Frequently Asked Questions
When submitting an SOW, does my contracting officer need to be involved throughout the entire process?
Yes. e-GOS is designed for easy collaboration, so both the end user and the contracting officer can remain involved. It is important to note that the contracting officer has the final selection authority for all procurements, and will be verified by NITAAC prior to any RFP or solicitation being released to the eligible contract holders.
What is reviewed in an SOW assessment?
The NITAAC team looks at scope, contract type, periods of performance, evaluation criteria, specificity of tasking and deliverables and the deliverable schedule. We will also note whether the SOW is performance based. NITAAC will provide suggestions for improving the SOW/PWS/SOO for all review areas as necessary, but the final decision on implementing any suggestions rests with the acquiring agency.
Can NITAAC provide assistance with writing the SOW/SOO/PWS?
Starting in FY16, NITAAC will offer assisted acquisition services to all customer. These services are provided to both federal civilian and DoD agencies.
