If Seller uses the Naval Supply System, it has elected to use the system for its own convenience to meet its obligations to perform the work under the Contract. The Naval Supply System is considered to be an alternate source or vendor of Seller furnished material; therefore materials, equipments, or other supplies ordered and/or obtained from the Naval Supply System are specifically not considered to be Buyer, Buyer’s customer or Government furnished material, but are considered to be Seller furnished material. Buyer, its customer and the Government make no representation as to the availability of materials, equipments, or other supplies for the performance of the Contract Work required under the Contract, nor shall unavailability, late delivery, delivery of nonconforming supplies, higher costs of the Naval Supply System (if any), or any failure of the Naval Supply System to meet the expectations or requirements of Seller constitute excusable delay or grounds for equitable or any other adjustment to the Contract or relief from the requirement to perform in accordance with the terms of the Contract.
- HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT. (a) Seller shall segregate and manage its hazardous waste in accordance with the requirements of the Resource Conservation And Recovery Act and all other federal and state laws and regulations.

- NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES (CT) (JAN 1983) [Modified by Buyer] (a) Definitions. As used in this requirement, the term “Buyer” does not include Buyer’s Contracting Representative whether or not such representative is acting within the scope of his authority nor does it include any other individuals or activities that in any way communicate with Seller. The term “conduct” includes both actions and failures to act, and includes the furnishing of, or the failure to furnish, any item under any requirement of the Contract. (b) Notice. The primary purpose of this requirement is to obtain prompt reporting of any conduct which Seller considers would constitute or would require a change to the Contract. The parties acknowledge that proper administration of the Contract requires that potential changes be identified and resolved as they arise. Buyer is under strict authorization work requirements in the subcontract with its customer, and the same true with the customer under its prime contract. Therefore, except for changes identified as such in writing and signed by Buyer’s Procurement Representative, Seller shall notify Buyer’s Procurement Representative of any conduct which Seller considers would constitute or would require a change to the Contract. Furthermore, Seller shall notify Buyer’s Procurement Representative of any conduct which Seller considers would constitute or would require a change to this Contract. Such notice shall be provided promptly, and in any event within twenty-five (25) calendar days from the date Seller identifies any such conduct. 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 ship(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 requirements regarded as changed. (c) 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 the Buyer in writing as provided in (d) below, unless the potential change was previously directed by the Buyer, in which case Seller shall conform therewith. Nothing in this paragraph (c) shall excuse Seller from proceeding with work other than implementation of the potential change or from proceeding in accordance with directions issued by the Buyer. (d) Buyer Response. The Buyer shall promptly, and in any event within thirty (30) calendar days after receipt of Notice, respond thereto in writing. In such response, the 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 (l), (ii) or (iii) above, advise Seller what additional information is required. Failure of the Buyer to respond within the time required above shall be deemed a countermand under (d)(ii). (e) Equitable Adjustments. Equitable adjustments for changes confirmed or countermanded by Buyer shall be made in accordance with the clause entitled “CHANGES”, or any other requirement of the Purchase Order which provides for an equitable adjustment. (f) Special Procedures. Paragraph (c) provides that Seller is to take no action to implement a potential change pending Buyer's Procurement Representative 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 work, and; (2) The work must proceed to avoid hazards to personnel or property or to avoid additional cost to Buyer, its customer or the Government, Seller may proceed with work in accordance with the potential change. In such special situations, Seller shall advise the Buyer in writing within seven (7) 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 thirty (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. 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 performance resulting from the countermand. (g) When Seller identifies any conduct which may result in delay to delivery of the ship(s), Seller shall promptly so inform Buyer’s Procurement Representative thereof prior to providing the notice required by paragraph (b) above. (h) 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 the fourth quarter of 2014, Seller shall deliver to Buyer’s Procurement Representative an executed bilateral Contract modification, in the format set forth in Exhibit “A” to this requirement, covering the six 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 the Contract. Within sixty (60) days of receipt of the release, Buyer shall sign and return a copy of the release to Seller. If Buyer 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. (i) If the release in accordance with paragraph (h) above is not provided to Buyer’s Procurement Representative by Seller in the time required, Buyer 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 the Government (with any specific exceptions) within forty five (45) 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, Seller, Buyer, or Buyer’s customer shall not 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: 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 the Contract, which occurred on or before [TBD]. b. Seller, for itself, its successors, assigns, vendors, suppliers, and subcontractors, hereby remises, releases and forever discharges Buyer and Buyer's customer and their directors, 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 the Contract or of any other purchase order or any other contract or any purchase order or contract between Seller and any third party by reason of any conduct which increases Seller's cost or time of performance of work under the Purchase Order 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 the Contract or any other purchase order or contract or any purchase order or contract between Seller and any third party.
