I am not sure how anyone could think that I am confusing funding with pricing. Forgive me if I did not clearly state my thoughts. This is a funding question. The IDIQ and all options were priced and evaluated during the original award process. The guaranteed minimum was satisfied with the issuance of the first order. This is a question on whether FAR 17.207(f) applies to funding for IDIQs with Options at the TO/DO level. I am told that if the minimum guaranteed is met during the base year via a TO/DO, you can exercise an Option without an actual obligation because exercising the option would not require the government to buy anything, as this only preserves the Option Period. And that you would need funds only to cover the obligation made on the subsequent TO/Dos. I hope that I am a bit clearer!
