We are the prime contractor under a DOD contract is how I should have stated it. We are preparing to send and RFP to then award a subcontract/PO to an Army Depot. When doing so with other non-USG entities we obtain certs, flow the appropriate FAR/DFAR, include clauses as applicable per threshold, etc. I suppose we could request all the same in our RFP but I am getting caught in circular thinking. For instance, when I think through do we ask the Depot to cert to CAS, apply CAS then report as CAS covered to the Gov't about the Gov't.
