  1. Yes this is a FAR based contract. It does not include ECMRA or SCR. It was awarded 8/31/2020. The below is what was flowed down in the actual contract award. The contract as awarded is a prime and it is about administration and how to provide the report if there is no timekeeping system etc. CONTRACTOR MANPOWER REPORTING The contractor shall report ALL contractor labor hours (including subcontractor labor hours) required for performance of services provided under this contract via the following secure data collection site: www.ecmra.mil. Reporting inputs will be for the labor executed during the period of performance during each Government fiscal year (FY), which runs October 1 through September 30. While inputs may be reported any time during the FY, all data shall be reported no later than October 31 of each calendar year.
  2. Under a FFP type contract as awarded DARPA flowed down the Manpower Reporting requirements. I have 3 questions: (1) Is a Manpower Report required under a FFP type agreement? (2) If the answer above is yes. If a contractor does not have their employees enter in time in a system how would they report the Manpower? (3) Is a Prime Contractor required to have a timekeeping system for the employees supporting a government contract
  3. My company is a wholly owned subsidiary of a Japanese company. I currently have two official secondees, one is CFO and EVP of our company and other person handles strategy and finance things. We have export licenses that allow them to see export controlled material, but have kept them separated from government contracts. Can these individuals review our government contracts?
  4. My company utilizes our PCard to process supplier payments. We currently have a supplier charging us a processing fee, is this fee chargeable back to the government?
  5. I am trying to locate a good Proof of Concept template. any recommendations will be greatly appreciated
  6. I am thinking ot make it easy I would do .5 for each of the 4 out years. Thoughts?
  7. I need to escalate each of the labor categories independently. Escalation will happen Jan 1 of each year. So would my weighting be .5 each year?
  8. My starting point is Jan 1, it will be based on our FY. I am trying to work escalation for individual labor categories and associated rates. So for example for the first year of the 5 years I have 24 labor cateogires with associated rates, then I will need to escalate out on a weighted average the 2% for years 2 -5. I do have adequate support for the years 2 - 5 for the 2% escalation, and I have spoken in my narrative that we will do a weighted average of the 2% over the base year (Years 2 0 5)
  9. I am working a cost proposal and it has a base period of 5 years. I want to utilize the 2% escalation. SO what I am trying to work is a weighted escalation for the 5 year period based off of 2%.
  10. I need to do a weighted average of 2% over 5 years for a proposal I am working. How would I calculate this?
  11. I have been hired by a company to develop their Procurement Policies & Procedures and to review Subk files. I reviewed a file against an IDIQ Prime Contract. The Subk Manager did not issue the sub an IDIQ, instead they issued a straight LH Subk with no funding and then issues Work Orders against the Subk, with no SOW, no flow downs etc. I have never seen Orders issued against a Subk other than IDIQ< is this standard practice?
