In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

Rely on the FBO. Any money (except black programs and they are just buried in other things) that is awarded sole source MUST be published if it exceeds a fairly small amount (used to be $50k, but may be higher now) in any fiscal year. Look for solicitations that have "Justification and Approval" statements. These are AWARDS. Anythng else is just a plan, a thought, not real.

This is the WB8 Solicitation. It has a J&A statement. This is real.



The $2M lines you stated were preliminary PLANs to spend the recovery money. That $2M turned into the $7.8M recovery money AWARD. NICE!

There were three pre-solicitations in late FY08 / early FY09 that never showed any real activity. These may or may not have been awarded per-se. However, (though I can't find the original) I recall that the Jan 2009 pre-solicitation started out at ~$200k but the J&A showed ~$300k awarded. I figure that the small amounts from FY09 were rolled into the one J&A.

It is not clear to me if we will get any indication that the +~$4M will ever be acknowledge since the current J&A says ~$10M which is sufficient detail to cover both parts of the award.
