  1. FYI, the presolicitation notice expired in the SAM system in mid January. Our personnel interacting with the USG understand a sole source notice will be posted for two companies, our company and the other one.
  2. Thanks Jacques, so far there has been no release of info, we monitor the new beta SAM website daily. We understand through our sources the only other party capable of manufacturing the product is in communication with the USG during this presolicitation stage, and we trust/ hope the USG would keep us informed of what is going on since there appears to be some delay in issuing the formal solicitation.
  3. Thank-you ji20874. If the USG does respond to any questions during the presolicitation stage, do they have to provide their response to all interested parties?
  4. A Presolicitation notice was issued approximately 80 days ago and to date there is no sign when the USG will issue the formal solicitation. The solicitation included the sentence, “All contractual and technical questions must be submitted in writing via e-mail to……” Is the government required to provide all interested parties any questions and answers related to the Presolicitation notice?
  5. We accepted the Task Order and wanted it. It includes providing some services and an option to provide additional product.
  6. 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."
  7. 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......."
  8. 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.
  9. 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 proposa
  10. 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.
  11. 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?
  12. 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"
  13. Perhaps a starting point would be to check the prescribing clause referenced for each of the mandatory clauses.
  14. 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 of
  15. 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.
