Creating Compliant Non-Competitive Source Justifications
The decision to do business with a subcontractor on a non-competitive basis can be both strategic and tactical. Oftentimes, that decision is made during the acquisition planning phase without input from the Procurement or Subcontracting function. Since these type of transactions heavily impact procurement compliance, they are closely scrutinized by our Government customers. So how can we improve compliance associated with the development of non-competitive source justification as well as improve the credibility of their supporting documentation? The purpose of this webinar is to discuss the core elements associated with adequately documenting non-competitive procurement transactions, from a source selection standpoint, under Government contracts. The session will explore the process that DCMA's Analysts use to review non-competitive source justifications and associated documentation, and to examine common issues they observe during CPSR's. J.A. White & Associates Inc. will provide both a strategic overview as well as a tactical discussion of the topic. Topics will include:  Why do we Create Non-Competitive Source Justifications?  What is DCMA's review guidelines regarding Non-Competitive Source Justification?  Market Research and its role in Non-Competitive Justifications.  Key Non-Competitive Source Justification Compliance Elements.
