The Contractor shall not refer to contracts awarded by the Department of the Interior in commercial
advertising, as defined in FAR 31.205-1, in a manner which states or implies that the

product or service provided is approved or endorsed by the Government, or is considered by the
Government to be superior to other products or services. This restriction is intended to avoid the
appearance of preference by the Government toward any product or service. The Contractor may request
the Contracting Officer to make a determination as to the propriety of promotional material.



 1452.204-70       RELEASE OF CLAIMS - DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR                           JUL 1996
After completion of work and prior to final payment, the Contractor shall furnish the Contracting Officer

         1452.225-70      USE OF FOREIGN CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS-                              JUL 1996
                          DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR
(a) The Government has determined that the Buy American Act is not applicable to the following
construction materials because they are not mined, produced, or manufactured in the U.S. in sufficient
quantities of a satisfactory quality:

NONE

(b) Offers based on the use of foreign construction materials other than those listed in (a) above may be
acceptable if the Government determines that U.S. construction material is not available, would be
impracticable or constitute an unreasonable price. Please contact the contracting officer with questions or
comments concerning non-availability or impracticability of U.S. material.

(c)(1) Offers based upon use of foreign construction material for cost savings will be considered
reasonable if the cost of each foreign construction material, plus 6 percent, is less than the cost of each
comparable U.S. construction material. The Contracting Officer shall compute the cost of each foreign
construction material to include all delivery costs to the construction site, and any applicable duty (whether
or not a duty-free entry certificate is issued.) This evaluation shall be made for each foreign construction
material included in the offer, but not listed in subparagraph (a) above in this clause.

   (2) Any contractor cost savings from post-award approval to substitute foreign construction material for
   U.S. construction material shall be passed on to the Government.


                                                     I-4
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

(d)(1) This offer is based on the use of foreign construction material not listed in (a) above. For each
foreign item proposed the offeror shall furnish the following information for the foreign material offered:
item description, supplier, unit of measure, quantity, unit price, duty (even if a duty free certificate is
issued), delivery costs, and total price and shall also identify information on a U.S. item comparable to the
foreign item including: supplier, unit of measure, quantity, unit price, delivery costs and total price.
   (2) If the Government rejects the use of foreign construction material listed under paragraph (d)(1)
   above, the Government will evaluate the Contractor's offer using the offeror's stated price for the
   comparable U.S. construction material, and the offeror shall be required to furnish such domestic
   construction material at the Contractor's originally offered price. In preaward situations, an offer which
   does not state a price for a comparable U.S. construction material will be rejected by the Government.
   In postaward situations an offer proposing foreign material which does not state the price for the
   comparable U.S. construction material will be rejected by the Government. The Contractor shall use
   comparable U.S. material for the project and any additional cost for the use of this U.S. material shall
   be absorbed by the Contractor.

        1452.228-70      LIABILITY INSURANCE - DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR                          JUL 1996

(a) The Contractor shall procure and maintain during the term of this contract and any extension thereof
liability insurance in form satisfactory to the Contracting Officer by an insurance company which is
acceptable to the Contracting Officer. The named insured parties under the policy shall be the Contractor
and the United States of America. The amounts of the insurance shall be not less than as follows:

   $100,000 each person
   $500,000 each occurrence
   $ 20,000 property damage

(b) Each policy shall have a certificate evidencing the insurance coverage. The insurance company shall
provide an endorsement to notify the Contracting Officer 30 days prior to the effective date of cancellation
or termination of the policy or certificate; or modification of the policy or certificate which may adversely
affect the interest of the Government in such insurance. The certificate shall identify the contract number,
the name and address of the Contracting Officer, as well as the insured, the policy number and a brief
description of contract services to be performed. The contractor shall furnish the Contracting Officer with a
copy of an acceptable insurance certificate prior to beginning the work.



          1452.237-70     INFORMATION COLLECTION – DEPARTMENT OF THE                                  JUL 1996
                          INTERIOR
If performance of this contract requires the contractor to collect information on identical items from ten or
more public respondents, no action shall be taken or funds expended in the solicitation or collection of
such information until the contractor has received from the Contracting Officer written notification that
approval has been obtained from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) pursuant to the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980. The Contractor agrees to provide all information requested by the
Contracting Officer which is necessary to obtain approval from OMB.



