  1. GAO decision B-308969, Interagency Agreements--Obligation of Funds under an Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity Contract, May 31, 2007 indicates that it is the responsibility of the agency to immediately issue an obligation order off an IDIQ contract meeting the amount of the required minimum purchase. My agency is often competing and awarding IDIQ contracts in the FY prior to the anticipated and advertised POP. Therefore award is often in May -August for POP start date October 1 aligning with the Fiscal Year. In this case is it really appropriate to issue a minimum order at the po
  2. Yes, the contract as a whole verses the traits of the CLINS issue is exactly where my office is running into interpretation confusion. I think I poorly phrased my original question, but the contracts we are managing all the same excepting the place of performance. There are not some FFP, some LH, some TM contracts etc. We have a single combination type (FAR 16.102(b)) contract structure set up with FFP LH CLINS (labor and OT) subject to economic price adjustment, the actual hours are the IQ, and some FFP materials CLINS not subject to price adjustment. This structure is then replicate
  3. I see how my use of "support" was misleading, I meant to convey I am the contract specialist not the contracting officer, but I am writing this from the Government perspective. The program has a national footprint, so we have several regional contracts executing the same government program for national coverage. The string of descriptors is applicable to all of the contracts individually. Each contract has FFP contract line items, some being for labor hours others being for materials, and the FFP labor hours are subject to economic price adjustments. Then among program's contracts the
  4. To clarify my government office does not require offerors to submit certified cost or pricing data with the proposals. Thus far we have used FAR 15.401-1(b)(1) exceptions to certified cost or pricing data requirements; (1) when the contracting officer determines that prices agreed upon are based on adequate price competition. The circumstances of this program's competition meet the standards of adequate price competition defined in 15.403-1(c)(1) two or more responsible offerors, award made to the best value proposal, where price is a substantial factor in source selection, the determin
  5. I support a program with contracts defined as firm-fixed price (FFP), labor hour (LH), time and material (TM), indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) with economic price adjustments from collective bargaining agreements (CBAs)/ wage determinations (WDs). The contracts were awarded under FAR 15 with adequate price competition. Due to some security aspects in the SOW the effort is considered non-commercial and agency described as design/detail. Historically, the program has considered these contracts exempt from Cost Accounting Standards (CAS) per the exempted category (15) below, as
