Contract with OPP via Sole Source
Can I order BOOST products under a sole source contract?
YES! The Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) justifies the sole source procurement of BOOSTSM products under the Women-Owned Small Business sole source authority. They are priced below the Simplified Acquisition Threshold and can stand alone or be included as part of a larger project. Our team can assist you with sole source justification.
On September 14, 2015, the Small Business Administration published a final rule to implement section 825 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 allowing sole source awards to Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSBs) or Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Businesses (EDWOSBs) in industries where women-owned small businesses have historically been under-represented.
OPP is an Economically-Disadvantaged Woman-Owned Small Business and the BOOSTSM service products fall under a WOSB under-represented NAICS code (§ 127.501)
OPP is a responsible contractor – OPP is rated “exceptional” in over 90% of our Contractor Performance Assessment Rating System (CPARS) assessments. Our GSA Schedules have been audited twice and both times received an “exceptional” rating.
OPP has trade-marked our service packages which involve a combination of commercial tools and proprietary processes. There are no other firms that provide this unique combination of services. There is no reasonable expectation that two or more EDWOSBs would submit credible offers for these services packages or that another bidder could provide services of comparable quality and value because the tools included are provided at no additional charge—a five figure savings right there.
The anticipated award price of the BOOSTSM products are under the simplified acquisition threshold and, even with follow-on options, the total contract would not exceed the $4,000,000 maximum ceiling for sole source; The BOOSTSM price is fair and reasonable. In fact, when the value of the subscription tools that are included at no charge is factored in, the price is below market and represents an excellent value for the money.
