New SBA Regulations Address Multiple Award Contracts


Any contractor performing under a multiple award contract (MAC), including an IDIQ, a GSA Schedule Contract, a GWAC, or a multiple award task or delivery order contract, should be aware that small business regulation of such contracts will change drastically because of a recent rule by the Small Business Administration (SBA). These changes will go into effect on December 31, 2013. Highlights from the new rule appear below.

Agencies may set aside portions of their MACs for small businesses by:

- Establishing partial set-­asides based on CLINs;

- Reserving awards for small businesses when specific task order

requirements are not clearly defined; and

- Setting aside orders.

Please see full alert below for more information.
