Master Contract Program - 902TS: Work Order Transition Plan

In March/April 2014 the new master program will be up and running.  All existing as well as new contractors will need to apply to the new program and the listed work categories. Participation in the existing 902TS program does not automatically enroll a contractor into the new program. If a contractor does not apply to the new program, their agreements expire on 6/30/2014 as covered below.
 
Group 1 – All existing work orders currently set to expire 6/30/2014:

  • If the work will be completed and existing work order does not need to be extended beyond 6/30/2014, then nothing additional needs to be done since the current 902TS master contract program runs to this date.
  • If the work will not be completed and the existing work order needs to be extended to a new date beyond 6/30/2014, then the existing work order will be rolled over to the new program and subject to its terms and conditions once it is established. A new work order will be issued under the new program and will not require a solicitation for this “program switch” transaction since a valid procurement was already done when the original work order was entered into.

(NOTE) This assumes that the contractor who has the current work order will apply and be accepted into the new program. In the event the contractor with a current work order does not apply or get accepted into the new program, MMD and MN.IT will work with the contracting agency to chart a course for these situations on an individual basis.  Options include re-soliciting the work or, if continuity requires, approve a single source to continue the work.

Group 2 – New projects/work for which a work order needs to be issued between now and the time the new program is up and running:

  • If the work will be completed prior to 6/30/2014, then continue with the current 902TS program as in the past.
  • If the work needs to go beyond the 6/30/2014 date, the work order can be written under the current 902TS program for up to one year from the date of issuance. When the new master contract is up and running, these work orders will be moved over to the new program if the vendor with whom the work order is written is on the new program. A solicitation is not required for this “program switch” transaction since a valid procurement was already done when the original work order was entered into. Work orders moved to the new program will be subject to the terms and conditions of the new program. Special language has been developed and added to the Statement of Work (SOW) form to provide notice of and to reflect the above requirement. See your P/T Coordinator for more information.

(NOTE) This assumes that the contractor who has the current work order will apply and be accepted into the new program. In the event the contractor with a current work order does not apply or get accepted into the new program, MMD and MN.IT will work with the contracting agency to chart a course for these situations on an individual basis.  Options include re-soliciting the work or, if continuity requires, approve a single source to continue the work.
