If ‘To Team Or Not To Team’ Is The Question, Here’s The Answer…

GTTeam by golly!

Why? Consider this. Of the $443 billion in FY14 obligations reported to FPDS-NG:

  • Fifty-one percent were to single and multiple award Indefinite Delivery Vehicles (IDVs), and;
  • 60% of those dollars were the result of modifications to an established contract vehicle, delivery order or task order.

For the record, IDVs include:

  • Basic Ordering Agreements;
  • Blanket Purchase Agreements;
  • Federal Supply Schedules (GSA and VA);
  • Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts, and;
  • Indefinite Delivery Contracts which include IDIQs and MACs.

So. while I am the ‘Guy’ who points out how much Uncle Sam spends on non-IDV contracts that account for 49% of FY14 obligations reported to FPDS-NG, only $56 billion (of $220 billion) in non-IDV obligations are not the result of modifications.

It pays to have a plan and value proposition for teaming and we’ll be discussing these in upcoming editions of GovConChat™ and more.
