The contracting officer should probably consult with her legal advisor and contract fraud investigators to
determine the appropriate course of action.
You have spent the last 2 months analyzing a proposal to convert existing distance learning (DL) courseware into the new Learning Content Management System (LCMS). It is anticipated that this effort will take at least 2 years to complete, if there aren't any major problems during conversion.
You had hoped to receive a couple of responses to the solicitation. However, you only received 1 proposal, from the LCMS developer. Over the years, the DL courses were developed by multiple vendors using various development tools. It is this variation in background coding that is likely the reason for only receiving one offer.
Since you only received the 1 offer, you did request cost and pricing data from the contractor.
The proposal is significantly more than the Government's cost estimate and the available funding for this effort.
- Discuss your negotiation strategy for this requirement. Would you require cost or pricing data? If so, why or why not?
