  1. Thank you. We decided that the clause would be applicable, but not until we "invoiced" since Progress Payments are a financing tool. To comply, we reported zeros in SAM. I appreciate the responses.
  2. Thank you here_2_help, it confirms my understanding of the progress payments and how I view the total invoiced amount being zero. Maybe someone else knows more about the service reporting to see if the reporting is required when we are delivering something. We have other contracts that are services with a few materials that we report, but this task order is nothing at all like our "services" orders, this is delivering a complete system(s) built with COTS (if that matters).
  3. A task order awarded in 2016 has just now hit our Service Contract Reporting list in SAM. However, this is a FPIF task order and we are working on "progress payments" not "invoices" as we are delivering a system, with a ETA of 2021 for the DD250. I am a bit confused as to why we are now being asked to report on this task order, how its applicable since we aren't providing "services" and what amount I would use for "total invoiced" when we are using progress payments. Any advice? When I posed the question to our CO office, they referred me to the technical POC.
  4. I am not sure if this helps with the facts, and to be quite honest I feel I must be missing something major. Would Product Support be something totally different than the Service Agreements - even though neither have a set definition? Have I biased myself into thinking they are related? The language in the CDRL: "Service agreements for all hardware and software products delivered under this contract end no sooner than two calendar years after Final DD250." Language regarding product support in PWS: "The Contractor shall ensure all Product Support tasks are completed for th
  5. Hi, It seems we have found ourselves in a situation where a CDRL is calling out an additional requirement that the Government wants but it is not stated in the PWS. Specifically, a longer duration of service agreements. The PWS does not include a specific requirement for "service agreements" only for "product support", which for Product Support has an end date stated through final DD250 in the PWS. The CDRL calls out "service agreements" with an additional 2 years after final DD250. There is no stated order of precedence, and both documents are called out as being incorporated into th
  6. Postaward - Unfortunately all CLIN types were funded with 1 ACRN, I have inquired if we could go back and have separate ACRNS for each CLIN but was told by our former ACO it was too much work and could cause more confusion at this point (we are over a year into the program). We aren't shipping and invoicing in the most technical sense, we invoice for contractor use facilities (FFP) while requesting progress payments (cost based) for the build we are doing, which isn't to be delivered for a couple of more years. However, the facilities invoice was liquidated (payment withheld) by DFAS due to
  7. I guess I am hoping that if I can have the PCO put clear language in the contract, then that will tell the ACO how to enter it into the system, which should tell DFAS how to pay it. A wish and a prayer I suppose.
  8. ji20874 - Thank you for the language! Thanks to everyone for weighing in, I do appreciate it. I am going to see if the PCO could agree to the language offered by ji20874 and let him know it has also passed the Deviation Patrol check!
  9. Thanks for the responses, I am going with the first Q, here_2_help asked and I was wondering if anyone could weigh in on the language that I would like to propose to our PCO to add. I do not know if its allowed (legal?) and I do not want to ask the PCO to do something that may not be allowed: "SECTION G - CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION/PAYMENT DATA: The following have been modified: PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS DFARS PGI 204.7108 DFAS Special Payment Instructions: The Contracting Officer has determined that none of the standard payment instructions identified in paragraphs (d)(1) thro
  10. Hi! I have a situation where it seems DFAS/ACO/PCO/Contractor have a different expectation of how progress payments should work on this program. I am looking for guidance that could help everyone have the same understanding, or to weave the pieces together. I am the Contractor, small business, awarded a Task Order (which we all refer to as a "contract") under a GSA GWAC, primarily for services and material (aka not Construction). The total value to include all options is $80M. There are multiple CLIN types, mostly FPIF (with FFP for leased space and Cost for travel/materials). There are n
