shopping service or review the catalogs or pricelists of at least
three Schedule contractors (more if over $200,000) pricelists (the GSA Advantage!® online
shopping service may be used to facilitate this review and seek additional price reductions where
appropriate; evaluate; and make a best value selection.

                                                                                    GS-10F-0057W
For Services Requiring a Statement of Work: To summarize the process for ordering services, the
government agency:

1. Prepares a request for quotation that includes:

        A performance-based statement of work that outlines the work to be performed. Type of
       task order – time and material or firm fixed price. Basis to be used for contractor selection
       (best value, etc.).

2. Transmits the request for quotations to contractors:

       Selects at least three (more if task order value is more than $1 million) qualified contractors
       on the schedule. Note: Department of Defense agencies need to refer to DFAR 208.4 when
       ordering services over $100,000 using the GSA schedules. Sends requests for quotations to
       selected contractors. GSA’s e-buy provides ordering agencies a streamlined, Web-based
       system for ordering services using the GSA schedules.

3. Evaluates quotes and selects the contractor to receive the order:

        Evaluates responses based on the factors identified in the requests for quotations. Places the
       order directly with the schedule contractor that represents the best value and results in the
       lowest overall cost alternative, considering price, special qualifications, administrative
       costs, and so forth. The requesting government agency’s contracting office directly issues the
       task order to the selected contractor without GSA involvement in the procurement process.
       All task order reporting requirements and remission of fees to GSA are the responsibility of
       the contractor.


                                      CONTRACT CLAUSES

GSA multiple award schedule contracts are awarded in accordance with the provisions of Federal
Acquisition Regulation Part 12 – Acquisition of Commercial Items. As much as possible, GSA
multiple award schedule contracts include only those clauses required, either to implement
provisions of law or executive orders applicable to the acquisition of commercial items or
determined to be consistent with customary commercial practice. Ordering agencies may
incorporate provisions in their task orders that are essential to their specific requirements
(e.g., security, hazardous material handling, and key personnel) provided they do not conflict with
the terms and conditions of the contract. These provisions, when required, must be included in the
individual task order, and any costs necessary to comply with the provision(s) will be included in the
task order proposal price estimate, unless otherwise prohibited by law.

          ORDERS EXCEEDING THE MAXIMUM ORDER THRESHOLD (MOT)

All GSA MAS contracts contain a price point called a maximum order threshold. This threshold is
not a ceiling on an order size; rather, it is a point where the ordering agency needs to consider
additional contractors (more than three) and seek discounts from the listed catalog rates.

                                                     8

When placing an order that exceeds the maximum order threshold, ordering offices shall follow the
standard ordering procedures, and the following additional procedures:

1. Consider additional schedule contractors (more than three)

2. Seek price reductions from the schedule contractor(s) offering the best value (considering price
and other factors)

3. Selected contractor(s) may choose to offer a lower price for the requirement (the price reduction
clause is not applicable to orders placed over the maximum order threshold)

4. After price reductions have been sought, place the order with the schedule contractor that
provides the best value and results in the lowest overall cost alternative. If further price reductions
are not offered, an order may still be placed, if the ordering office determines that it is appropriate.

                             BLANKET PURCHASE AGREEMENTS

Ordering activities may establish blanket purchase agreements under any GSA schedule contract.
A GSA schedule blanket purchase agreement simplifies the filling of recurring needs for supplies or
services, while leveraging a customer’s buying power by taking advantage of quantity discounts,
thus saving administrative time and reducing paperwork.

Blanket purchase agreements are established in accordance with the procedures in Federal
Acquisition Regulation Part 8.405-3. An ordering activity may request a price reduction based on
the total estimated volume of the blanket purchase agreement, regardless of the size of individual
orders. Blanket purchase agreements may be established with one or more scheduled contractors at
the discretion of the ordering activity. When establishing multiple blanket purchase agreements, the
ordering activity must specify the procedures for placing orders under the blanket purchase
agreements. A GSA schedule blanket purchase agreement should not exceed five years in length,
but may do so to meet program requirements. A blanket purchase agreement may extend beyond the
current term of its GSA schedule contract, so long as there are option periods in the GSA schedule
contract that, if exercised, will cover the blanket purchase agreement’s period of performance.
