Is a prime contractor required to retrieve and retain detailed travel receipts from subcontractors on a cost plus contract? If not specific in the contract does a subcontractor need to provide the detailed receipts to prove compliance with 31.205-46 and JTF, FTRs? In this scenario, this particular request comes from a prime request to start submitting travel documentation to assure compliance with 31.205-46. The subcontractor pushed back since it is a cost plus contract, the subcontractor does not believe it's a reasonable request to provide the actual cost which further reveals indirect rate, fee and other proprietary details. We could one day compete against them in the same market space. The subcontractor per the contract is required to provide a summary of travel costs with monthly invoicing and to have available original receipts etc. etc should they be requested. This language developed out of pushback to the prime who wasn't sure what they were really required to do on retainment, so they felt safe even though we explained we would not be in agreement to submit actuals that are revealing of indirect rates, fess, and other proprietary business details such as our own internal travel reimbursement policies an practices.