         52.215-19         NOTIFICATION OF OWNERSHIP CHANGES                                      OCT 1997

                                                      I-5
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

   (1) When the Contractor 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 Contractor shall notify the Administrative Contracting Officer (ACO) within 30 days.

   (2) The Contractor shall also notify the ACO within 30 days 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.

(b) The Contractor shall --

   (1) Maintain current, accurate, and complete inventory records of assets and their costs;

   (2) Provide the ACO or designated representative ready access to the records upon request;

   (3) Ensure that all individual and grouped assets, their capitalized values, accumulated depreciation or
   amortization, and remaining useful lives are identified accurately before and after each of the
   Contractor’s ownership changes; and

   (4) Retain and continue to maintain depreciation and amortization schedules based on the asset
   records maintained before each Contractor ownership change.

(c) The Contractor shall include the substance of this clause in all subcontracts under this contract that
meet the applicability requirement of FAR 15.408(k).

52.217-7 OPTION FOR INCREASED QUANTITY —SEPARATELY PRICED LINE ITEM                              (MAR 1989)

The Government may require the delivery of the numbered line item, identified in the Schedule as an
option item, in the quantity and at the price stated in the Schedule. The Contracting Officer may exercise
the option by written notice to the Contractor based on the following factors:

        Following the completion of the placement of the lean concrete in Schedule A, the Government
        will evaluate the performance of all work in Schedule A with particular emphasis on the following:
        1) Performance of the excavation support and protection, 2) removal and control of water, 3)
        execution of the excavation and preparation of final foundation surface, and 4) placement of the
        lean concrete. The Government will make a determination as to whether to award Schedule B
        within 21 days from the final placement of the lean concrete in Schedule A.

Delivery of added items shall continue at the same rate that like items are called for under the contract,
unless the parties otherwise agree.

52.225-11 BUY AMERICAN ACT—CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS UNDER TRADE AGREEMENTS
                                                                AUG 2009

   (a) Definitions. As used in this clause—
  ―Caribbean Basin country construction material‖ means a construction material that—
     (1) Is wholly the growth, product, or manufacture of a Caribbean Basin country; or
     (2) In the case of a construction material that consists in whole or in part of materials from another
country, has been substantially transformed in a Caribbean Basin country into a new and different
construction material distinct from the materials from which it was transformed.
  ―Commercially available off-the-shelf (COTS) item‖—
     (1) Means any item of supply (including construction material) that is—
        (i) A commercial item (as defined in paragraph (1) of the definition at FAR 2.101);

                                                     I-6
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

         (ii) Sold in substantial quantities in the commercial marketplace; and
         (iii) Offered to the Government, under a contract or subcontract at any tier, without modification, in
the same form in which it is sold in the commercial marketplace; and
      (2) Does not include bulk cargo, as defined in section 3 of the Shipping Act of 1984 (

