5252.243-9105 NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES (CT) (JAN 1983) [Modified by Buyer]

  1. Definitions. As used in this requirement, the term “Contracting Officer” does not include any representative of the Government’s Contracting Officer or Buyer’s Procurement 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. As used in this requirement, 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 this Contract.
  2. 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 this Contract. The parties acknowledge that proper administration of this Contract requires that potential changes be identified and resolved as they arise. Buyer is under strict authorized work requirements in the Prime Contract. Therefore, except for changes identified as such in writing and signed by Buyer, Seller not authorized to proceed without an approved change order from Buyer’s Procurement Representative. 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 30 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 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 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 the ship(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 (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.

    2. Seller, for itself, its successors, assigns, vendors, suppliers, and subcontractors, hereby remises, releases and forever discharges Buyer, its 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.

  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.

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).

The Seller shall not proceed with the work affected by the technical instruction unless and until the Seller is notified by the Buyer’s Procurement Representative.

52.215-19 NOTIFICATION OF OWNERSHIP CHANGES (OCT 1997)

  1. The Seller shall make the following notifications in writing: (1) When the Seller becomes aware that a change in its ownership has occurred, or is certain to occur, that could result in changes in the valuation of its capitalized assets in the accounting records, the Seller shall within 30 days, notify the Buyer, who is then obligated to notify the Administrative Contracting Officer (ACO). (2) The Seller shall, within 30 days, notify the Buyer, who is obligated to notify the ACO, whenever changes to asset valuations or any other cost changes have occurred or are certain to occur as a result of a change in ownership.
  2. The Seller shall – (1) Maintain current, accurate, and complete inventory records of assets and their costs; (2) Provide the Buyer, who is obligated to provide the ACO or his/her designated representative ready access to the records upon request; (3) Ensure that all individuals and grouped assets, their capitalized values, accumulated depreciation or amortization, and remaining useful lives are identified accurately before and after each of the Seller’s ownership changes; and (4) Retain and continue to maintain depreciation and amortization schedules based on the asset records maintained before each Seller ownership change.

    The Seller shall include the substance of this clause in all subcontractors under this Contract that meet the applicability requirements of FAR 15.408(k).

52.243-7 NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES (APR 1984) [Modified by NASSCO]

  1. Definitions.
    "Contracting Officer," as used in this clause, does not include any representative of the Contracting Officer. "Specifically authorized
    representative (SAR)," as used in this clause, means any person the Contracting Officer has so designated by written notice (a copy of
    which shall be provided to the Seller) which shall refer to this subparagraph and shall be issued to the designated representative before the
    SAR exercises such authority.
  2. Notice. The primary purpose of this clause is to obtain prompt reporting of NASSCO or Government conduct that the Seller considers to constitute a change to this Contract. Except for changes identified as such in writing and signed by NASSCO’s Procurement Representative, the Seller shall notify NASSCO’s Procurement Representative in writing, within 5 calendar days from the date that the Seller identifies any NASSCO or Government conduct (including actions, inactions, and written or oral communications) that the Seller regards as a change to the Contract terms and conditions. On the basis of the most accurate information available to the Seller, the notice shall state--
    1. The date, nature, and circumstances of the conduct regarded as a change;
    2. The name, function, and activity of each NASSCO or Government individual and Seller official or employee involved in or knowledgeable about such conduct;
    3. The identification of any documents and the substance of any oral communication involved in such conduct;
    4. In the instance of alleged acceleration of scheduled performance or delivery, the basis upon which it arose;
    5. The particular elements of Contract performance for which the Seller may seek an equitable adjustment under this clause, including--
      1. What Contract line items have been or may be affected by the alleged change;
      2. What labor or materials or both have been or may be added, deleted, or wasted by the alleged change;
      3. To the extent practicable, what delay and disruption in the manner and sequence of performance and effect on continued performance have been or may be caused by the alleged change;
      4. What adjustments to Contract Price, delivery schedule, and other provisions affected by the alleged change are estimated; and
    6. The Seller's estimate of the time by which NASSCO must respond to the Seller's notice to minimize cost, delay or disruption of performance.
  3. Continued performance. Following submission of the notice required by (b) above, the Seller shall diligently continue performance of this Contract to the maximum extent possible in accordance with its terms and conditions as construed by the Seller, unless the notice reports a direction of NASSCO’s Procurement Representative, in either of which events the Seller shall continue performance; provided, however, that if the Seller regards the direction or communication as a change as described in (b) above, notice shall be given in the manner provided. All directions, communications, interpretations, orders and similar actions of NASSCO’s Procurement Representative shall be reduced to writing and copies furnished to the Seller. NASSCO’s Procurement Representative shall countermand any action which exceeds the authority of the SAR.
  4. NASSCO response. NASSCO’s Procurement Representative shall promptly, within 30 calendar days after receipt of notice, respond to the notice in writing. In responding, NASSCO’s Procurement Representative shall either--
    1. Confirm that the conduct of which the Seller gave notice constitutes a change and when necessary direct the mode of further performance;
    2. Countermand any communication regarded as a change;
    3. Deny that the conduct of which the Seller gave notice constitutes a change and when necessary direct the mode of further performance; or
    4. In the event the Seller's notice information is inadequate to make a decision under (1), (2), or (3) above, advise the Seller what additional information is required, and establish the date by which it should be furnished and the date thereafter by which NASSCO’s Procurement Representative will respond.
  5. Equitable adjustments.
    1. If NASSCO’s Procurement Representative confirms that NASSCO or Government conduct effected a change as alleged by the Seller, and the conduct causes an increase or decrease in the Seller's cost of, or the time required for, performance of any part of the work under this Contract, whether changed or not changed by such conduct, an equitable adjustment shall be made--
      1. In the Contract Price or delivery schedule or both; and
      2. In such other provisions of the Contract as may be affected.
    2. The Contract shall be modified in writing accordingly. In the case of drawings, designs or specifications which are defective and for which NASSCO or the Government is responsible, the equitable adjustment shall include the cost and time extension for delay reasonably incurred by the Seller in attempting to comply with the defective drawings, designs or Specifications before the Seller identified, or reasonably should have identified, such defect. When the cost of property made obsolete or excess as a result of a change confirmed by NASSCO’s Procurement Representative under this clause is included in the equitable adjustment, NASSCO’s Procurement Representative shall have the right to prescribe the manner of disposition of the property. The equitable adjustment shall not include increased costs or time extensions for delay resulting from the Seller's failure to provide notice or to continue performance as provided, respectively, in (b) and (c) above.

Note: The phrases “Contract Price” and “cost” wherever they appear in the clause, may be appropriately modified to apply to cost-reimbursement or incentive contracts, or to combinations thereof.
