  1. Hello all, I am administering a contract that has a modification that should have not been awarded. The contract was misunderstood and the mod awarded when it shouldn't have. There are no funds associated with it, just time extension. Wondering how to go about creating a new mod to say the previous one is null and void?
  2. I'm sure there is a very easy explanation to this but I'm starting to wonder why SPS/PD2 even exists (I know PD2 is being replaced soon and this applies to any future contract writing software too). It was made a long time ago (early 90's I think?) and perhaps these days its more efficient to have the contractors actually write the contracts. In short, it seems the Government should be able to efficiently motivate each awardee to write the contract and any modifications for the Government and just have KOs review them thus eliminating our need for our own contract writing software system
  3. Does the Fiscal Year of the PIIN Matter? A BPA was awarded in September with a FY15 PIIN, but performance starts Oct 01 (FY16). I was told that I should have a FY16 PIIN; however the FY16 PIIN is not available. Other suggestion was to start the contract in FY15 so there wouldn't be questions/problems about my PIIN and POP not matching. ***This was a follow on BPA competed. It was awarded/signed by the Gov't prior to the start date so the vendor could be prepared to perform - base access, etc.***** Is there something I am missing? It seems like the issue of the concern is with September awards
  4. Question: If I award an open market commercial BPA (between $150K - $4M) under FAR Part 12 and 13, NOT FAR 15, that was advertised on FBO.gov for fair opportunity public response, am I required to post an award synopsis/announcement for my BPA award? Thoughts: FAR Part 13.303 BPAs and FAR 12.6 do not state that a post award synopsis are required, and FAR 13.106-3© states that contract awards under SAT need only to provide results when requested or as FAR 5.301 is applicable. According to FAR 5.301, the contract award needs to be announced on GFE when the 1) contract award is over $25K and
  5. I work for the Department of Veterans Affairs currently but have worked at other various federal agencies, both DoD and Civilian, I am aware of, and have done, congressional notifications over $X.0M ($10.0M?) but I can only find reference of this type of notification for cancellations of multiyear over $12.5 (17.1) and release of information congress (5.4). I also did a search in the VAAR (nothing) and DFARS (for a sanity check only). Where is it mandatory to provide a congressional notification of multi-million dollar awards? Thanks!!!
