  1. Carl - On second look I realized that this is for sole sourcing the procurement, and I've already gone down that road. Thank you though!
  2. Thank you all for your input. My contracting officer is very "by the books", so I was hoping for a FAR referrence, but maybe a Vern Edwards blog entry will convince her I work for DOI, I should have indicated that from the start. Again, thank you for your input - I'll definitely keep this in mind once I'm signing my own contracts. TW

  4. I am working on a very small construction contract that is very straight forward - construction of a few miles of power lines valued at less than $250k. My contracting officer tells me that I need to have the solicitation out for 30 days, but since this is a sole source to a utility and very time sensative I thought I could shorten the solicitation period. The Utility Co. tells me they can have a proposal ready within a few days. Anyway, there is some discent on the subject in my office - does anyone have any experience in this matter? Advice? Thansk!
  5. I am working on a new requirement for a utility contract. I've reviewed part 41, and I don't see any reason why I can't use Simplified Acquisition Procedures under the test program. Is there an inherent restriction on using SAP for utility contracts? Thank you.
  6. Termination For Default--Consideration

    All, This is a complicated topic! To answer your question Vern - I'm still not 100% clear, but it seems clear that there isn't a cut and dry answer... However, here's what I understand: *The contract can be modified by extending the delivery date without consideration from the contractor *If the contract is modified without consideration, America's tax dollars may not be being spent as they should be *This may be in violation of the principal behind FAR 1.602-2 *If an IG were to review this contract, I'd better have a good explanation Please correct me if I am wrong. I appreciate your thoughtful response to my question; you are correct in that I am fairly new to contracting - about 18 months. Question: How can a contracting officer accept a new schedule without modifying the contract? I thought those things went hand in hand... Thank you, TW
