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.
