- Guarantee (Additional Provisions Relating to Correction of Defects (NAVSEA) (OCT 1990))
- Seller guarantees that the Contract Work will be free from defects in material, workmanship and design and will conform to this Contract for a period of sixty (60) days after redelivery of the Vessel by Buyer to the Government (the "Guarantee Period"). With respect to any Contract Work identified as incomplete at the time of redelivery, the Guarantee Period shall run from the date such Contract Work is completed.
- If at any time during the Guarantee Period, any failure of the Contract Work to comply with this Contract or any defect or deficiency in the Contract Work shall be discovered, Seller shall repair or replace such Contract Work to the satisfaction of Buyer at Seller's expense, including incidental costs, such as travel and/or transportation costs.

The standard commercial warranty period shall begin upon expiration of the Guarantee Period for the applicable material or software. Acceptance of the standard commercial warranty does not waive the Government’s or Buyer’s rights under the Inspection and Acceptance provisions of this Contract, nor does it limit Buyer’s rights with regard to other terms and conditions of this Contract. In the event of a conflict, the terms and conditions of this Contract shall take precedence over the standard commercial warranty.

PART C: PRIME CONTRACT CLAUSES
The following clauses are flowed down pursuant to the requirements of the Prime Contract.
- Access to Proprietary Data or Computer Software (NAVSEA) (JUN 1994)
- 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, (i) access to, and use of, the proprietary data or software exclusively for the purposes of performance of the work required by this Contract, and (ii) safeguards to protect such data or software from unauthorized use or disclosure for so long as the data or software remains proprietary. In addition, the agreement shall not impose any limitation upon the Government or Buyer or their employees with respect to such data or software. A copy of the executed agreement shall be provided to the Government Contracting Officer via Buyer. Buyer may unilaterally modify this Contract to list those third parties with which Seller has agreement(s).
- Seller agrees to: (i) indoctrinate its personnel who will have access to the data or software as to the restrictions under which access is granted; (ii) not disclose the data or software to another party or other Seller personnel except as authorized by the Government Contracting Officer; (iii) not engage in any other action, venture, or employment wherein this information will be used, other than under this Contract, in any manner inconsistent with the spirit and intent of this requirement; (iv) not disclose the data or software to any other party, including, but not limited to, joint venturer, affiliate, successor, or assign of Seller; and (v) reproduce the restrictive stamp, marking, or legend on each use of the data or software whether in whole or in part.
- The restrictions on use and disclosure of the data and software described above also apply to such information received from the Government or Buyer through any means to which Seller has access in the performance of this Contract that contains proprietary or other restrictive markings.
- Seller agrees that it will promptly notify the Government Contracting Officer via Buyer of any attempt by an individual, company, or Government or Buyer representative not directly involved in the effort to be performed under this Contract to gain access to such proprietary information.

Seller warrants that any such computer software and/or computer database will be free of viruses when delivered.
- Seller agrees to test any computer software and/or computer database(s) received from the Government or Buyer for viruses prior to use under this Contract.
- Unless otherwise agreed in writing, any license agreement governing the use of any computer software to be delivered as a result of this Contract must be paid-up and perpetual, or so nearly perpetual as to allow the use of the computer software or computer data base with the equipment for which it is obtained, or any replacement equipment, for so long as such equipment is used. Otherwise, the computer software or computer database does not meet the minimum functional requirements of this Contract. In the event that there is any routine to disable the computer software or computer database after the software is developed for or delivered to the Government or Buyer, that routine shall not disable the computer software or computer database until at least twenty-five (25) calendar years after the delivery date of the affected computer software or computer database to the Government or Buyer.
- 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 or Buyer from making copies. This does not prohibit license agreements from specifying the maximum amount of copies that can be made.
- Delivery by Seller to the Government or Buyer of certain 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 and Buyer 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.
- Any limited rights legends or other allowed legends placed by Seller on technical data or other data delivered in digital form shall be digitally included on the same media as the digital-form data and must be associated with the corresponding digital-form technical data to which the legends apply to the extent possible.

