  1. FFP for 12 months

    Not sure "worrying" describes how I feel. I am trying to understand the nature of "proposed" vs. "actuals" in an FFP environment. Also, hours proposed and actual hours worked, even under a FFP contract, becomes very handy information when it comes to market research for follow-ons. Thanks for the input. I get the idea!
  2. FFP for 12 months

    You're right. I did/am. SCA and FLSA does not apply in this case. And I didn't set requirements on employer to employee vacation package... So, it sounds like I award at 2050, and hope the contractors work the hours.

  4. FFP for 12 months

    Thank you! No the PWS does not specify 1 FTE or number of required bodies. The proposal did not provide information on the "rollup" of the proposed hours. I have not experienced a situation where additional hours are provided for another body providing oversight and it being rolled up onto one labor category. I have always seen a separate labor category, or slightly higher labor rates to include the 'additional' overhead expenses. Yes, this is for a 12 month duration for a lump sum price. So we would basically award the contract at $100, 000. Instead of setting it up with QTY 1 x UP 100,000 = 100,000 (lump sum), I am setting it up as QTY 12 x UP 8333.33 = 100,000 (months).
  5. Quotes vs. Proposals

    SUPER THANK YOU TO ALL! This requirement would fall under FAR 15 because it exceeds 150k, but Subpart 13.5 allows for use of those procedures for above SAT. Which confused me further.
  6. Quotes vs. Proposals

    Hello, Can I use FAR 13.5 procedures and ask industry for a "proposal"? I was advised that FAR 13 procedures should request Quotes, and FAR 15 procedures should request proposals. I have an 5.5M knowledge based services requirement that requires a Technical Capability write up, Staffing plan, and management plan. I would say this requirement is a little more complex than a 150k buy.
  7. FFP for 12 months

    Hello, I am contemplating a one-year FFP contract, structured with 12 months at a fixed price/lump sum. I have an IGE estimated at 2,020 hours for 1 FTE (salaried). Contractor proposed 2,050 to accomplish the task for that year at $100,000 . Overtime is not allowed. This is not set up as a LH contract or T&M. Given this scenario; Question: 1) Can a FTE work more than 1,920, which I believe is the standard number of hours after required vacation? If so, and, Govt agrees 2,050 is reasonable, does this mean the Govt is compensating the FTE's vacation hours of 130 hrs even though the FTE doesn't use the vacation? What if the FTE ends up only working 2,000 hrs in that year? I assume the contractor will still get full payment of $100,000, correct? Thanks for helping!
