  1. We accepted the Task Order and wanted it. It includes providing some services and an option to provide additional product.
  2. We had an IDIQ contract that expired Sept. 8, 2018 and our USG customer awarded a Task Order Sept. 6, 2018 with Period of Performance to Sept. 2023. Wording in the IDIQ is: "Pursuant to FAR 16.505(c) and 10 U.S.C. 2304b, the total ordering period of this contract, shall not exceed five years. The period of performance for individual orders shall be specified in each awarded order."
  3. I have seen in 52.217- 6 and -7: -".......within no less than 60 days of the end of the period of performance...." -"........within one year after contract award......."
  4. I agree with the above comments about not including reference to the proposal in the contract if I was the contracting officer. But as the contractor we prefer to have it included. I work "both sides" in my company and when I set up contracts with suppliers I don't like to include their proposals.
  5. We have this clause in a number of prime contracts awarded to our company: H.#. INCORPORATION OF TECHNICAL PROPOSAL The Contractor’s technical proposal dated XXXXX, submitted in response to solicitation XXXXXXX, is hereby incorporated into the contract by reference. The Contractor shall perform the work substantially as set forth in Order awards. Any revisions to the technical proposal that would significantly alter the technical approach must be approved in writing by the Contracting Officer. In the event of a conflict between the Contract and the Contractor’s technical proposal, the Contract shall take precedence.
  6. Thanks. I did now find and check 1.6049-4, but there is no reference to "International Organization". It appears there may have been an update to the CFR. When I search for it on the internet under this link: https://www.law.cornell.edu/cfr/text/26/1.6049-4 "International Organization" shows up six times, five of which are in Example 3, Item (G). But in the CFR website (" e-CFR data is current as of December 29, 2016") a search for "International Organization", does not show up any results at all.
  7. FAR 52.204-3 Taxpayer Identification, para. (e) includes "International organization per 26 CFR 1.6049-4;". But when I check the CFR's, §1.60 is shown as [Reserved]. Am I missing something?
  8. I am working on a proposal to DOD DTRA and the BAA requires a small business subcontracting plan, but does not provide an example of the format DOD expects to be followed. I searched the internet and have been unable to find any examples. I have worked on plans for DHHS in the past and they would provide a template. The BAA simply refers to the FAR's: "Any Offeror, other than small businesses, submitting a proposal for an award with a value more than the amount listed in FAR 19.702(a)(1) and that has subcontracting possibilities, must submit a subcontracting plan in accordance with FAR 19.7" and " The narrative in the subcontract plan must address each element listed in FAR 19.704(a)(1)-(11)." Can anyone provide advice on where I might find a template or is the format up to the individual offeror? Thank-you
  9. Perhaps a starting point would be to check the prescribing clause referenced for each of the mandatory clauses.
  10. I am just reading this topic now as a situation recently came up simliar to this. I understand a contract can have CLINs with different periods of performance and we currently have two contracts with 11 and 20 CLIN's respectively with different periods of performance. The complication arose because the end date of the latest CLIN was getting out of sync with the Section F Clause Period of Performance. What the Contracting Offcer did was set up a table summarizing the period fo performance for each CLIN in Section F. We have a third contract now with a different agency and the contracting officer is issuing a mod to exercise an optional CLIN but the performance period of this CLIN through December 2015 will take it beyond the February 2015 period of performance in the Section F clause. When we try to explain this to him, he keeps saying this mod is only for the CLIN being exercised and does not seem to understand the Section F Period of Perfornance information will be out of sync with this CLIN. In our last communication to him we laid out a table, simliar to what the other contracting officer did in an attempt to make this clear. We are still waiting a reply Are we being unreasonable in expressing our concern about the period of performance information in Section F being kept up to date?
  11. Can money from one CLIN be transferred to another CLIN on the same contract? Our first CO was doing it, but the new one on the same contract is not.
  12. Some more background info. The total potential value of the support that might be provided by several consultants working for the large company we are attempting to contract with in support of our US gov't contract is ~$385K. The CO is challenging the hourly rate of one individual who, if we used him to the maximum hours projected for his support, would total ~$70K of that amount. The CO wants a reduction on his rate that would reduce the overall total by $3,500. It's not a significant amount and we will resolve the issue, but it just seems strange.
  13. Just received a message from the CO on our contract referring to The Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) publishing a notice in the Federal Register announcing it has raised the cap for government reimbursement of certain contractor executive and employee compensation and the hourly rate which our consultant has proposed is too high. I found a document on the internet dated Dec. 4, 2013 which seems to be what the CO is referring to, "Determination of Benchmark Compensation Amount for Certain Executives and Employees", but am unable to attach it or include a link to it for this post. Any further comments on this are appreciated.
  14. Thanks to everyone. I had looked at FAR 31.205-33 prior to my original post and was just checking to make sure I had not missed anything. This is a great forum by the way.
  15. Looking for advice on whether there is any FAR that defines maximum hourly rates to pay consultants. As a prime contractor, we proposed to use consultants in support of work being done on a CPFF line item and were told the FAR's do not allow the hourly rates which the consultant quoted.
