    Is it permissible for the agency to issue a SOW against the BPA requiring an accuracy rate of 97% and three years coding experience provided all work remains in scope of the base agreement? If so, what is the FAR part 8 reference?


    Answer

    Your accuracy rate of 97% is more stringent than in the original blanket purchase agreement (95%). Thus, you have a scope problem. I would suggest that you perform market research and issue a solicitation for award of a new BPA.
    Once awarded you will be able to issue an order containing a new PWS containing the 97% accuracy requirement. I also suggest that you develop a Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan for this effort and seek maximum competition.
    As discussed, I have included the url for the "DoD Guidebook for the Acquisition of Services:
