Key Procurement Policy Updates/Reminders Recent NFS Changes 1817.204 5 Year Limitation The 5-year period of performance limitation does not apply to the following circumstances: For those acquisitions where it is justified to procure Phases A through D or A through F and the period of performance is expected to exceed 5 years, a deviation is not required if the period of performance is approved as part of the original acquisition plan and the work included in the scope of the contract.

Phase-in periods of up to 90 days. Phase-in periods may be in addition to the 5-year period of performance limitation. Periods of up to 6 months beyond the 5-year period of performance limitation when permitted by FAR Clause 52.217-8, Option to Extend Services, for unplanned, unforeseen circumstances or events that are beyond the control of the contracting officer. (Note: PIC 00-22 has been archived) 1832.9 Submission of Vouchers Clause For Cost-Reimbursement-type or Time-and-Materials-type solicitations or existing contracts, replace GSFC 52.216-103 and/or 1852.216-87, with the new NFS 1852.232-80. Several FAR and NFS clauses/provisions which were previously allowed to be incorporated by reference are now required to be in full text. Clause Finder has been updated to reflect these changes.

Key Procurement Policy Updates/Reminders Review Process for RFPs/RFQs In addition to posting the Draft RFP documents in PDF, please be sure to save all Microsoft Word versions of key documents for use in the Final RFP review. Example of typical key documents in Microsoft Word include the main Draft RFP document (Sections B-M), SOW, Past Performance Questionnaire, RTOs, etc. Once the Draft RFP is posted via PDF documents, use the track changes function in these Microsoft Word documents to demonstrate any changes that occur between the Draft RFP posting and final RFP review. These track changes electronic documents, in addition to the final clean versions, shall be provided to reviewers via PKI e-mail during the Final RFP

review process to facilitate an efficient review. Key Procurement Policy Updates/Reminders Reporting Action The service contract reporting period (Oct 1 Sep 30) for FY16 just ended, and Contractors are now required to submit their reportable data into the SAM (www.sam.gov) by no later than October 31, 2016 (see FAR 4.1705 and clauses 52.20414 and 52.204-15, as applicable).
