The U.S. Agency for International Development’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) recommends that offerors use the following format to submit proposed Individual Subcontracting Plans, including modifications. While this template has been designed to be consistent with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.219-9, other formats of a subcontracting plan may be acceptable. However, failure to include the essential information as exemplified in this model may be cause for either a delay in acceptance or the rejection of a bid or offer where the clause is applicable. Further, the use of this template is not intended to waive other requirements that may be applicable under FAR 52.219-9 or that may appear in the Government’s solicitation. This template is not intended to replace any existing Corporate/Commercial Plan that is more extensive.
A subcontracting plan is generally required if the estimated cost of the contract may exceed $750,000 ($1,500,000 for construction) and the contract has subcontracting possibilities. See FAR 19.702 for exemptions.
