Frequently Asked Questions
Does NITAAC add the NIH Contract Access Fee (NCAF) to contract holder fully burdened rates?
No. The NCAF is not included in contract holder fully burdened rates under either the CIO-SP3 or CIO-SP3 Small Business GWACs. Therefore, the NCAF should be listed as a separate line item in contractor proposals as detailed in Article G.8 (NIH Contract Access Fee Remittance) of the CIO-SP3 or CIO-SP3 Small Business conformed contracts.
Can we propose labor categories and/or rates other than those in our contract?
Yes, if for unique professional skills. See Unique Professional Skills – Task Order Level in your contract. A new or different skill level category may be proposed at the task order level. You will need to provide detailed justification for the new/different skill level category. The OCO will determine whether circumstances warrant the use of unique professional skills.
