      Third Party

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Third Party" because a contractor is a person or organization that is hired to perform work or provide services for another party, known as the principal. In this scenario, the contractor is not an agent of the principal, but rather a separate entity that is contracted to carry out specific tasks or services.

    What are the two categories of actual authority?

    • C.

      Express and implied

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Express and implied
    Explanation
    Express authority refers to the authority that is explicitly given to an individual through written or verbal communication. It is clear and specific, leaving no room for interpretation. Implied authority, on the other hand, is not directly stated but is understood to be necessary for carrying out the tasks or responsibilities assigned. It is derived from the nature of the position or role held by the individual. Therefore, express and implied authority are the two categories of actual authority.

      That the individual and the Gov't share the suffering from the mistakes

    Correct Answer
    C. For an individual to occasionally suffer from the mistakes
    Explanation
    The US Supreme Court has stated that when government personnel make a mistake, it is better for an individual to occasionally suffer from the mistakes. This means that instead of adopting a rule that might harm the public or placing the burden solely on the government, it is more reasonable to accept that individuals may sometimes face the consequences of government mistakes. This approach ensures a balance between protecting the public and acknowledging that mistakes can happen.

    Explanation
    The contractor is responsible for ascertaining whether government agents are acting within the bounds of their authority.

The contractor is accountable for monitoring the actions of the government agents and making sure that they are not exceeding their authority or engaging in any unauthorized activities.

    • A.

      Gov't knew or should have known the true facts

    • B.

      Contractor did not know and should have know the true facts

    • C.

      Gov't intended that the contractor rely on acts of the gov't

    • D.

      Contractor did not reasonably and innocently rely on the acts of the gov't

    Correct Answer
    D. Contractor did not reasonably and innocently rely on the acts of the gov't
    Explanation
    Equitable estoppel is a legal doctrine that prevents one party from denying or asserting a right after leading another party to believe in the existence of that right. The elements of equitable estoppel typically include: the government knew or should have known the true facts, the government intended that the contractor rely on acts of the government, and the contractor did not know and should not have known the true facts. The incorrect element in this case is that the contractor did not reasonably and innocently rely on the acts of the government. This means that the contractor must have relied on the government's acts in a reasonable and innocent manner for equitable estoppel to apply.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Cases filed under the doctrine of estoppel are generall decided on the issue of

    • A.

      Whether the gov't acted in the public's interest

    • B.

      Whether the contractor acted reasonably and innocently

    • C.

      Who would otherwise have had authority to release the information

    • D.

      Whether the contractor would have otherwise benefited from the action

    Correct Answer
    B. Whether the contractor acted reasonably and innocently
    Explanation
    Cases filed under the doctrine of estoppel are generally decided on the issue of whether the contractor acted reasonably and innocently. Estoppel is a legal principle that prevents a person from asserting a claim or right that contradicts what they previously stated or agreed upon. In this context, if a contractor acted reasonably and innocently based on the information provided by the government, they may be protected under estoppel. This means that even if the contractor would have otherwise benefited from the action or the government acted in the public's interest, the key factor in deciding the case is whether the contractor acted reasonably and innocently.

      Anually

    • B.

      Every two years

    • C.

      Every five years

    • D.

      When requested by the appointing authority

    Correct Answer
    B. Every two years
    Explanation
    A CO appointment must be reviewed every two years to ensure that the individual appointed is still qualified and suitable for the position. This regular review helps to maintain the integrity and effectiveness of the appointment process. It allows for any changes in the appointee's qualifications or circumstances to be assessed and addressed in a timely manner. Additionally, it provides an opportunity for the appointing authority to evaluate the performance and conduct of the CO, ensuring that they continue to meet the requirements and expectations of the role.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Which statement concerning the CO's appointment or termination is true?

      In no event will the termination of a CO be retroactive

    • B.

      Termination of a CO may be retroactive if in the best interest of the gov't

    • D.

      Termination of a CO appointment is made verbally unless Certificate of Appointment contains a provision for automatic termination.

    Correct Answer
    A. In no event will the termination of a CO be retroactive
    Explanation
    The correct answer states that in no event will the termination of a CO be retroactive. This means that once a CO's appointment is terminated, it will not be applied retroactively from a past date. The termination will only be effective from the date it is officially terminated. This ensures that any actions or decisions made by the CO during their appointment remain valid and unaffected by the termination.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which statement about the offeree is correct?

    • A.