- Non-Smoking Policy (JAN 2005)
In light of the Navy’s policy regarding smoke-free facilities, the entire Vessel, topside and below decks, is to be considered a "No Smoking Area" unless otherwise indicated by shipboard policy.
- 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 this Contract, Seller does not have any organizational conflict of interest(s) as defined in paragraph (a).
- It is recognized that the Contract Work 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 this Contract shall be limited as described below in accordance with the requirements of FAR 9.5.
- 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 any information provided to Seller by the Government during or as a result of performance of this Contract. Such information includes, but is not limited to, information submitted to the Government on a confidential basis by other persons. Further, the prohibition against release of Government 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.
- 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 any information generated or derived during or as a result of performance of this Contract. This prohibition shall expire after a period of three (3) years after completion of performance of this Contract.
- The prohibitions contained in subparagraphs (d)(i) and (d)(ii) 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 (f) of this Special Contract 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 this Contract and for a period of three (3) years after completion of performance of this 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 Government, either as a subcontractor or a consultant to a prime contractor or subcontractor, any system, component or services which is the subject of the work to be performed under this Contract. This exclusion does not apply to any recompetition for those systems, components or services furnished pursuant to this 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 this Contract, from a source other than Seller, subcontractor, affiliate, or assign of either, during the course of performance of this Contract or before the three-year period following completion of this Contract has lapsed, Seller may, with the authorization of the cognizant Government 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 the Government Contracting Officer via 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 Contracting Officer in making a determination on this matter. Notwithstanding this notification, the Government and Buyer may terminate this Contract for the convenience of the Government if determined to be in the best interest of the Government.
- Notwithstanding subparagraph (f) above, if Seller was aware, or should have been aware, of an organizational conflict of interest prior to the award of this Contract or becomes, or should become, aware of an organizational conflict of interest after award of this Contract and does not make an immediate and full disclosure in writing to the Government Contracting Officer via Buyer, the Government and Buyer may terminate this Contract for default.
- If Seller takes any action prohibited by this requirement or fails to take action required by this requirement, the Government and Buyer may terminate this Contract for default.
- The Government Contracting Officer's decision 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 Government its product lines in existence on the effective date of this 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 Government Contracting Officer via 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.
- 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 this Contract.
- Compliance with this requirement is a material requirement of this Contract.
- Protection of the Vessel (NAVSEA) (SEP 1990)
Seller shall exercise reasonable care, as agreed upon with Buyer, to protect the Vessel from fire and shall maintain a system of inspection over the activities of its welders, burners, riveters, painters, pipe fitters, and similar workers, and of its suppliers, particularly where such activities are undertaken in the vicinity of the Vessel's magazines, fuel oil tanks, or storage rooms containing inflammable materials. All ammunition, fuel oil, motor fuels, and cleaning fluids shall have been off-loaded and the tanks cleaned, except as may be mutually agreed between Buyer and Seller prior to performance of any Contract Work by Seller. All tanks under alteration or repair shall be cleaned, washed, and steamed out or otherwise made safe to the extent necessary, and Seller shall furnish Buyer with a "Gas Chemists' Certificate" before any hot work is performed.
- Qualifications of Contractor Nondestructive Testing (NDT) Personnel (NAVSEA) (APR 2004)
- Seller and any Nondestructive Testing (NDT) subcontractor shall utilize for the performance of required NDT, only Level I, II and III personnel currently certified inn accordance with NAVSEA Technical Publication T9074-AS-GIB-010/271, ACN Notice 1 of 16 February 1999. Documentation pertaining to the qualification and certification of NDT personnel shall be made available to Buyer for review upon request.
- These requirements do not apply with respect to nuclear propulsion plant systems and other matters under the technical cognizance of NAVSEA (SEA 08). Because of health and safety considerations, such matters will continue to be handled by NAVSEA (SEA 08).
- Small Business Subcontracting by Large Business Sellers
- The Prime Contract requires that Buyer subcontract to small businesses, either directly or indirectly, a percentage of direct costs related to Prime Contract production work. This requirement may be met at any subcontracting tier.
