Report Fixed Price Services Extending Beyond PoP in Contract Administration Posted June 10, 2016 8 hours ago, joel hoffman said: It is always interesting and a bit unnerving to me when someone indicates something like "the CO that issued and awarded this contracted is no longer affiliated with this Government organization, so their intent cannot be determined.". I worked construction contract claims and requests for equitable adjustment for many years. In doing so, when I needed to learn something from them, I tracked down and communicated with the former official(s).. I called and/or wrote and/or travelled to meet with them, depending upon the circumstances. So, I don't believe at face value, such statements as quoted above. Its nothing personal, 490. If you were told that, I don't believe it. Joel, The CO is no longer affiliated this organization, but we could probably track them down if necessary. The decision was the expected one, and one that I feel is correct given the circumstances. While never working construction contracts, my experience with claims and REAs have always been after the PoP. It may be different under construction contracts if it is a multi-year project. Pursuing any and all measures in those case makes sense. Since this work continued on another contract, and there is new work in the hopper that could go to another contractor, we do not want to ask "Mom" when "Dad" already said no. Additionally, we do not feel wronged by the decision, rocking the boat would not be fruitful or beneficial.
