The Small Business Administration (SBA) Proposed Rule May 5, 2015

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has published a proposed rule that would amend its regulations to implement section 825 of the fiscal year 2015 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which authorized contracting officers to award sole source contracts to women-owned small businesses (WOSBs) and economically disadvantaged WOSBs (EDWOSBs) and shortened the time period for SBA to conduct a study to determine the industries in which WOSBs are underrepresented. To that end, SBA proposes to amend 13 CFR part 127 as follows:.Amend 127.101, concerning the type of contracting assistance available under part 127, to include the new sole source authority .Amend 127.102 to change the definitions of the terms "EDWOSB requirement" and "WOSB requirement" to include sole source contracts .Amend 127.500, which concerns the industries in which a contracting officer is authorized to restrict competition under the WOSB program, to address the new sole source authority .Amend 127.503 by adding two new paragraphs to incorporate the statutory language of section 825 granting authority to award sole source contracts to EDWOSBs and WOSBs .Amend 127.507, concerning contracting opportunities at or below the simplified acquisition threshold, to address sole source awards under the WOSB program .Amend 127.600 to include procedures for protests involving sole source contracts to WOSBs and EDWOSBs In addition, to meet the new January 2, 2016, deadline for determining the industries in which WOSBs are underrepresented, SBA also proposes to amend its definitions of "underrepresentation" and "substantial underrepresentation." The change would provide SBA the flexibility necessary to conduct the most reliable and relevant study of WOSB participation in federal contracting would align the definitions more closely with the statutory intent of the 2013 and 2015 NDAA. Comments on the proposed rule are due by June 30, 2015. http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2015-05-01/pdf/2015-10331.pdf

Defense Innovation Marketplace: Defense and Industry Narrow Communications Gap January 23, 2013

As a major cost- and time-saving measure, DoD officials developed the new Defense Innovation Marketplace website to narrow the communication gap and help government and industry stay up to date on developing projects that support the Services across DoD. The site is part of the ‘Better Buying Power’ initiative to reduce costs. The website was developed as a centralized online resource for all branches of the military and small-business owners to invigorate innovation and increase communication. It allows Industry performers to learn about investment priorities and capability needs across DoD Agencies. Industry can also use the site to submit proprietary IR&D summary reports which are separately stored, accessed and used solely in compliance with DFAR rules. For Government and Military DoD personnel, the Marketplace provides new search tools to assess and leverage industry technology projects for current future programs. For access and in depth information regarding the Defense Innovation Marketplace, visit http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/submit/qSubmit/index.html.
