Bundling/Consolidation Hotline

Use the form below to alert SBA of Federal agency bundling or consolidation practices that keep a small business from successfully competing for a contract.

Contract bundling, bundled requirement, bundled contract, or bundling means: the combining of two or more procurement requirements for goods or services previously provided or performed under separate smaller contracts into a solicitation of offers for a single contract or a Multiple Award Contract that is likely to be unsuitable for award to a small business concern (but may be suitable for award to a small business with a Small Business Teaming Arrangement) due to: 1) the diversity, size, or specialized nature of the elements of the performance specified; 2) the aggregate dollar value of the anticipated award; 3) the geographical dispersion of the contract performance sites; or 4) any combination of the factors described in SBA’s Regulations at 13 CFR 125.1(e).

Consolidation of contract requirements, consolidated contract, or consolidated requirement means: a solicitation for a single contract or a Multiple Award Contract to: 1) Satisfy two or more requirements of the Federal agency for goods or services that have been provided to or performed for the Federal agency under two or more separate contracts each of which was lower in cost than the total cost of the contract for which the offers are solicited, the total cost of which exceeds $2 million (including options); or 2) Satisfy requirements of the Federal agency for construction projects to be performed at two or more discrete sites.
