“Fair-Opportunity-to-be-Considered” Rule

“Fair-Opportunity-to-be-Considered” Rule: All prime contractors (including their designated subcontractors, if applicable) are considered to possess the basic qualifications for success in the professional and technical services of the contracts awarded to them. Therefore, the statutory and regulatory requirement for “fair opportunity to be considered” (based on the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act (FASA) and Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 16.5) will be deemed to have been met by the announcement (through the designated Internet web site or e-mail) of all Task Orders that do not fall under one of the exceptions at FAR 16.505(b) (2). Each Task Order will be evaluated, at a minimum, on selection criteria, which include past performance, technical/management approach, and price/cost.
