    Can you award a labor hour contract for commercial services to an 8a contractor without competing?


    Answer

    FAR 12.102(c) states that when a policy in another FAR part (FAR Part 19 in this case) is inconsistent with a policy in FAR Part 12, the commercial item policy takes precedence. While a sole source award to an 8(a) concern may otherwise have been appropriate, none of the three conditions listed under FAR 12.207(b)(1)(i) authorize the use of a sole-source award...to an 8(a) firm or to any other firm.