   ―Component‖ means an article, material, or supply incorporated directly into a construction material.
   ―Construction material‖ means an article, material, or supply brought to the construction site by the
Contractor or subcontractor for incorporation into the building or work. The term also includes an item
brought to the site preassembled from articles, materials, or supplies. However, emergency life safety
systems, such as emergency lighting, fire alarm, and audio evacuation systems, that are discrete systems
incorporated into a public building or work and that are produced as complete systems, are evaluated as a
single and distinct construction material regardless of when or how the individual parts or components of
those systems are delivered to the construction site. Materials purchased directly by the Government are
supplies, not construction material.
   ―Cost of components‖ means—
      (1) For components purchased by the Contractor, the acquisition cost, including transportation costs
to the place of incorporation into the construction material (whether or not such costs are paid to a
domestic firm), and any applicable duty (whether or not a duty-free entry certificate is issued); or
      (2) For components manufactured by the Contractor, all costs associated with the manufacture of
the component, including transportation costs as described in paragraph (1) of this definition, plus
allocable overhead costs, but excluding profit. Cost of components does not include any costs associated
with the manufacture of the construction material.
   ―Designated country‖ means any of the following countries:
      (1) A World Trade Organization Government Procurement Agreement country (Aruba, Austria,
Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany,
Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea (Republic of), Latvia,
Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania,
Singapore, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, or United Kingdom);
      (2) A Free Trade Agreement country (Australia, Bahrain, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominican
Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua, Oman, Peru, or Singapore);
      (3) A least developed country (Afghanistan, Angola, Bangladesh, Benin, Bhutan, Burkina Faso,
Burundi, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti,
East Timor, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Kiribati, Laos,
Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Mozambique, Nepal, Niger, Rwanda,
Samoa, Sao Tome and Principe, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Somalia, Tanzania, Togo,
Tuvalu, Uganda, Vanuatu, Yemen, or Zambia); or
      (4) A Caribbean Basin country (Antigua and Barbuda, Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, British
Virgin Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Haiti, Jamaica, Montserrat, Netherlands Antilles, St. Kitts and
Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, or Trinidad and Tobago).
   ―Designated country construction material‖ means a construction material that is a WTO GPA country
construction material, an FTA country construction material, a least developed country construction
material, or a Caribbean Basin country construction material.
   ―Domestic construction material‖ means—
      (1) An unmanufactured construction material mined or produced in the United States;

                                                      I-7
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

      (2) A construction material manufactured in the United States, if—
          (i) The cost of its components mined, produced, or manufactured in the United States exceeds 50
percent of the cost of all its components. Components of foreign origin of the same class or kind for which
nonavailability determinations have been made are treated as domestic; or
          (ii) The construction material is a COTS item.
   ―Foreign construction material‖ means a construction material other than a domestic construction
material.
   ―Free Trade Agreement country construction material‖ means a construction material that—
      (1) Is wholly the growth, product, or manufacture of a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) country; or
      (2) In the case of a construction material that consists in whole or in part of materials from another
country, has been substantially transformed in a FTA country into a new and different construction
material distinct from the materials from which it was transformed.
   ―Least developed country construction material‖ means a construction material that—
      (1) Is wholly the growth, product, or manufacture of a least developed country; or
      (2) In the case of a construction material that consists in whole or in part of materials from another
country, has been substantially transformed in a least developed country into a new and different
construction material distinct from the materials from which it was transformed.
   ―United States‖ means the 50 States, the District of Columbia, and outlying areas.
   ―WTO GPA country construction material‖ means a construction material that—
      (1) Is wholly the growth, product, or manufacture of a WTO GPA country; or

material distinct from the materials from which it was transformed.
   (b) Construction materials.
      (1) This clause implements the Buy American Act (41 U.S.C. 10a-10d) by providing a preference for
domestic construction material. In accordance with 41 U.S.C. 431, the component test of the Buy
American Act is waived for construction material that is a COTS item (See FAR 12.505(a)(2)). In addition,
the Contracting Officer has determined that the WTO GPA and Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) apply to
this acquisition. Therefore, the Buy American Act restrictions are waived for designated county
construction materials.
      (2) The Contractor shall use only domestic or designated country construction material in performing
this contract, except as provided in paragraphs (b)(3) and (b)(4) of this clause.
      (3) The requirement in paragraph (b)(2) of this clause does not apply to the construction materials or
components listed by the Government as follows: NONE
       (4) The Contracting Officer may add other foreign construction material to the list in paragraph (b)(3)
of this clause if the Government determines that—
          (i) The cost of domestic construction material would be unreasonable. The cost of a particular
domestic construction material subject to the restrictions of the Buy American Act is unreasonable when
the cost of such material exceeds the cost of foreign material by more than 6 percent;
          (ii) The application of the restriction of the Buy American Act to a particular construction material
would be impracticable or inconsistent with the public interest; or
          (iii) The construction material is not mined, produced, or manufactured in the United States in
sufficient and reasonably available commercial quantities of a satisfactory quality.
   (c) Request for determination of inapplicability of the Buy American Act.

