    If they are in scope modifications, why are you preparing J&As?

    Competition may be required for modifications of existing contracts if there is a cardinal change to the contract (such as an increase to the total estimated amount of the award, a change to the Statement of Work (SOW), or an extension of the period of performance).

    Do you think there should be?

    Are you talking about J&As or JEFOs?

    Are you posting the JEFOs on FedBizOpps and your agency website so that all contract holders can see them?

    Yes I think there should, mods sometimes add up to be 5x the original amount of the inital contract.

    J&A as in Justification and Approvals I use it loosely to cover the authorities under Subpart 6.3, the J&A's were Justifications for Other Than Full and Open Competition. Is that what JOFO stand for?

    J&A's were under the SAT so posting was required, just a copy for the file. 

  3. Hypothetical situation . Let's say you have a competitively awarded Multiple Award IDIQ contract for Security Services, you compete and award a Task Order (Base +4 Options) for $100k.  Throughout the 5 year Period of performance 3 separate J&A's for ceiling increases of $75K were approved, these are in scope modifications and there is enough capacity on the IDIQ . So you have an Initial Task Order value of $100k and three modifications that have a value of $225K . 

    I would like to know if there is guidance on a maximum cumulative modification dollar amount, for example, something saying " all modifications shall not exceed the total initial contract value by 75%".  



  4. I appreciate all of the input, I’m leaning toward using FAR 52.237-3, here’s the scenario:

    Base IDIQ expired January 2017

    52.217-8 was used to extend Task orders to July 2017

    52.237-3 will be used for phase in/out


    52.217- 8 says “The option provision may be exercised more than once, but the total extension of performance hereunder shall not exceed 6 months.”  Does the phase in/out up to 90 days conflict?
