Section 1005.202: Exceptions.

(b)(1) The Office of Federal Procurement Policy and the Small Business Administration have extended the Pilot Program on Acquisition of Services from Small Businesses. It allows for a waiver of the synopsis requirement for services from competitive small businesses between $25,000 and $100,000. Contracting officers may waive the synopsis requirement after determining the following:

(1) Acquisitions covered by the waiver are for services (excluding those exempted from set-asides under the Small Business Competitiveness Demonstration Program) in amounts over $25,000, but not exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold ($100,000), of which supply items are expected to constitute less than 20 percent of the value of the contract;

(ii) The covered acquisitions will be set-aside for small businesses;

(iii) Quotes or offers for covered acquisitions will be solicited and obtained from a minimum of five small business concerns;

(iv) The Procurement Marketing and Access Network (PRO-Net) will be used to identify and solicit bids from a minimum of five small businesses; and

(v) If practicable, two sources not included in the previous solicitation for the same services will be solicited.