                                                      I-8
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

request, including—
              (A) A description of the foreign and domestic construction materials;
              (B) Unit of measure;
              (C) Quantity;

accordance with paragraph (b)(3) of this clause.
         (ii) A request based on unreasonable cost shall include a reasonable survey of the market and a
completed price comparison table in the format in paragraph (d) of this clause.

any applicable duty (whether or not a duty-free certificate may be issued).
         (iv) Any Contractor request for a determination submitted after contract award shall explain why
the Contractor could not reasonably foresee the need for such determination and could not have
requested the determination before contract award. If the Contractor does not submit a satisfactory
explanation, the Contracting Officer need not make a determination.
      (2) If the Government determines after contract award that an exception to the Buy American Act
applies and the Contracting Officer and the Contractor negotiate adequate consideration, the Contracting
Officer will modify the contract to allow use of the foreign construction material. However, when the basis
for the exception is the unreasonable price of a domestic construction material, adequate consideration is
not less than the differential established in paragraph (b)(4)(i) of this clause.
      (3) Unless the Government determines that an exception to the Buy American Act applies, use of
foreign construction material is noncompliant with the Buy American Act.

cost, the Contractor shall include the following information and any applicable supporting data based on
the survey of suppliers:

(a) Definitions. "Acquisition cost," as used in this clause means, the Contractor's original purchase price
(including sales tax less salvage value) of an item of equipment including any and all accessories and
expendable components required for utilization the item of equipment. For used equipment which is
reconditioned and recapitalized, "acquisition cost" shall mean the adjusted amount resulting from the
recapitalized value of the equipment as determined from the Contractor's accounting records.

"Equipment," as used in this clause, means equipment in sound workable condition at the construction
work site, either owned or controlled by the Contractor or its subcontractors at any tier, or obtained from a
commercial rental source, and furnished for use under this contract.

"Ownership cost," as used in this clause, means allowances for construction equipment depreciation and
cost of facilities capital.

"Operating cost," as used in this clause, means the cost of operating equipment such as operating crew
labor, servicing labor and equipment, labor and parts for all repairs and maintenance, fuel, oil, grease,
supplies, tire wear and repair.

(b) Policy. Equitable adjustments made in the price of this contract pursuant to the Changes, Differing Site
Condition, Suspension of Work, or other clause of the contract, may include allowable ownership and
operating costs for equipment. In accordance with FAR 31.105(d), allowable ownership and operating
costs for each piece of equipment, or groups of similar serial or series equipment, shall be determined
using actual cost data when such data are available from the Contractor's accounting records. When
actual costs cannot be so determined or when actual cost data for a specific element of operating cost do
not contain costs for individual pieces or types of equipment, the procedures in paragraph (d) of this
clause shall be used to determine allowable costs (provided, in the case of operating costs, that the costs
are reconciled to the Contractor's total cost for that operating element). For fully depreciated equipment,
the procedures in paragraph (e) of this clause shall be used to determine allowable costs.

(c) Required data. In any request made for an equitable adjustment, the Contractor shall furnish to the
Contracting Officer --
    (1) A complete description of each item of equipment (including all accessory equipment attached
    thereto) to be used in connection with the work to be performed listing the date of manufacture, date of
    acquisition, make, model, size, capacity, mounting, and type of power;
   (2) Evidence of the acquisition cost of new or used equipment to be used including all available current
   and historical supporting cost data. If evidence of acquisition cost is not provided by the Contractor or if
   the data provided are unacceptable to the Contracting Officer, the Contracting Officer may determine
    the acquisition cost by other appropriate means.

(d) Use of the predetermined rate schedule.
    (1) When the Contracting Officer determines that allowable ownership and operating costs cannot be
     determined from the Contractor's accounting records, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers pamphlet
     entitled "Construction Equipment Ownership and Operating Expense Schedule" (Schedule) for the
     State in which the construction site is located shall be used to calculate ownership and operating rates.
     Copies of the Schedules can be obtained, free of charge, from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
     Publications Depot, 2803 52nd Avenue, Hyattsville, MD 20781-1102.

Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

   (2) For the purpose of determination of the hourly rates to be applied under this contract, working
   conditions shall be considered average, unless otherwise determined by the Contracting Officer.
  (3) Rates for equipment not listed in the Schedule shall be calculated using the formulas in the
  Schedule. Alternatively, the Contracting Officer may determine to use rates in the Schedule for
  equipment comparable to the unlisted equipment, including horsepower and auxiliary features.