- SECURITY. All employees and company representatives must adhere to the Buyer's and its customer’s local access procedure now in your possession. Upon request, Seller shall provide a copy of the latest access control procedure, highlighting the steps taken to preclude access by non-U.S. citizens to shop areas working CVN components. Buyer's security facility will forward under separate cover the control and format procedures for submitting access lists for processing. A communication will follow under separate cover from Buyer detailing task and detail breakdown and update requirements for scheduling input. Also included in this communication will be the requirements for Earned Value Management System (EVMS) reporting and updates.
- LIMITATIONS OF COST/LIMITATIONS OF FUNDS (NAVSEA) (SEP 1990). The clause entitled “Limitation of Cost” (FAR 52.232-20) or “Limitation of Funds” (FAR 52.232-22), as appropriate, shall apply separately and independently to each SUBCLIN.
- COST OF MONEY FOR FACILITIES CAPITAL. The Cost of Money for Facilities Capital is not a fee-bearing cost under the Purchase Order. However, such amount is included in the Total Estimated Cost for purpose of the “LIMITATIONS OF COST” clause.
- LIMITATIONS OF INDIRECT COST. (a) Pursuant to FAR 42.707, an indirect cost rate ceiling is incorporated into the Purchase Order. “Indirect Cost” is defined as set forth at FAR 31.001 and 31.203. “Indirect cost rate” is defined as set forth at FAR 42.700. For purposes of the Contract, dry dock rates (whether owned or rented by Seller), when used in the performance of the work scope of the Contract, are also considered rates subject to this clause. (b) Notwithstanding the clause entitled “ALLOWABLE COST AND PAYMENT” (FAR 52.216-7), the allowable indirect costs under the Contract shall be obtained by applying limitations on indirect cost rates to the allocation bases agreed upon by the parties, as specified below. (c) Allowability of costs and acceptability of a cost allocation method shall be determined in accordance with FAR subpart 31.2 in effect on the date of the Contract, as limited by the indirect cost rates established by this requirement. (d) Indirect cost rate(s) (and the allocation bases that each rate is applied to) as contained in Seller's accepted proposal shall be incorporated into the Contract schedule as the ceiling limitation rate(s) for the initial Seller fiscal year of performance. The bases to which the indirect cost rates apply shall be those contained in Seller's accepted proposal and hereby, incorporated into the Contract schedule, in accordance with Seller's accounting system upon which its proposal was based. (e) For each subsequent Seller fiscal year, Seller shall submit a proposal to the Government by way of Buyer’s customer or the Government’s designee to establish the limitation on indirect cost rate(s) for that fiscal year. Seller shall submit its proposal not later than 30 days prior to the start of a new year in order to permit time for review. After review, the Government’s Contracting Officer or his designee and Seller shall negotiate indirect rate(s) subject to this clause and execute a written agreement, which will be incorporated as part of the Purchase Order. When applicable, subsequent agreements shall specify any changes agreed to by the parties that affect the overhead base or pool, provided that no agreement shall be made which would increase the costs paid by Buyer under the Purchase Order. Pending establishment of indirect cost rates for any subsequent Seller fiscal year (or other period agreed to by the parties), Seller shall be reimbursed at the rate(s) established by the previous fiscal year. (f) Buyer will not be obligated to pay any additional amount should any final indirect incurred cost rates for any Seller fiscal year exceed the indirect rates determined under this clause. Incurred allowable indirect cost rates for each Seller year under the Purchase Order will be the lesser of: (1) the final agreed upon incurred indirect rates for each year or (2) the Purchase