§ 1204.403 General requirements.
(a) All proposed procurement transactions in excess of $25,000 shall be examined by a Small Business Specialist prior to issuance of bids or requests for proposals to determine suitability for small participation or set-asides, unless the transaction has already been set-aside for small business by the contracting officer.
(b) The appropriate office of the Small Business Administration (assigned PCR) shall be informed of proposed procurements estimated to exceed $25,000.
(c) A Bidder's list shall be maintained at each Field Installation on a current basis and reviewed to ensure that small business firms are given an equitable opportunity to participate in those procurements suitable for performance by such firms. Installations may use, at their option, the SBA Procurement Automated Source System (PASS) in lieu of the separate Center Bidder's list, if resources can be conserved.
(d) NASA Small Business Specialists shall acquire descriptive data, brochures, or other information concerning small business firms that appear competent to perform research and development (R&D) work in fields in which NASA is interested and furnish such information to appropriate NASA personnel for consideration of these firms in future R&D procurements. The Small Business Specialists at Headquarters and Field Installations shall assist and consult, as necessary, with NASA technical personnel in analyzing such information, arranging field inspection of facilities, making appointments for technical personnel with representatives of small business firms, and obtaining from other agencies appraisals of work performance by such firms. When feasible, Small Business Specialists shall conduct or participate in outreach conferences and training sessions to inform small businesses of contracting opportunities with the Agency.
(e) In accordance with Public Law 95-507, NASA will require contractors having contracts in excess of $1 million for the construction of any public facility, and in excess of $500,000 for all other contracts, and of such nature as to afford opportunities for subcontracting in substantial amounts, to establish and conduct small business subcontracting programs. Such programs will be periodically reviewed by NASA Small Business Specialists to evaluate their adequacy.
(f) NASA will encourage competent small business concerns to submit unsolicited proposals for research and development work in areas within NASA's responsibility, which may lead to contracts for such work. The formation of contractor pools or joint ventures to perform research and development work will also be encouraged.
(g) NASA Small Business Specialists will disseminate to small business concerns information concerning inventions for which NASA holds patents on behalf of the United States and under which it is NASA policy to grant licenses.
(h) Small business participation in NASA procurement shall be accurately measured, recorded, and publicized.
(i) NASA small business personnel shall assist small business concerns to obtain payments under their contracts, late payment interest penalties, or information due to such concerns.
