Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an additional fee for scope reviews and assessments?
No. All of NITAAC services are value-added, and there is never an additional fee for SOW/PWS/SOO assessments. We return all assessments with recommendations to the customer within 24 hours, who can then choose to incorporate our comments or not. Our goal is to help our customers clarify their requirements for the best possible response from NITAAC contract holders.
Are evaluation criteria required?
As a best practice, NITAAC recommends providing the award evaluation criteria in all solicitations, and under FAR 16.505(b)(1)(iii), an evaluation criteria is required where the anticipated value of the award is expected to exceed $5M.
What is reviewed in a 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.