Order indirect ceiling limitations rates for each year applied to the applicable base for each rate. (g) The limitations on indirect cost rates shall not change any monetary ceiling, Purchase Order obligation or specific cost allowance or disallowance provided for in the Purchase Order. If facilities capital cost of money is proposed as an allowable cost, the rates proposed shall also be subject to this clause of the Purchase Order. (h) Notwithstanding any of the terms of this requirement, should Seller initiate a change to its accounting systems which would alter the composition of any overhead base or pool affected by this requirement, the Government Contracting Officer contract or his designee and Seller shall negotiate to determine the rate ceilings to be applied to the new overhead pools, provided that no agreement shall be made, which would increase the costs paid by the United States under the Purchase Order. (i) The limitations on the indirect cost rates shall apply to all work performed under the Purchase Order, including but not limited to all change orders and supplemental agreements, including changes due to growth, emergency and new work.
- ORGANIZATIONAL CONFLICT OF INTEREST (NAVSEA) (JUL 2000)
- “Organizational Conflict of Interest” means that because of other activities or relationships with other persons, a person is unable or potentially unable to render impartial assistance or advice to the Government, or the person's objectivity in performing the Contract Work is or might be otherwise impaired, or a person has an unfair competitive advantage. “Person” as used herein includes Corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, and other business enterprises.
- Seller warrants that to the best of its knowledge and belief, and except as otherwise set forth in the Contract, Seller does not have any organizational conflict of interest(s) as defined in paragraph (a).
- It is recognized that the effort to be performed by Seller under the Contract may create a potential organizational conflict of interest on the instant Contract or on a future acquisition. In order to avoid this potential conflict of interest, and at the same time to avoid prejudicing the best interest of the Government, the right of Seller to participate in future procurement of equipment and/or services that are the subject of any work under the Contract shall be limited as described below in accordance with the requirements of FAR 9.5.
- (1) Seller agrees that it shall not release, disclose, or use in any way that would permit or result in disclosure to any party outside the Government or Buyer's organization any information provided to Seller by the Government or Buyer or Buyer’s customer during or as a result of performance of the Contract. Such information includes, but is not limited to, information submitted to the Government or Buyer or Buyer’s customer on a confidential basis by other persons. Further, the prohibition against release of Government or Buyer provided information extends to cover such information whether or not in its original form, e.g., where the information has been included in Seller generated work or where it is discernible from materials incorporating or based upon such information. This prohibition shall not expire after a given period of time. (2) Seller agrees that it shall not release, disclose, or use in any way that would permit or result in disclosure to any party outside the Government or Buyer's or Buyer’s customer’s organization any information generated or derived during or as a result of performance of the Contract.

(3) The prohibitions contained in subparagraphs (dX1) and (d)(2) shall apply with equal force to any affiliate of Seller, any subcontractor, consultant, or employee of Seller, any joint venture involving Seller, any entity into or with which it may merge or affiliate, or any successor or assign of Seller. The terms of paragraph (1) of this Special Purchase Order Requirement relating to notification shall apply to any release of information in contravention of this paragraph (d).
