Can we modify the contract to add a CLIN that will cross fiscal years and option periods? If so, what happens if we do not exercise the next option period?
Periods of performance cross fiscal years all the time, as this is no longer a violation of the Bona Fide Needs Rule. In addition, periods of performance from one CLIN to another are not required to align with each other. Regarding the second part of your question, the Government has the unilateral right to not exercise an option period so I don't see any issues with this either.
