  1. We issued numerous stop work orders on FFP service contracts that require the contractor to perform work onsite. The stop work orders we issued require that contractors cease incurring costs related to the contract.The contracts provide "bodies" in support of specific functions within the agency. We issued stop work orders to these contracts because there are no government personnel to provide oversight for the contracted activities, and because there is no benefit derived from their services during the shutdown. I'm trying to understand how to settle up with our contractors to make them whole once the shutdown has ended and we've received our appropriation, but I don't want to be taken for a ride. How do we deal with stopped FFP contracts in this scenario? Should we expect the contractor to layoff the personnel provided by their contract or do they keep those persons in suspended animation, continue to pay them and then bill us for that time through a request for equitable adjustment? Or Do we simply "pay the man" for time they couldn't work because the contract is a FFP contract and also entertain their request for an equitable adjustment to the contract's schedule and/or (doubtfully) for the contractors' costs? Finally, what if the contract did not include 52.242-15 Stop Work Order? Is the contractor still bound by its terms under the Christian doctrine, or must the contractor submit a claim under 52.242-17 Government Delay of Work because in the absence of 52.242-15, the stop work order was not expressly or impliedly authorized by the contract? Which leads to yet another question, what if the contract included neither 52.242-15 or 52.242-17? I will recap the questions I asked in this topic: How do we deal with stopped FFP contracts in this scenario? Should we expect the contractor to layoff the personnel provided by their contract? Should we expect the contractor to keep their contractor employees in suspended animation, continue to pay them and then bill us for that time through a request for equitable adjustment? Do we simply "pay the man" for time they couldn't work because the contract is a FFP contract and also entertain their request for an equitable adjustment? Can we issue a stop work order if the contract did not include 52.242-15 Stop Work Order What if the contract included neither 52.242-15 or 52.242-17? Is there any way to edit the topic title?