- Seller further agrees that, during the performance of the Contract and for a period of three years after completion of performance of the Contract, Seller, any affiliate of Seller, any subcontractor, consultant, or employee of Seller, any joint venture involving Seller, any entity into or with which it may subsequently merge or affiliate, or any other successor or assign of Seller, shall not furnish to the United States Government, either as a prime contractor or as a subcontractor, or as a consultant to a prime contractor or subcontractor, any system, component or services which is the subject of the work to be performed under the Contract. This exclusion does not apply to any re-competition for those systems, components or services furnished pursuant to the Contract. As provided in FAR 9.505-2, if the Government procures the system, component, or services on the basis of work statements growing out of the effort performed under the Contract, from a source other than Seller, subcontractor, affiliate, or assign of either, during the course of performance of the Contract or before the three year period following completion of the Contract has lapsed, Seller may, with the authorization of the cognizant contracting officer, participate in a subsequent procurement for the same system, component, or service. In other words, Seller may be authorized to compete for procurement(s) for systems, components or services subsequent to an intervening procurement
- Seller agrees that, if after award, it discovers an actual or potential organizational conflict of interest, it shall make immediate and full disclosure in writing to Buyer. The notification shall include a description of the actual or potential organizational conflict of interest, a description of the action which Seller has taken or proposes to take to avoid, mitigate, or neutralize the conflict, and any other relevant information that would assist the Government in making a determination on this matter. Notwithstanding this notification, Buyer may terminate the Contract if determined to be in the best interest of Buyer or Buyer's customer and the Government.
- Notwithstanding paragraph (f) above, if Seller was aware, or should have been aware, of an organizational conflict of interest prior to the award of the Contract or becomes, or should become, aware of an organizational conflict of interest after award of the Contract and does not make an immediate and full disclosure in writing to the Buyer, the Buyer may terminate the Contract for default.
- If Seller takes any action prohibited by this requirement or fails to take action required by this requirement, Buyer may terminate the Contract for default.
- The decision from the Government as to the existence or nonexistence of an actual or potential organizational conflict of interest shall be final.
- Nothing in this requirement is intended to prohibit or preclude Seller from marketing or selling to the United States Government its product lines in existence on the effective date of the Contract; nor, shall this requirement preclude Seller from participating in any research and development or delivering any design development model or prototype of any such equipment. Additionally, sale of catalog or standard commercial items are exempt from this requirement.
- Seller shall promptly notify the Buyer, in writing, if it has been tasked to evaluate or advise the Government concerning its own products or activities or those of a competitor in order to ensure proper safeguards exist to guarantee objectivity and to protect the Government's interest.
- Seller shall include this requirement in subcontracts of any tier which involve access to information or situations/conditions covered by the preceding paragraphs, substituting “subcontractor” for “Seller” where appropriate.
- The rights and remedies described herein shall not be exclusive and are in addition to other rights and remedies provided by law or elsewhere included in the Contract.
- Compliance with this requirement is a material requirement of the Contract.
- “Organizational Conflict of Interest” means that because of other activities or relationships with other persons, a person is unable or potentially unable to render impartial assistance or advice to the Government, or the person's objectivity in performing the Contract Work is or might be otherwise impaired, or a person has an unfair competitive advantage. “Person” as used herein includes Corporations, partnerships, joint ventures, and other business enterprises.

(b) If, during preparation to perform any work under the Purchase Order, Seller identifies that mixed waste may be generated, Seller shall notify the Buyer as soon as practicable, but shall continue preparation to perform the work which may result in such generation. The notification should include type, amount, characteristics, and circumstances behind the potential generation of this mixed waste, including alternatives to generation of this mixed waste.
