In accordance with FAR 7.107-5 and GSAM 507.107-5, GSA is providing public notification of the rationale for consolidating or bundling the following requirements. Per GSAM 507.107-5(a)(1), notifications will be posted within 7 days of approval of the written determination.

The following table will be updated as written determinations are approved.  

FY 2017 Approved Determinations
Title Date Type
Building Operations and Maintenance for Caribbean Field Office 11/23/2016 Consolidation
The General Services Administration (GSA), Public Buildings Service (PBS), Northeast and Caribbean Region (i.e. R2), analyzed the benefits of consolidating four (4) existing small business 8(a) (i.e. 8(a) Business Development (DB) Program) set-aside contracts into one (1) singular small business 8(a) set-aside contract for Building Operations and Maintenance (O&M) within the Caribbean Field Office. Consolidation of the four (4) separate existing Building O&M contracts is necessary and justified as it will result in substantial benefits and an estimated savings of 30%. The substantial benefits exceed the statutory requirement (per 15 USC § 657q) of 10% of the estimated contract value for contracts below $94M. In addition to the significant cost savings, the contract will be easier to manage, will eliminate waste, and will provide more efficiency in Procurement Acquisition Lead Times (PALT) and contract administration.
EPA ITS III - Task Order 2, Infrastructure & Hosting Support 11/20/2016 Consolidation
The General Services Administration (GSA), Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) analyzed the benefits of consolidating five separate orders/contracts into one order for Infrastructure and Application Hosting Support in support of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). GSA found the consolidation necessary and justified. Consolidation of the requirements will result in substantial cost savings benefits estimated at 15.7 percent. The benefits exceed the requirement per FAR 7.107-2(d)(2) of five percent of the estimated contract value when the value exceeds $94 million. In addition to the significant quantified cost savings, the contract will benefit from increased efficiency, reduced redundancy, better communication, and increased accountability. The cost savings and efficiency benefits that will be realized as a result of this consolidated order outweigh the negative impacts to small business.
EPA ITS III - Task Order 1, End User Support 10/28/2016 Consolidation
The General Services Administration (GSA), Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM) analyzed the benefits of consolidating five separate orders/contracts into one order for End User Services in support of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). GSA found the consolidation necessary and justified. Consolidation of the requirements will result in substantial cost savings benefits estimated at 20.1 percent. The benefits exceed the requirement per FAR 7.107-2(d)(2) of 5 percent of the estimated contract value, if the value exceeds $94 million. In addition to the significant quantified cost savings, the contract will benefit from increased efficiency, reduced redundancy, better communication, and increased accountability. The cost savings and efficiency benefits that will be realized as a result of this consolidated order outweigh the negative impacts to small business.
New Southern IL & IN General Construction IDIQ 10/13/2016 Consolidation
The General Services Administration (GSA), Public Buildings Service, Great Lakes Region, analyzed the benefits of consolidating an indefinite number of separate orders/contracts into one Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract for repairs and alterations services in Southern Illinois and Indiana. GSA has found the consolidation necessary and justified. Consolidation of the requirements will result in substantial benefits estimated at 21.57%. IDIQ contracting is authorized by FAR 16.504. The benefits of the IDIQ contracts exceed the requirement per FAR 7.107-2(d) of 10% of the estimated contract value, for contracts below $94 million. In addition to the significant quantified cost savings, the contract will benefit from expediting the ordering process, reducing procurement lead times, simplifying the ordering process, and facilitating the process of obtaining security clearances for pre-qualified contractors for long-range resource planning. This contract will be set-aside for small businesses.
