Section C – Description and Specifications

ACCOMPLISH THE REPAIR AND ALTERATION REQUIREMENTS [Modified by Buyer]

  1. New Work” is identified after provision of the authorized availability package. “Growth Work” will be related to a previously identified specification item. New Work will not be related to any previously authorized specification item, and the New Work will be assigned a new specification item number. (1) GROWTH WORK. When tasked, Seller shall prepare and submit Growth Work specified in a format to be specified by Buyer that will be compatible with the format Buyer is required to use with the Government. Each Contract Work item shall include work operations, trade skills involved, material requirements, estimated man-hours by trades and schedule of which work is to be completed. Buyer will review each costed or priced work item when submitted. Authorization to proceed with Growth Work will be provided by Buyer after it receives approval from the Government’s ACO and will be subject to the LIMITATION OF FUNDS CLAUSE. (2) NEW WORK. All New Work specifications written by Seller shall be authorized by Buyer and also authorized by the Government’s ACO, and approved by the Government’s NSA/Government designated representative. Upon receipt of a New Work specification, Seller shall propose a change in the estimated cost and fee to be incorporated into the Contract. Each New Work item shall include work operations, trade skills involved, material requirements, estimated man-hours by trades and schedule of which New Work is to be completed. After receipt of the information from Seller, Buyer will provide it to the NSA/Government designated representative for review and approval. Authorization to proceed with New Work shall only be granted by the Government’s ACO to Buyer, who will then authorize Seller, but only after the New Work has been priced, and always subject to the LIMITATION OF FUNDS CLAUSE. Once authorization is granted, Seller shall update its manning and production analysis. (3) The Navy intends that all basic and New Work authorized for the repair and alteration of Vessels to be compatible with the scheduled availability duration. Seller shall accomplish all New Work within the scheduled availability duration or inform Buyer because Buyer is obligated to inform the Government’s ACO as soon as practicable of schedule impacts. Any schedule impacts must be approved by Buyer prior to proceeding.
  2. CONDITION FOUND REPORT (“CFR”). (1) Seller will identify needed repairs and recommend corrective action during performance for those deficiencies discovered which are not covered by the work specifications. As found conditions, needed repairs and corrective action reports will be submitted electronically to Buyer in the form of an Inspection Deficiency Report (“IDR”). (2) IDRs, cost estimates and supporting data will be submitted electronically via e-mail within five (5) working days of identification of the requirement to the designated NASSCO Area Manager. As a minimum, the IDR will include: Contract number, ship and hull number, IDR number, applicable work item number, date requirement was discovered, description of the work requirement, specific location of the work, recommendation for corrective action, Recommendation for the appropriate/best time to accomplish the work (i.e., during current availability with or without schedule change, future CNO or Continuous Maintenance Availability), and provide supporting rational for the recommendation, such as cost efficiencies, availability of work force, availability of material, premium expenditures, etc., identification of related changes, if any, to the internal milestones and production and contract completion dates. If none, state there are none. The Government will write the RCC. When requested by the Government, Buyer will write the RCC, and the CFR will be returned to Buyer as “approved” in NMD with instructions to write the RCC for growth work, or other action as necessary. (3) Buyer reviews the IDR and at its sole discretion, converts the IDR into a Condition Found Report for submission to the Government. The Government MST reviews the CFR with the requirement (deficiency), recommendation for corrective action and estimate for correctness. The Government determines if the work is required, and potentially affordable. If the CFR is inadequate or incomplete, it may be rejected by the Government, but rejection by the Government does not automatically occur. In many cases, the Government and Buyer will need to meet, discuss the recommendation for corrective action, make ship checks to determine full scope of work and evaluate costs prior to final approval of the CFR. In concert with the “approved” CFR, an RCC is generated to accomplish the scope of work as designated by the Government. The RCC may be written by either Buyer or the Government as directed by the Government. When determined that Buyer will write the RCC, the CFR is returned to Buyer as “approved” in NMD with instructions to write the RCC for growth work, or other action as necessary. (i) Neither Buyer’s decision to convert an IDR into a CFR, nor the Government’s decision to issue or solicit an RCC in response to such a CFR shall constitute approval for Seller to perform any work related to their submitted IDR. All work must be authorized in accordance with this Contract. (ii) Seller shall develop a time and cost estimate, and the time frame for which it is valid, including: 1. Class “C” (+ - 15%) cost estimate. If the work requirement cannot be estimated within five working days, provide a class “F” estimate (+ - 40%) identifying any potential impact which may affect the current schedule. The class “F” estimate will also contain the date on which a class “C” estimate will be provided. 2. Estimated Premium/Acceleration Costs, including premium costs for; material, subcontractors, man-hours, rework and any additional costs to ongoing work resulting from inclusion of the CFR work requirement. 3. The Contracting Officer interfaces with the SBS, PM, BIW and Seller to determine the final agreed price on the man-hours and material, and this information will be communicated to Seller. (iii) Upon receipt of Buyer direction to develop a New Work item specification or a New Work item written by the Government, provide the work specification and a class “C” cost estimate within three (3) working days.
  3. PREMIUM TIME
    As part of Seller’s proposal, Seller will propose the necessary overtime hours. Overtime will not be proposed or negotiated as a percentage of the overall hours. Seller will propose overtime hours for each work item that requires the use of overtime and must be approved by Buyer, who must also receive approval from the Government designated representative prior to implementation of the overtime. When establishing the proposed overtime amount for each work item, Seller will consider such things as: 1. Historical use of overtime hours for the work item in previous availabilities; 2. Length and time allotted to accomplish the availability; 3. Amount and nature of work to be accomplished; 4. Number of hours for each trade to accomplish the work; 5. Manpower resources available to Seller to include the number of personnel required by trade; 6. Point in time on the critical path of the availability that the work needs to be accomplished; 7. Other pertinent facts pertaining to the need for proposed overtime. Seller’s proposal, when submitted, will contain all the supporting data and assumptions that were used in deriving the per work item overtime hour allotments.

