  1. Joel's guidance about reading Formation of Government Contracts was on target. It referenced B-169368, APRIL 21, 1970, 49 COMP. GEN. 713, which even though it dealt with an IFB, the principle can be applied to an RFP.
  2. Joel, Thank you for making my morning. As always, I enjoyed your response and I totally agree with you! Thank you for providing your "on target" insight. You have provided me with some great thoughts to provide to the CO on the path that should be followed! Again, thanks. Van
  3. Vern, Thanks for the quick response. I have told the CO that an amendment should be issued; however, the CO wants to make award without issuing an amendment. So, I was wondering if there are some GAO cases that relate to this issue, as this will help the CO understand why an amendment should be issued. Van
  4. My office issued a construction RFP without stating the period of performance (POP) nor did the RFP provide for a place for the contractors to propose a POP. We have received the proposals, and of course, no one provided a POP. I am trying to find guidance, case law, etc., to provide the CO as to what should be done. If the low offeror is asked for their POP, but not the other contractors, I think a protest could be lodged. What are some issues that could occur? Is there the possibility that if the government had stated the POP in the RFP, could prices have been different? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  5. The equipment is used to service our aircraft when they land at the airport. After much research, styrene's suggestion to use a bailment agreement is on target.
  6. Thanks for the info. Is there a certain format for the agreement? Any specific FAR clauses? Any other specifics would be very helpful.
  7. My office has a requirement to determine the best/most appropriate way to allow for government property (flight line equipment) to be placed at various civilian airports. The equipment, valued over the SAT threshold, will be maintained IAW military standards for preventive maintenance by each airport. The airports, in turn, will be able to use the equipment in their daily operations. Discussions with the airports indicate that there will be no cost to the government. We have done research to determine what would be the proper way to allow for this arrangement, but have not found an acceptable method. Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
