Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Are SOW/PWS/SOO assessments available prior to submitting my requirements?
Yes. NITAAC's value-added services are available to customers anytime, including during market research. If you will be using a NITAAC vehicle for your procurement, an SOW/PWS/SOO review is available prior to submitting your requirement into e-GOS.
Exactly what role, responsibility and support does NITAAC Assisted Acquisition Services provide?
The responsibility of the NITAAC Contracting Officer (CO) for the assisted acquisition spans the entire acquisition life cycle, from market research and acquisition planning through close out of the order. NITAAC COs go beyond standard duties to assist with functions such as revising the SOW/SOO/PWS, and helping to develop Justifications for Exception to Fair Opportunity. While NITAAC offers such services as an added value, the NITAAC CO is not a replacement for essential partners in the acquisition such as the COR, budget officer and legal counsel.