ACCESS TO PROPRIETARY DATA OR COMPUTER SOFTWARE (NAVSEA) (JUN 1994) [Modified by Buyer]

  1. Performance under this Contract may require that Seller have access to technical data, computer software, or other sensitive data of another party who asserts that such data or software is proprietary. If access to such data or software is required or to be provided, Seller shall enter into a written agreement with such party prior to gaining access to such data or software. The agreement shall address, at a minimum, (1) access to, and use of, the proprietary data or software exclusively for the purposes of performance of the Contract Work required by this Contract, and (2) safeguards to protect such data or software from unauthorized use or disclosure for so long as the data or software remains proprietary.

  5. Seller shall include this requirement in subcontracts of any tier, which involve access to information covered by paragraph (a), substituting “subcontractor” for “Seller” where appropriate.
  6. Compliance with this requirement is a material requirement of this Contract.

ACCESS TO THE VESSEL(S) (AT) (NAVSEA) (JAN 1983) [Modified by Buyer]

Officers, employees and associates of other prime contractors with the Government and their subcontractors, shall, as authorized by Buyer or the Government’s representative, have, at all reasonable times, admission to the applicable plant, access to the Vessel(s) where and as required, and be permitted, within the Facility specified in the SOW or locations determined by the Government’s ACO and on the Vessel(s) required, to perform and fulfill their respective obligations to the Government. Buyer and Seller shall make reasonable arrangements with the Government or contractors of the Government, as shall have been identified and authorized by the Government’s representative to be given admission to the applicable location and access to the Vessel(s) for office space, work areas, storage or shop areas, or other facilities and services necessary for the performance of the respective responsibilities involved, and reasonable to their performance.

ACCESS TO VESSELS BY NON U.S. CITIZENS (NAVSEA) (DEC 2005) [Modified by Buyer]

