Bashpole Software, Inc. is a sole-source justified contractor with primary performance history with the Department of Defense through the Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program. Congress intends agencies and their Government-owned, contractor-operated facilities give preference to SBIR awardees, including sole source awards. Sole-source justification enables all departments and agencies to award sole-source contracts to Bashpole by way of the SBIR Phase III contract mechanism, thereby bypassing the usual requirement to put projects out to bid. This greatly reduces the paperwork and time the DOL would normally need to begin work on a project. Bashpole and the DOD contracting officers can provide agency with further information regarding FAR 6.302-5, 10 U.S.C. 2304(b)(2), 41 U.S.C. 253(b)(2), and how to proceed with the sole-source mechanism.
