Guidance on Issuing GWAC Task Orders

Acquisitions should follow these basic steps:

  1. Plan the acquisition;
  2. Define requirements and develop the solicitation;
  3. Issue solicitations and offer fair opportunity (unless there is an exception);
  4. Evaluate proposals;
  5. Document award, debriefings, and protests; and,
  6. Administer and close out the order.

Your agency's internal process takes precedence

When using any interagency contract, your agency's internal ordering process takes precedence. If you are the issuing agency's ordering contracting officer, it is your responsibility to know of agency-specific policies for issuing orders on contract vehicles.

For Department of Defense (DoD) customers

For specific questions related to DoD’s authority to use interagency contracts, please contact the Defense Procurement Acquisition Policy (DPAP) at Michael.j.canales4.civ@mail.mil or (703) 695-8571.
