  1. Nothing regarding Economic Price Adjustments. So, I'd be expected to get three quotes (when appropriate) for quantity one, then be able to issue a PO to my supplier for quantity 10, and use the savings to mitigate my risk? What about when the government increases the quantity to two a month later? New quotes for quantity two, sell the second one to the government at the same price as the first one, or give the government the benefit of the break? Note that this is a requriements contract. The estimated total quantity under this example would be one, then increased to two on an order a month later with that second one coming out of the stock we purchased in quantity 10. Sorry I wasn't clear.
  2. I’m embarrassed to be such a fundamental question, and I’m sure I could find the answer if I could phrase my query in the right terms, but I’m getting frustrated. I’m a contractor who has been awarded a FFP FMS replenishment contract and I don’t understand whether the government or I get the benefit of my buying in quantity. For instance: the government orders one widget. I get three quotes for that single widget and the best is $5 each. I then go out and get a quote for 10 widgets, and the price drops to $2 each. I still can only sell one to the government under this order, so I’m going out on risk with the other nine. May I charge the government based upon the $5 price or must my basis be no more than $2? The question arises because, as this is a replenishment contract, the government may well come back and order the other nine of these widgets from me at a later date, and at that point I’ll have sold the government 10 widgets for $50, but for which I paid only $20. My procurement department believes that the government should get the benefit of the price break. Given that we’ve gone out on most of that $20 at our risk, I’m not feeling the love.
  3. Would someone please be so kind as to define the term ?open requirements? Context: ??The data reflected that there were seven open requirements against bins X, Y, and Z. There were no open requirements against bin A, but there was one back order noted against bin B. All requirements have been placed on PO.? Thanks
  4. Thanks for the excellent link. Sadly, only two "Qs." D
  5. Thanks for the help so far. My fault for not being clear though... I expect that my question is much more fundamental: What do QBI, QAY, WAY, QDE, QBC, QZO, etc represent? Sometimes they're associated with CASE, and sometimes with "Authority." For example, "I changed the face page to reflect QBD line 001 instead of 019," and block 14 now includes "Authority: QBD 001." Sorry about the confusion. Dave
  6. Can someone explain "ACRN" and "CASE" (QBI QAY WAY QDE QBC QZO etc) to me? I've searched but I'm not finding any info. Thanks much Dave
