BLUF: Is furniture required by the FARs to be tracked as part of the contractor's GFE/GFP management plan?
I'm the COR on two C-5 flight simulator contracts and looking for guidance on any requirement for the contractors to maintain/report furniture (i.e., desk, chairs, tables, bookcases, etc.). Up until about 17 years ago my contracts actually listed the furniture the contractor had to track and account for annually but with the award of a new contract, at about that time, and at the Post Award Conference my PCO advised furniture was not longer required to be managed and tracked. So I have not performed furniture intentories the past 12 years. The term "furniture" used to be defined in the FAR but now I cannot find any reference to the term. My current SPO does not have a PM/PLCO assigned and I'm being told my contractors do have to make furniture part of their management plan and perform the 100% annual inventory, along with the Recompetition Support/Spares Packages. I attended the Property Management and Disposal classes at AFIT many years ago but that training is dated. Any input/references is greatly appreciated.
Lets say the government owns one set of crain test weights, but there are multiple contractors that need to use them intermittenly.
In additon, the government workers are trying to use them as well.
My questions is: what is the best way to document this?
In my mind an asset can only be associated with one contract at a time. The contracts say that the government will provide these weights, but the COR/KO want the goverment to continue to use them as well.
I have other things like computers and radios that are checked out by contractors for a single shift use.
LCLMS, looking for experience to leverage on providing a component of an Air Force equipment item under a Darpa Contract as GFE that will be modified and used in multiple locations. Concerned that the Equipment account item can't be transfered to the contractor as they are not recieving an entire equipment account item but a sub-component. Also looking for the legal means to make this transfer happen since there is a conglomerate of parties. Darpa has the contract with the contractor and is under a SOC with AEDC as the ETO and Test Wing falls under AEDC as a PTO supporting the program through LOA with AEDC.
Good day all, I'm looking for a sample for designating a PA from the contracting officer. Any help would be appreciated.
Currently there is a Contract with the command I am supporting as a PA. The COR forwarded a copy of the contract for my review. As I reviewed the contract, I verified that the required Property Clauses were listed on the contract, which entitles the Contractor GFP equipment.
As stated earlier, that I was not assigned this contract as the PA. One of the government Property Custodians has accepted the management of the assets and has issued the assets the contractors using DD-1150 and DPAS HRs.
Now that you have the background: Here is the question.
Is there a FAR Clause that identifies this has an issue or a contract violation.
Thanks community members, looking forward to your responses and suggestions.
do you think should be concerned about Government property and why?
I have been asked to provide a brief to a group of Contracting Officer Representatives regarding GFP basics that they should know. Anyone have any ideas on which topics to cover? One of them asked me if I had a 'GFP Cheat Sheet' for CORs. What types of issues should I include? I only have about 30-45 minutes, so I can't really go too deeply in to it. Thanks for your suggestions!