  1. No person not known to be a U.S. citizen shall be eligible for access to the Vessels, work sites and adjacent areas when said Vessels are under construction, conversion, overhaul, or repair, except upon a finding by COMNAVSEA or his designated representative that such access should be permitted in the best interest of the United States. Seller shall establish procedures to comply with this requirement and NAVSEAINST 5500.3 (series) in effect on the date of this Contract.
  2. If Seller desires to employ non U.S. citizens in the performance of Contract Work under this Contract or agreement that requires access as specified in paragraph (a) of this requirement, approval must be obtained prior to access for each contract or agreement where such access is required. To request such approval for non U.S. citizens of friendly countries, Seller shall submit its Access Control Plan (ACP) to Buyer so that Buyer can comply with the terms of the Prime Contract and submit the ACP to the cognizant Contract Administration Office (“CAO”) for approval. Seller’s ACP shall contain as a minimum, the following information: (1) Badge or Pass oriented identification, access, and movement control system for non U.S. citizen employees with the badge or pass to be worn or displayed on outer garments at all times while on the Facilities or Seller’s facilities and when performing Contract Work aboard ship. (i) Badges must be of such design and appearance that permits easy recognition to facilitate quick and positive identification. (ii) Access authorization and limitations for the bearer must be clearly established and in accordance with applicable security regulations and instructions. (iii) A control system, which provides rigid accountability procedures for handling lost, damaged, forgotten or no longer required badges, must be established. (iv) A badge or pass check must be performed at all points of entry to the Facilities or Seller’s facilities (as the case may be) or by a site supervisor for Contract Work performed on Vessels outside the Facilities or Seller’s facilities (again, as the case may be). (1) Seller’s plan for ascertaining citizenship and for screening employees for security risk. (2) Data reflecting the number, nationality, and positions held by non U.S. citizen employees, including procedures to update data as non U.S. citizen employee data changes, and shall be passed by Buyer to the cognizant CAO. (3) Seller’s plan for ensuring its suppliers’ or subcontractors’ compliance with the provisions of Seller’s ACP. (4) These conditions and controls are intended to serve as guidelines representing the minimum requirements of an acceptable ACP. They are not meant to restrict Seller in any way from imposing additional controls necessary to tailor these requirements to the Facility, Seller’s facilities or to a specific facility.
  3. To request approval for non U.S. citizens of hostile and/or communist controlled countries (listed in Department of Defense Industrial Security Manual, DOD 5220.22M or available from cognizant CAO), Seller shall include in the ACP the following employee data: name, place of birth, citizenship (if different from place of birth), data of entry to U.S., extenuating circumstances (if any) concerning immigration to U.S., number of years employed by Seller, position, and stated intent concerning U.S. citizenship. COMNAVSEA or his designated representative will make individual determinations for desirability of access for above group. Approval of ACP’s representative for access of non-U.S. citizens of friendly countries will not be delayed for approval of non-U.S. citizens of hostile communist-controlled countries. Until approval is received, Seller must deny access to Vessels for employees who are non-U.S. citizens of hostile and/or communist-controlled countries.
  4. Seller shall fully comply with approved ACPs. Noncompliance by Seller or subcontractor serves to cancel any authorization previously granted, in which case Seller shall be precluded from the continued use of non-U.S. citizens on this Contract or agreement until such time as the compliance with an approved ACP is demonstrated and upon a determination by the ACAO that the Government’s interests are protected. Further, the Government reserves the right to cancel previously granted authority when such cancellation is determined to be in the Government’s best interest. Use of non-U.S. citizens, without an approved ACP or when a previously authorization has been canceled, will be considered a violation of security regulations. Upon confirmation by the CAO of such violation, this Contract, agreement or any job order issued under this Contract may be terminated or default in accordance with the clause entitled “DEFAULT (FIXED-PRICE SUPPLY AND SERVICE)” (FAR “TERMINATION (COST REIMBURSEMENT)” (FAR 52.249-6) as applicable.
  5. Seller has responsibility for the proper administration of the approved ACP applicable for the Contract Work performed under this Contract, regardless of the location of the Vessel, and must ensure compliance by its Suppliers, subcontractors, technical representatives and other persons granted access to the Vessels, adjacent areas, and work sites.
  6. In the event Seller does not intend to employ non-U.S. citizens in the performance of the Contract Work under this Contract, but has non-U.S. citizen employees, such employees must be precluded from access to the Vessel and its work site and those shops where Contract Work on the Vessel’s equipment is being performed. The ACP must spell out how non-U.S. citizens are excluded from access to Contract Work areas.
  7. The same restriction above shall apply to other non-U.S. citizens who have access to the Facilities and Seller’s facilities (e.g., for accomplishing facility improvements, from foreign-crewed Vessels within its facility, etc.).
  8. An ACP which has been approved for specific Master Ship Repair Agreement (“MSRA”) or Agreement for Boat Repair (“ABR”) or Basic Ordering Agreement (“BOA”), is valid and applicable to all job orders awarded under that agreement.

