Direct Award Guidelines

When a procuring activity contracting officer indicates his or her formal intent to award a procurement requirement, 13 CFR 124.502- 3 (c), as an 8(a) contract by submitting a written offering letter to SBA. The letter to SBA may be by electronic mail or by facsimile, as well as by mail or commercial delivery service.


An offering letter must contain the following information:


  1. A description of the work to be performed.
  2. The estimated period of performance.
