We compared the two checklists and noted a few differences. Items appearing in the DoD checklist that do not have a corresponding criteria in the old DCAA checklist include:
- Item #17. Does the proposal include a description of supplies or services and the basis on which the supply or service meets the Government's requirements?
- Item #34. If covered by the Service Contract Labor Standards statute, are the rates in the proposal in compliance with the minimum rates specified in the statute?
- Item #43. Is proposed fee in accordance with statutory guidance?
- Item #45. If the offeror is proposing Performance-Based Payments have they provided an expenditure profile, proposed events and their projected dates, proposed values for each event, completion criteria, and identification of which events are severable or cumulative?
Items appearing in the DCAA checklist that do not have a corresponding criteria in the new DoD checklist include:
- Item #4. Is the proposal mathematically accurate and does the supporting data reconcile to the proposal?
- Item #26. Are the Basis of Estimates (BoEs) included for all labor hours with detailed rationale (i.e. historical experience, engineering estimates, learning curves, basis for cost estimating relationships (CERs)) to support the estimates.
- Item #32. In the case of a letter contract, does the proposal identify actual hours, and cost incurred as well as hours/cost to complete and the time phasing associated with these hours/costs?