- To facilitate Buyer’s meeting the requirement of subparagraph (a), above, large business Sellers shall identify to Buyer the number of dollars that Seller pays to small businesses for services or supplies, and in each case, Seller shall identify any special category of the small business, i.e., veteran-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned, disadvantaged, women-owned, or HUBZone small business.
- Buyer cannot "tier" profit or fee on any major subcontract (purchase order). "Tiering" is the adding of profit or fee to Seller’s profit or fee. A "major subcontract" is a subcontract (purchase order) held by a large business Seller. There is one exception to this tiering prohibition, and that is when a large business Seller is awarded a fixed-price subcontract (purchase order) via competition. Therefore, large business Sellers shall identify the amount of profit or fee that is included in their proposals to Buyer if the subcontract (purchase order) was not competitively bid.
- Travel Costs (NAVSEA) (MAR 2001)
- Seller shall not charge, and Buyer shall not pay, as an allowable cost under this Contract, any man-hour costs (whether straight-time or overtime) for Seller personnel or Seller’s subcontractor personnel traveling to or from work sites, including travel to work sites other than Seller’s facility for performance of this Contract.
- Workers being paid under this Contract, as Seller personnel or Seller’s subcontractor personnel, shall complete a full shift at the worksite, and no compensation will be paid for travel time before or after the shift.
- This requirement pertains only to payments for travel time before and after these workers’ regular shifts and does not apply to legitimate travel costs incurred during normal working hours, provided that those costs are otherwise reasonable, allocable and allowable. This requirement does not apply to manufacturer’s representatives of Original Equipment Manufacturer ("OEM") representatives when specifically required by Buyer or Government work specifications./font>
- Additionally, Seller shall not charge, and Buyer shall not pay, any transportation costs under this Contract associated with transporting Seller or Seller's subcontractor personnel between Seller's facility (or Seller's subcontractor's facility) and any other work site to perform scheduled ship availability or inter-availability work. Transportation costs include, but are not limited to, bus fare, carfare, train fare, or boat fare, paid by the work force or paid by Seller on behalf of the work force.
- Subparagraph (d)(i) does not preclude payments to Seller for allowable transportation costs incurred, such as those for bus and driver, to transport workers to a Government facility or other directed Government work site for performance of scheduled ship availability or inter-availability work. Transportation costs incurred in the replacement of personnel when such replacement is accomplished for Seller's or employee's convenience shall not be reimbursed by Buyer.
- Use of Black Oxide Coated Threaded Fasteners (BOCTFs)
Due to safety concerns, use of BOCTFs is not authorized when installing or replacing threaded fasteners in the accomplishment of any work required by any work item in this Contract.
- Use of Power Grinders and Saws (NAVSEA) (SEP 1990)
- All portable pneumatic grinders or reciprocating saws that are to be used on reactor plant material or equipment or used within the reactor compartment shall be equipped with safety lock-off devices. In addition, Seller agrees that all portable pneumatic grinders or reciprocating saws that it purchases or acquires subsequent to the date of this Contract, for use in performance of this Contract in Naval workplace areas shall be equipped with safety lock-off devices.
- A "safety lock-off device" is any operating control which requires positive action by the operator before the tool can be turned on. The lock-off device shall automatically and positively lock the throttle in the off position when the throttle is released. Two consecutive operations by the same hand shall be required first to disengage the lock-off device and then to turn on the throttle. The lock-off device shall be integral with the tool, shall not adversely affect the safety or operating characteristics of the tool, and shall not be easily removable.
- Devices, such as a "dead man control" or "quick-disconnect", which do not automatically and positively lock the throttle in the off position when the throttle is released, are not safety lock-off devices.
- Notification of Changes (NAVSEA) (JAN 1983)
- Definitions. As used in this requirement, the term "Buyer" includes any representative of Buyer with authority to bind Buyer under this Contract, but does not necessarily include any other individual who in any way communicates 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.
