    What is meant by this statement? Can the Government issue a bilateral modification and adjust the option period of performance or should the requirement be recompeted? The sentence before this sentence stated : "The option, however, would become null and void if the Government fails to exercise it as written and on time." A little confused on the option periods. If the option period is null and void, can a Contracting Officer issue a bilateral modification to legally change the period of performance.


    Answer

    I see that there are three questions/inquiries being asked.
      (a) What is meant by this statement?
      (b) A little confused on the option periods. If the option period is null and void, can a Contracting Officer
      issue a bilateral modification to legally change the period of performance.
      (c) I understand the answer until the last sentence.
     The statement reads: The Government would have to establish a new option if they so desire.
     
    The bottom line response is: Please consult your legal for advice and guidance.
