Online Representations and Certifications Application (ORCA)
A new requirement for vendors became a Federal mandate as published in the Federal Acquisition Circular 2001-26, FAR case 2002-024. ORCA was developed as part of the Business Partner Network (BPN), which is a component of the Integrated Acquisition Environment (IAE) E-Gov initiative.
The final rule requires offeror to:
- Provide representations and certifications electronically via the BPN website (orca.bpn.gov/) thus reducing the administrative burden on vendors who have been submitting the same reps and cert's repeatedly for various solicitations
- To maintain the representations and certifications at least annually so they stay current,
- To make changes that affect only one solicitation by completing sections of specific provisions that are required by the FAR, included in the solicitation.
