PGI 208.405-6 Limiting sources.

For an order or blanket purchase agreement (BPA) exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold that is a follow-on to an order or BPA for the same supply or services previously issued based on a limiting sources justification citing the authority at FAR 8.405-6(a)(1)(i)(B) or (C)—

(1) The limited sources justification shall include a copy of the previous justification to assist the approval authority in determining whether the planned actions to remove any barriers that led to the restricted consideration cited on the previous justification were completed; and

(2) The approval authority shall determine whether the planned actions were completed. If the actions were not completed, the justification for the follow-on action must be approved by the approval authority one-level above the approval authority for the previous justification (see FAR 8.405-6(d)). If the previous justification was approved by the Senior Procurement Executive (SPE), the approval remains at the SPE level.
