PART 1807

ACQUISITION PLANNING

Subpart 1807.1—Acquisition Plans

1807.103 Agency-head responsibilities.

1807.104 General procedures.

1807.105 Contents of written acquisition plans.
Acquisition plans shall address each applicable topic listed in FAR 7.105, as supplemented by this section. Plans shall be structured by subject heading using each italicized topic heading in the same sequence as presented in the FAR. Procurement strategy meetings (PSMs) held at Headquarters shall follow the FAR and NFS. Additional guidance for Headquarters PSMs is in the Guide for Successful Headquarters Procurement Strategy Meetings available at: http://prod.nais.nasa.gov/portals/pl/documents/PSMs.html . Subheadings should be used when appropriate (e.g., the separate items under acquisition considerations at 7.105(b)(5)). Topics not applicable to a given acquisition (e.g., design-to-cost and should-cost are not compatible with service acquisitions), should be marked N/A. The requirements in FAR 7.105 regarding the strategies for implementing performance-based acquisition methods shall be described, to include the specific performance standards, results, and financial incentives.

1807.107 Additional requirements for acquisitions involving bundling.

1807.107-70 Orders against Federal Supply Schedule contracts or other indefinite-delivery contracts awarded by another agency.
The FAR and NFS requirements for justification, review, and approval of bundling of contract requirements also apply to an order from a Federal Supply Schedule contract or other indefinite-delivery contract awarded by another agency if the requirements consolidated under the order meet the definition of "bundling" at FAR 2.101.

Subpart 1807.70-- Enterprise License Management Team (ELMT) Program

1807.7000 Policy.
Requiring Offices, Contracting officers and Governmentwide commercial purchase cardholders shall make use of the ELMT Program which establishes enterprise software license agreements that allow NASA to obtain favorable terms and pricing for commercial software and aligns with NASA’s Strategic Sourcing Goals. The NSSC’s ELMT Program Office is available to procure new software licenses or software maintenance contracts not currently in the ELMT portfolio. Allowing the ELMT Program the opportunity to process individual orders provides insight into Center requirements that will assist the ELMT in identifying future consolidation opportunities for the Agency.

1807.7001 Purchase request.
The Requiring Office shall coordinate with the Center CIO and the ELMT Program Office on the acquisition of any software licenses or software maintenance prior to submitting a purchase request to a Contracting Officer or governmentwide commercial purchase cardholder to make such purchase. The requiring or requesting official shall review the information at the ELMT website to determine if the required commercial software or related services are available. A listing of the ELMT enterprise license agreements, consolidated agency contracts and other products or services of ELMT can be found at: https://www.nssc.nasa.gov/elmt/. Use of the ELMT should be considered during acquisition planning when acquiring software licenses or software maintenance under new or existing contracts, task or delivery orders, or when contemplating a purchase using a governmentwide purchase card or when exercising options under existing contracts that provide software or software maintenance. Prior to sending a purchase request to the Contracting Officer, the requiring office and the Center CIO or IT Asset Manager shall coordinate with the ELMT Program Office to determine whether existing or planned ELMT software agreements can fulfill a software requirement 30 days prior to entering into a new contract, exercising an option, consenting to a subcontract, issuing a task or delivery order, or making a purchase using a governmentwide purchase card. The ELMT is available to assist in preparing requirements and supporting documentation and in obtaining appropriate approvals.

1807.7002 File documentation.

An information copy of the justification shall be provided to the ELMT program at NSSCELMT@mail.nasa.gov 30 days prior to award.

1807.7003 Advance agency planning.
Program Requirements Offices, Procurement Officers and Chief Information Officers should jointly consider submitting a comprehensive portfolio request to the ELMT for any software not currently being procured via the ELMT for future business case consideration. Centers should identify a point of contact to interface with the ELMT regarding the portfolio request.

Subpart 1807.71—Master Buy Plan

1807.7100 Policy.
The Master Buy Plan (MBP) provides information on planned acquisitions to enable management to focus its attention on a representative selection of high-dollar-value and otherwise sensitive acquisitions. Master Buy Plan submissions are tracked and managed through an Internet-based tool known as the Master Buy Plan Database (MBPD) (https://smith.hq.nasa.gov/mbpbpr/login/). MBPD data is used to support other Agency planning activities, including the monthly Baseline Performance Review (BPR).
