Is there a requirement for the Government to cancel a solicitation that was used to award a contract which was subsequently terminated?
This response is based on the information provided. We suggest you discuss with your contracting team, program manager and/or legal department as appropriate.
You do not need to cancel, we would argue you cannot cancel, the solicitation. It was put on the street generating a source selection process leading to contract award. The fact that you are terminating for default has no effect on the original solicitation.