      The offeror may not direct the offer to a class of person or to a public intending that any member of the class of public have the power to accept.

    • D.

      Only the intended offeree can accept the offer.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Only the intended offeree can accept the offer." This means that the offeror cannot direct the offer to a class of people or to the public with the intention that any member of the class or public can accept. Instead, there is always one specific offeree identified in whom the power of acceptance is vested. The offeror cannot direct the offer to more than one person, and only the intended offeree has the ability to accept the offer.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Which statement about an offer is correct?

    • A.

      A. It is not enough that only the essential terms of the contract are certain.

    • B.

      B. termination.

    • C.

      C. revocation.

    • D.

      D. breach of contract.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. revocation.
    Explanation
    When an offeror withdraws their offer before it is accepted, it is referred to as a revocation. This means that the offer is no longer available for acceptance by the offeree. Cancellation refers to the termination of a contract after it has been accepted, termination is the ending of a contract by either party, and breach of contract occurs when one party fails to fulfill their obligations under the contract.

    • C.

      C. Acceptance must be communicated by the US mail.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. If the time, place, and means of communication are expressed by the offeror, no other time, place, or means will constitute an acceptance.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a. If the time, place, and means of communication are expressed by the offeror, no other time, place, or means will constitute an acceptance. This means that if the offeror specifies how and when the acceptance should be communicated, the offeree must adhere to those specifications for the acceptance to be valid. Any other time, place, or means of communication would not be considered as an acceptance.

    • D.

      D. Consideration.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Consideration.
    Explanation
    Consideration is the name given to the exchange of promises. In a contract, consideration refers to something of value that is given in exchange for a promise or performance. It can be a payment, a promise to do something, or a promise to refrain from doing something. Consideration is an essential element of a legally binding contract as it ensures that both parties have provided something of value and have entered into the agreement willingly. Therefore, the correct answer is d. Consideration.

    Explanation

    • D.

      D. Having the mental capacity to understand the intent to be bound.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. Having the mental capacity to understand the intent to be bound.
    Explanation
    The term "competent" in regards to a contracting party means that the individual has the mental capacity to understand the intent to be bound. This means that they are capable of comprehending the terms and consequences of a contract and are able to make informed decisions regarding their participation in the contract. It is important for a contracting party to be competent in order for the contract to be legally valid and enforceable.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    18. (001) Which individual would be considered competent to enter into a contract?

    • A.

      A. A 23-year-old car salesperson.

    • B.

      B. A 17-year-old college student.

    • C.

      C. A 25-year-old intoxicated person.

    • D.

      D. A 50-year-old patient in a mental institution.

    Correct Answer
    A. A. A 23-year-old car salesperson.
    Explanation
    A 23-year-old car salesperson would be considered competent to enter into a contract because they are of legal age and presumed to have the mental capacity to understand and fulfill the obligations of a contract. Age and mental capacity are important factors in determining competence to enter into a contract. The other options - a 17-year-old college student, a 25-year-old intoxicated person, and a 50-year-old patient in a mental institution - may have limitations in their ability to understand the terms and consequences of a contract, thus making them less likely to be considered competent.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    19. (001) As a general rule, a contract that violates a statute is

    • A.

      A. lawful if not challenged with 120 days.

    • B.

      B. lawful only to the party who made the offer.

    • C.

      C. unlawful and void and will not be enforced.

    • D.

      D. unlawful but may be enforced under some situations.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. unlawful and void and will not be enforced.
    Explanation
    A contract that violates a statute is considered unlawful and void, meaning it has no legal effect and will not be enforced by the courts. This is because statutes are laws enacted by the government, and any contract that goes against these laws is not valid. Therefore, parties cannot rely on the contract to enforce their rights or obligations.

    Rate this question:

  • 20. 

    20. (001) Under the clean hands doctrine, an individual may enforce an illegal contract when

    • A.

      A. the agreement concerns minor crimes.

    • B.

      B. only a portion of the contract was illegal.

    • C.

      C. the agreement was made to restrain trade.

    • D.

      D. the innocent party to the contract is in the class of persons for whom the law is designed to protect.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. the innocent party to the contract is in the class of persons for whom the law is designed to protect.
    Explanation
    The clean hands doctrine allows an individual to enforce an illegal contract if they are the innocent party and belong to the class of persons that the law is designed to protect. This means that even though the contract may be illegal, the innocent party can still seek enforcement if they are within a group that the law aims to safeguard. This exception is made to prevent unjust outcomes and ensure that individuals who are meant to be protected by the law are not unfairly disadvantaged.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Ratification is the act of approving or confirming an unauthorized commitment made by a government employee. In order for ratification to occur, the government must have obtained a benefit from the performance. If the government did not receive any benefit from the performance, there would be no reason to ratify the unauthorized commitment. Therefore, this situation would preclude ratification.

