Using the TSC, an X19 task order was instructed to the Contractor to complete a series of repetative tasks over a 5 month period. During month 3 and approximately half way through the task order programme the Service Manager instructed the Contractor to stop the works and notified a CE and instructed the Contractor to submit a quote.
The Contractors assessment included the Defined Cost of down time for his labour whilst he redeployed them and similar Defined Costs for the abortive costs of subcontractors and equipment. All this Defined Cost is supported by records and has the relevant fee % added, which the Service manager agrees with. However the Contractor is also assessing the loss of his profit and overhead on the value of the task order that was not completed. The Service Manager does not accept this is a correct assessment and has instructed the Contractor to re-submit his quotation.
How should the Contractor assess this CE?
