is there a regulation or something that outlines our responsibility as a Government to be present when a contractor is in one of our facilities, or is it okay for them to be alone in our buildings without any Government employees.
The following response is based solely on the question and background information provided. As we do not have all the facts particular to your situation, we highly recommend you consult, as applicable, your contracting officer and/or Legal Office for further guidance.
Open full Question Details
We found no specific regulatory guidance regarding the question. But it is standard practice that contractors are not to report to government facilities if government employees are not there. As an example, if the government closes a facility for weather conditions, support contractors should not report. The contracting officer will need to handle, in accordance with the terms of the contract, the impact of this inability of the support contractor to report to work.
