The 5 Steps of the Federal IDIQ Procurement Process

The 5 Steps of the Federal IDIQ Procurement Process

Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity contracts, more commonly referred to as IDIQs, are a growing source of contracting in Federal and military spaces. These unique, long-term contracts work by allowing agencies and installations to order any number of construction, renovation or maintenance tasks from an awarded contractor throughout the entire life of the contract. So long as the contractor continues to delivery quality work, they can continue to receive requests for new projects.

Though there are several common types of IDIQs, some of which are awarded to a single contractor while others can be awarded to multiple, most follow a general process. There may be deviations from this process for specific IDIQs. But, for the most part, these five steps are included in the pre-construction phase.
