Validation message to prevent new contracts from referencing migrated IDVs The validation message below shall be fired when a new DO, BPA Call, or Part 8 BPA is created and the Referenced IDV PIID begins with: ‘00’, ‘NISH’, ‘UNICOR’.

“The Referenced IDV selected is a migrated IDV and can not be referenced by a new Delivery Order, BPA Call, or BPA.”


IAEDEV-57363 / IAEENH-541

Apply warning message to ‘Close Out’ Modifications The warning message below shall be displayed when the ‘Reason for Modification’ is set to ‘Close Out’.

IAEDEV-57384 / IAEENH-939

Other Transactions - Introduce new data element to identify entity when Consortia is marked ‘Yes’ Per Section 826 of the 2019 NDAA, two new data elements will be added to OT IDVs and OT Awards:

a) Consortia
b) Primary Consortia Member's UEI for this Award

The values will be captured through <genericString04> and <genericString05> respectively via Web Services and Atom Feed.



Blank page displayed for OT IDVs when using the Print button When an OT IDV document is opened in ‘Print’ view on the Web Portal, a blank page is displayed. This defect will be resolved so the contract displays in ‘Print’ mode instead of a blank screen. No


Entity Information Remains Open on a Part 8 BPA with a FAR 4.1102 Exception On a Part 8 BPA, when an FSS with a FAR 4.1102 Exception has been selected from the ‘Referenced IDV’ lookup screen, the UEI and FAR 4.1102 Exception fields remain open.

This defect will be resolved so that both fields remain closed when a Part 8 BPA is referencing an FSS with a FAR 4.1102 Exception entity.



'Consolidated Contract' disabled on a GWAC with a FAR 4.1102 Exception When a FAR 4.1102 Exception is selected on a GWAC prior to selecting a value for the ‘Consolidated Contract’ data element, the 'Consolidated Contract' data element is disabled and a value cannot be selected for the field.

This defect will be resolved so that the ‘Consolidated Contract’ field remains open on a GWAC with a FAR 4.1102 Exception.
