“Contracting officials at Specialty Center Acquisition, NAVFAC (SCAN) generally provided contractors a fair opportunity to compete for task orders awarded under MACs (multiple award contracts (MACs). However, contracting officials limited competition for two task orders by not sending the solicitation or amended solicitation to all contractors under the MAC because they believed that they had the authority to exclude contractors from receiving the solicitation. In addition, contracting officials did not adequately determine price reasonableness on six task orders awarded having only one proposal, valued at $45.6 million, and on nine modifications with prices increases, valued at $3.8 million, because they relied on unsupported independent Government cost estimates (IGCE) to make their determinations. As a result, NAVFAC did not have assurance that the services acquired resulted in a fair and reasonable price for DoD.”