  4. No copy protection devices or systems shall be used in any computer software or computer database delivered under this Contract to restrict or limit the Government from making copies. This does not prohibit license agreements from specifying the maximum amount of copies that can be made.
  5. Delivery by Seller to Buyer who will ultimately deliver to the Government the technical data and other data is now frequently required in digital form rather than as hard copy. Such delivery may cause confusion between data rights and computer software rights. It is agreed that, to the extent that any such data is computer software by virtue of its delivery in digital form, the Government only will be licensed to use that digital-form with exactly the same rights and limitations as if the data had been delivered as hard copy.

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH STANDARDS FOR SHIP REPAIR (NAVSEA) (SEP 1990) [Modified by Buyer]

Attention of Seller is directed to the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (29 USC 651-678), and to the Safety and Health Regulations for Ship Repairing (29 CFR 1915), promulgated under Public Law 85-742, amending Section 41 of the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (33 USC 941), and adopted by the Department of Labor as occupational safety or health standards under Section 6(a) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (See 29 CFR 1910.13). These regulations apply to all Vessel repair and related work, as defined in the regulations performed under this Contract on the navigable waters of the United States including any dry dock and marine railway.

DISPOSAL OF SCRAP (NAVSEA) (APR 2008) [Modified by Buyer]

All Government scrap resulting from accomplishment of any Contract Work is the property of Buyer to be disposed of as it sees fit.

As consideration for retaining the Government’s scrap, Buyer’s price and Seller’s price for the performance of the Contract Work required herein shall be a net price reflecting the value of the Government scrap. This requirement is not intended to conflict in any way with the clause if this Contract entitled “GOVERNMENT PROPERTY” (FAR 52.245-1), nor does it relieve Seller of any other requirement under such clause.

Seller shall provide a copy of the standard commercial warranty with the item. The standard commercial warranty period shall begin upon the final acceptance of the applicable material or software. Acceptance of the standard commercial warranty does not waive Buyer’s or the Government’s rights under the “Inspection” clause, nor does it limit Buyer’s or the Government’s rights with regard to other terms and conditions of the Contract. In the event of a conflict, the terms and conditions of the Contract shall take precedence over the standard commercial warranty.

(2) Nothing contained in this requirement shall relieve Seller from complying with applicable federal, state, and local laws, codes, ordinances, and regulations, including obtaining licenses and permits, giving notices and submitting reports, in connection with hazardous waste management and disposal in the performance of this Contract. Nothing contained herein shall serve to alter either party’s liability or responsibility under applicable federal, state and local laws, codes and ordinances. (3) Materials contained in ship systems are not waste until after removal from the system.
  2. IDENTIFICATION OF HAZARDOUS WASTES. 077-01-001 of this Contract identifies the types and amounts of hazardous wastes that are required to be removed by Seller pursuant to applicable law, or that are expected to be generated, during the performance of Contract Work under this Contract.
  3. GENERATOR IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS. (1) Documentation related to hazardous waste generated solely by the physical actions of ship’s force or Navy employees on board the Vessel shall only bear a generator identification number issued to the Navy pursuant to applicable law. (2) Documentation related to hazardous waste generated solely by the physical actions of Seller’s personnel shall only bear a generator identification number issued to Seller pursuant to applicable law. Regardless of the presence of other materials in or on the shipboard systems or structures which may have qualified a waste stream as hazardous, where Seller performs Contract Work on a system or structure using materials (whether or not the use of such materials was specified by the Navy) which by themselves would cause the waste from such work to be a hazardous waste, documentation related to such waste shall only bear a generator identification number issued to Seller.

(4) Notwithstanding paragraphs (c)(1) - (c)(3) above, hazardous wastes are considered to be co-generated in cases where: (a) Seller merely drains a system and such drainage creates hazardous waste or (b) Seller performs Contract Work on a system or structure using materials which by themselves would not cause the waste from such work to be hazardous waste but such work nonetheless creates a hazardous waste. Documentation related to such co-generated waste shall bear a generator identification number in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (c)(3) above. (5) In the event of a failure by the parties to agree with the Government to the assignment of a generator identification number to any hazardous waste as set forth in paragraphs (c)(1) through (c)(4) above, the Government may direct which party or parties shall provide generator identification numbers for the waste and such number(s) shall be used on all required documentation. Any disagreement with this direction shall be a dispute within the meaning of clause of this Contract entitled “DISPUTES” (FAR 52.233-1). However, Seller shall not stop any work but shall continue with performance of all Contract Work under this Contract as specified in the “DISPUTES” clause set forth in Buyer’s subcontract with BIW and BIW’s Prime Contract. (6) Hazardous Waste Manifests.

