What are the types of source selection methodology outlined in FAR 15? Do you have to use the FAR source selection methodology in FAR 13 acquisitions?
Open full Question Details
The various source selection methodologies are covered in great detail in FAR subpart 15.1. It is too much to explain here so I recommend reviewing subpart 15.1. The applicability of FAR Part 13 procedures is best understood by reviewing FAR 13.003. You will find that selecting sources for simplified acquisitions is "simplified" when compared to FAR part 15 acquisitions. Again, reading the FAR is necessary to understand the procedures and implications.