- NON-RADIOACTIVE PCB WASTES (a) Non-Radioactive PCB Waste is any waste that contains polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) subject to the disposal regulations of 40CFR761, promulgated under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Non-Radioactive PCB waste is defined as any item or material, containing concentrations of PCBs regulated for disposal that is removed from service for disposal. (b) Seller shall not employ equipment or material that are known to or suspected of containing PCBs in the performance of any work under the Purchase Order. If Seller does introduce PCBs into the work process, Seller shall be the Generator (as defined by TSCA) of the resulting PCB waste. (c) Except as provided in paragraph 2 of this clause, the Government agrees that the Navy is the Generator (as defined by TSCA) of any PCB which is produced in the course of performing work under the Contract by the servicing, repair, or removal of PCB waste from Government property. (d) Seller shall manage PCB Waste produced while performing Contract work in accordance with 40CFR761 as applicable. (e) To the extent practical, materials shall not be mixed or adulterated with products that could cause the resulting waste to be subject to the requirements of TSCA. (f) The estimated quantity and the locations of any PCBs which might be encountered in the performance of any work under the Purchase Order will be identified and quantified in accordance with Section C - General Requirements “Asbestos, Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) and Other Regulated Substances” and “Hazardous Waste and PCB Waste”, including the Government providing documentation of potential PCB Waste to Seller as early as practicable. Other information relating to handling and disposition of PCBs or PCB Wastes, such as copies of NAVSEA PCB Advisories and documentation of experience of other shipyards relating to PCBs shall be provided to Seller in a timely manner. (g) If during the preparation to perform any work under the Purchase Order, Seller identifies that PCB Waste may be generated, Seller shall notify the Buyer as soon as practicable but shall continue preparation to perform work which may result in that generation and shall, if practicable, disassemble the materials to minimize the amount of PCB Waste generated. The notification should include type, amount, characteristics, and circumstances behind the potential generation of this PCB Waste, including alternatives to its generation. (h) For purposes of the Purchase Order, generation of P03 Waste occurs when an item containing PCBs is removed from service without intent to reuse it. Upon receipt of notification that PCB Waste has been, or will be generated, Buyer and Seller agree to cooperate to assure PCB Wastes are removed from Seller's premises no later than thirty days of its generation. Seller shall prepare such waste in accordance with the “MANAGEMENT AND DISPOSAL OF HAZARDOUS WASTE” clause of the Purchase Order. (i) All documentation related to Navy-generated PCB Waste produced under the Purchase Order shall only bear the generic Generator Identification Number of 40CFR761.205(c) (I), unless applicable state law contains additional requirements under its authority to regulate hazardous wastes, in which case Seller shall also comply with the state requirements. (j) The intent of this clause is to ensure that Seller does not assume any responsibilities for PCB waste management that would subject it to the requirements of a Commercial Storer of PCB Waste as defined in 40CFR761. However, if management of the PCB Waste in accordance with this clause results in Seller becoming a Commercial Storer of PCB Waste (as defined in 40CFR761) or suffering any additional cost and/or schedule impact to Seller, Seller shall be entitled to an equitable adjustment in accordance with the “Changes” clause. (k) Contract Adjustment - The Purchase Order shall be subject to adjustment pursuant to Section C - General Requirement “Hazardous Waste and PCB Waste”.
- POST SEA TRIAL INCOMPLETE WORK ITEMS Seller shall schedule Seller responsible items planned for post sea trial accomplishment in accordance with standard practices. Seller shall provide a list of planned Seller-responsible post sea trial work and sea trial deficiencies (incomplete work list) as soon as practical after sea trial completion. Accomplishment of planned work and correction of deficiencies will be planned/coordinated with Buyer and Ship's Force. Estimated completion dates for significant items (as mutually agreed upon by Seller and Buyer will be provided to Buyer.
- TESTS AND TRIALS During the conduct of required tests and trials, the vessel shall be under the control of the vessel's Commander and crew with representatives of Seller, Buyer, Buyer’s customer and the Government on board to determine whether or not the work done by Seller has been satisfactorily performed. Seller shall provide and install all fittings and appliances which may be necessary for dock and sea trials to enable the representatives of Buyer, its customer and Government to determine whether the requirements of the Contract have been met, and Seller shall install and remove instruments and apparatus furnished by the Government or Buyer or its customer for such trials, as required by the specifications.
- DOCK TRIALS AND FAST CRUISE (a) Dock Trials. The purpose of this trial is to conduct preliminary tests necessary to ensure that the ship is ready for operating at sea. Ship's personnel will conduct all tests and perform all operational functions; however, Seller personnel will observe tests, record data, and make minor repairs and adjustments as necessary. The dock trial shall be scheduled in accordance with work items. Seller personnel are not to interfere with functions of ship's personnel. (b) Fast Cruise. The “fast cruise” is a simulated underway period. The purpose of fast cruise is to test to the maximum extent possible, the ship's material and operational readiness condition. This includes normal watch stations and engineering casualty control procedures. Seller personnel will not be allowed onboard during this period unless specifically requested by Buyer. Fast cruise shall be scheduled after dock trials and prior to sea trials as cited in Specifications.
