    If one of the similar requirements previously awarded has changed more than 25% in this case is almost 50%, thus is considered to be a new requirement. Does this still constitutes a consolidation? if yes, its there any hidden reference can support this statement? In advance, thank you for your assistance.


    Answer

    As you state the Benefit Analysis Guidebook from 2007, it states, "any consolidation that includes the combination of two or more previous requirements may be a consolidation regardless of whether or not it includes new work, i.e., work that has never been perfromed under contract.  

    Part of your changed requirement was performed under a previous contract.  Notice that it says "may" in the guidebook.   This would have to be a determination in consultation with your legal counse, Small Business Professional, and SBA PCR.  https://business.defense.gov/Portals/57/Documents/Bundling%20Guidance.pdf?ver=2017-12-08-131415-820
