Competition Requirements for Purchase of Services Under Multiple Award Contracts (DFARS Case 2001-D017)

DoD has developed training tools on the procedures in this rule and will provide training in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.  DoD and civilian agency personnel that place, or develop requirements for, orders under multiple award contracts using DoD funds, and companies that sell services through multiple award contracts, should seek training on these procedures.  Please visit the Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy Home Page, "Interest Items" drop-down box, for Section 803 training materials and lists of training opportunities at http://www.acq.osd.mil/dpap.
