We defined a Super IT Task Order as an individual task order awarded under the umbrella of an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) or Government-Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC).

We ensured all task orders had a distinct primary contract vehicle number and task order contract number. To find the Top 20 Super IT Task Orders, we looked for task orders with an ultimate expiration date of no later than September 30, 2018. We limited the list to task orders that had already spent 75% of their ceiling to help avoid … Continue reading The SUPER IT Task Orders
