Frequently Asked Questions
Who can enter requirements into e-GOS?
For CIO-SP3 and CIO-SP3 Small Business, anyone who is involved in the procurement process may enter information into e-GOS (e.g., contracting officer, contract specialist, COR). Identifying a contracting officer in the system is required and will be verified by NITAAC prior to the release of any solicitation. For CIO-CS any Purchasing Official may enter information into e-GOS.
What is e-GOS?
e-GOS is the electronic-Government Ordering System. It provides a mechanism to meet the GWAC fair opportunity requirements of FAR Part 16. You must use the system to compete and award orders under the CIO-SP3, CIO-SP3 Small Business and CIO-CS contracts.
Am I required to use e-GOS for all task and delivery orders or can I obtain quotes/proposals directly from contract holders?
In order to meet the fair opportunity requirements of FAR Part 1616.505(b) (1), all Task and Delivery orders must be processed through e-GOS. If, for some reason, the task or delivery order cannot be processed through e-GOS, the Ordering Contracting Officer is required to document fair opportunity in the task/delivery order file.