(e) Fully depreciated equipment. No depreciation or rental cost shall be allowed on equipment fully
depreciated by the Contractor or by any division, subsidiary, parent company, or affiliate under common
control. However, a reasonable rate for using fully depreciated equipment may be allowed by the
Contracting Officer. Unless otherwise determined by the Contracting Officer, such hourly rate shall not
exceed a value computed by multiplying the depreciation rate for the equipment (as shown in the
Schedule table entitled "Construction Equipment Ownership and Operating Expense") by the economic
index for the year of equipment manufacture (as shown in the Schedule table entitled "Economic Indexes
for Construction Equipment"), divided by the economic index correspondingly with the year the Schedule
is published. The year used for the basis of the rates in the Schedule is indicated in the table entitled
"Equipment Age Adjustment Factors for Ownership Costs." Idle or standby time will not be paid for fully
depreciated equipment.

(f) Idle or standby time. Equipment ownership costs for idle or standby time of equipment not fully
depreciated shall be determined as follows:
     (1) The allowable rate shall be made at 50 percent of the hourly rate for ownership costs if actual cost
     data are used. The maximum hours per week allowed shall not exceed 40 hours or the amount of
     hours regularly worked by the Contractor, whichever is less. No allowance shall be made for
     Saturdays, Sundays, or holidays, when work is not actually performed.
     (2) If actual cost data cannot be determined, the rate shall be computed in accordance with the
     Schedule.
     (3) No costs shall be allowed for time when the equipment would have been otherwise idle or was not
     in good operating condition.
     (4) Periods of time less than 2 hours on which equipment is down for normal and regular servicing and
     for minor field repair or field maintenance shall be considered by the Contractor to be operating time
    rather than idle or standby time and such periods shall not be deducted from use or operating time.
    (5) No costs are allowable for fully depreciated equipment.

(g) Rental. Allowable costs for renting or leasing of equipment shall be determined in accordance with
FAR 31.105(d)(2)(ii) and 31.205-36.

the work will reach the point at which the total amount payable by the Government, including any cost for
termination for convenience, will approximate 75 percent of the total amount then allotted to the contract
for performance of work identified in paragraph (b) of this clause. The notification shall state (1) the
estimated date when that point will be reached and (2) an estimate of additional funding, if any, needed to
continue performance of the work up to the next scheduled date for allotment of funds identified in
paragraph (b) of this clause, or to a mutually agreed upon substitute date. The notification shall also
advise the Contracting Officer of the estimated amount of additional funds that will be required for the
timely performance of work funded pursuant to this clause, for a subsequent period as may be specified in
the allotment schedule in paragraph (b) of this clause, or otherwise agreed to by the parties. If after such
notification additional funds are not allotted by the date identified in the Contractor's notification, or by an
agreed substitute date, the Contracting Officer shall terminate any work for which additional funds have
not been allotted, pursuant to the Termination for Convenience of the Government clause of this contract.

(e) When additional funds are allotted for continued performance of the work identified in paragraph (b) of
this clause, the parties will agree as to the period of contract performance which will be covered by the
funds. The provisions of paragraph (c) through (e) of this clause will apply in like manner to the additional
allotted funds and agreed substitute date, and the contract will be modified accordingly through revision of
paragraph (b) of this clause. The Contracting Officer is the only person authorized to provide notice,
communication, or other form of representation to increase or decrease the amount of funds allotted by
the Government to this contract. . If agreement cannot be reached, the Contracting Officer will make a
final decision as to the period of contract performance that will be covered by the funds. This decision may
be appealed by the Contractor under the Disputes clause of the contract.

(f) If, solely by reason of failure of the Government to allot additional funds in amounts sufficient for timely
performance of the work identified in paragraph (b) of this clause, the Contractor incurs additional costs or
is delayed in the performance of the work under this contract and if additional funds are allotted, an
equitable adjustment will be made in the price or prices (including appropriate target, billing, and ceiling
prices where applicable) of work, or in the time of delivery, or both. Failure to agree to any such equitable
adjustment hereunder shall be a dispute concerning a question of fact within the meaning of the Disputes
clause of this contract.
(g) The Government may at any time prior to termination allot additional funds for the performance of the
work identified in paragraph (b) of this clause.

Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

(h) The termination provisions of this clause do not limit the rights of the Government under the Default
clause of this contract. The provisions of this clause are limited to the work and allotment of funds as set
forth in paragraph (b) of this clause. This clause is inapplicable once the contract is fully funded except
with regard to the rights or obligations of the parties concerning equitable adjustments negotiated under
paragraphs (e) or (f) of this clause.
(i) Change orders shall not be considered authorization to exceed the amount allotted by the Government
as specified in paragraph (b) of this clause unless the amount is increased by inclusion of a statement
contained in the change order.
(j) Nothing in this clause affects the right of the Government to terminate this contract pursuant to the
Termination for Convenience of the Government clause of this contract.

be impacted or altered as a result of any Federal project, activity, or program or federally licensed or
assisted project, activity, or program.

(b) Discovery of Resources. Should the Contractor, or any of the Contractor's employees, subcontractors,
or parties operating or associated with the Contractor, in the performance of this contract discover

      protect the items discovered, and wait for written approval from the Contracting Officer before
       resuming activity. This requirement is prescribed under the Native American Graves Protection and
      Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Many States have "burial laws" that apply to non-Federal and non-
      Indian lands; the Contractor is responsible for complying with applicable state law when operating
      on non-Federal and non-Indian lands.
      (ii) If the discovery occurs on tribal lands, the Contractor shall immediately orally notify the
      responsible tribal official and the Contracting Officer and follow with written confirmation within 2

      (iii) The Contractor shall exercise care so as not to disturb or damage any cultural resources
       discovered during the execution of this contract, and shall provide such cooperation and assistance
       as may be necessary to preserve the findings for removal or other disposition by Reclamation. The
       Contractor shall not resume work in the area of a discovery until written notice to proceed is
       received from the Contracting Officer.

(c) Destruction of Archaeological Resources. Any person who excavates, removes, damages, alters or
defaces or attempts to excavate, remove, damage, or otherwise alter or deface any archaeological
resource located on public lands or Indian lands is subject to a maximum of five years in prison and
$250,000 fine, as prescribed under Sections 6 and 7 of the Archaeological Resources Protection Act.
State law may provide other penalties on non-Federal lands.

(d) Approval of Use Areas and Borrow Sources. If the Contractor proposes to use a location other than an
approved location (approved locations to be provided by the Contracting Officer), the location(s) must first
be approved for use by the Contracting Officer. When considering an unapproved use area or borrow
source, the Contractor shall submit a map showing the location to the Contracting Officer at least 45
calendar days in advance of any proposed use. The Contractor or his subcontractors shall take no action
to use or alter the proposed location until written approval is provided by the Contracting Officer.

(e) Compensation for Delays. Where appropriate by reason of discovery, the Contracting Officer may
order changes in the schedule or work. If such delays or changes are ordered, any equitable adjustment
under the contract will be provided in accordance with the applicable clauses of the contract.

(f) Subcontractors. The Contractor shall insert this clause in all subcontracts that involve performance of
work on job site terrain.

(g) Cost. Except as provided in subsection e above, the cost of complying with this contract clause shall
be included in the prices offered in the schedule for other items of work.

its representatives access to the land to identify cultural resources and conduct appropriate inspections
during the Contractor's use of the area or during material procurement.
       (i) Definitions.
       (i) "Cultural items" as defined by NAGPRA include Native American human remains, funerary
       objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony.
       (ii) "Cultural resources" is a broad term that includes prehistoric, historic, architectural, and
        traditional cultural properties; specific items include, but are not limited to, human skeletal remains,
        archaeological artifacts, records, and material remains related to such properties.
        (iii) "Funerary objects" means Native American items that, as part of the death rite or ceremony of a
                                                      I-20
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

       culture, are reasonably believed to have been placed intentionally at the time of death or later with
       or near individual human remains.

