We would like to include an in-kind contribution from a subcontractor who will not be submitting their own separate bid. Should this contribution be included as part of our bid?
Answer: Since each Participation Agreement (PA) will be a bilateral contract between OGC and the bidding organization, in general OGC will not scrutinize the details of how the Bidder chooses to acquire any downstream subcontracting services so long as it promises to make timely delivery. So a Bidder's in-kind proposal could, for example, include an estimated market-value of a downstream subcontractor's contribution to the Bidder's own total proposed in-kind contribution. However, since cost-share funding may only be used for labor cost, any downstream subcontractor contribution amount may only be listed under the Bidder's in-kind contribution (not cost-share). updated: 2019-02-08 09:03:02
