  1. Is inaction an action?

    If a Federal agency does not act on an option period (one year) on a labor-hour ID/IQ task-order contract because the person responsible for initiating the exercise of the option year didn't, because she did not know she was responsible and, thus, she failed to act--did she act? Can an agency not exercise an option simply because no one thought to do so? As a follow-on, does anybody know of any bases for NOT running through the considerations of FAR 17.207 in exercising (or not) an option period, even if the CO knows she will not be exercising it? Doesn't the obligation to go through the checklist in 17.207 seem to indicate it should be gone through for each option to be exercised, even if the conclusion is to not exercise the option?
