  • Premature Implementation of New Sick Leave Requirement Could Cost You Contract Price Adjustments

    You’ve probably heard by now that President Obama announced an executive order on Labor Day requiring government contractors to give workers sick leave in addition to vacation and fringe benefits already required by the Service Contract Act and Davis Bacon Act. That executive order would entitle employees of government contractors to earn up to 7 days or more of paid sick leave annually, including paid leave allowing for family care. (Executive Order 13706, 80 Fed. Reg. 54,697)

  • The Long Walk to … Lunch

    Does a “walkable 1/2 mile” extend to 0.6 miles?  Is a BBQ stand properly considered an “eating facility” – even if it does not have any place to sit?  How about a takeout place with only six tables?  A GSA contracting officer answered each of these questions affirmatively when selecting a proposal for a building lease in the Northern Mariana Islands.  The building was for the U.S. District Court and other related services – Probation, Marshalls Service and U.S. Attorney’s offices.  Think employees and visitors who will want a place nearby for lunch.  And, the Request for Lease Proposal (“RLP”) said that offerors had to propose  a location that was in the immediate vicinity of eating facilities “generally not exceeding a walkable 1/2 mile” – as determined by the contracting officer.
