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?
Contracting for "Agile" has been something that has come up in contracting circles in the past few years, but probably hasn't been taken seriously because DoD hasn't come out with any official guidance for contracting to follow, until now: OUSD (A&S) has come out with the attached document entitled, "Contracting Considerations for Agile Solutions; Key Agile Concepts and Sample Work Statement Language" dated 18 November 2019.
It is a fairly comprehensive document, and we can expect to see more coming out on Agile Contracting in the future, but this document is a great start for those trying to lean forward with Agile. There are lots of great references to other "Agile Contracting" resources, located within the document.
Attachment is below:

The DAU Provision and Clause Matrix continues to be updated regularly, on the 1st and 15th of each month pending significant changes. Additionally, the matrix has been expanded with the latest update on 21 October, to include all AFFARS and NMCARS clauses. After Don Mansfield's departure from DAU in June of 2019, I have become the Learning Asset Manager (LAM) for this tool, and I am committed to keeping it an updated and relevant tool in the DAU toolbox. Should you have any questions about the matrix, you can send them to me at email@example.com. You can download the DAU Provision and Clause Matrix at https://www.dau.mil/tools/t/FAR,-DFARS,-VAAR,-DEAR-Provision-and-Clause-Matrix.
DAU has updated the Provision and Clause Matrix to incorporate changes made by Defense Publication Notice (DPN) 20190215. The DPN affected provisions and clauses implementing "Antiterrorism Training Requirements for Contractors (DFARS Case 2017-D034)", "Use of Commercial or Non-Government Standards (DFARS Case 2017-D014)", "Modification of DFARS Clause 'Transportation of Supplies By Sea' (DFARS Case 2018-D028)" and "Extension of Supply Chain Risk Management Authority (DFARS Case 2018-D072)."

I am in the process of developing a course that is delivered over 7 weeks entirely in BB, ILT, asynchronous. We plan on meeting up once a week in office hours, but, other than that students can work on the course anytime. The course relies on videos, job aids and BB graphics with hands on examples/case studies. Question: Does anyone in the CON department know if CON has something similar to this? ILT, asynchronous.
Second question: The new CON subway tool: How many CON people do you have assigned to this? Is there a plan into the future for maintenance? (CCM is looking at a admin tool/website and we are curious about workload.)
