Is it okay to contract for full-time long-term support? I was raised in DoD contracting and now work for a civilian agency. I know that DoD 1102s have to deal with 100 times the regulations we do in the civilian agencies and sometimes- even 6 years out - I am still wrapped up in the policies I was raised on. That said, the other day I got a SOW that declared they needed 3 clerks 40 hours each week (for a program I’ve just inherited in a reorganization). I had a nice call with the COR and explained she was augmenting government staff and we would need to change the requirements for this reason. She responded that they have been handling it this way for more than 20 years, which I thought supported my case but I cannot find anything to support me, as they are not inherently governmental functions and aren’t treated as personal services. What am I missing?
I have recently taken over the duties as COR for a IT Service Contract. The contract is a T&M ID/IQ service contract in which T&M or FFP orders are placed in the form of task orders. There is no optional work within the task order and there is no mixed task order i.e. T&M Line Items with FFP Line Items. My question is that it has always been my experince that hours are billed in 1/4 hour increments. I have some invoices where the hours are billed fractionally: Therefore: 60 Minutes /100 =0.6 .60 of 1 Hour is 36 Minutes = $44.50 at $1.24 per Minute The contractor says by not-rounding the Government is saved money, in my opinion this is not reasonable. The additional manhours to track and then try to close this task order washout any savings by a "to the minute recording of time worked". Not to mention monthly invoice reviews. My question to the forum is: Is there anything that gives guidance regarding timekeeping recording? If so, please tell me provide the references.... Thank you in advance Steve
