    Does the IDIQ's primary NAICS code determine the size standard for the entire IDIQ or is it determined at the order level? What is the regulatory guidance that provides the answer to this question?


    Answer

    The IDIQ's primary NAICS code applies to the principle nature of the acquisition and it determines the size standard for the entire IDIQ contract and subsequent orders. The NAICS code is not re-determined at the order level. FAR Part 19.501(f) requires all solicitations involving set-asides to specify the applicable small business size standard and NAICS code. FAR Part 19.804-6(a) states that separate offers and acceptances must not be made for individual orders under multiple award, Federal Supply Schedule (FSS), multi-agency contracts or Government wide acquisition contracts.
