Answer:- Thank you for writing to us. As per your query, a procuring agency cannot award a contract on “Indefinite Delivery & Indefinite Quantity” basis (IDIQ) to any supplier or contractor. Procurement procedures and the relevant requirements outlined in Public Procurement Rules, 2004 and the relevant regulations made thereunder may be followed strictly in each procurement with the public funds.
