Is this award an ADA violation? If not, is there any regulation/documentation that supports giving the vendors prior notice?
No, it is not a violation of ADA. You awarded FY 16 money in FY16 (Sept 24, 2016). The money is being spent in FY17 - that's an expenditure and okay. The issue of needing 10 days prior to award, etc. has nothing to do with ADA.
