I'm with the Inspector General Office and had a question about issues with contractors.

Who is authroized to address issues and initiate action when there is an issue with a contrator that needs addressing and investigating?  I believe it's the contracting officer (KO), but I need verification and a standard (reference:  FAR, policy, other regulation).

If a contractor is performing a task that has to continue while the contracotr is on leave, who can/should perform the task while that contractor takes a vacation for two weeks?  Should the company under contract backfill with one of their employees or is it appropriate for civilian management to assign the task to a civilian employee while the contractor is out on vacation?
