  1. Don, i don't know if the work is compeleted or not. It's been 4 months and i've just received a response to my protest. Contract specialist didn't mention anything about the completion of the job. This is the content of the email sent to me: ----------- After further research of the contract file, DLA has determined that an error occurred during the evaluation process. Unfortunately, the Government has already incurred a significant portion of costs associated with this award. Due to this, DLA respectfully requests that your company. withdraw their protest and allow DLA to continue with this award as it is in the best interests of the Government. Please provide a response to this request by COB 22 July 2021. The error in the evaluation process has been noted and steps have been taken to avoid this mistake in future evaluations. We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience this may have caused. -----------
  2. Yes it is. They just want me to withdraw my protest, no info about the rest..
  3. Greetings.. Yesterday i've received an email from DLA asking me to withdraw my protest for an award issued in March.. The award was given to another company for a much higher cost.. I've intentionally kept the quote low to get the job but yet my bid got neglected. Now they're telling me that they accept they've made a mistake, further evaluations will be made more carefully (which never happens) and if it's ok for me to withdraw my protest because of the costs incurred by the government.. this is something i'm seeing for the first time and would like to get some advice from experienced users.. Should i accept this request and withdraw my protest or deny it to finalize the process? The amount to get from the job was about $12.000. What might be the process if i deny their request? Will they give the job to me or relist the solicitation? Thanks in advance for your help..
  4. Thank you Don.. Much appreciated..
  5. The solicitation prepared for some metal products consists a requirement to fill a dd form 1423 which is included in technical data package. We'd like to bid for this solicitation but have no idea how to fill the form. The form says that the contractor will fill only block 17 and 18 both of which have contents like price group and estimated total price. Even though i've read the instructions below the form, i still have no idea what to write inside of those blocks. Did any of you fill this form before? A little help would be so appreciated.
  6. After searching a bit more this is what i also figured out. I think the attached clause b.2 is related to the similar situations.
  7. The contract officer replied and told me that i should submit a PAR and wait for the reply from the product specialist. I hope i can get a reply within this year 🤭
  8. Yes it's a DLA order. I've already contacted the contract administrator and waiting for a reply. But yet i wanted to obtain a supporting info in case they don't get back to me.
  9. Hi everybody. I need some help with my DLA contract. The contract requires mil-std-130n identification marking of us military property. I've read the whole mil-std-130 document but still confused about what to do. The drawing says "identify iaw mil-std-130 except do not apply part number to part." Nothing else. The drawing note is attached as image for your review. My questions: 1) If i should not apply part number on the part, what else should i do to comply with mil-std-130? Does it mean apply part number to a label, tag, plate and then fasten it to the item or apply the part number to the unit pack? 2) which data should i apply? Is only the part number enough or both mfr cage and part number must be applied together? Is NSN also required with cage and PIN? The drawing doesn't specify anything about cage number or nsn. 3) We are the dealer not the actual manufacturer. The actual mfr manufactures the items for us and we sell it to dla. So should i apply our cage or the manufacturer's cage? I've been reading so many documents regarding mil-std-130 and all these info made me so confused. Any help would be so appreciated. Thanks for reading.
  10. Yes the contract has FAR 52.246-15 and i’ve read it but couldn’t understand how to deliver the certificate. But your reply made it clear. Thank you.
  11. Hi, Our DLA contract requires the certificate of conformance. I know how to write it but have no clue about what to do afterwards. Will i attach the signed and scanned certificate to the invoice at the wawf website or should i put it to the shipping box? Searched a lot but found nothing about the process. Just wanted to make sure to avoid any mistakes. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.
  12. This is an important point you’ve mentioned. I wouldn’t like to get involved in a situation regarding violation or faulty items. Choosing the dealer option seems to be the most reasonable way. DLA might claim that i’m not the actual manufacturer but they can’t do the same thing for being a dealer.
  13. If Walsh Healey doesn’t apply for commercial items and the items i’m submitting quotes for are commercial items, how am i being considered a broker? I didn’t get it.
  14. 331315 and 332722 are the two naics codes i usually quote for which are also listed for my company on SAM. There are some solicitations where a trademark or name of the manufacturer should be stamped on products but i haven’t received that type of contract yet.
