DOD, GSA, and NASA issue proposed rule regarding debriefing unsuccessful offerors under competitive proposals. (Regulations).
The DOD, GSA, and NASA have issued a proposed rule to amend the FAR to implement sections of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act (FASA) with regard to the debriefing of unsuccessful offerors under competitive proposals. The proposed rule would amend FAR [section] 52.212-1 (Instruction to Offerors--Commercial Items) and [section] 52.215-1 (Instruction to Offerors--Competitive Acquisitions) to list all the information to be disclosed in post-award debriefings as required by FASA. The list of information included in the amendment is the same for both FAR sections and includes: (1) the agency's evaluation of significant weak or deficient factors in the debriefed offeror's offer; (2) the overall cost or price and technical rating of the successful offeror and the debriefed offeror and past performance information on the debriefed offeror; (3) the overall ranking of all offerors, if such a ranking was developed; (4) a summary of the rationale for the award; (5) the make and model of the item to be delivered by the successful offeror under a contract for a commercial item; and (6) reasonable responses to relevant questions posed by the debriefed offeror concerning the procedures followed in the solicitation. Written comments are due by April 7, 2003 (68 Fed. Reg. 5777, 02/04/03).
