Report GFE vs CFE - Associated Risks for Software Development? in Contract Administration Posted February 26 I don't think my message was clear. We are not purchased equipment on behalf of the Government, our Development team is being provided equipment from the Government that is lackluster in nature and the Government admits they have equipment issues and expect us to perform regardless. The program manager wants our corporate office to provide everyone on the team high end laptops to use, offline from the agency, to develop software to meet the objectives of the SOW demonstrating that we are willing to go above and beyond to get the job done. Issue is, the contract itself currently does not state this is authorized, only references GFE will be issued, but I'm wondering on if we can potentially recoop this cost we will incur as well as what other associated risk we have with this approach.
