Consolidation Requirements Per FAR 7.107-3 , DFARS 207.170-3(a) with DoD Class Deviation 2013-O0021 , agencies shall not consolidate contract requirements with an estimated total value exceeding $2 million unless the acquisition strategy includes the results of market research; identification of any alternative contracting approaches that would involve a lesser degree of consolidation; and a determination by the senior procurement executive that the consolidation is necessary and justified. For the consolidation to be necessary and justified, an analysis must be conducted to demonstrate that the advantages of the proposed consolidation “substantially exceed” those of each alternative strategy. Your local Small Business Professional (SBP) and the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Procurement Center Representative (PCR) should be involved in helping to maximize small business utilization in the acquisition. The Component and agency OSBP directors must review and coordinate on justifications for bundling and consolidation (DoDI 4205.01, DoD Small Business Programs , Enclosure 2, paragraph 2(i)(2)) when acquisitions will be reviewed at those levels.
