I had a requirement last year for annual data buys in which we receive a delivery at the end of each fiscal year for one data package. We do not require anything else from the contractor between deliverables. Last year, we cut an Order for a base year plus four one-year options to cover the future deliveries, and the base/options ended the day the delivery was due. I was just informed by my customer that they forgot to submit a requisition to exercise the first option, and the Order is now expired. I am trying to figure out how to prevent this from happening again in the future by figuring out if there is a better way to structure this Order. Since the options do not need periods of performance because they are single deliveries, how can I structure this Order? Should I have the options state a delivery date and a note that they will be exercised "no later than XX days before delivery"? Is it even permissible to have a multi-year order for deliveries? We can not cut an IDIQ or BPA for this type of purchase. I know that for non-severable work, we could have one CLIN that extends past a year, but we are not sure if we need all future deliverables, hence why we had options added.
