Agencies must justify large contracts to 8(a) firms

The FAR Councils are adding a new set of controls to contracts worth more than $20 million going to vendors in the socioeconomic program. This interim rule is in reaction to problems that surfaced last year when 8(a) firms were passing most of the work under the award to large businesses. Agencies also have new requirements to determine the order of priority for small business programs, around multiple-award contracts and when to use other than firm-fixed price contracts.
