How to Use the Small Business Fair Opportunity Exception to Access DIG Services 

The Small Business Fair Opportunity Exception allows USAID Missions to directly place task orders with small-business prime contractors without limit to the dollar amount that USAID can award.  At the discretion of the Task Order Contracting Officer (TOCO), Missions can place task orders with DIG’s Consortia without further competition. The process for utilizing the small business exception is as follows: 

1.          The Task Order Contracting Officer’s Representative (TOCOR) submits the scope of work to the IDIQ Contracting Officer Representative (COR) for review to determine compatibility with the IDIQ scope of work;

2.         The IDIQ COR provides the corporate capability information of the small business primes to the TOCOR; and

3.         The TOCOR reviews the corporate capability information and provides a brief, written recommendation to the TOCO on which small business he/she/they recommend(s) for award or whether to issue a Request for Task Order Proposal among all small business holders of the IDIQ.

For further details on the direct placement of task orders and use of the Small Business Fair Opportunity Exception, please refer to ADS Chapter 302.
