  1. I agree, the contract was researched and everyone was clear that the contract did not prohibit its use. I've never came a across this before and wanted to make sure i wasnt missing anything.
  2. Thanks this is helpful. Was this a case you were familiar with? if not how were able to find this case. I tried searching several times but couldn't find anything.
  3. Thats correct. The consultant is being proposed as key personnel on the contract and is not an employee of the contractor. Is this possible?
  4. I'm faced with an issue of a contractor proposing a consultant as Key Personnel on a firm fixed price service contract. The HHSAR (352.237-75)doesn't seem to outright prohibit it but i wanted to see if anyone has come across something like this before.
  5. So my organization is currently faced with the issue of having annual funding to conduct non-severable activity (biomedical R&D). With funding lacking to obligate an entire contract amount up front I was wondering if the statement of work for the requirement was written in phases (recruitment, exam, follow-up) and the phases are listed as options could each phase be fully funded when exercised. Lets assume the phases were recruitment - 6 months, exam - 22 months, follow up - 8 months.
  6. I recently received a question on whether contractors can assist the government in receiving/accepting invoices for the government. I know there are definitely conflict of interest implications with this. But is there anything else out there? Has anyone seen this done before?
  7. I have access to the class J&A., but it makes no mention of an expiration date or the period of performance exceeding March of 2021. I was wondering if anyone has heard anything else about that i might not be considering. Its my understanding that the class J&A is effective until removed by the HCA. As for the period of performance my understanding is that contracts can be awarded at any time while the class J&A is effective for a period not too exceed 12 months.
  8. As many of you may know, HHS issued a class J&A back in March 2020 covering COVID-19 requirements. According to the class J&A the period of performance of the awards are not to exceed 12 months. Does anyone know if there's an expiration date to the class J&A? and can the period of performance of the awarded contracts exceed March of 2021 (1 year after the class J&A was issued)?
  9. I have a firm fixed price purchase order for maintenance services on scientific equipment. If the equipment is decommissioned prior to the end of the purchase order for the maintenance agreement, can the purchase order be cancelled since the equipment no longer exists or does this need to be processed as a termination?
  10. Curious to get thoughts on the following: A few years ago I was working on the award of an R&D contract (disease research) in which the offeror proposed laptops in their proposal as well as cost for building rental and servers. I struggle with including this as direct cost to the contract as it will not be solely used during the performance of the contract. I would like to know the thoughts of others. Should the listed cost be covered in their indirects?? There are also situations where offerors propose budget analyst as staff on the contract. Where are your thoughts?
  11. So I have a firm fixed price severable contract for IT help desk support. With the contract, two positions are named as Key Personnel per the clause and are also considered essential to the contract. During contract performance, one of the key personnel positions was vacant for 2 months. During this time period, performance on the contract suffered and deliverables were not met. The government does not want to terminate the contract but wonders if we can suspend payment for the Key Personnel position during the 2 months it was vacant? Is this possible given the fact that it is a fixed price co
  12. That is the stance I'm currently taking. Extending the POP with mutual agreement. I want to make sure that there are no limitations on the amount of time needed.
  13. Thank you. The government is does not intend on terminating the contract as we have a vested interested in the outcome. The contractor will need more time to complete.
  14. The contractors performing on the contract. There's been some excusable delays that led to the request. My question is solely around the amount of time a contract can be extended for. Just wondering if there was anything I may have missed.
