I solicited pricing from my prospective suppliers to respond to a government RFP. Specifically, I solicited subcontractors for their CPFF rates so we (i.e. the prime contractor) could include those in our response to a government solicitation under which we are seeking a prime contract. This contract is currently pending award. We anticipate being issued a CPFF ID/IQ contract (most likely a multiple award ID/IQ) from the government and then responding to individual competitive task solicitations under that prime over the next 5 years. The problem and the reason for the question in the original post is that I do not know exactly when we will issue tasking to the subcontractors. As such, I think their then current rates and even the labor categories that the subcontractors may propose at the task order level will differ from what was included in our response to the government solicitation for the prime contract. Thus I think the price analysis should happen then. Note that I do have an analysis of the rates we bid as it is a requirement of the solicitation and our own policies and procedures that we provide one. IT just seems confusing to try and use that at the task order level when the pricing and labor categories have changed. That's why I'm a huge fan of the BOA idea. I don't know what labor categories or rates a supplier will bid until we get to the task order. It seems like a waste to do all of the analysis at the master agreement level when these components are unknown. I do not think there is any reason to set the cost in the BOA itself. I'd prefer not to if it could be avoided. I'd rather establish and analyses costs once the actual piece of work is identified and I receive a task order proposal from a supplier for that piece of work.
