Using NITACC – CIO-SP3
CIO-SP3 contract holders went through a rigorous source selection process prior to award, which includes dimensions such as technical capabilities, past performance, price and cost. This enables Contracting Officers (CO’s) to use simplified evaluations at the task order level, resulting in significant savings in time, money and resources.
Ceiling rates were negotiated at the Master Contract level to be the best available. When your agency places a task order, you are already starting with the most cost competitive rates, and competition will drive them even lower.
NITAAC’s online system (e-GOS) streamlines the acquisition process even further with automatic distribution, built-in FAR guidance, and more.
NITAAC offers the following program benefits to all customers:
- Easy-to-use, secure web-based e-GOS ordering system for automated task order competition, management, awardee selection and notification
- No special “Delegation of Procurement Authority” is required by NITAAC
- Customer Support Center provides one-hour response to any contractual, technical or procedural question
- One-day turnaround on free, comprehensive SOW/SOO assessment for every task order assures quality responses
- Free training on GWACs, FAR 16, NITAAC contracts, and NITAAC online ordering systems; certification for 2 CLPs awarded
NIH is required to collect an NIH Contract Access Fee (NCAF) from its customers to reimburse the cost of operating and administering the CIO-SP3 contract. Effective January 5, 2016 the fee is fixed at .55% (i.e., 0.0055) for any new task orders released under the contract and applied to the total award value for contractor performance. Total award value is all-inclusive: labor, fees (including award fees and incentive pools), and ODCs (including travel). The formula is: Total NCAF = Total Award Value * NCAF Percentage. The NITAAC Program Office has instituted a cap of $150,000 for any task order base or optional period (not to exceed 12 months) with funding in excess of $27 million under the CIO-SP3 Small Business and 8(a) contracts.
