805.205 Special situations.
(a) A contracting officer may procure paid advertising in a daily newspaper circulated in the local area to publicize a proposed procurement of architectural and engineering (A/E) services not expected to exceed $10,000. See FAR 5.101(b)(4)(i) and 5.502(a).
(b) A contracting officer may procure paid advertising in a daily newspaper circulated in the local area or in professional journals to publicize a proposed procurement of professional services (e.g., scarce medical specialist services, health-care resources, advisory and assistance services). See FAR 5.101(b)(4)(i) and 5.502(a).
805.207 Preparation and transmittal of synopses.
(a) When an A/E evaluation board is ready to advertise for A/E services, the board must establish the geographic area within which it will consider A/E firms (including joint ventures).
(b) The geographic area must be large enough to assure selection of three to five firms highly qualified for the particular project involved, but not so large as to make the evaluation process unduly burdensome.
