Commercial Items

The expansion of the commercial item definition and the requirement that the government acquire commercial items whenever possible has presented new government procurement opportunities. Contracts and subcontracts for commercial goods and services are streamlined, more closely resembling non-government contracts. When FAR Part 12 applies, it takes precedence over any other section of the FAR.

We counsel you on the best ways to take advantage of commercial item contracting to minimize risk and save money. We help both buyers and sellers shape their contracts to address all risks and requirements, including preparing standard purchase orders to be used for all acquisitions or specialized documents for a particular contract.
