VAAR 819.7007 allows sole-source awards to service-disabled Veteran-owned small business concerns.


A contracting officer may award contracts to SDVOSB concerns on a sole source basis provided:


    1. The anticipated award price of the contract (including options) will not exceed $5 million;
    2. The requirement is synopsized in accordance with FAR part 5;
    3. The SDVOSB concern has been determined to be a responsible contractor with respect to performance; and
    4. The award can be made at a fair and reasonable price.


The contracting officer’s determination whether to make a sole source award is a business decision wholly within the discretion of the contracting officer. A determination that only one SDVOSB concern is available to meet the requirement is not required.


When conducting an SDVOSB sole source acquisition, the contracting officer shall ensure businesses are registered and verified as eligible in the VIP database prior to making an award.
