571.102 Purpose.

GSA has developed this pilot program to be implemented outside the normal Federal Acquisition Regulations requirements to engage traditional and non-traditional Government contractors, including start-up companies. This program is intended to promote competition with a streamlined approach to address specific needs for innovative commercial products and commercial services. This program offers a range of advantages to start-up companies and others who may not have significant work experience with the U.S. Government, including—

      (a)  Streamlined solicitation requiring only minimal corporate and technical information;

      (b)  Fast track vendor selection timelines;

      (c)  Simplified contract administration procedures and requirements; and

      (d)  Preference for the vendor retaining core intellectual property, as appropriate.
