What Is A Forward Pricing Rate Agreement

There is a lot of confusion and frustration on the part of a contractor when it comes to forward pricing rate proposals (FPRP) and term rate agreements (FPRA). This confusion and frustration is a pure lack of direction given to this process in the FAR. In this blog, we compile regulations and guidelines related to term pricing so that entrepreneurs can better understand the process and mitigate some of the frustrations and issues we often see. b) The CCO shall obtain the contractor`s proposal and require that it contain cost or price data that is accurate, complete and up-to-date at the time of submission. The COA invites the relevant contract examiner and contracting offices with a significant interest to participate in the development of a government objective and in negotiations. Following negotiations, the ACO prepares a Price Negotiation Memorandum (MFN) (see 15.406-3) and forwards copies of the MFN and FPRA to the auditor concerned and to all contract offices known to be affected by the FPRA. A certificate of current costs or price data is currently not required (see 15.407-3(c)). c) The FPRA sets specific conditions for the procedure, application and data requirements for systematic monitoring to ensure the validity of tariffs. The Contract shall prevail in termination at the option of one of the parties and shall require the Contractor to submit any material changes in cost or price data to the ACO and the relevant contract auditor. Even this one doesn`t contain many details about the tariff agreement. Instead, this regulation requires the CCO to determine whether the benefits of the agreement are reasonably related to the effort required to establish and monitor an FPRA, adding that this is generally the case when the contractor has a significant volume of government contract prices. Interestingly, the definition of “significant volume of prices for government procurement” is not defined (see below the discussion of PGI DFARS 242.302(a)(S-75) for the definition of “significant volume of prices for government procurement”).
