    Cost Anylsis for T&M Contract

    ICG is a mistake. I meant to write ICGE.
  3. I'm completely lost. I have administer a T&M contract and the unit I am administering this contract has requested repair for an item. The unit has submitted an estimate and a SOW for the services and the contractor has submitted a proposal. So, my first question is regarding the labor hours: What cost evaluation method should I use? Can I use the labor hours from the ICG only? What justification do I have if I only use the ICG?
  4. If a contract is funded only to the end of a CR, is that considered fully funded or is that considered incrementally funded? And let's say this same contract has a POP of one year, yet the CR period is three months.
  5. This is in regard to FFP service contracts. I have some contracts that are being incrementally funded from one CR to another and am confused about how to avoid being in violation of the ADA, an act I really don't understand well. Say a program manager provides 1/4 of funds for half a year for a contract that does not cross fiscal years because the CR (or so they say). Let us say I don't receive more funds until two weeks after three months into the year to cover the fourth month of the contract. Is that a violation of the ADA if the services were being performed during those two weeks without funding even though the services were paid for on time ar the end of the month? Now say a contract is funded right up to the end of a CR and funds can not be provided until a new CR is passed. Must services be stopped at the end of the CR if the program manager can't provide a purchase request a week after the PR is funded? These contracts have the subject to availablity clauses in them.

    Process of Excluding Small Businesses

    Thank you, I had no idea what the "rule-of-two" is.

    Process of Excluding Small Businesses

    No, I'm asking. I don't mean to be glib. I'm not really sure when it would be a consideration or not. The solicitation will not have any type of geographical limitations except if must be situated in the USA.
  8. I hope I'm stating this correctly. From how I interpret FAR part 19.2, generally, I am honor-bound to seek out and utilize small businesses to the maximum extent possible. But, at what point can I say that it is not beneficial to limit a solicitation to small businesses? For example, say I use the SBA Dynamic Small Business Search Engine and find only three small business concerns 2000 miles away that meet the requirement, is that justification for full and open competition? As far as distance is concerned, what is reasonable to exclude small businesses? Statewide searches? Congressional district searches? And to what extent would I need to utilize the SBA office? If I ask the SBA office for assistance and they can not find any small businesses that can meet the requirement, is that sufficient to exclude small businesses from the solicitation? Is it my responsibility to find small businesses in the area and document my attempts to persuade them to register for SAM and the SBA? If I post a RFI and no one shows interest, how much weight is this given? If the only business concern that shows interest is not a small business, how does that weight in my consideration?