      (vi) "Sacred objects" means Native American items that are specific ceremonial objects needed by
       traditional Native American religious leaders for the practice of traditional Native American religions
       by their present-day adherents. These items are specifically limited to objects that were devoted to
       a traditional Native American religious ceremony or ritual and which have religious significance or
       function in the continued observance or renewal of such ceremony.
      (vii) "Objects of cultural patrimony" means Native American items having ongoing historical,
       traditional, or cultural importance central to the Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization itself,
      rather than property owned by an individual tribal or organization member. These objects are of

(a) General Security Requirements:
    (1) This clause addresses security requirements, including general procedural requirements,
    information security requirements, contractor employee suitability requirements, identification card
    requirements, site security requirements, and information technology security requirements. Within this
    clause, COR means Contracting Officer's Representative. If there is no COR appointed and identified
    to the Contractor, the term instead will mean the Program Manager or any other authorized individual
    responsible for technical oversight under the contract. ―Work site‖ means the Government facility,
    office, construction site, and any other area within the Government office or facility that the Contractor
    must access to accomplish work under this contract.

    employment of the Contractor or any subcontractors) whose conduct and behavior is consistent with
    the efficiency of the Federal Service and the requirements of this contract, and who are acceptable to
    the CO. If Reclamation finds a Contractor employee to be unsuitable or unfit for his or her assigned
    duties, the CO will direct the Contractor to remove the individual from the contract and access to the
    Federal facility at which the contract activities are occurring.
    (3) The Contractor’s employees governed by this contract may need access to sensitive information
    and/or may need access to designated Controlled Access Areas (CAAs). The Federal Government
    (Government) reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to determine suitability of Contractor personnel
    and deny access to any sensitive information or project specific area to any personnel for any cause.
    (4) The Contractor is responsible for informing and ensuring compliance by its employees with any
    applicable security procedures of the Government facility where work may be performed under this
    contract.
    (5) Any Contractor employee that will have access to a Federally-controlled facility or information
    system will be required to have a Government-issued identification card, consisting of either a Personal
    Identity Verification (PIV) Card, a temporary identification card, or a visitor badge. During performance
    of the contract, the Contractor shall keep the COR apprised of any changes in personnel, or changes
    in personnel access or duration, to ensure that performance is not delayed by compliance with
    credentialing processes.
    (6) A Contractor employee will not be provided access to a Government facility or information system
    until a Government PIV Card, temporary identification card, or visitor identification badge has been
    issued to the Contractor employee. For those individuals that will be receiving a PIV Card, the
    Government may, at its discretion, issue a temporary identification card or visitor identification badge
                                                        I-21

   display the Government-issued PIV Card, temporary identification card, or visitor identification badge at
   all times. Contractor employees must visibly wear the Government-issued identification card at all
   times they are on Government facilities. Contractor employees are responsible for the safekeeping of
   all Government-issued identification cards, whether on-site or off-site. Cards that have been lost,
   damaged, or stolen must be reported to the COR within 24 hours. The Contractor shall return all
   identification cards and card keys and any other Government property and information upon
   completion of performance or when personnel depart permanently or for a period of 7 days or more.
   The Contractor may be required to turn in access control cards or identification cards on a daily basis.
   (8) Misuse or loss of access control or identification cards, or failure to comply with required surrender
   of such cards may, at Government discretion, result in Contractor personnel being denied access to
   the work site, at no cost to Government. The Contractor may be charged up to $500 for each
   occurrence for any required replacement of Government-issued access control or identification cards
   due to loss or misuse. At the end of contract performance, or when a Contractor employee is no longer
   working under this contract, the Contractor shall ensure that all access control and identification cards
   are returned to the COR.
   (9) All Contractor personnel, including subcontractor personnel, with access to the work site shall be
   U.S. citizens or foreign individuals legally residing in, or legally admitted to, the U.S. At the direction of
   the COR, the Contractor shall provide to the COR, in writing, the name and nationality of all non-U.S.
   citizens working under this contract. For those individuals with access to the work site, the Contractor
   shall also provide documentation that the foreign individual is legally residing in, or has been legally
   admitted to, the U.S.
   (10) The Contractor shall report all contacts with entities, individuals, and counsel/representatives
   (including foreign entities and foreign nationals) who seek in any way to obtain unauthorized access to
   sensitive information or areas. The Contractor shall report any violations of contract provisions, laws,

