Since this the requirement was accepted in the 8 (a) competitive program what alternative do I have if the offerors will not lower there price?
Can I seek relief from the SBA to have the project removed from the 8(a) program?
There is no award threshold for 8(a) competitive procurements. The only threshold is that you can sole source a procurement if the anticipated total value of the contract, including options will exceed $7 million for acquisitions assigned manufacturing NAICS codes and $4 million for all other acquisitions. See FAR 19.805. There appears to be no need to get your project removed from the 8(a) program.