- OTHER CHANGE PROPOSALS (a) Buyer, in addition to proposing engineering changes pursuant to other requirements of the Contract, and in addition to issuing changes pursuant to the clause of the Contract, may propose other changes within the general scope of the Contract as set forth below. Within thirty (30) 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 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 work on the vessels affected by the proposed change.

Within seventy five (75) days from the date of receipt of Seller's estimate, the Buyer 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, 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 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 seventy five (75) days from and after the receipt thereof by the Buyer unless such period of time is extended by mutual consent.
(b) Pending execution of a bilateral agreement or the direction of Buyer, Seller shall proceed diligently with contract performance without regard to the effect of any such proposed change. (c) In the event that a change proposed by Buyer 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. Seller shall be entitled to an equitable adjustment in the Contract cost for the effort required under subparagraph (a), but Seller shall not be entitled to any adjustment in delivery date.
- GROWTH AND NEW WORK (SEP 1990) (NAVSEA 5252.217-9107) (Modified by Buyer) (a) It is Buyer’s intention to ensure that, where it is determined by its customer’s customer (the Government) that the work will be performed by the private sector, any growth or new work identified during the overhaul will be awarded to Seller if a fair and reasonable price can be negotiated for such work. If a fair and reasonable price cannot be negotiated for the above actions, the parties acknowledge that the Government may, at its election, pursue any or all of the following courses of action: (1) defer the work to a repair period after completion of this Contract; (2) Accomplish the work using Government employees during the original overhaul period. (Government employees may engage in and complete the assigned work while the ship is undergoing overhaul in Buyer’s customer’s facility or Buyer’s facility pursuant to the “Access to Vessel” clause (DFARS 252.217.7011; and/or (3) Conduct a separate competitive procurement for growth or new work. Performance will be during the original overhaul period. Seller may be given the opportunity to bid on the growth or new work.
- DOCUMENTATION OF REQUESTS FOR EQUITABLE ADJUSTMENT (APR 1999) (NAVSEA 5252.233-9103) [Modified by Buyer] (a) The term “change” includes not only a change that is made pursuant to a written order designated as a “change order” but also (1) an engineering change proposed by the Government or by Seller; and (2) Any act or omission to act on the part of the Government in respect of which a request is made for an equitable adjustment. (b) Whenever Seller requests or proposes an equitable adjustment of $100,000 or more per vessel in respect of a change made pursuant to a written order designated as a “change order” or in respect to a proposed engineering change and whenever Seller requests an equitable adjustment in any amount in respect to any other act or omission to act on the part of Buyer, Buyer’s customer or the Government, the proposal supporting such request shall contain the following information for each individual item or element of the request: (1) A description (i) of the work required by the Contract before the change, which has been deleted by the change, and (ii) of the work deleted by the change which already has been completed. The description is to include a list of components, equipment, and other identifiable property involved. Also, the status of manufacture, procurement, or installation of such property is to be indicated. Separate description is to be furnished for design and production work. Items of raw material, purchased parts, components and other identifiable hardware, which are made excess by the change and which are not to be retained by Seller, are to be listed for later disposition; (2) Description of work necessary to undo work already completed which has been deleted by the change; (3) Description of work not required by the terms hereof before the change, which is substituted or added by the change. A list of components and equipment (not bulk materials or items) involved should be included.

