Ordering Contracting Officer (OCO) Guidelines

EIS is an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract requiring task orders (TOs) in accordance with FAR 16.505. Agencies ordering services from EIS must follow the ordering process in accordance with FAR 16.505. A contracting officer (or ordering official) with a delegated procurement authority (DPA) must place a TO for services. After the ordering contracting officer (OCO) awards the TO, EIS allows for the placement of service orders within the limitations of the TO and the contract. Only OCOs and contracting officers’ representatives (CORs) may place a service order.

Ordering Contracting Officer (OCO)

  • Awards, administers, and closes out task orders (TOs)
  • Determines fair and reasonable prices for catalog items, task order unique CLINs and individual case basis CLINs
  • Reports past performance
  • Serves as an authorized official if the ordering agency does not have contracting officers
  • Ordering Contracting Officer (OCO) MUST provide a fair opportunity (FO) to all awardees in accordance with FAR 16.505

Task Order Contracting Officer’s Representative (COR)

  • Replaces designated agency representatives (DARs)
  • Has delegated authority by the OCO to:
    • Place service orders

Fair Opportunities

The digital transformation of federal government IT is underway.  EIS is a GSA contract vehicle at the forefront of delivering affordable access to global telecom and information technology infrastructure solutions for federal agencies.  These services not only deliver savings to the government and taxpayers, but also help to deliver solutions that transform government networks.

Fair opportunities can be as simple as a price comparison through the GSA EIS pricing tool.  But for agencies that make their own fair opportunity decisions and place their own task orders, there is limited amount of time to transition.  So the time is now for agencies to plan for transition and Fair Opportunities:
 

  1. Establish Integrated Program Team
    • Complete Delegation of Procurement Authority
    • Register for Access to GSA Tools
  2. Compile Inventory
  3. Deliver Agency Transition Plan
  4. Define Service Requirements
    • Define Service Groups
    • Document Service Requirements
  5. Develop Acquisition Strategy
    • Select Acquisition Method
    • Prepare Acquisition Plan
  6. Draft Task Order Solicitation
  7.
