Interested to hear your thoughts. Basically, demand was greater than anticipated and we've hit the contract max early. Sort of. The kicker here is that this IDIQ contract (we'll call it Contract1) is part of a program where another contractor (Contract2) is authorized to order from Contract1 and gets government's negotiated pricing and delivery. The Contract2 contractor then stocks the item at their cos
