If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)

This is Part 2 of our mini-series on the “Fair Opportunity” process. Kevin and Paul discuss the ordering process for task orders and delivery orders under Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts. FAR 16.505(a) lays out the rules which are incorporated into your contract via 52.216-18 & -19.

Learn how the ordering process can streamline government procurement and why some multiple award IDIQ contracts are no more efficient than a full FAR Part 15 competition.

Kevin Jans and Paul Schauer created the Contracting Officer Podcast to help Government and Industry acquisition professionals understand more about how the other side thinks. Admittedly, the podcast’s name sounds very limiting. It is not just for contracting officers or even just for those in the contracting profession. Anyone with an interest in the Federal acquisition world can benefit from the insight and down-to-earth explanations of complicated topics provided by the hosts.
