Can the Government allow a vendor to charge Costs on one IDIQ Task Order for similar work performed on a different Task Order under the same IDIQ? I agree with the DCAA findings. This does not seem allowable, even if they were for similar work issued off the same IDIQ. Should vendor still be paid for this work on the appropriate Task Order (TO 0002)? This seems appropriate, as the work was performed, just not charged to the correct Task Order. Were there any appropriations violations here, or would you need more funding details?
ANSWER: No, the work and the costs associated with the work have to be charged to the authorized task order. DCAA is correct. The proper way to do this is not cross charging, but to have an overrun for TO 0002.
