    Is the Government obligated to pay for the estimated quantity contained in the bonding CLIN as stated in the task order, or the actual bond cost? In this case, the estimated quantity was double the actual bond cost.


    Answer

    If the Government said in the contract that it would pay based on the estimated quantity, and the contract is firm fixed price, then the Government has to pay based upon the estimated quantity- not the actual quantity. You can't re-negotiate a FFP contract just because you made a really bad deal.
