3,000 units. In 2008, the war in Iraq had pushed the need for the bushings to a higher level. The Base issued an IFB for 10,000 bushings. Contractor X submitted its bid at $10 each for 10,000 bushings. The cost of producing the bushings had gone up significantly, due to rises in energy costs and other factors. Due to the urgency of the war, Hill AFB awarded a contract to Co. X at $10 per bushing.

Uploaded file: Points earned: 90 Points worth: 100 Instructor Comments: This could have been a superior paper. However you attempted to "hurry through it." Let me state unequivocally that is a minimum word limit on student words, 125 per question, and quoting the question does not count in that minimum. On questions 1,2,4,5, and 6 were all well below that minimum. Now for some specifics: Q.1 Good conclusion, but too brief. Q.2. Too brief. Also the protest was probably denied. A COTR is not considered a Procurement Official for Conflict of Interest purposes. FAR 3.104-(3)(6)(4). Q.3.Good conclusion but too brief. Q.4.The issue here that was not discussed was does the Conflict of Interest requirements applicable to Government Officials apply to immediate family members, the answer is yes they do. Q.5. Again a good conclusion but too brief. You needed to state that it is the Constitution Article I Sec 9 which contains the Appropriations Clause. You allude to that but do not say it. Q.6. Offorer needed to provide some form of Consideration to keep the desk from being sold. Page 3 of 3 Government Contract Law 5/6/2017 ...
