  1. Ticket was non-refundable and non-transferable. The sub waited to see if that person would be able to travel during the time period (when the ticket was valid - 1 year) but no trips after the canceled trip arose.
  2. One of our subcontractor's trips was canceled by the Government. It is the policy to buy the cheapest ticket. The ticket was canceled once the trip was canceled. The subcontractor waited to see if the FTE could reuse the ticket for another trip. However, a year passed with no trip, and the credit was forfeited. The subcontractor wants to bill for the ticket which in turn the prime would want to bill the Government for the ticket. Is this cost allowable?
  3. We already submitted questions and there was no clarification. Only that they were separate items to submit for the proposal.
  4. This is from the Navy. The closest thing I could find in my research was a Small Business Participation Program Plan. Even that doesn't seem to make sense since this is a MAC bid.
  5. I am looking for someone's interpretation of the difference between a socio-economic plan and Small Business subcontracting plan? I understand that the small business subcontracting plan follows FAR 19.7 and after it is submitted with a proposal, it will be incorporated as part of the contract. The Socio-Economic Plan is submitted as part of a technical proposal but it is not added as an attachment to the awarded contract. "The Offer shall provide a socio-economic plan and provide targets, expressed as percentages of total contract value, for small businesses, small disadvantaged businesses, women-owned small businesses, veteran-owned small businesses, service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, and HUBZone small businesses in any of the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Major Groups as determined by the Department of Commerce. The targets may provide for participation by a prime contractor, joint venture partner, teaming arrangement member, or subcontractor. Targets will be incorporated into and become part of any resultant contract." Is the SE plan simply a regurgitation of the SB Subcontracting Plan since the SB Subcontracting Plan is simply not part of the evaluation criteria? Or is the SE Plan a deeper dive into the SB Subk Plan - meaning the methodology/approach etc to select the subs?

    Purchasing System Input

    Hello - and thank you for your response. I have read the CPSR Guidebook and performed some additional research. My question is - do items like rental contracts or recruiting services contracts need to be entered into our Deltek Purchasing System module? I want to make sure we are compliant when we are eventually audited.
  7. Good morning! As a government services contractor, we have recently purchased software for a purchasing system. We understand that all subcontracts should be entered into the system, but I am wondering if we need to enter for audit compliance - items such as rent contracts/Purchase Orders or contracts/Purchase Orders we have with outside firms for support services such as recruiting or marketing. These obviously impact our rates. Is it of your opinion that these Purchase Orders be entered into our purchasing system module to be compliant for Government audit? Thank you!
