    Is it still possible to post an amendment to the solicitation on FBO for the heaters spec with an extension to give existing offerors or new potential contractors more time to respond? My question is whether we can legally do this since the solicitation did close already or if I have to cancel the solicitation all together and repost/start over. This is for commercial items under the SAT. Thank you.


    Answer

    FAR 15.206(c) permits the contracting officer to issue an amendment to offerors still under consideration after the closing date. However, if the "crucial spec" adds "substantial" value to the potential award (see FAR 15.206(e)), then the solicitation must be cancelled and a new one issued with the new spec.
