Elleven-O-Two commented on Don Mansfield's blog entry in Don Mansfield's BlogI don't see what is so egregious about a word that changed/evolved its meaning over time. There are plenty of such words in our vocabulary. The language is a living thing. For example: egregious now describes something outstandingly bad or shocking, but it originally meant remarkably good. It comes from the Latin egregius, meaning "illustrious, select"—literally, "standing out from the flock," from ex-, "out of," and greg-, "flock." Apparently the current meaning arose from ironic use of the original. https://windowthroughtime.wordpress.com/tag/original-meaning-of-egregious/
Elleven-O-Two replied to CSalt's topic in Contract AdministrationGood day, illzoni. Considering that the FAR 17.204 discusses establishment of options on a base contract, you offer interesting interpretation. Could you pin-point the exact location in 17.204 allowing for unilateral retroactive extension of options' POP? Also, do you think that situations where sufficient actions to extend a period of performance (or to prevent a delay) were not timely taken before POP expiration may signify the lack of proper contract administration on governments’ side?
Elleven-O-Two replied to CSalt's topic in Contract Administrationillzoni, Please clarify, are you saying that contract modification may be processed after POP expires to extend POP retroactively?