Seller shall obtain concurrence with the categorization of the wastes under paragraphs (c)(3) and (c)(4) above before completion of the manifest. Manifests prepared pursuant to paragraph (c)(1) above shall be presented to Buyer for completion after the hazardous waste has been identified. (7) For purposes of paragraphs (c)(2) and (3) herein, if Seller, while performing work at a Government facility, cannot obtain a separate generator identification number from the Country or U.S. State in which the availability will be performed, Seller shall notify Buyer within 3 business days of receipt of written notification by the Country or U.S. State. After obtaining Buyer approval, Seller shall use the Navy generator identification number and insert in the remarks block Seller generator identification number issued for the site approved to be listed by Buyer. For purposes of paragraph (c)(1) herein, if the Contract Work is being performed at the non-Government facility and the Government cannot obtain a separate generator identification number from the Country or U.S. State, the Government shall use Seller generator identification number and shall cite in the remarks block a Navy generator identification number. In both instances described above, Seller shall prepare the Manifest described in paragraph (c)(6) above and present it to Buyer for completion.

The notice shall be written and shall state, on the basis of the most accurate information available to Seller: (i) The date, nature, and circumstances of the conduct regarded as a change; (ii) The name, function, and activity of the individuals directly involved in or knowledgeable about such conduct; (iii) The identification of any documents and the substance of any oral communication involved in such conduct; (iv) The particular elements of performance for which Seller might seek an equitable adjustment under this requirement, including: (1) What Vessel(s) have been or might be affected by the potential change; (2) To the extent practicable, labor or materials or both which have been or might be added, deleted, or wasted by the potential change; (3) To the extent practicable, Seller’s preliminary order of magnitude estimate of cost and schedule effect of the potential change; and (4) What and in what manner are the particular technical requirements or Contract requirements regarded as changed.
  3. Continued Performance. Except as provided in paragraph (f) below, following submission of notice, Seller shall take no action to implement a potential change until advised by Buyer in writing as provided in (d) below, unless the potential change was previously directed by Buyer in writing, in which case Seller shall conform therewith. Nothing in this paragraph (c) shall excuse Seller from proceeding with Contract Work other than implementation of the potential change or from proceeding in accordance with directions issued by Buyer.
  4. Buyer’s Response. Buyer shall promptly, and in any event within 21 calendar days after receipt of Seller’s notice, respond thereto in writing. In such response, Buyer shall either: (i) Confirm that the conduct of which Seller gave notice would constitute a change, and when necessary, direct the mode of further performance, or; (ii) Countermand any conduct regarded by Seller as a change, or; (iii) Deny that the conduct of which Seller gave notice would constitute a change and, when necessary, direct the mode of further performance, or; (iv) In the event Seller’s notice information is inadequate to make a decision under (i), (ii), or (iii), above, advise Seller what additional information is required. Failure of Buyer’s Procurement Representative to respond within the time required above shall be deemed a countermand under (d)(ii).
  5. Equitable Adjustments. Equitable adjustments for changes confirmed or countermanded by Buyer shall be made in accordance with the clause of this Contract entitled “CHANGES”, or any other requirement of this Contract which provides for an equitable adjustment.
  6. Special Procedures. Paragraph (c) provides that Seller is to take no action to implement a potential change pending Buyer’s Procurement Representative’s response to Seller’s notice of the potential change, except where specifically directed by Buyer’s Procurement Representative. In special situations, however, where (1) The circumstances do not allow sufficient time to notify Buyer’s Procurement Representative of the facts prior to the need to proceed with the Contract Work; and (2) The Contract Work must proceed to avoid hazards to personnel or property or to avoid additional cost to Buyer or the Government, and then Seller may proceed with work in accordance with the potential change. In such special situations, Seller shall advise Buyer’s Procurement Representative in writing within ten (10) days of the conduct giving rise to the potential change that Seller has proceeded and shall describe the nature of the special situation which required proceeding prior to notification. Within 30 calendar days of the conduct giving rise to the potential change, Seller shall provide notice as required in (b) above. Buyer’s Procurement Representative shall respond as set forth in (d) above. If Buyer’s Procurement Representative determines that the conduct constitutes a change and countermands it, Seller shall be entitled to an equitable adjustment for performance in accordance with that change prior to the countermand including the performance resulting from the countermand.
  7. When Seller identifies any conduct which may result in delay to delivery of Vessel(s), Seller shall promptly so inform Buyer’s Procurement Representative thereof prior to providing the notice required by paragraph (b) above.
  8. Despite good faith best efforts, occasions may arise in which Seller does not provide notice within the time periods specified in paragraphs (b) and (f) above. Accordingly, prior to the end of the first and third quarters of each calendar year through the period of performance of the Contract, beginning with TBD quarter of 201_, Seller shall deliver to Buyer an executed bilateral modification, in the format to be provided by Buyer, covering the 6 month period of time ending with the second and fourth quarters, respectively, of the preceding year, with such specific exceptions, if any, as are identified by Seller. If Seller cites specific exceptions to the release, Seller shall concurrently provide Buyer’s Procurement Representative with notice, containing the information set forth in paragraph (b) of this requirement, for each item excepted from the release. However, the release required by this requirement shall not make unallowable any costs which are otherwise allowable under any other requirement of this Contract. Within 60 days of receipt of the release, Buyer’s Procurement Representative shall sign and return a copy of the release to Seller. If Buyer’s Procurement Representative fails to execute and return the release within the required time, then the release shall be deemed to be void and of no effect for the period involved.
  9. If the release in accordance with paragraph (h) above is not provided to Buyer’s Procurement Representative by Seller in the time required, Buyer’s Procurement Representative may execute the release as set forth in Exhibit “A” and send it to Seller. If Seller fails to execute the release and return it to Buyer’s Procurement Representative (with any specific exceptions) within 60 days of receipt thereof, the required release shall then be deemed effective as if signed by Seller.

