(Last Modified:27-Sep-2018)


This continuous learning module addresses three commonly used acquisition methods: issuing task or delivery orders using GSA’s Multiple Award Schedules (MAS) under FAR Subpart 8.4 and negotiating a stand-alone order or contract under FAR Part 13 and FAR Part 15. The module explores the differences and similarities of these three methods, their advantages and disadvantages in various situations, and how to analyze alternatives as you develop your acquisition strategy. This CLM also explains how to utilize FAR Part 13 in conjunction with FAR Part 8.4 when open market items are needed to complete your overall requirement.
