How to use the SPARC IDIQ
The use of SPARC is no different from using any other procurement vehicle. Business component
representatives (Contracting Officer’s Representative, Government Task Leads, Division
Directors) should reach out to their respective OAGM counterparts (Contracting Officer, Contract
Specialist) or their respective OPDIV contract shop to indicate a new effort or re-procurement
is being sought and they wish to use the SPARC IDIQ for that effort. All necessary procurement procedures and documents needed for any other procurement effort are the same for using SPARC (e.g., Sources Sought, Acquisition Plan, Statement of Work, and Independent Government Cost Estimate).