Exhibit “A” to the Requirement entitled “NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES”

This modification reflects the agreement of the parties to the mutual full and final releases for the consequences of that conduct (as conduct is defined in the requirement entitled “NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES”), described below, except the conduct identified in Attachment A hereto is excluded and not covered by the terms of this release. 1. Except for the conduct listed in Attachment A by either party, neither Seller nor Buyer shall be entitled to any equitable adjustment or to money damages and/or other relief for any conduct, as specified below. 2. In consideration of the foregoing the parties hereby agree to the following release:

  1. (a) Buyer, for itself, its assigns, vendors, suppliers, and contractors, hereby remises, releases, and forever discharges Seller, its officers, agents and employees from any and all entitlement of Buyer to equitable adjustment of the Contract cost and fee and delivery schedule due to conduct under this Contract, which occurred on or before TBD.
  2. (b) Seller, for itself, its successors, assigns, vendors, suppliers, and subcontractors, hereby remises, releases and forever discharges Buyer, BIW, the Government and their officers, agents and employees from (i) any and all entitlement of Seller to equitable adjustment of the Contract cost and fee and/or delivery schedule of this Contract or of any other contract with Buyer (with this or any other contractor) or any contract between Seller and any third party by reason of any conduct which increases Seller’s cost or time of performance of work under this Contract and meets the following conditions (1) known to Seller, (2) occurred on or before TBD, and (3) Seller failed to give notice prior to date of this release, and (ii) any and all liabilities to Seller for money damages and/or other relief for the impact of any such conduct, upon this Contract or any other contract with Buyer (with this or any other Seller) or any contract between Seller and any third party.

5252.243 9113 OTHER CHANGE PROPOSALS (CT) (JAN 1990) [Modified by Buyer]