(c) Each proposal in excess of $100,000 submitted in support of a claim for equitable adjustment under any requirement of this Contract shall, in addition to the information required by paragraph (b) hereof, contain such information as the Government may require with respect to each individual claim item. (d) It is recognized that individual claims for equitable adjustment may not include all of the factors listed in paragraph (b) above. Accordingly, Seller is required to set forth in its proposal information only with respect to those factors which are comprehended in the individual claim for equitable adjustment. In any event, the information furnished hereunder shall be in sufficient detail to permit the Government to cross-reference the claimed increased costs, or delay in delivery, or both, as appropriate, submitted pursuant to paragraph (c) of this requirement, with the information submitted pursuant to paragraph (b) hereof.
- ADDITIONAL PROVISIONS RELATING TO GOVERNMENT PROPERTY (NAVSEA) (SEP 2009).

- EXTENSION OF COMMERCIAL WARRANTY (NAVSEA) (NOV 1996) [Modified by Buyer] Seller shall extend to the Government the full coverage of any standard commercial warranty that Seller normally offers in a similar commercial sale for the Contract Work specified in each CLIN, provided that such warranty is available at no additional cost. Seller shall provide a copy of its standard commercial warranty upon redelivery of the vessel or upon completion of the POLIN. The standard commercial warranty period shall begin upon the final acceptance of the vessel or POLIN. Acceptance of the standard commercial warranty does not waive any right under the “inspection” clause, nor does it limit any rights with regard to other terms and conditions of this Contract.
- GOVERNMENT SURPLUS PROPERTY (NAVSEA) (SEP 1990). No former Government surplus property or residual inventory resulting from terminated Government contracts shall be furnished under this Contract unless (i) such property is identified in the special contract requirements or (ii) is approved in writing by Buyer. Notwithstanding any such identification in the special contract requirements or approval by Buyer, Seller agrees all items or components described in this requirement shall comply in all respects with the Contract specifications.
- SELLER SAFETY AND HEALTH REQUIREMENTS FOR ACCESS TO NAVSEA/PEO SITE (NAVSEA) (MAY 2012). (a) Seller personnel shall comply with all badging and security procedures required to gain access to any NAVSEA/PEO site. Contact Buyer for specific requirements. (b) Seller is required to adhere to the requirements of 29 CFR 1910, 29 CFR 1926 and applicable state and local requirements while in NAVSEA/PEO Government spaces. If Seller’s personnel are injured on site, Seller shall notify SEA 04RS, Safety Office via Buyer. (c) NAVSEA/PEO site facilities are low to mid-rise buildings with elevators and a contractor operated restaurant facility in the building 197. Utility areas, electrical/phone closets and the roof are generally secured areas with restricted access. NAVSEA/PEO HQ sites generally exhibit low hazards with no personal protection equipment (PPE) requirements. Hazards are those typically found in an office environment. Slips, trips and falls on wet/icy/surfaces, pest control, and ergonomic concerns are the primary hazards. It is expected that Seller’s employees will have received training from the employer on hazards associated with the areas in which they will be working and know what to do in order to protect themselves. (d) Seller’s employees who perform work within NAVSEA/PEO Government spaces in excess of 1,000 hours per calendar quarter during a calendar year shall submit the data elements on OSHA Form 300A, summary of work related injuries and illnesses, for those employees, with the information to be sent to SEA 04RS via the Contracting Representative or through Buyer by 15 January for the previous calendar year, even if no work related injuries or illnesses occurred. (e) Any Seller employee exhibiting unsafe behavior may be removed from the NAVSEA/PEO site. Such removal shall not relieve Seller from meeting its Contract obligations and shall not be considered an excusable delay as defined in FAR 52.249-14.

