  1. CFR 216.405-2 clearly states that the weighted guidelines method shall not be used to determine fee on CPAF contracts. If not the weighted guidelines, then how do CO's determine that a proposed fee on a CPAF contract is reasonable? Thank you!
  2. I am working a Firm Fixed Price buy for a sole source item that has been determined commercial of a type. Because of obsolescence the part has to be redesigned (last bought in the 90's). The redesign effort involves NRE costs that are beyond the actual production costs and the contractor is only providing hours and a burdened rate for each labor category to support this NRE. I have backed into the numbers the best I can but my counter offer is less than half of the proposed price for NRE. The NRE total is for $850,000. Without more data I am at a loss. The contractor keeps claiming becaus
  3. Does Competition Exist if there is a single manufacturer of a product; but you receive quotes for the product from two or more distributors? I have gotten into some heated arguments about this issue. I don't consider buying from multiple distributors a competitive purchase since there is only a single manufacturer. I would appreciate hearing your view.
  4. Good afternoon, Does anyone have a reference to the COFC case that determined that prior actual costs incurred on prior buys are required under TINA? I know it exists but I can not find it. I currently have a Major defense contractor refusing to submit actuals on extremely large procurement and I would like to send them the case. V/r Jake
  5. Good morning and happy holidays WIFCON! I’ve been reading these forums/blogs since I started in Federal contracting as a Copper Cap (just over two years now) and have gained a ton of valuable knowledge and viewpoints, this really is an amazing resource for contracting knowledge. Over the past year I’ve started working large dollar service contracts and have found myself in a position where I’ve had to develop IDIQ pricing tables for RFPs twice now. I’ve gone through the CPRG and found it useful but not in the way I’m looking for, it's more what to do what the numbers once y
  6. The Contract requires to "Quote a price per hour for providing additional services when ordered that are in addition to the services specified herein for the basic services." Should they be the same as a price per an hour for basic services or should they include an overtime?
  7. Newish CO here. I am pre-award with an IDIQ that will have a BOM for a bunch of contractor-provisioned IT COTS hardware (maybe 100 different items, up to $80K unit price). These IT materials are from a dynamic market. Prices, models, features all change quickly. I am being asked by management to get 5-year pricing at the unit level for everything, and incorporate that pricing into the IDIQ. To me, this is a bad idea and a waste of time. My question to you all is - am I right in my assessment? Am I missing something? I see nothing in FAR 16.5 requiring any pricing of any
  8. I have an Non-Appropriated Purchasing Agreement (NPA) for Title II Services with the following Period of Performance: Option Year 2: 20 July 2015 through 19 July 2016 Option Year 3: 20 July 2016 through 19 July 2017 There will be a delivery order awarded against the NPA within the next few weeks, so we will be using the option year 2 pricing. The contractor is trying to incorporated "escalation pricing" in his proposal so when the option is exercised on the NPA (next month), the pricing for the order will "automatically" go into affect the same day. The period of perfor
  9. Just stopping by to share an interesting read (via Politico) regarding the current pricing environment in the Department of Defense. Enjoy and looking forward to the discussion! http://www.politico.com/story/2016/04/defense-pentagon-spending-assad-221776
  10. Is there such a thing?! We are a small business subcontractor responding to an RFP with a large business prime. We previously provided a T&M proposal, as requested. We just received a revised RFP to now price TIME & MATERIAL / Incentive Fee labor rates, which requests a T&M rate with a base fee and another T&M rate to include an incentive fee. I have never heard of this contract type. Has anyone ever encountered this? Is there information out there? My google searches have not returned any results. Thank you for your time!
  11. Below is a scenario- just soliciting opinions here. Question: You have a prime IDIQ contract to Company XYZ. (T&M). (Established LCATs and Pricing) They have a Task Order doing some services scope of work They have a need to onboard small businesses to meet their subcontracting goal over the next 24 months. You want to add a small business. Their rates for all LCATs are BELOW your contract pricing. Can you claim their prices are fair and reasonable since they are below the competed contract LCAT price levels?
  12. I am competing a requirement amongst GSA IT Schedul 70 contract holders. The requirement is combination of Firm Fixed Price and Labor Hour. In discussions with one of the other Contracting Officers here, he mentioned to me that I would be required to get subcontractor proposals in order to determine the reasonableness of the Prime Vendor's rates (i.e. determining the prime's profit, etc.). This is not something that I have done before, nor in my time working in private industry have I submitted subcontractor proposals with my GSA quote. I would consider doing this if it were a sole sou
  13. Invoicing CP Subcontract - CPIF task order. Standard process used to build cost plus rate (1 salaried individual, 1 hourly individual on contract) cost base calculated for both types of individuals. (salary, calculated to hourly rate based on 2080 hours for the year) or (hourly rate accordingly), OH&G&A applied (accordingly)= resultant rate, This build up was provided at bid in sanitized version to prime and un-sanitized version to govt. (approved and awarded) Client invoiced for number of hours X Resultant rate.. in a standard month, (160 hours), Salaried ind
  14. We are a subcontractor. The ultimate Government client has "tripwire" rates, where if a contractor rate in a certain category is over a certain rate, it requires SES-level approval for funding. An engineer must not cost more than $130/hr for example. The prime contract is CPFF, and our subcontract is CPFF. This makes it strange because they basically take CPFF rates and roll them up like a T&M rate and compare them against this tripwire. Is there any reason we have to bid the same fee percentage on each person? We have one expensive engineer that is close to the tripwire rate. Could
