Good morning,

I have a contractor making a unilateral DS change. They have informed me that this DS change will have a cost impact to my contract, but in the aggregate (as stated in 30.603-2) there will be no cost impact overall to the government. Obvioulsy I am asking my contractor prove to me that the aggreagate is in fact $0, but here is my question. What if my customer doesn't have the additional funding to shell out to the contractor for a DS change? I understand the FAR focuses on the government as a whole in its text, but that is not the way funding works in reality. Every agency and every component within an agency (at least at mine) has their own budgets and own funding issues. How can one be expected to pay for an impact like this one and carry the finanical burden they may or may not be able to pay for? What are my options here and is there anything else I need to be considering? Thank you in advance for your help.

What does the cognizant ACO say? It is my understanding that that individual (called the "CFAO"), and not the PCO, has the authority to speak for the government (though I think the regs say the ACO needs to coordinate with affected PCOs). See 30.604 and 42.302(a)(11).

Hope this helps
