(4) At the request of the Government, the Contractor shall be prepared to submit a plan for participation in the S&S validation and testing in order to verify the S&S capability described in the CAP. Participation in the validation and audit of S&S is for the government at no additional cost and does not justify an appropriate adjustment of the contract price. The plan should include the methodology, evaluation criteria, work, materials and time required to complete validations and tests. S&S validation usually involves verifying that the contractor and subcontractors have equipment, facilities, personnel, inventory, pre-positioned raw materials, production capacity and basic resources; (b) distribution agreements, networks and plans (reception, storage, packaging and publishing); (c) transport services to meet the S&S requirements of the contract; (d) consideration of possible internal work; (e) the revision of the stock rotation plan; and (f) other contracts affecting the production of additional or accelerated supplies of contracted quantities. It is not necessary to include the test/verification plan in the supplier`s proposal. Suppliers are encouraged to consider, when formulating the proposal, the possibility for the Government to request such participation. (1) The Program Manager or Integrated Support Team Leader (IST) (i.e., a higher level than the contract manager) for each bespoke logistics support program (i.e. the team that manages the program, for example.B metals, MRO supplies or special operations) must perform quarterly price revisions. The ratings include a representative sample based on the total number of orders for that period.
Following these audits, the Tailored Logistics Support Program Manager/IST Head must report on the results, including all results and corrective actions, to the Director of Contract Operations or the lead for review and approval. A copy of the report must be stored as part of the contract file. (b) a reopening requirement provides a means of achieving a fair solution to the treatment of significant occasional costs, both when initially setting the prices of a contract and at any time when an appropriate adjustment of that price is necessary in accordance with the provisions of the requirement. Its use requires special attention in order to prevent the risk from being shifted from the contractor to the government. It should only be used in exceptional circumstances involving high-value purchases in dollars, and rarely below the TINA threshold, where uncertainty related to certain cost elements has a significant influence on the contract price. (d) the requirement for certified cost or price data and the applicability of the dispute settlement clause. (a) a BPV contract or other tailor-made logistics support contract shall correspond to one of the VPV price models defined in subsection 15.4. While maintaining a DAPA is a prerequisite for manufacturers and suppliers to supply their medical products through DLA`s Medical/Surgical Prime Vendor Program, it is only the first step in this process. All DAPA holders are also required to sign a distribution agreement, obtain product liability coverage and market their products. Here too, each of these steps is described in detail in the publication “DAPAs Made Easy”. A DAPA is not a contract.
This is an agreement between DLA Troop Support and the manufacturers/suppliers of the MSPV program. The DAPA sets both the selling price of the products and the authority to authorize DLA Troop Supports PVs to distribute the products of a DAPA-Holder to DLA Troop Supports military and other federal customers. . . .
