Can a direct award be made to SDVOSB via GSA VETS SDVOSB based on proprietary or restricted rights? Does it require sources sought first?
The fair opportunity requirements of FAR 16.505(b)(1) apply to Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs), including the GSA VETS GWAC. However, from your scenario it appears the exception at FAR 16.505(b)(2)(i)(B) will provide the exception in your case and thus not mandate any "sources sought" notice.
