I was able to do this because I was able to keep myself in FAR Part 13, simplified acquisition procedures that allow for non-priced orders. Some contract agents and/or their political experts would say that FAR 16.603, Letters Contracts and/or DFARS sub-part 217.74, undefined contractual actions, apply to non-price orders, but I contradict. (a) include in the management plan consolidated and defined contractual measures (UCA), necessary in accordance with item 217.7405, the measures envisaged and taken to ensure that non-price modification contracts are defined in accordance with this subsection; and if the change orders are not completed, they need two documents: the change mandate and an endorsement that reflects the resulting fair adjustment in the terms of the contract. 1. Contract agents negotiate appropriate adjustments resulting from modification contracts as soon as possible. I changed within USACE to be in 1997 head of the contract administration division in the Chemical Weapons Demilitarization Directorate of a division-level organization. Our organization was responsible for the planning and design phase of chemical weapons disposal system contracts at seven U.S. chemical weapons depots and one in Russia. Our Contracting Officer (KO) has extensive experience in the entire construction contract. It has made it clear that it will not support the issuance of non-price changes.
This lasted until the first large ECP was published for design revisions on the first site of the demil plant, followed on two other sites with almost the same design for the facilities. This first ECP design revision contained about 1000 pages of revised drawings and massive specification modifications – which, of course, also influenced the calendars… The KNOCKOUT soon learned that modification contracts had to be passed and often passed in order to avoid significant effects and delays in the program. I often sneered at his naïve political decree. (a) orders for supplies or services that do not otherwise change the terms of a contract or agreement (for example. B contracts for supplies under indeterminate supply contracts); Or answer: it`s a question of poor execution on the part of the agency cited, no problem with politics.
