  1. Can someone direct me to any guidance regarding whether the Service Contract Act applies to CONUS Contractor Employees who are working on a project OCONUS. I am curious if these contractor employees can earn overtime premiums when working Overtime OCONUS - over 40 hours/week. Any guidance would be appreciated.
  2. Joel - if there are specific decisions concerning the adequacy/inadequacy of using binding fee/profit rates and G&A or other markups as adequate price competition then I would love to read. I read through the thread you mentioned and it seemed to jump off the original topic, so I wanted to get back to the original topic. Was that wrong?
  3. Yes I am talking about an RFP for an order under an existing multiple award contract. I was not the person who asked about referencing a contract number - I was simply asking a question about whether stating a contract number was even possible in the RFP since there are multiple contract numbers under the MATOC, and it has been pointed out to me that it is possible - our agency just sends out one blanket request to the multiple potential bidders instead of tailoring each RFP to each potential bidder as Joel stated above. Right, wrong or indifferent, does that clear it up?
  4. I understand that every source selection must include cost/price as an evaluation factor. In this instance (a MATOC) I am in the process of trying to understand how sample tasks, or tasks that are not awardable, can provide a rational basis for the pricing evaluation when the sample tasks are of a FFP and CPFF basis and they are non-executable. In the post award task order environment when the tasks are binding and executable, the multiple awardees will bid their most competitive price under an FFP arrangement. We use price analysis to determine whether the price proposed is reasonable. Under CPFF, the offeror will propose IAW FAR 15.408, Table 15-2 and will propose their most competitive cost proposal and cost realism will be used to assess the realism of the costs proposed. Easy enough. However, when these MATOC sample tasks are fake tasks (even though they are representative samples), how do you evaluate price if you do not lock in direct labor rates, indirect rates, G&A, MH, etc? Additionally, if you only lock in one of these rates (say each individually proposed G&A rate or each individual fee rate as ceiling rates) for the future CPFF awards for each offeror, will that suffice as locking rates on contract and pass the GAO test if protested. Any thoughts or ideas?
  5. We do send out a letter requesting the multiple MATOC awardees bid on the specific task. Therefore, since multiple contract awardees can bid on the request for task order proposals, a contract number can't be referenced.
  6. Isn't it impossible to identify the contract number of a multiple award task order contract when you are about to release an RFP to the multiple awardees? You have no idea who is going to win the impending action. Likewise, there are multiple contract award numbers under the MATOC. What we have done is give the RFP a solicitation number and describe in detail in the narrative what the RFP is for - "this is a request for proposals under solicitation number XXXX for the YYYY Program." This RFP would be sent out to each of the multiple awardees. I assume we have been doing things correct here?