  1. In addition to proposing engineering changes pursuant to other requirements of this Contract, and in addition to issuing changes pursuant to the clause of this Contract entitled “CHANGES”, Buyer may propose other changes within the general scope of this Contract as set forth below. Within 45 days from the date of receipt of any such proposed change, or within such further time as Buyer may allow, Seller shall submit the proposed scope of Contract Work, plans and sketches, and its estimate of: (A) the cost, (B) the weight and moment effect, (C) effect on delivery dates of the Vessel(s), and (D) status of Contract Work on the Vessels affected by the proposed change. The proposed scope of work and estimate of cost shall be in such form and supported by such reasonably detailed information as Buyer may require. Within 60 days from the date of receipt of Seller’s estimate, Seller agrees to either (A) enter into a supplemental agreement covering the estimate as submitted, or (B) if the estimate as submitted is not satisfactory to Buyer’s Procurement Representative, enter into negotiations in good faith leading to the execution of a bilateral supplemental agreement. In either case, the supplemental agreement shall cover an equitable adjustment in the Contract cost and fee including an equitable adjustment for the preparatory work set forth above, scope, and all other necessary equitable adjustments. Seller’s estimate referred to in this subparagraph shall be a firm offer for 60 days from and after the receipt thereof by Buyer’s Procurement Representative having cognizance thereof, unless such period of time is extended by mutual consent.
  2. Pending execution of a bilateral agreement or the direction of Buyer’s Procurement Representative pursuant to the “CHANGES” clause, Seller shall proceed diligently with performance without regard to the effect of any such proposed change.
  3. In the event that a change proposed by Buyer’s Procurement Representative is not incorporated into the Contract, the work done by Seller in preparing the estimate in accordance with subparagraph (a) above shall be treated as if ordered by Buyer under the “CHANGES” clause. Seller shall be entitled to an equitable adjustment in the Contract cost and fee for the effort required under subparagraph (a), but Seller shall not be entitled to any adjustment in delivery date. Failure to agree to such equitable adjustment in the Contract cost and fee shall be a dispute within the meaning of the clause of this Contract entitled “DISPUTES” (FAR 52.233-1).

      2. The loss, damage, destruction, or theft is the result of willful misconduct or lack of good faith on the part of Seller's managerial personnel. Seller's managerial personnel, in this clause, means Seller's directors, officers, managers, superintendents, or equivalent representatives who have supervision or direction of all or substantially all of Seller's business; all or substantially all of Seller's operation at any one plant or separate location; or a separate and complete major industrial operation.
      3. The Contracting Officer has, in writing, revoked the Government's assumption of risk for loss, damage, destruction, or theft, due to a determination under paragraph (g) of this clause that Seller's property management practices are inadequate, and/or present an undue risk to the Government, and Seller failed to take timely corrective action. If Seller can establish by clear and convincing evidence that the loss, damage, destruction, or theft of Government property occurred while Seller had adequate property management practices or the loss, damage, destruction, or theft of Government property did not result from Seller's failure to maintain adequate property management practices, Seller shall not be held liable.
    2. Seller shall take all reasonable actions necessary to protect the Government property from further loss, damage, destruction, or theft. Seller shall separate the damaged and undamaged Government property, place all the affected Government property in the best possible order, and take such other action as the Property Administrator directs.
    3. Seller shall do nothing to prejudice the Government's rights to recover against third parties for any loss, damage, destruction, or theft of Government property.
    4. Upon the request of the Contracting Officer, Seller shall, at the Government's expense, furnish to the Government all reasonable assistance and cooperation, including the prosecution of suit and the execution of instruments of assignment in favor of the Government in obtaining recovery.
  9. Equitable adjustment. Equitable adjustments under this clause shall be made in accordance with the procedures of the Changes clause. The right to an equitable adjustment shall be Seller's exclusive remedy and the Government shall not be liable to suit for breach of contract for the following:
    1. Any delay in delivery of Government-furnished property.
    2. Delivery of Government-furnished property in a condition not suitable for its intended use.
    3. An increase, decrease, or substitution of Government-furnished property.

      1. Seller with an approved scrap procedure.
        1. Seller may dispose of scrap resulting from production or testing under this Contract without Government approval. However, if the scrap requires demilitarization or is sensitive property, Seller shall submit the scrap on an inventory disposal schedule.
        2. For scrap from other than production or testing Seller may prepare scrap lists in lieu of inventory disposal schedules (provided such lists are consistent with the approved scrap procedures), except that inventory disposal schedules shall be submitted for scrap aircraft or aircraft parts and scrap that—
          1. Requires demilitarization;
          2. Is a classified item;
          3. Is generated from classified items;

