STEP 3: SPARC Requirements
There are several requirement documents needed to issue a RFQ under SPARC. They are as follows:
- Acquisition Plan (AP)
- Independent Government Cost Estimate (IGCE)
- Request for Funding (RFC) Memo
- Available Funding
Once the CO/CS has approved all necessary documents, the solicitation can be issued on SPARC.
For CMS orders, the requesting office CO or CS will prepare the HHS 653 (Small Business Review Form) and submit to the cognizant small business representative for approval if required by agency procedures.
Templates for the AP, SOW/SOO and IGCE can be found below.
