  1. And yet FAR 13 allows for "offers". FAR 13-106-1(a) says Contracting Officer's shall consider the guidance in 13.104 and the following before requesting quotations or offers and FAR 13.106-2 is titled "Evaluation of quotations or offers". To add to it, FAR 12 is used in conjuction with either FAR Par 13, 14 and 15. It makes it difficult to mentor the junior personnel, especially when using FAR Subpart 13.5 Test Program for Certain Commercial Items. Those waters can get real muddy. Now if there was an Alternate 1 to the provision for use with FAR 13 SAP and the words "Quote or Quotations" were used instead of "Offer"..., now that might be something. But that's crazy talk, right?
  2. John Doe - I have to ask..do you KNOW for sure what type of contract it is that you have? Did someone "tell" you it's an IDIQ contract or did you read it in the contract language somewhere? It's sounding like you might have a Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) and not an IDIQ. Does your contract have a "guaranteed minimum order" stated anywhere? As much as I hate to say this, and it's not meant to be offensive, but far too often contractors really have no idea what type of contract they have (or don't have). See if maybe you have a BPA versus an IDIQ.
  3. Block 13( on the SF30 form is at fault. For an administrative modification the SF30 says "The above number contract/order is modified to reflect..blah blah...""Pursuant to the Authority of FAR 43.103(". Well...the SF30 does have the word "Authority" in front of FAR 43.103(. Just sayin. Then of course you go to FAR 43.103( and it says that a unilateral modifications are used, for example, to - Make administrative changes. FAR 43.103 is now seen by many as The Authority for the types of contract modifications listed. Time to modify the SF30?
  4. Block 13 on the SF30 has Blocks 13A through 13E. There are actually 2 boxes that are checked. Blocks 13A through 13D - check the one appropriate for the contract action (just check off one (1) box). Then go to block 13E where it says IMPORTANT: Contractor [ ] is not, [ ] is required to sign this document and return _____ copies to the issuing office. Check the appropriate box. Yes, Block 13 on the SF30 requires 2 blocks to be checked.
