So we have multiple new service contracts and option periods that started 1 Oct. We received certified funding documents covering the entire option period or base periods for these contracts on 1 October and awarded or exercised options at that time, fully funding the year. Recently, the customers came back, asking to have the obligated funds reduced down to the CR authority that they received, and to incrementally fund for the rest of the year as they receive more funding. We are unsure what happened in the decision process that these were certified when they weren't sure how much would be received. None of these contracts were awarded with the appropriate clauses or CLIN structure for incremental funding. My questions are: Is there anything stopping us from reducing the obligation to the CR amount after the fact? (besides the many hours of overtime I'll have to requests for my folks to complete such an undertaking). If not, would we need to work out the incremental funding (CLIN structure, clauses etc) on each contract before making the reduction, or could we complete it all in one action? Further: Is it possible this is an ADA violation on the person certifying the funds? I would think that the entire Wing/MAJCOM and possible, the AF would have to be over spent for there to be a true ADA violation, but am I wrong? Thanks in advance for any guidance you can lend!
