PeriOptimization has teamed with Coley & Associates (Coley), a VA-Verified SDVOSB, to provide the Department of Veterans Affairs with several ways to procure our PeriOptimization software solutions, including SDVOSB Sole Source, SDVOSB Set-Aside, and GSA Schedule Sole Source or Set-Aside. Each of these methods simplifies and speeds up the procurement process.
SDVOSB Sole Source
(See FAR 19.1406)
One of the quickest methods for procuring our software solutions is the SDVOSB Sole Source method. FAR 19.1406 allows sole source awards to SDVOSB concerns provided that:
Only one SDVOSB can satisfy the requirement (Note: This does not mean the only source exists, but means that there is only one qualified "SDVOSB" that provides the service or solution);
The award will be less than $3.5 Million; and
The price is reasonable.
Note: GSA Schedules can be used to award a sole-source action.
Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Set-Aside (See FAR 19.1405)
Rule of Two: Under the Vets First rule, VA contracting officers must restrict competition to SDVOSB firms when they have reasonable expectation that two or more SDVOSB firms will respond to the solicitation and that award will be made at a fair market price.
This method streamlines the acquisition process, reduces the risk of protests, and enables the award to be made in days or weeks versus months.
GSA Schedule Set-Aside Orders
(See FAR 8.405-5)
PeriOptimization’s Software and Services will soon be listed on Coley & Associate’s GSA Schedule # GS-35F-0590N.
Agencies may set aside orders and Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) issued under GSA Schedules for Service-Disabled, Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB).
Contracting does not have to be difficult. PeriOptimization has teamed up with Coley to provide agencies with multiple methods to help make the process of acquiring our solutions easier. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you accomplish more.
