Follow usual publication procedures at 5.301, except that the following supersede the exceptions at 5.301(b)(2) through (7):
(a)
(1) Publicize the award notice for any action exceeding $500,000, funded in whole or in part by the Recovery Act, including—
(i) Contracts;
(ii) Modifications to existing contracts;
(iii) Orders which are issued under task or delivery order contracts; and
(iv) Modifications to orders under task or delivery order contracts.
(2) Contracting officers shall identify contract actions, funded in whole or in part by the Recovery Act, by using the following instructions which are also available in the Recovery FAQS under “Buyers/Engineers” at the Governmentwide Point of Entry (GPE) ( https://www.fedbizopps.gov ):
(i) If submitting notices electronically via ftp or email, enter the word “Recovery” as the first word in the title field.
(ii) If using the GPE directly, select the “yes” radio button for the “Is this a Recovery and Reinvestment Act action” field on the “Notice Details” form (Step 2) located below the “NAICS Code” field. In addition, enter the word “Recovery” as the first word in the title field.
(3) In preparing the description required by 5.207(a)(16), use clear and concise language to describe the planned procurement. Use descriptions of the goods and services (including construction), that can be understood by the general public. Avoid the use of acronyms or terminology that is not widely understood by the general public.
(b) Regardless of dollar value, if the contract action, including all modifications and orders under task or delivery order contracts, is not both fixed-price and competitively awarded, publicize the award notice and include in the description the rationale for using other than a fixed-priced and/or competitive approach. Include in the description a statement specifically noting if the contract action was not awarded competitively, or was not fixed-price, or was neither competitive nor fixed-price. These notices and the rationale will be available to the public at the GPE, so do not include any proprietary information or information that would compromise national security. The following table provides examples for when a rationale is required.
