    Nope, just read the whole article that Chad quoted but he left out an important part about a contract being renewed so it was not a no bid contract that was awarded as stated when he started this thread as Fox entertainment continues it's unfair and unbalanced reports.

    Joseph A. Fredericks, director of public information at USAID, told Fox News the Checchi deal was actually a renewal of an existing contract, awarded in 2004 by the Bush administration after a competitive bid process. "As the incumbent," Fredericks wrote in an e-mail Monday, "Checchi was rewarded a renewed contract to allow for work on the ground to continue."
    And the tooth fairy came to see me last night. From the Fox report: "A synopsis of the contract published on the USAID Web site says Checchi & Company will "train the next generation of legal professionals" throughout the Afghan provinces and thereby "develop the capacity of Afghanistan's justice system to be accessible, reliable, and fair."

    The legality of the arrangement as a "sole source," or no-bid, contract was made possible by virtue of a waiver signed by the USAID administrator. "They cancelled the open bid on this when they came to power earlier this year," a source familiar with the federal contracting process told Fox News.

    "That's kind of weird," said another source, who has worked on "rule of law" issues in both Afghanistan and Iraq, about the no-bid contract to Checchi & Company. 'There's lots of companies and non-governmental organizations that do this sort of work.'"

    There are several red flags here. A key component to qualify for sole source is that there is not another available source to perform the work or provide the product. That doesn't appear to be the case.

    The "existing contract" reason won't fly either. The fact that they "cancelled an open bid" tells you that the existing contract was expiring and another solicitation was being advertised because they needed to get another contract in place to continue the work. Just because Checci was already there is not grounds to sole source the next contract.

    And regarding Fredericks statement, he had better try to justify the sole source action. Otherwise someone is in deep trouble if they did not follow the FARs. That is serious and certain to spark an IG investigation.

    Hopefully someone will issue a FOIA request to the agency that issued the contract and the waiver. Glad I'm not involved in anything close to this one.

    One more point about the sole source: it is common to issue sole source contracts to disadvantaged companies, the 8(a) program for example. However, there has been no mention of Checci being a disadvantaged company. The other side to that is if they were a disadvantanged company there is no way they could have been awarded the sole source contract without knowing the nature of the procurement.

    Keep trying Roger...There is no "renewed" clause in the FARs. You can have a contract with a base bid and option years. The option years are exercised at the discretion of the CO. That was not the case in this contract. With a contract as I have described, there is no requirement to go through any procurement actions until the option years expire.

    Hey Roger,

    More great news today about your boy Barry Obama and his admin.

    [COLOR="Red"]Obama Gets 'F' on Stopping Spread of Weapons of Mass Destruction[/COLO


    In a 19-page report card being published Tuesday, the bipartisan Commission on the Prevention of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Proliferation and Terrorism gives the Obama administration an "F" for failing to take key steps the commission outlined just over a year ago in its initial report.

    Weapons cache, maps found after man’s arrest

    Police find maps of a military facility in the man’s New Jersey motel room
    Forrest said Woodson was wearing a bulletproof vest and carrying a semiautomatic Bushmaster rifle under his jacket when he was arrested. The weapons and maps were found in a later search of his motel room.
    Woodson was being held at the Somerset County Jail on charges including unlawful possession of weapons, defaced firearms, armor penetrating bullets and possession of large capacity ammunition magazines.

    Looks more like an "A" to me.
