  1. Agreed. Thank you! (Disclosure: for anyone curious, this question was generated during acq planning only. I'm not experiencing problem(s) with any AbilityOne contractor. In my experience, they've been great! Find one near you today https://www.sourceamerica.org/nonprofit-locator.)
  2. So, the thoughts are that: -7005 (Business Systems) clause doesn't apply (i.e. exempt under price set by law/regulation, etc) - so it's either self-deleting or a clause prescription violation (agree), -7006 (Accounting System Admin) clause applies (is prescribed not by -7005, but by 48 CFR § 242.7503) so the accounting system criteria apply, As such, significant deficiencies may be identified by Contracting Agency (or DCAA audit assist) under -7006, A contracting officer can disapprove an accounting system under -7006, As such, corrective action process in -7006 applies, and... so... Thoughts on withholds? Possible or not possible? They're in -7005. -7006 just says, "do -7005" (paraphrase, lol). Thanks,
  3. Hey Contracting professionals, I'm trying to see if the DFARS 252.242-7005 (and other clauses and systems requirements referenced therein) apply to my AbilityOne Contractor... 252.242-7005 "applies to covered contracts that are subject to the Cost Accounting Standards", 48 CFR § 9903.201-1 - CAS applicability (b) [exemptions] (5) Contracts and subcontracts in which the price is set by law or regulation. Prices in the AbilityOne Program are set by the AbilityOne Comission (i.e. law or regulation). Therefore, even if I have included the 252.242-7005 and 252.242-7006 in my award, as CAS exempt, these will not apply to the AbilityOne contractor, correct? Thanks in advance, prudentmindstx
