     National Property Management Association




Role of the Acquisition Team
        National Property Management Association




The role of the Acquisition Team is to
 exercise initiative and sound business
judgments to get the best value to meet
        the Government’s needs
         National Property Management Association




FAR 1.102-4 states that the Acquisition
 Team is empowered to make decisions
   within their areas of responsibility,
  including selection, negotiation, and
       administration of contracts
          National Property Management Association




 If a policy, procedure, strategy or practice,
   is in the best interest of the Government
and is not specifically addressed in the FAR,
 nor prohibited by law, Executive Order or
   regulations, do not assume it is prohibited
             National Property Management Association




Title VIII of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining
       Act of 1994 (P. L. 103-355) establishes
   acquisition policies resembling the commercial
                     marketplace
          National Property Management Association




    Performance Based Method
   A Performance Based Statement of Work
  should be written when the Government can
furnish only guidance and objectives pertaining
      to the goals of the product needed to
               accomplish the task.
           National Property Management Association




   Government only states needs and
         acceptable deliverables
Contractor is solely responsible for success
               of the contract
   Allows the Contractor to use their
      resources to perform the task
          National Property Management Association


Contractor uses their method to complete
                 the task.
 Contractor will be measured on their
    ability to achieve the needs and
               deliverables.
Needs deal specifically with the terms of
      how the deliverables perform
        National Property Management Association


Contractor must meet the minimum
    standards that are acceptable.
Where there are accredited industry
standards, such as written by NPMA
   in conjunction with ASTM, the
    accredited industry standards
     should be referenced by the
             government.
             National Property Management Association


                Design Method

 It will contain a Specification or Requirements
        Section detailing the specific tasks the
    Contractor will perform during the contract
                        period

The Statement of Work could include, but not be
  limited to, tasks such as design, build, test, and
                       training
            National Property Management Association

     engineering, configuration management,
           planning, and analysis, etc.

    in FAR10.001 to achieve maximum results

1.6 Competition in Contracting Act of
                1984 (CICA)

  The Competition in Contracting Act of 1984
 (CICA), at 10 U.S.C. 2304, requires the Federal
      Government to obtain full and open
                  competition
          National Property Management Association


   CICA avoids being restrictive to a sole-
    source allowing the bidder to dictate
                terms and costs
The government is not tied to a Contractor
 and unable to continue if the Contractor
            is no longer available
A sole source lessens the contractor’s need
   to be innovative in supplying the latest
                   and best
         National Property Management Association


 CICA can restrict competition, only if
   the acquisition is supported by a
 Justification and Approval (J&A) in
     accordance with FAR, Part 6

All follow-on efforts must be treated as
another contract therefore ; it must meet
the requirements outlined in FAR Part 6,
  or be supported by an approved J&A
                       .
           National Property Management Association



FAR Subpart 4.8 requires that each contract be
 documented to constitute a complete history of
               the transaction.

Authorized documents must be on file for any
 decision when full and open competition is not
                     sought
