  1. We have a CR contract awarded in 2012 to a not-for-profit small business organization for R&D. Now, in one of the option years, the contractor is claiming that they can do a portion of the work for less if they hire a subcontractor to do that portion of the work. They are trying to charge the government for the audit of a potential subcontractor to do this work. The government did not 'request' or 'require' that the subcontractor be used--the contractor proposed it on their own. I can't find anywhere that addresses this directly (or indirectly on the facts presented--existing contract, subcontractor audit, etc). So my question is whether the government is/can be liable for the cost of auditing the potential subcontractor? The contract is subject to the HSSAR if that helps.
  2. I was wondering if a late checkout from a hotel is an allowable cost. We are a prime to USAID and one of our Subcontractors hired and sent a consultant to the field The consultant supported project activities in the morning, which were completed by noon. However, the flight that was booked for him did not leave from until 9:00 PM on, leaving him 8 hours to wait before needing to leave for the airport. As such, the consultant stayed in his hotel room and he was charged for half a day extra (as a late checkout fee) The subcontract claims that it’s in their policy to allow a day room or late check-out in circumstances where a consultant has more than 8 hours of wait time because of circumstances beyond his/her control. I have checked the FAR/FTR and AIDAR but see no reference to this cost being allowable or reasonable. Any thoughts? Thank you in advance!
