As of 17 July 2018 The Air Force will exercise its right to restrict use of the NETCENTS-2 Application Full & Open IDIQ contract due to the limited value of the current contract ceiling. NO decentralized orders may be placed by DoD (including Air Force) and other Federal Agencies without first obtaining pre-approval and receiving an assigned NETCENTS-2 PMO control number. THIS GUIDANCE IS EFFECTIVE AND WILL BE EXECUTED 17 JULY 2018. Previous guidance pertaining to the AS Small Business Contract remains in effect.
Contracting Officers must request and receive a NETCENTS-2 PMO control number in order to use all NETCENTS-2 Application Services (AS) IDIQ Contracts and make award. This control number must be requested early in the acquisition process before an acquisition strategy decision is made to use this contract vehicle. Contracting Officers shall NOT consider the use of the AS IDIQ contract until approval for use of the contract vehicle has been given by the NETCENTS-2 PMO and a Control Number has been assigned.

ASSB replacement vehicle coming in 2018 (See FBO for Details)
The ordering period for the NETCENTS-2 ASSB IDIQ Contract is NOT being extended and therefore 20 Jun 2019 remains the last day to place orders under the contract.
The number of years for task order performance allowed on orders placed at the end of the ordering period for Application Services Small Business (ASSB) contract has been increased from 3 to 5 years. The modification to reflect this change was signed and fully executed on 24 April 2018. As a result of this modification Program/Contracting Offices can plan their acquisition strategies accordingly and award task orders that have a 5 year PoP.
A D&F is currently being pursued to request blanket approval to allow performance on task orders issued at the end of the ASSB ordering period to continue beyond the allowed limit 10-year limit. Once the D&F has been approved it will be disseminated and posted to the NETCENTS website.
Contracting Officers should adjust task order awards to occur on or before 20 June 2019. If moving the effective date prior to that is not possible please consult with Mr. Patrick Kennerson, NETCENTS-2 Application Services PCO, for further guidance.
