    Can I submit the request to our Contracting Office with "subject to availability of fy12 funds" or can I just submit the request without SAF? Does the end of CRA dictate that the SAF should be used for any start on or after 17th December. Thanks, Teresa


    Answer

    You should follow the guidance of your local contracting activity/command.
     
    Although the current Continuing Resolution (CR) period may end on 16 December 2011, Congress may not pass the appropriations act by that date or the President may not sign the Act by that date, requiring another CR period. If history is an indicator of the future, you may find yourself operating under multiple CRs before we have an appropriation.
     
    The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) addresses the "Subject to Availability of Funds" Clauses.  Specific Chapters are: 52.232-18 Availability of Funds, 52.232-19 Availability of Funds for the Next Fiscal Year, 33.703-2 Contracts conditioned on availability of funds and 43.105 Contract modifications/Availability of funds.
