What are the Advantages of Sole Source Contracting?

An accelerated procurement timeline, without disruptions and delays resulting from complex evaluations and potential protests.

Flexibility and reliability through direct negotiations (13 CFR 124.503) allows CWS to to truly understand customer mission goals and competitive threshold exemptions (48 CFR 19.805-1) allow for interrupted workflow.

Pre-award schedule risk is no longer an issue due to the non-protestable nature of ANC sole source procurements (13 CFR 124.517)

ANCs provide Federal customers with a virtually unlimited sole source ceiling for most service-based contract opportunities due to higher J&A than other small disadvantaged business groups (48 CFR 6.303-1)
