  1. Ji20874, Let me first correct my typo, FAR 31.205-46, not 31.206-46..... however I think you understood my mistake. Yes the FAR does mention the JTR for Hawaii, however throughout regulation it states that a contractor should follow the maximun per diem. The maximun per diem is quite different from the flat rate for long term assignments. I am a bit conflicted between the two and the allowability of the maxium rate if we have an associate on travel in Hawaii for >180 days when the JTR now has a reduced rate for long term per diem called "flat rate". As a contractor, should we bill t
  2. no reference to JTR, only reference to travel requirements is that we follow FAR 31.206-46.

  4. Vern - The contracts period of performance ended in 2007. We still have unused cost ceiling. Employees were hired at higher salaries than proposed, however less FTE's were needed to perform the work.

We billed as a % of cost... the issue is that we now have to refund a substantial amount of fee that was billed once the LOE adjustment is made... or maybe upfront at close out. That is what I am not sure about. Do we initiate the refund or wait for the CO to de-obligate?
  5. Joel - The billing of the contract clearly states that we are to bill fee at a % of cost. "The Government shall make payments to the Contractor, subject to and in accordance with the clause in this contract entitled "FIXED FEE" (FAR 52.216-8) or (FAR 52.216-10), as applicable. Such payments shall be equal to X% of the allowable cost of each invoice submitted by and payable to the Contractor...........The fee(s) specified in SECTION B, and payment thereof, is subject to adjustment pursuant to paragraph (g) of this special contract requirement entitled "LEVEL OF EFFORT"..........If the fee(s) is
  6. Thanks Vern for taking the bite. It does help.
  7. Example: CPFF Term/LOE Navy Contract which ended December 2007. Standard Navy LOE clause in contract states; "If the total level of effort specified in paragraph (a) above is not provided by the Contractor during the period of this contract, the Contracting Officer, at its sole discretion, shall either (i) reduce the fee of this contract as follows Fee Reduction = Fee (Required LOE - Expended LOE)/Required LOE or (ii) subject to the provisions of the clause of this contract entitled "LIMITATION OF COST" (FAR 52.232-20) or "LIMITATION OF COST (FACILITIES)" (FAR 52.232-21), as applicable, requ
