  1. My agency has been tasked with transferring a CPFF LOE Term contract from another department. The contract was set up with a base and 9 option periods each with a level of effort and ceiling for a one year period of performance. I have a question concerning whether a restructuring of the future unexercised option periods would be allowed under a bi lateral modification or if adding options would trigger CICA. The rationale for considering such a change is that doing so would allow us to only exercise the amount of effort needed as we add work packages to the contract. In a way, making the cont
  2. I noticed in the new (interim) rule on contractor sick leave the following: (1) Contracting officers shall include the clause in bilateral modifications extending the contract when such modifications are individually or cumulatively longer than six months. (2) In accordance with FAR 1.108(d)(3), contracting officers are strongly encouraged to include the clause in existing indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contracts, if the remaining ordering period extends at least six months and the amount of remaining work or number of orders expected is substantial. I read the 1.108(d)
  3. FYI, a recently published (redacted) ASBCA decision sustains a contractor's appeal of a COFD related to changes in cost accounting practice. The DACO "abused her discretion" by failing to strictly follow FAR 30.602, specifically the mandatory consideration as to whether the cost impact from the contractor's changes to cost accounting practices was material in amount.

  4. My company is currently bidding a large contract. With two weeks prior to proposals due, the Contracting Office changed the NAICS code. Although, the set-aside remains the same, the NAICS code size standard changed from 1500 people to $25 Million, which takes us from a small business, to a large business. Needless to say, this causes much consternation due to the fact that we were swiftly removed from the competition. First and foremost, is this possible? Secondly, if it is, can I submit a claim to recoup expenses? I have a short fuse on this so please respond with your input shortly. Muc
  5. She is at it again!!! I have a change order negotiation scheduled in a couple of weeks to negotiate a change order to a FFP, SDVOSB set-aside, construction contract. My contracting officer is trying to dictate that I not bring anyone else to the negotiation including subcontractor representatives (even though they represent a majority of the scope of the change) and key project managers that have first-hand knowledge of the site conditions. I am confident that this move is an attempt to isolate, outnumber, and overwhelm me (they plan to have 6 people present including a SME and JAG rep.) a
