Questions regarding potential award under SeaPort contract

Recommended Posts

A Navy agency wants to give us a project around $750K. Our prime has a SeaPort contract. Within the SeaPort contract the prime was issued a broad Task Order (TO). Within that TO’s scope the prime was issued a specific Delivery Order (DO). Then the prime issued us a CPFF Purchase Order (PO). The TO and the DO expire in July 2015. All parties agree on the LOE ($750K) and that that the PO work will take 12 months (from Oct 2014 to Oct 2015) and thus exceeds the period of performance of the TO/DO (again, July 2015). Questions:

  1. Is it necessary that the prime requests an extension in the period of performance of the TO and/or of the DO (which one or both?)?
  2. What is the preferred way to handle the situation on our end?
  3. What is the likelihood that the CO will/will-not grant an extension considering that the Navy will incur more cost if they have to split the SOW into two parts, recomplete, etc. and conversely there is no additional cost if a time extension was granted?

"A Navy agency wants to give us a project around $750K. Our prime has a SeaPort contract."

I am unclear on the logical connection between these two sentences. If a Navy agency awards to your company a project, wouldn't that be, by definition, a prime contract and not a TO/DO under another prime's contract?

Sorry I wasn't clear, it is a company who currently has a prime contract with the Navy who wants our services, so they can complete a project for the Navy. So we would be a subcontractor.

Does that clarify?

SLK,

Have you reviewed Vern Edwards' June 22, 2009 blog on ID/IQ dates? It's available on this website under "Vern Edwards' Blog".

What I suspect he really means is that the Navy wants to use the prime as a front for getting to the sub through Seaport.

Vern,

Somebody else might say you are being cynical. Howeer, I know that cynicism is often confused for real-world experience.
