    My question is can the hours that were charged for the proposal being updated because of the FPRA be accepted?


    Answer

    The question does not indicate the value and we assume this is a sole source situation.
     
    Contractors are required to submit accurate, current, and complete data as of the date of conclusion of negotiations.  Thus a contractor must give the most up-to-date information it has available.  It is entitle to recover those costs.  The question is what are the contractor's normal (disclosure statement - accounting system) practices for charging this type of cost.  It must follow those practices.  If it routinely charges these type of costs direct, we will pay as a direct charge.  If it routinely charges as overhead, that is how it should be charged on this effort.
