    (1) CHESS IDIQ Contract - If the requirement states a HP, XEROX, CANNON, SONY, SAMSUNG, or any manufacture's nomenclature is this a Brand Name J&A requirement? Is a Brand Name J&A required? (ie request for HP printers) (2) Under FAR Part 16.505 (b)(2) Exceptions....do any one of these exceptions apply that would negate the requirement for name brand J&A.


    Answer

    The requirement to justify a brand name purchase applies under the Army's CHESS (Computer Hardware, Enterprise Software and Solutions) program. Please see page one of the ordering guidelines at the Army's CHESS site.
