At the time of exercising an option- or just there after, should all the causes in the original award be reviewed and updated, additionally any new clauses added if necessary. Is this considered good administrative practice? Of course it would be a bilateral modification and the offeror would be able to come in for a request for equitable adjustment if any of the updated/new clauses changed their price. It was told to me that this was a best practice but I have never heard of this happening.

The best contract is an adaptable contract. As long as any new clause(s) does not change the scope of the Government's requirement (which might then require a J&A), reviewing the clauses from the basic contract to ensure they are still relevant and are in Government's best interests is always a good practice.
