The way the contracts were written, the total ceiling is shared by both contractors. The contract is for maintenance and repair of electronic/communication equipt etc. The amount of work is beyond what was anticipated.

Do I understand all of the
awardees are approaching the maximum quantities in their
individual contracts? If so -- and if the dollar value of the
"increased quantity" is below the competition threshold for the
8(a) Program -- I might attempt to "offer" a new requirement to
SBA requesting concurrence the "new scope" be executed as an
out-of-scope modification (one mod for each of the multiple
awards.) I think this approach would be particularly desirable
if the cause for the exhausted quantities is not expected to
continue in your remaining option periods.

YOU ARE NOT REQUIRTED TO AUTHOR A J@A FOR ANY ACTION COMPLETED UNDER THE 8A PROGRAM. IF YOU WERE TO INCREASE THE MAX QUANTITY ON ALL EXISTING CONTRACTS YOU MAY DO SO WITHOUT ADDITIONAL JUSTIFICATION.

GAO's Standard of Review regarding contract modifications which may violate CICA is as follows: In determining whether a modification triggers the competition requirements in CICA, we look to whether there is a material difference between the modified contract and the contract that was originally awarded. Evidence of material difference between the modification and the original contract is found by examining any changes in the type of work, performance period, and costs between the contract as awarded and as modified. We also consider whether the solicitation for the original contract adequately advised offerors of the potential for the type of change found in the modification or whether the modification is of a nature which potential offerors would reasonably have anticipated at the time of the original award...SEE B-278407.2 February 13, 1998 Sprint Communications Company.

An IDIQ/T&M contract, solicited through competitive 8(a) procedures was awarded under multiple award contracts. Task orders are competed among the contractors, however the need has arisen to increase the ceiling due to the actual requirements. Other than through exercising options early, is there a process to add "sole source ceiling" to these 8(a) contracts without a J&A?
