The SUPER IT Task Orders | Lohfeld

in Blog by

In Fiscal-Year 2018, 20 Super Information Technology (IT) Tasks Orders with combined ceiling values of more than $4.4 billion, and spending to date of more than $4 billion will exceed their ultimate expiration date and become eligible for competition (see Exhibit 1). We define a Super IT Task Order as an individual task order awarded under the umbrella of an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) or Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC). We required that the IDIQ or GWAC contain a selected pool of contractors, who compete on request for task order proposals. We ensured all task orders had a distinct primary contract vehicle number and task order contract number.

The body of the student shot by an Ohio guardsman at Kent State University. Lyndon Johnson showing off his gall bladder surgery scar. Mohammed Ali jokingly punching the Beatles. You can buy framed copies of that one.
