Project Description


This two-day course will provide an overview of the Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract vehicle and its role in Federal contracting. Participants will explore both Agency specific IDIQs awarded for the provision of goods and services, as well as the concept of strategic sourcing via GWACs and MACs utilizing IDIQs awarded by other Agencies such as GSA, HHS, and NASA but open for all Federal agencies.
