No-Cost Contract

NCSI’s no-cost contract vehicles for event planning and integrated marketing services have been validated by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), are approved for use by all federal agencies, and can dramatically simplify the acquisition process. According to GAO Opinion B-308968 No-Cost Contracts for Event Planning Services:

“We conclude that the NCSI contract is a valid, binding no-cost contract that agencies may utilize to obtain conference planning services”

More recently, both the Department of Defense and the U.S. Army have validated the use of no-cost contracts subject to approval authority.

We can answer all your questions concerning no-cost contracts. Allow us to provide your agency with all the facts, regulations and precedents (including citations and references).
