Contract ńˇýBundlingńˇŁ Under the Small Business Act: Existing Law and Proposed Amendments
Kate M. Manuel (au)
ńˇýBundlingńˇŁ refers to the consolidation of two or more requirements for goods or services previously provided or performed under separate smaller contracts into a solicitation for a single contract that is likely to be unsuitable for award to a small business because of its size or scope. Although bundling can potentially reduce costs or improve performance for federal agencies, it can also limit opportunities for small businesses to receive federal prime contracts. For this reason, Congress amended the Small Business Act in 1997 to require that procuring activities comply with certain procedures before issuing a bundled solicitation. Specifically, the 1997 amendments require that procuring activities (1) conduct market research to justify acquisition strategies that could lead to bundled contracts; (2) provide advance notice of bundled solicitations to the Small Business Admin. (SBA) and incumbent small business contractors; and (3) implement certain procurement strategies when solicitations involve ńˇýsubstantial bundling.ńˇŁ These steps are intended to ensure that any bundling is ńˇýnecessary and justified.ńˇŁ Only ńˇýunnecessary and unjustifiedńˇŁ bundling is prohibited under the 1997 and subsequent amendments.
