  1. Thanks! Unfortunately, there will not be a "NEW separate contract" and therin lies the unknown challenges.
  2. Scenario: A contract that is currently being administered by DoD will now be managed by NASA. What would need to be done contractually to accommodate the transfer?
  3. In December 2005, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued a report, entitled "DEFENSE ACQUISITIONS: DoD Has Paid Billions in Award and Incentive Fees Regardless of Acquisition Outcomes"( http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d0666.pdf ), which made a number of recommendations on how to improve the use of award fees. Since the publication of this report, the push when using Cost Type contracts had been to stay away from CPAF and CPFF contracts in favor of CPIF. The goal being to link fee to performance outcomes.
  4. Thanks for ALL the help and guidance!
  5. I just found something on the DARPA website that makes the following distinction: "Under a BAA both procurement and non-procurement instruments may be awarded. Under a Research Announcement only non-procurement instruments may be awarded". Anybody know of any other distinctions?
  6. Can anyone help me out by explaing the differences between a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) & a Program Research & Development Announcement(PRDA)? I've looked high and low to find some documentation on distinctions between the two but am still confused. Thanks!
