  1. The exception to what Retreadfed quoted would be if the contract contained FAR 52.233-1, Disputes, with Alternate I.
  2. Yes, what about it? I don't know about the entire document, but I do think some parts are (e.g., Enclosure 4 (Standardization in the Acquisition Process), Enclosure 12 (DIDs), and Enclosure 14 (Qualification)). FAR 11.102 refers to the guidance in the Manual when prescribing a policy for selecting requirements documents, so I think that is a matter related to contracts.
  3. If they want to play that game, then tell them you consider the failure to notify law enforcement a lack of good faith. See FAR 52.245-1(h)(1)(ii).
  4. Did they report the matter to law enforcement?
  5. The Court references the procedural requirements of the Administrative Procedures Act (5 U.S.C. § 552) in its discussion. However, I don't see how that's relevant. 5 U.S.C. § 553(a)(2) exempts matters relating to contracts from the APA's rule making requirements. That's why we have 41 U.S.C. 1707 (to require publication of procurement rules).
  6. For what purpose are you trying to categorize an exchange of information in a FAR subpart 8.4 procurement?
  7. I should have said a FAR deviation. FAR 52.204-2 requires compliance with the NISPOM. Having said that, I don't think it would have been a deviation to remove the solicitation provision requiring facility clearance at the time of proposal submission.
  8. The article gives the example of rules for a flock of birds:
  9. I'm surprised the Air Force fought this. Why didn't they just process an individual deviation from the DFARS as a corrective action?
  10. @Vern Edwards According to this article: "Complex Adaptive Systems are systems that use simple rules to generate complex behaviours." What are the simple rules used by the Federal Acquisition System?
  11. In addition breach damages and bad CPARS, if you were T4Dd then you'd have to mark "has" at FAR 52.209-5(a)(1)(ii) for the next three years.
  12. The CDRL should be identified in a line item. Do you have a DD 250 or something equivalent showing the Government accepted what was provided under that line item?
