|Non-priced Performance Period Extension of Fixed-Price FSS Order|
on Thursday, December 20, 2001 - 04:31 pm:
The PCO gave the contractor written notification (not a SF 30, modification) to continue work XXX number of days beyond the contract expiration date on a firm-fixed price task order. After the work was completed, the contractor submitted an astronomical proposal. The PCO refuses to negotiate the price because it's a FFP supply schedule order. I was always taught that it is okay to try to negotiate price whenever possible--FSS or not. What's your opinion?
You can negotiate price on FSS. In fact, the GSA ordering guidance tells agncies to do that as the dollar value of the order gets larger.
Further explanation from Anon. 12-20, 4:30 p.m. I realize the labor rates and other cost elements are set by the GSA contract, however, can't the PCO challenge the labor categories and hours billed?
We need more info. The nature of the problem is not clear.
More clarification from from Anon. 12-20.
Well, I think you've answered your own question. The PCO
appears to be willing to pay the contractor at the stipulated
hourly rates without investigating the validity of the delay
If this really was a ffp order, I do not understand why the
contractor worked without a funded mod. Don't understand why the
Contractor thinks they will get paid? Almost sounds like it has
to be treated as a claim?
