Acquisition
Planning Questions

  1. Market Research & Commercial Item Use – 3 points total

    a. FAR Part 10 requires agencies to use market
    research results to identify whether a commercial item exists to meet agency
    needs. According to FAR Part 10, if no such commercial item exists, what steps
    must the agency next take to meet its requirements? (1 point)

    b. According to the Commerciality
    Determination Report written for the BSVD program, the required biosensor is
    not readily available in the commercial marketplace. Analyze the report and
    identify four areas where either the market research does not adequately
    address the requirements of FAR Part 10 or the thoroughness of documentation is
    lacking to support its conclusions. (1/2 point for each identified area with
    supporting rationale – total of 2 points)

  2. Competition – 2 points total

    FAR Part 6

If your agency decides to limit
competition for the BSVD contract, which FAR Subpart 6.3 exception is best
justified in relation to the facts presented? Provide rationale for your
response to include addressing any unique requirements contained in the FAR Subpart
6.3 exceptions. (2 points)

  1. Undefinitized Contract Actions (UCAs)
    – 4 points total

    DFARS Subpart 217.74

    In
    analyzing your alternatives to get this requirement on contract rapidly and
    responsibly, you are now considering using a letter contract – a type of
    undefinitized contract action (UCA). Under a UCA, the contractor starts work
    before all contract terms, specifications, or prices are agreed upon.

    Identify
    and explain four risks that are introduced into a program by use of a
    UCA. For each identified risk, what limitation in DFARS 217.7404 could be used
    to mitigate that risk? Explain. (1/2 point for each identified risk with
    supporting rationale and ½ point each for identifying and explaining how the
    applicable DFARS 217.7404 limitation mitigates that risk – total of 4 points)

    execution of a BSVD program development contract. Provide specific BSVD program
    details in your response
    . (1 point for each risk description – total 3
    points)

    b. Which one FAR Part 16 contract type (e.g.,
    firm fixed price, cost plus fixed fee, etc.) and, if applicable, contract
    incentive(s) – (i.e., delivery incentive, performance incentive, multiple
    incentive) best mitigates the risks to the BSVD program you identified above?
    Provide rationale for your response (3 points)
