  1. Colleagues: My issue is: Whether an agency may issue a letter, and subsequently require an employee to pay an unauthorized commitment it will not ratify. My initially thought is no. I am unaware of any authority where an agency can require an employee personally pay for an unauthorized commitment for which the agency will not ratify. Of course, the contractor could pursue payment for the employee who entered into the unauthorized commitment, but I do not see how an agency can require (or really even issue a letter to) an employee to pay. Any insight would be appreciated. Ba
  2. Does anyone have a link to a good Contract Administration SOP, guide, or plan? Thanks!
  3. I am new to this forum and first time posting, so I will do my best! Prime Contract is an IDIQ with DO's consisting of Testing NRE Costs, hardware, drawings/specs, software and associated data deliverables. All DO's are FFP. Although the hardware has not been previously produced in this form, it is being classified as NDI. All subcomponents were commercial items at their base, but they are being enhanced with military upgrades for this effort. The contract requires that a number of units be delivered to undergo verification testing, and upon passing production units will be delive
  4. I have a situation with a Fixed Price Construction Contract for the renovation of male and female bathroom/gang showers where an unforeseen condition has been discovered. I have received funding for this modification, however the contractor has discovered the same condition in another bathroom/gang shower for which there is not sufficient funding for this additional work. It has been suggested to wait and do an upward obligation next FY to obtain project year dollars. My question, is this considered funding incrimination since the unforeseen conditions were discovered in the same FY a
  5. I have a situation with a recently awarded multiple award contract. This award was made on the basis of lowest price, technically acceptable and there were a few technically acceptable offerors that did not receive the award due to price. Three days after the awards were fully executed, one of the awardees stated that they could not do business with our agency because a few of their clients who were adverse to agency would not sign a waiver for them to work with the Agency. In the solicitation, there are disclosure requirements for the offerors regarding organizational conflict
  6. Hello Wifcon Forum Members, I've recently began reviewing a physically completed T&M/LH for closeout purposes. This particular T&M/LH contract has the following specifications under the heading "Maximum Hours and Cost" for the following two labor categories: Sr. Software Engineer - 656 hours at $/hour Program Manager - 18 Hours at $/hour A review of the contract invoices shows the following amount of Labor Hours billed/charged during the course of the contract: Sr. Software Engineer - 381 hours Program Manager - 38 hours As you can see, the SSE w
  7. Good morning Acquisition Professionals, Our command has a contract (multiple award construction contract) that is beyond its ordering period (April 2015 end of ordering period). The contract capacity was $99M and $15M was still available when the ordering period ended. A task order under this contract is still active until Oct 2016. We have an unforeseen condition that was estimated at $28M. The questions are: Is it possible to increase the capacity of the contract whose ordering period ended? If possible, do we need to extend the ordering period? Are these considered bridge
  8. Here's my dilemma. My COR has been approving invoices without withholding because he claims the Contractor was doing successful in his progress. We are now at the end of the contract and he has identified several deficiencies that he believes the contractor owes us money. He wants to withhold further payments from the contractor greater than the 10% retainage. So in short, we have ~$300K left on the contract and he doesn't want to pay them because he overpaid them in other past payments. While I know FAR Part 33 outlines how the Government can issue a claim, is there anywhere tha
  9. Is it acceptable to have an Award Fee Period for 3 years and make interim assessments (including partial payments) with the final determination made at the end of the three year period?
  10. We just bought a company that was awarded an IDIQ contract in one of the multiple technical categories in the small business category. The award was for a 2 year base with 3 one year options. The previous owner did not pay one of his sub-contractors. We are in negotiations with the sub-contractor for a payment plan and will use a waiver of liens to solidify the payment plan. The waiver includes liens against the Government. The KO issued a notice not to exercise the next option year. KO's reasoning is financial instability. What options does a contractor have to challenge the non-exercise
