Request a Delegation of Procurement Authority

Follow before and after instructions to request an EIS DPA.

Request In-Scope Review

Submit a request for a scope review once the solicitation package is complete; GSA will not review drafts or partial solicitations. However, if you need informal review prior to this final submission, please see your specific Telecommunications Agency Manager.

A scope review is required for all EIS solicitations over $150k. If an agency is taking an exception to fair opportunity and doesn't issue a solicitation, then a scope review is not required. EIS Solicitations must be reviewed by GSA prior to the agency Ordering Contracting Office (OCO) releasing the solicitation to the EIS contractors. OCOs must also have received a Delegation of Procurement Authority from the GSA Contracting Officer prior to releasing the solicitation. GSA will determine if the solicitation requirements are within scope and issue a written scope determination finding to the agency. Findings will include marked up comments in the original submitted solicitation documents.