    • C.

      C. AFI 65-109.

    • D.

      D. AFPD 64-1.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. AFI 64-102.
    Explanation
    AFI 64-102 is the correct answer because it specifically addresses the roles and responsibilities of positions within the operational contracting squadron. AFI 38-101 pertains to the Air Force organization, while AFI 65-109 relates to financial management. AFPD 64-1 is a policy directive for contracting. Therefore, AFI 64-102 is the most relevant AFI for defining the roles and responsibilities within the operational contracting squadron.

    • D.

      D. suspends performance for 60 days, then processes a contract cancellation.

    Correct Answer
    C. C. suspends performance or terminates the awarded contract.
    Explanation
    When an agency receives notice of a protest from GAO within 10 days after contract award or within five days after a debriefing date, the contracting officer immediately suspends performance or terminates the awarded contract. This is because the protest raises concerns about the validity of the contract, and the agency wants to ensure that no further work is done until the protest is resolved. Suspending performance or terminating the contract allows the agency to avoid potential legal and financial complications.

  • 35. 

    35. (003) How many days does an interested party have to protest after the basis of a protest is known, or should have been known?

This time limit ensures that protests are made in a timely manner and allows for prompt resolution of any issues that may arise. Waiting longer than 10 days could potentially hinder the process and cause unnecessary delays.

    The Government Accountability Office (GAO) has 100 days to issue its recommendation on a protest. This means that once a protest is filed, the GAO has a maximum of 100 days to review the case and provide its recommendation. This timeframe allows for a thorough examination of the protest and ensures that a timely decision is made.

    Rate this question:

  • 37. 

    37. (003) What action may the contractor take when a dispute cannot be resolved by mutual agreement of the contracting parties?

    • A.

      A. Submit a claim under the Default clause.

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. Submit a claim under the Disputes clause.
    Explanation
    When a dispute cannot be resolved by mutual agreement, the contractor may submit a claim under the Disputes clause. This clause is typically included in government contracts and provides a mechanism for resolving disputes between the contracting parties. By submitting a claim under this clause, the contractor is initiating a formal process to seek resolution and potentially receive compensation for any damages or losses incurred. This is often the next step when informal negotiations have failed to reach a resolution.

      10 days after accrual of the claim.

    • B.

      B. 180 days after accrual of the claim.

    • D.

      D. six years after accrual of the claim.

    Correct Answer

This means that contractors have a significant amount of time to submit their claims for consideration and resolution. It allows for potential delays or complications that may arise during the claims process. Additionally, it ensures that contractors have ample opportunity to gather all necessary evidence and documentation to support their claim before submitting it for a decision.

    • D.

      D. DFARS Appendix C.

    Correct Answer
    B. B. DFARS Appendix A.

    43. (003) Two techniques of ADR are

    • A.

      A. mitigation and controversy hearings.

    • B.

      B. mediation and controversy hearings.

    • C.

      C. mitigation and arbitration.

    • D.

      D. mediation and arbitration.

    Correct Answer
    D. D. mediation and arbitration.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is d. mediation and arbitration. Mediation is a technique of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) where a neutral third party helps the parties involved in a dispute to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. Arbitration, on the other hand, is a process where a neutral third party, called an arbitrator, reviews the evidence and makes a decision that is legally binding on the parties. Therefore, both mediation and arbitration are techniques used in ADR to resolve disputes outside of the traditional court system.

This means that the funds cannot be carried over to the following year and must be used within the fiscal year they were allocated for. This rule ensures that funds are used in a timely manner and prevents unnecessary accumulation of funds.

    • C.

      C. Continuing.

    • D.

      D. Multiple year.

    Correct Answer

    O&M funds are categorized as annual appropriations because they are intended to cover the costs of operating and maintaining facilities and equipment for a specific fiscal year. These funds are allocated on a yearly basis and must be used within that fiscal year. Unlike no-year or continuing appropriations, O&M funds do not carry over from one year to the next. Multiple year appropriations, on the other hand, are used for projects that span multiple fiscal years and are not typically used for O&M expenses.
