Unidentified supplier in certified cost or pricing data in Contract Award Process Posted 2 hours ago · Report reply I tend to agree with Neil Roberts on this one. The government wants to negotiate a sole-source FFP prime contract. As part of its proposal, the prime has submitted a proposed price for a subcontractor. The prime determined the price to be fair and reasonable based on obtaining adequate competition. The prime has provided the source evaluation and selection notes to the government as part of its cost or pricing data. The government is concerned that the source evaluation or selection notes are not robust. In particular, the apparent winning subcontractor is not identified by name. The issue is not compliance with TINA as the prime has obtained adequate price competition (or asserts that it has done so). The issue is whether or not the proposed price for the subK is fair and reasonable. This is a matter for negotiation. Perhaps start by saying that you will accept the low bid rather than the one the prime has chosen to support its price (assuming the chosen subK is other than lowest price). See what the prime does in response. As Neil Roberts noted, the government will have post-award audit rights to see whether or not the proposal was defectively priced because the prime didn't include all cost or pricing information. I agree that the government should use those rights. In the meantime, negotiate hard using the lack of information as the basis for mitigating the government's risks.
