Data resulting from the current ACT 2 contracts (FA8750-18-D-0001 through 0005) has also been reviewed and it was determined that a majority of the dollars spent or being spent under ACT 2 were executed by either the five SB primes or their SB subcontractors. The technical team performs ongoing market research by conducting one-on-one meetings with SB companies related to their capability of performing under ACT 2 and is continuously finding SB capable of performing the requirements under the contract. Further, FAR 52.219-14 (DEVIATION 2020-O0008) allows SB to meet their own performance requirements by subcontracting to other SBs. In order to receive from Industry the most novel and innovate approaches to solving user needs, it is anticipated that 4 to 6 Prime contractors are necessary under ACT 3.� Large Businesses are still encouraged to partner with SB.� ACTION CODE:� Amendment to a Previous Notice This action was originally published in the Beta SAM dated 16 June 2020.
