H.R. 6369: Expanding Contracting Opportunities for Small Businesses Act of 2018

Sep 25, 2018 at 7:11 p.m. ET. On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass, as Amended in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 6369 (115th) in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 6369 raises the dollar amount of certain small business sole-source contract awards in statute for inflation and removes the limitation of option years from the maximum dollar values permitted to be awarded through sole-source contracts. This results in contracting officers being able to award larger sole-source contracts. To mitigate the risk of fraud and abuse, the bill strengthens oversight by instituting an eligibility determination check requiring the Small Business Administration to verify that a sole-source contract intended to be awarded to a women-owned (WOSB) or service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) is an eligible WOSB or SDVOSB. The bill also requires the Government Accountability Office to assess whether federal sole-source award data is accurate and identify awards made to ineligible entities.
