CIO-SP3 Small Business contract holders have gone through a comprehensive review process that includes evaluations of their technical capabilities, past performance, price and cost. This enables Contracting Officers to use simplified evaluations at the task order level, resulting in significant savings in time, money and resources. The benefits of using the CIO-SP3 contract are summarized below.

  • Faster: Streamlined ordering and procedures under FAR Subpart 16.505 save time, money and resources. Synopsizing or posting on FedBizOpps is not required.
  • Easier: Secure, web-based electronic-Government Ordering System (e-GOS) automates task order competition, management, awardee selection and notification. No special Delegation of Procurement Authority is required by NITAAC.
  • Cost Competitive: Best available ceiling rates negotiated at master contract level; task order competition drives rates even lower.
  • Control: Task orders are placed directly by agency with end-to-end management by the procuring Contracting Officer. Customized terms, conditions and additional labor categories are easily added.
  • Contracts: Agile and flexible in support of all contract types, modular contracting and CONUS/OCONUS procurements.
  • Customer Service: NITAAC provides a response to any contractual, technical or procedural question within one hour. NITAAC offers free SOW/SOO assessments on every order returned within one day. NITAAC provides free on-site training to potential Government customers.
