New rule opens the door to set aside orders for small businesses under multiple-award contracts such as the Federal Supply Schedules

04 November 2011

Government Contracts Alert

On 2 November 2011, the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Council published an interim rule that allows federal agencies to set aside task and delivery orders placed under a multiple-award contract (MAC), such a GSA Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) contract, for small businesses or any small business subcategory (i.e., women-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned, 8(a), HUBZone). In addition, for small businesses or any small business subcategory, agencies can now set aside parts of a MAC, or reserve awards under full and open multiple-award procurements. The new regulation took effect immediately, amending relevant provisions in the FAR to implement Section 1331 of the Small Business Jobs Act of 2010.
