  1. What business advantage will these fond remembrances give the contractor?
  2. On a related topic, I'd like readers' opinions on the value of responding to pre-RFP notices. I understand the value of responding to pre-RFP notices where the government asks for recommendations on products or methodologies. But my colleagues state that all smart government contractors respond to any RFIs or sources sought (even responding as a large business to a pre-RFP Rule of Two sources sought notice.) Even if the company has no position at an agency and does not have particularly strong qualifications for the work. For the following reasons: 1 RFI responses are like valentines. The
  3. That is very helpful thank you. All these cases where trouble was caused by inclusion of a "wrong" CAGE code - I am still suprised that there are so many awards with no CAGE code on the form. I guess sometimes the CO enters it?
  4. I saw the acq,osd.mil instructions. There is out of date stuff up there, though. I am perplexed that I see such a large number of completed 1449s with the DUNS, not the cage code, in that block. It is a mystery.
  5. Having flipped through a bunch of awards, I see that before aroudn 2015 there was in fact a space for DUNS at the bottom of block 17, definitely implying that DUNS doesn't go in either of the "code" boxes. But that line is gone now, and a good number of the awards I examined had the DUNS number in the first block. More than half of the awards had neither block filled out, though.
  6. HI Retread! Thanks so so much for this, can you give me a cite?
  7. So in the picture above, where does DUNS go and where does CAGE code go.
  8. What goes in the little box labeled "code" - DUNS or Cage Code?
  9. It's confusing, because the limitations clauses etc are going to apply if it is awarded to an SDVOSB right? It will in fact be a setaside if an SDVOSB is awarded.
  10. Should the 1449, block 10, on an RFP check the box for "unrestricted" or "setaside," when the evaluation is going to be a VA tiered evaluation, with the tiers being SDVOSB, VOSB, small (HUBzone preference), then finally large? The award will be set aside, subject to limitations on subcontracting etc., if any firm in the first three categories ends up winning, right?
  11. The GSA contract incorporates a WD and includes the clauses. The task order doesn't, though.
  12. Is this true? On a GSA schedule, Contractor has identified an LCAT as covered by SCA LCAT at the contract level. Call the LCAT “Clerk 2.” Contractor gets a task order on the GSA schedule. There is no wage determination attached to the task order, and the task order does not in any way indicate it is covered by SCA. Contractor proposes and invoices a staff member as Clerk 2 on the task order. Contractor does not have to pay that person the SCA wage and benefits, as the SCA determination applies only at the task order level.
  13. A commercial plan would definitely include the small business SINs and every other contract as well. What this contractor wants to do is exclude every contract for which it is technically large from the base for the subcontracting goals. That requires an individual plan. Yes, the CO has a lot of discretion in establishing the base and the goals. The question is, if the contractor says it will subcontract "x" percent of its total revenues, what is it legally obligated to report as total revenues in eSRS. Or, if contractor says it will provide "x" percent of subcontracted dollars to small b
  14. yes, 52.219-9 is included in the GSA schedule contract. On a GSA contract, a contractor may be both small and large, depending on the NAICS for the SINs. A contractor is large or small at the contract level depending on the SIN assigned on award. If a contractor has sales in a large SIN, they will be assigned large at the contract level. Issues: a. they have to state a goal for percentage of total revenue they will subcontract. are they measured on that goal? if so, is it the percentage of all contract revenue or only revenue in SINs where they are large? Regs seem to say contractor must
