SEWP DOWO’s

SEWP can be utilized for Centralized and De-Centralized (Catalog) Delivery Orders with Options (DOWOs) and along with the Fair Opportunity procedures in FAR Part 16.505(b), some of the functionality related to Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) can be applied to the SEWP process.

This functionality is as follows:
If an Agency has a requirement to purchase a set of known in-scope items and products but is uncertain of the timing of those purchases, a Request for Quote (RFQ) can be submitted using Fair Opportunity guidelines to one or more SEWP Contract Groups; The Agency may award one or more Delivery Orders based on the quotes received. This initial set-up Delivery Order would set the price of the items as quoted. The maximum time for the existence of this order and any instructions for exercising options / placing option calls against the original quote and initial Delivery Order should be noted in this initial order.

Agency officials may then follow the procedures as stated in the set-up Delivery Order to place orders against the initial quote. This is per the FAR Part 16 exception to Fair Opportunity for logical follow-ons to a Delivery Order, which was itself awarded based on Fair Opportunity.Any substantive change to the initial quote and subsequent initial Delivery Order, such as increasing the scope of products quoted, would require a renewed Quoting and ordering cycle including issuing a new RFQ following Fair Opportunity procedures.

Types of DOWOs
  1. Centralized
    1. After the Contracting Officer solicits for the DOWO via the SEWP Quote Request Tool (QRT) and chooses an awardee, the CO would be responsible for making all purchases via funded modifications to the base award for all offices under that department.
  2. De-centralized (Catalog)
    1. After the Contracting Officer solicits for the DOWO via the SEWP QRT and chooses an awardee (e.g. Emergent), they work with the SEWP program office to set up a catalog via the SEWP tool. Once the catalog is set up, all authorized offices in the department will be able to go into the tool and place orders.


Eligible Customers

All federal agencies and authorized contractors can place orders through this GWAC.

Fair Opportunity

FAR 16.505(b) (1) provides that each contractor shall be given fair opportunity to be considered for each order exceeding $10,000 and issued under multiple award contracts. The FAR states that the method to obtain fair opportunity is at the discretion of the CO and that the CO must document the rationale for placement and price of each order.

Fair Opportunity When Using SEWP Contracts

The SEWP Quote Request Tool is the recommended method to assist in this activity and to augment the required decision documentation. The SEWP QRT Tool will automatically include the Contract Holders within a selected Group or based on a suggested source.

Note:  Fair Opportunity to all Contract Holders within one or more SEWP Groups is required. There is no requirement to obtain 3 quotes as long as all Contract Holders within a Group were provided opportunity to provide a quote.
