AE IDIQ - Pricing Proposal

Recommended Posts

First time working on a A/E IDIQ requirement.

1). What is the typical procedures once you receive a RFP/Proposal back from the Highest Ranked?

2). How do you determine if the prices offered based on the "List of Labor Rates" are fair and reasonable?

3). What is the Government's position/objective to price?

4). Do you submit to OIG for pre-award?

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Is this an established IDC or are you trying to establish a pool of A-E's?

What is the purpose of the pricing action? Are you trying to establish fixed rates for the A-E in the initial competition or is this specific pricing for a task order?

If for a task order, are you asking about evaluating an existing List of Labor Rates?

For instance, if you are negotiating pricing for a specific task order, then the most important first step is having a thorough understanding of the scope of the services to be rendered. You must also have an understanding of any statutory restrictions upon the pricing for preparation of plans and specifications, support tasks, etc.You must have a project budget to base the the scope of design upon.

If your agency has specific procedures for A-E contracting, you should follow those. The Corps of Engineers do a lot of A-E contracting. I can recommend reviewing their A-E contracting procedures in Engineer Pamphlet 715-1-7 Architect Engineer Contracting in USACE. Chapter 4 discusses the negotiation process. Appendix M is also helpful.

You specifically asked about how to determine if the prices offered based on the "List of Labor Rates" are fair and reasonable. Assuming that the rates are already fixed, you must be able to determine the scope of the design services to be performed. Do you have a team available that can do this?

Your explanation of the scenario is too vague to explain the process that would be applicable to your situation.

You can find EP 715-1-7 at http://140.194.76.12.../EP_715-1-7.pdf

Did you read the reference regarding evaluation of unit rates for an ID/IQ?