- USE OF THE NAVY SUPPLY SYSTEM/STANDARD LOGISTICS SYSTEM – OBJECTIVE QUALITY EVIDENCE (DOCUMENTATION) AND NATIONAL STOCK NUMBER (NSN) EFFECTIVE ISSUE OF SPECIFICATIONS (REVISION 3/9/2012). 1. Navy Supply System – Non-Nuclear Level 1 Controlled Material: A. Specification Effectivity Revision Issue for NSN – I. The specification revision of National Stock Numbered Non-Nuclear Level 1 Material (Special Material Identification Code of L1, S1 or C1) that is specifically authorized by Allowance Parts List (APL), or other Navy approved document such as maintenance standard or drawing is considered acceptable for the cited end use application. II. Where no APL or documentation exists to authorize the use of a specific Non-Nuclear Level 1 NSN in an application, the technical description of the NSN in FEDLOG, Haystack or equivalent Navy recognized source must be reviewed to ensure that the NSN fully meets the requirements of the intended end use. Specification effectivity may be determined when specifically cited in FEDLOG, Haystack or equivalent Navy recognized source or by the procuring activity. III. Where no specification effectivity can be determined, Seller shall use the appropriate process to ensure the specification effectivity and technical requirements of the Contract are met. B. Objective Quality Evidence – I. National Stock Number (NSN) material with a SMIC of L1, S1 or C1 contained in the Navy Supply System meet all objective quality evidence (OQE) documentation requirements of NAVSEA 0948-LP-045-7010 and its intended end-use applications. Seller is required to receipt-inspect stock system furnished Level 1 material in accordance with NAVSEA 0948-LP-045-7010 procedures for pre-certified material. II. It is understood that pre-approved OQE (i.e., production Level 3 drawings, welding/NDT procedures, 1st article/pre-production test reports, H.I. shock/vibration test reports, certificates for Level 1 controlled material, etc.), to include the provision of complete and accurate technical manuals, will not be supplied with Navy Supply System Material. This information will be maintained by the Navy Supply System. Therefore, the Government shall not require Seller to obtain such OQE for Level 1 material acquired via the MILSTRIP process and Seller may identify the NSN and the Navy Stock System as the source of supply for the material in order to satisfy contractually required OQE deliverables. 2. Navy Supply System – Non-Nuclear standard material: A. Specification Effectivity Revision Issue for NSN – I. The specification revision of National Stock Numbered Non-Nuclear Standard Material that is specifically authorized by Allowance Parts List (APL), or other Navy approved document such as maintenance standard or drawing is considered acceptable for the cited end-use application. II. Where no APL or documentation exists to authorize the use of a specific Non-Nuclear NSN in an application, the technical description of the NSN in FEDLOG, Haystack or equivalent Navy recognized source must be reviewed to ensure that the NSN fully meets the requirements of the intended end use. Specification effectivity may be determined when specifically cited in FEDLOG, Haystack or equivalent Navy recognized source or by the procuring activity. Where the specification effectivity is not specifically cited for the NSN, the revision of the Navy Stock System material may be considered to be the specification revision in effect at the time of the last material procurement by the Navy Stock System. III. Where no specification effectivity can be determined, Seller shall use the appropriate process to ensure that the specification effectivity and technical requirements of the Contract are met. B. Objective Quality Evidence – “Non-Controlled” National Stock Number (NSN) material contained in the Navy Supply System shall be considered as having been procured in accordance with the NSN’s material specification document requirements, as identified in FEDLOG, Haystack or equivalent Navy recognized data source. Seller is required to receipt-inspect this material, in accordance with approved procedures, to ensure material meets required procurement specifications. II. When specifically required by the applicable procurement specifications, standard material has been procured from a qualified vendor and has received the required pre-production testing such as first article testing and H.I. shock/vibration qualifications. This OQE, to include provision of complete and accurate technical manuals, will not be supplied with the NSN material. However, NNS will ensure various Navy maintenance databases (i.e., Technical Document Management Information System (TDMIS)) are updated with applicable tech manual information. Clarification – any items procured from the Navy and Defense Supply Systems are deemed to comply with the following clauses: 252.225-7015 (Restriction on Acquisition of Hand or Measuring Tools), 252.225-7019 (Restriction on Acquisition of Anchor and Mooring Chain), 252.225-7025 (Restriction on Acquisition of Forgings), 252.225-7030 (Restriction on Acquisition of Carbon, Alloy, and Armor Steel), 252.225-7038 (Restriction on Acquisition of Air Circuit Breakers).
