We've been having an internal debate about (1) whether it is possible to increase the maximum value of a FFP contract using an in scope increase and (2) whether one is even necessary. Interested to hear your thoughts. Basically, demand was greater than anticipated and we've hit the contract max early. Sort of. The kicker here is that this IDIQ contract (we'll call it Contract1) is part of a program where another contractor (Contract2) is authorized to order from Contract1 and gets government's negotiated pricing and delivery. The Contract2 contractor then stocks the item at their cost and waits for a gov't demand for it. When a government demand materializes, Contract2 contractor is paid, but not before. So, technically, the gov't hasn't spent a dime under Contract1, but the Contract2 contractor has ordered sufficient material from Contract1 that the amount spent would reach the maximum on Contract1. No need to change contract duration or any other Ts & Cs. This is solely about spend and whether there is a need to secure additional money under these conditions. Thoughts? TIA
