New rule expands requirement for certified cost or pricing data for DOD

This blog post from PilieroMazza has a good explanation of the proposed amendment to the FAR implementing section 822 of the FY2017 NDAA.

Essentially what is happening is for DOD, NASA, and the Coast Guard, the definition of “adequate price competition” is changing to eliminate situations where

  • only one proposal was received but there was an expectation two or more responsible offerors would submit competitive proposals, and
  • when price analysis demonstrates the proposed price is reasonable.

Therefore, when DOD, NASA, or the Coast Guard only receives one proposal from a responsible offeror, the contracting officer is required to request certified cost or pricing data. Note this does not apply to civilian agencies, and the new $2 million threshold for submitting this data applies (ie, it only need be submitted for contract awards or modifications worth more than $2M).