- 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. Therefore, except for changes identified as such in writing and signed by Buyer, Seller shall notify the Buyer 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 thirty (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:
- The date, nature, and circumstances of the conduct regarded as a change;
- The name, function, and activity of the individuals directly involved in or knowledgeable about such conduct;
- The identification of any documents and the substance of any oral communication involved in such conduct;
- The particular elements of contract performance for which Seller might seek an equitable adjustment under this Contract, including:
- What vessel(s) have been or might be affected by the potential change;
- To the extent practicable, labor or materials or both which have been or might be added, deleted, or wasted by the potential change;
- To the extent practicable, Seller's preliminary order of magnitude estimate of cost and schedule effect of the potential change; and
- What and in what manner are the particular technical requirements or contract requirements regarded as changed.
- 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 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.
- Buyer's Response. Buyer shall promptly, and in any event within twenty one (21) calendar days after receipt of Notice, respond thereto in writing. In such response, Buyer shall either:
- Confirm that the conduct of which Seller gave notice would constitute a change, and when necessary, direct the mode of further performance; or
- Countermand any conduct regarded by Seller as a change; or
- Deny that the conduct of which Seller gave notice would constitute a change and, when necessary, direct the mode of further performance; or
- 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 to respond within the time required above shall be deemed a countermand under (d)(ii).
- 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.
- Special Procedures. Paragraph (c) provides that Seller is to take no action to implement a potential change pending Buyer's response to the Seller's notice of the potential change, except where specifically directed by Buyer. In special situations, however, where
- The circumstances do not allow sufficient time to notify Buyer of the facts prior to the need to proceed with the work; and
- The work must proceed to avoid hazards to personnel or property or to avoid additional cost to Buyer, Seller may proceed with work in accordance with the potential change. In such special situations, Seller shall Buyer 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 thirty (30) calendar days of the conduct giving rise to the potential change, Seller shall provide notice as required in (b) above. Buyer shall respond as set forth in (d) above. If Buyer 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.
- When Seller identifies any conduct which may result in delay to delivery of the vessel(s), Seller shall promptly so inform Buyer thereof prior to providing the notice required by paragraph (b) above.
- 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 this Contract, beginning with the ____quarter of______, Seller shall deliver to Buyer an executed bilateral contract modification, in the format set forth in Exhibit "A" to this clause, covering the six-month period 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 with notice, containing the information set forth in paragraph (b) of this clause, 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 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.
- If the release in accordance with paragraph (h) above is not provided to Buyer 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 Buyer (with any specific exceptions) within sixty (60) days of receipt thereof, the required release shall then be deemed effective as if signed by Seller.
Exhibit A to "Notification of Changes" clause
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 clause 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.
- 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.
- In consideration of the foregoing the parties hereby agree to the following release:
- 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 __________ .
- 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, or any contract between Seller and any third party by reason of any conduct which increases the Seller's cost or time of performance of work under this Contract and (1) was known to Seller, (2) occurred on or before _____________, 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, or any contract between Seller and any third party.
- Payment Instructions for Multiple Accounting Classification Citations (NAVSEA) (APR 2004)
- The Prime Contract and this Contract are funded by multiple accounting classification citations referred to as accounting classification reference numbers (ACRNs). Contract line item numbers (CLINs) are further broken down into sub line item numbers (SLINs) in Section B and on the financial accounting data sheet (FADS).
- Invoicing Instructions. Seller is required to invoice by CLIN/SLIN and ACRN. Invoices should not reference both the CLIN and SLIN. If the SLINs are shown on the FAD sheet and ACRNs and dollar amounts have been identified for them, then only the SLIN is required not the CLIN. The ACRN is always required. The amounts invoiced for each ACRN cannot exceed that authorized for each CLIN/SLIN as identified on the FAD sheet.
- Payment Instructions. Pay according to the CLIN/SLIN/ACRN cited on the invoice or progress payment. Each ACRN assigned to the specific CLIN/SLIN should be charged in the amount assigned to each CLIN/SLIN as identified on the FAD sheet as long as the amount does not exceed that authorized for the assigned ACRN, CLIN or SLIN. In the event the invoice or progress payment has not identified specific amounts to be paid from each ACRN, payment for each ACRN shall be prorated across all ACRNs assigned to that CLIN/SLIN on the invoice or progress payment.
