17.000 Definitions.

Bridge Contract is a short-term sole-source contract awarded generally to the incumbent contractor to continue critical services when a follow-on competitive contract action could not be completed in a timely manner. It provides needed services until the program and contracting offices can establish a new competitive contract. The SPE Bridge Decision Briefing, located in DARS PGI 17.000, is not required for non-DISA contract actions nor is it required for bridge contracts made necessary by GAO or Agency-level protests. Although a bridge may not require a decision brief, it still must be added onto the Bridge Report .