    2. Predisposal requirements.
      1. Once Seller determines that Seller-acquired property is no longer needed for performance, Seller in the following order of priority—
        1. May contact the Contracting Officer if use of the property in the performance of other Government contracts is practical;
        2. May purchase the property at the acquisition cost; or
        3. Shall make reasonable efforts to return unused property to the appropriate supplier at fair market value (less, if applicable, a reasonable restocking fee that is consistent with the supplier's customary practices).
      2. Seller shall list, on Standard Form 1428, Inventory Disposal Schedule, property that was not used in the performance of other Government contracts under paragraph (j) (2) (i) (A) of this clause, property that was not purchased under paragraph (j) (2) (i) (B) of this clause, and property that could not be returned to a supplier under paragraph (j) (2) (i) (C) of this clause.
    3. Inventory disposal schedules.
      1. Seller shall use Standard Form 1428, Inventory Disposal Schedule, to identify—
        1. Government-furnished property that is no longer required for performance of this Contract, provided the terms of another Government contract do not require the Government to furnish that property for performance of this Contract;
        2. Seller-acquired property, to which the Government has obtained title under paragraph (e) of this clause, which is no longer required for performance of that Contract; and
        3. Termination inventory.
      2. Seller may annotate inventory disposal schedules to identify property Seller wishes to purchase from the Government.

    4. Submission requirements. Seller shall submit inventory disposal schedules to the Plant Clearance Officer no later than—
      1. 30-days following Seller's determination that a Government property item is no longer required for performance of this Contract;
      2. 60 days, or such longer period as may be approved by the Plant Clearance Officer, following completion of deliveries or performance; or
      3. 120 days, or such longer period as may be approved by the Termination Contracting Officer following termination in whole or in part.

      2. Require Seller to correct an inventory disposal schedule.
    6. Post submission adjustments. Seller shall notify the Plant Clearance Officer at least 10 working days in advance of its intent to remove an item from an approved inventory disposal schedule. Upon approval of the Plant Clearance Officer, or upon expiration of the notice period, Seller may make the necessary adjustments to the inventory schedule.
    7. Storage.
      1. Seller shall store the property identified on an inventory disposal schedule pending receipt of disposal instructions. The Government's failure to furnish disposal instructions within 120 days following acceptance of an inventory disposal schedule may entitle Seller to an equitable adjustment for costs incurred to store such property on or after the 121st day.
      2. Seller shall obtain the Plant Clearance Officer's approval to remove Government property from the premises where the property is currently located prior to receipt of final disposition instructions. If approval is granted, any costs incurred by Seller to transport or store the property shall not increase the price or fee of any Government contract. The storage facility shall be appropriate for assuring the property's physical safety and suitability for use. Approval does not relieve Seller of any liability for such property under this Contract.
    8. Disposition instructions.
      1. If the Government does not furnish disposition instructions to Seller within 45 days following acceptance of a scrap list, Seller may dispose of the listed scrap in accordance with Seller's approved scrap procedures.
      2. Seller shall prepare for shipment, deliver f.o.b. origin, or dispose of Seller inventory as directed by the Plant Clearance Officer. If not returned to the Government, Seller shall remove and destroy any markings identifying the property as U.S. Government-owned property prior to its disposal.
      3. The Contracting Officer may require Seller to demilitarize the property prior to shipment or disposal. In such cases, Seller may be entitled to an equitable adjustment under paragraph (i) of this clause.
    9. Disposal proceeds. As directed by the Contracting Officer, Seller shall credit the net proceeds from the disposal of Seller inventory to the Contract, or to the Treasury of the United States as miscellaneous receipts.
    10. Subcontractor inventory disposal schedules. Seller shall require its subcontractors to submit inventory disposal schedules to Seller in accordance with the requirements of paragraph (j) (4) of this clause.
  11. Abandonment of Government property.
    1. The Government shall not abandon sensitive Government property or termination inventory without Seller's written consent.
    2. The Government, upon notice to Seller, may abandon any nonsensitive Government property in place, at which time all obligations of the Government regarding such property shall cease.
    3. The Government has no obligation to restore or rehabilitate Seller's premises under any circumstances; however, if Government-furnished property is withdrawn or is unsuitable for the intended use, or if other Government property is substituted, then the equitable adjustment under paragraph (i) of this clause may properly include restoration or rehabilitation costs.
  12. Communication. All communications under this clause shall be in writing.
  13. Contracts outside the United States. If this Contract is to be performed outside of the United States and its outlying areas, the words “Government” and “Government-furnished” (wherever they appear in this clause) shall be construed as “United States Government” and “United States Government-furnished,” respectively.
