Is a DD2579 required for orders under existing IDIQs contracts? Is there a new rule or guidance that discusses this?

Open full Question Details
Whether a DD Form 2579 is required on each order under an IDIQ contract is based on your agency’s procedures. As stated in a previous Ask-A-Professor Question regarding the completion of DD Form 2579 on task orders, “Once the minimum quantity of the IDIQ is reached and the Government is no longer bound by the basic contract to order more from that particular supplier, the SDBU Office may want the option of suggesting other small business sources for the additional requirements.”
