SIGNIFICANT CHANGES WITH THIS REFRESH: The General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) is planning to refresh all GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) solicitations to add and update clauses and provisions related to implementation of GSAR Case 2016-G506 (OLM Technical Amendment) and FAR Case 2018-010 Use of Products and Services of Kaspersky Lab. IMPACTS: GSAR Case 2016-G506 (OLM Technical Amendment) On August 16, 2018, GSA issued a technical amendment to the General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR) clarifying the text regarding the application of the 33.33% limitation for order-level materials (OLMs). Specifically, the technical amendment revises the language in clause 552.238-82 to clarify that for a Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA), the 33.33% limitation applies to the cumulative value of OLMs across all BPA orders. There are no significant content changes resulting from this technical amendment. As a result, all GSA Schedule solicitations will be updated as follows: The following will be ADDED/UPDATED : 552.238-82 Special Ordering Procedures for the Acquisition of Order-Level Materials (JAN 2018) SCP-FSS-007 Special Proposal Instructions for Order-Level Materials Special Item Number (NOV 2018) (full text provided at the end of this document) Description for Order-Level Materials SIN (full text provided at end of this document) NOTE: The Order-Level Materials SIN description is included ONLY in OLM-authorized Schedule solicitations. Only contractors awarded the Order-Level Materials SIN can offer OLMs. A listing of these Schedules is maintained at https://www.gsa.gov/olm FAR Case 2018-010 Use of Products and Services of Kaspersky Lab On July 16, 2018, DoD, GSA and NASA issued an interim rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to implement section 1634 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018. The interim rule adds FAR subpart 4.20 and a corresponding new contract clause at 52.204-23 Prohibition on Contracting for Hardware, Software, and Services Developed or Provided by Kaspersky Lab or Other Covered Entities. The clause prohibits contractors from providing any hardware, software, or services developed or provided by Kaspersky Lab (i.e., covered articles) or its related entities (i.e., covered entities), or using any covered articles in the development of data or deliverables first produced in the performance of the contract after October 1, 2018. The clause also requires contractors to report any covered articles discovered during contract performance; this requirement flows down to subcontractors. The purpose of the prohibition is to mitigate the risk that the Russian government could threaten U.S. national security by capitalizing on access provided by Kaspersky products to compromise federal information and information systems. As a result, all GSA Schedule solicitations will be updated as follows: The following clause will be ADDED : 52.204-23 Prohibition on Contracting for Hardware, Software, and Service Developed or Provided by Kaspersky Lab and Other Covered Entities (Jul 2018) The following clauses will be UPDATED : 52.212-5 Contract Terms and Conditions Required to Implement Statutes or Executive Orders - Commercial Items (Nov 2017) (Alternate II - Nov 2017. Notice: The GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) program has recently experienced a tremendous increase in new offers. Due to the large number of new offers currently in process, it could take up to 12 months before your offer is evaluated. GSAs practice is to evaluate offers in the order in which they are received. However, GSA may give priority to processing certain offers when circumstances dictate, such as when a federal agency Contracting Officer specifically requests an expedited offer review in order to meet a pending requirement that will be procured under the MAS program, or when there a need for GSA to bring strategically critical new products or services to market in order to meet federal customer needs. The solicitation will remain in effect until it is replaced by a refreshed solicitation. The Federal Supply Schedule period is continuous; contract periods commence on the date of award (DOA) and expire five years from the DOA unless further extended pursuant to option clause, Option to Extend the Term of the Contract (Evergreen), which allows the Government to extend the contract three additional five-year periods, not to exceed a total of twenty years. All contracts will be indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contracts with a $2500 guaranteed minimum for the contract period. All contracts to be awarded include Industrial Funding provisions. The Trade Agreements Act applies to this solicitation. Small Business Set-Aside provisions will be addressed in the individual product/services attachments to the solicitation. Paper offers will no longer be accepted for this schedule. The section at the beginning of the Vendor Response Document providing instructions for submitting a paper offer should be disregarded; Schedule 56 is a mandatory eOffer schedule.
