FFP Competitive award which contains a few CPFF CLINs
Posted 15 February 2012 - 01:54 PM
Issue: Someone had suggested the possiblity of including a plug number in the RFP for each CPFF CLIN. The target cost would be the program office estimate with a fixed fee dollar amount (some amount that would be less than 10% of the estimated cost due to statuatory requirements). I like the simplicity of this approach as it would save the offerors the B&P costs associated with trying to provide support for a bid for a requirement that is not well defined, however, i am concerned that this approach does not allow for consideration of each individual offeror's unique approach and technical solution. Also, I don't quite comprehend that the scope of work can be well enough defined for a program office estimate, yet, not enough for potential offerors' to bid.
Question: Has anyone seen an RFP with a plug number for a CPFF CLIN? Does anyone have any other thoughts or legal/contracting considerations that I should bring forth to the team as we discuss and further define the acqusition strategy?
Thanks for your time!

If the undefined effort being considered for a cost type CLIN is minor in terms of labor, no problem. If, however, it involves significant effort. it will need careful thought. Can you talk to your estimator to gain an understanding of his basis of estimate?
