A - Amendment - Amendments change the existing terms or conditions of the contract.
E - Extension - A contract extension is the continuation of an existing contract for a period of time under the same terms and conditions. Unless authorized by statute, a contract extension must be signed prior to the expiration date of the existing contract. Section 287.057(12), Florida Statutes, authorizes contract extensions once for up to six months. Contracts procured under other Statutes such as Chapters 255 or 337, Florida Statutes, may have different requirements.
R - Renewal - Renewals are identified by extensions of the contract dates with additional compensation for additional goods or services. The agency is asking the contractor to provide more of the goods or services that were requested in the original contract under the same terms and conditions. Renewals must be executed prior to the expiration date of the agreement, and must have all the same terms and conditions of the original agreement. Renewals are contingent on satisfactory performance evaluation and may be renewed for a period that may not exceed three years or the term of the original contract, whichever is longer, pursuant to section 287.058(1) (g), Florida Statutes. If the goods or services are purchased as a result of a competitive solicitation, the renewal price must be specified in the bid, proposal or reply.
GA - Grant Award Agreements - The receipt of grant dollars by a reporting entity that are either federal or state financial assistance or grant funding by another non-governmental entity. GAs will not be required for inclusion in the FACTS system during the initial implementation of the system.
RA - Revenue Agreements - Contracts where revenue is received for goods and services provided on behalf of governmental entities. An example of this would be contracted concessions or food services, where the contractor manages the delivery of services and charges user fees for them, and then submits commissions back to the agency.
GD - Grant Disbursement Contracts - Contracts for the expenditure of funds associated with a Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number, associated with a Catalog of State Financial Assistance (CSFA) number, or associated with a grant from a non-governmental entity to a recipient or sub-recipient by the reporting entity. These contracts are identified using the vendor checklist to classify them as either vendors or sub recipients. Contractors who are identified as vendors, should be classified as Contract Type = SC – Standard Two-Part agreements by statute, and are required to be reported in FACTS. Contractors determined to be sub recipients will not be required for inclusion in the FACTS system during the initial implementation of the system. They are scheduled for inclusion during phase five, which is scheduled for an April 30, 2013 implementation date, but may be included earlier if the user agencies opt to do so.
MA - Master Agreements - Agreements where the pricing is agreed upon at the point of execution. However, services are not authorized to begin until a separate contractual document is issued (i.e., task or work orders). Examples of this would be surveyor contracts issued by the Department of Environmental Protection or engineering and surveying contracts issued by the Department of Transportation.
MP - Multi-Agency Participation Agreements - These are agreements where the pricing is agreed upon at the point of execution. However, multiple agencies are allowed to receive the services being provided by the Vendor. No separate written agreement is needed for the participating agencies to use the multi-agency contract. They would need a separate procurement document. An example of this is a State Term Contract that was procured by DMS or the court reporter contract that is procured by the Attorney General’s Office.
SC - Standard Two-Part Agreements by Statute - These are agreements where two parties agree on standard terms and conditions pursuant to applicable laws.
PO - Purchase Order - This is an agency document used to formalize the purchase of services or commodities at a specific rate and/or terms.
