The FAR states that a suspension of work may be issued by the contracting officer. Can this be delegated to a COR? Why or why not? If not, what about in a situation that involves health or safety? (e.g. actions of contractor are putting the life or health of an employee in danger). FAR 1.602-2(d)(5) says that the COR "has no authority to make any commitments or changes that affect price, quality, quantity, delivery, or other terms and conditions of the contract nor in any way direct the contractor or its subcontractors to operate in conflict with the contract terms and conditions" So can the CO delegate anything to a COR that doesn't affect "price, quality, quantity, delivery, or other terms and conditions of the contract"? Not sure if a suspension of work order would qualify as affecting the delivery or some other term of the contract. Thanks
