I am a Buyer. When do I need to use the “Intent to Bundle Requirements (DoD-Funded)” notice type?
The “Intent to Bundle Requirements (DoD-Funded)” notice type addresses requirements in Section 820 of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) instructing contracting officers post a notice of intent to use contract bundling procedures 30 days prior to releasing a solicitation or placing an order (if a solicitation is not required). This requirement applies to all federal agencies awarding actions funded solely with DoD funds. The requirement is captured in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) at subpart 205.205-70. The contracting officer must also provide a description of the benefits anticipated from bundling the requirements in the notice.
