The objective of this pre-solicitation notice is to inform the vendor community that the U.S. Department of Justice intends to release a solicitation in support of the Private Counsel Program. The Department is seeking attorneys to litigate both unsecured and secured debt collection cases for various Federal agencies. Using negotiated procedures authorized in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 15, the Department intends to award a single contract or multiple contracts in support of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of New York.
The Department launched the Private Counsel Program following the passage of the Federal Debt Recovery Act of 1986 which first authorized the use of private law firms for this purpose. The Debt Collection Management Staff manages the program with legal oversight by the United States Attorney's Offices at the district level. The program is currently running in 19 districts nationwide, with further expansion planned. This procurement is strictly limited to attorneys who are licensed to practice law in the Federal judicial districts. Contractors will be required to pursue debt collection activities which parallel existing industry procedures that have proven to be effective and efficient; to interact with Government representatives at defined stages of the collection process (i.e., settlement, compromise, etc.); and to input relevant case data in a computer database maintained by the Government. Contract payments will be based primarily on contingency fee payments for unsecured debt collection and firm-fixed prices for secured debt collection. Other direct costs and/or material costs may be reimbursed on an actual cost basis. It is projected that each contract awarded will have a period of five years from the date of award, which may be inclusive of option periods. The anticipated number of awards will be specified in the solicitation.