   information is consistent with the interests of National Security and the Public Trust.
   (11) Unsanctioned, negligent, or willful inappropriate action on the part of the Contractor (or its
   employees) may result in termination of the contract or removal of some Contractor employees from
   Reclamation facilities at no cost to the Government. These actions include, but are not limited to,
   exploration of a sensitive system and/or information, introduction of unauthorized and/or malicious
   software, or failure to follow prescribed access control policies and/or security procedures. Failure to
   comply with Reclamation policies, procedures, or other published security requirements may result in
   termination of the contract or removal of some contracted employees from Reclamation buildings
   and/or facilities at no cost to the Government.
   (12) All provisions of this clause shall equally apply to all subcontractors. The Contractor shall
   incorporate the substance of this clause in all subcontracts.
   (13) These security requirements apply to all sections of this Contract including Contract Drawings
   and other Contract Specifications as applicable. Related documents include other general provisions of
   Construction or Operations and Maintenance type Contracts, including FAR clauses by reference or as
   amended by related documents.

    administrative control as defined by Reclamation or that meets the criteria for exemption from public
    disclosure set forth under Sections 552 and 552a of Title 5, United States Code: the Freedom of
    Information Act and the Privacy Act. Sensitive information is generally categorized as FOR OFFICIAL
    USE ONLY (FOUO) information, but in some cases may include other unclassified information. (The
    protection of National Classified information is beyond the scope of this clause. If any work on
    Classified information is required under this contract, it is addressed under other contract clauses.) The
    Contractor shall protect this type of information from unauthorized release into public domain, or to
                                                      I-22
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

   unauthorized persons, organizations, or subcontractors. Information which, either alone or in
   aggregate, is deemed sensitive by Reclamation shall be handled and protected in accordance with
   Reclamation Directives and Standards for Identifying and Safeguarding FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY
   (FOUO) Information, which is available at http://www.usbr.gov/recman/DandS.html#sle.
   (2) Any Government-furnished information/material does not become the property of the Contractor
   and may be withdrawn at any time. Upon expiration of the contract, all documents released to the
   Contractor and any material created using data from such documents shall be returned to the COR for
   final disposition. Only with prior authorization from the CO may the Contractor retain the material. The
   Contractor or subcontractor shall not disclose or release the materials provided to the Contractor to
   any individuals of the Contractor's organization not directly engaged in providing services under the
   contract or that do not have a valid need-to-know. All technical data provided to the Contractor by the
   Government shall be protected from public or private disclosure in accordance with the markings
   printed on them. All other information relating to the items to be delivered or the services to be
   performed under this contract shall not be disclosed by any means without prior approval of the CO.
   Prohibited dissemination or disclosure includes, but is not limited to: permitting access to such
   information by foreign nationals or by immigrant aliens who may be employed by the Contractor,
   publication of technical or scientific papers, advertising, and disclosure to Contractor staff not
   investigated and deemed acceptable at the appropriate contract/information sensitivity level, or any
   other proposed public release. The Contractor shall maintain, and furnish upon demand of the CO,
   records of the names of individuals who have access to sensitive material in its custody. All questions
   regarding information security, access, and control shall be referred to the COR.
   (3) The Contractor shall not release to anyone outside the Contractor’s organization any sensitive, or
   otherwise protected information, regardless of medium in which it is contained (for example, film, tape,
   document, electronic), pertaining to any part of this contract or any Reclamation program or activity,
   unless the CO has given prior written approval. This includes, but is not limited to, news releases,
   marketing promotions, articles, interviews, reports, and any other media releases. Requests for
   approval shall identify the specific information to be released, the medium to be used, the purpose for
   the release, and a description of the need-to-know. The Contractor shall submit its request to the CO
   before the proposed date for release. Subcontractors shall submit requests for authorization to release
   through the prime Contractor to the CO.
   (4) The Contractor shall notify the COR immediately when known or suspected loss/compromise of
   sensitive information or other documents, notes, drawings, sketches, reports, photographs, exposed
   film or similar information which may affect the security interests of Government has occurred. This
   requirement extends to employees and other personnel working on behalf of the Contractor, and
   expands responsibility to include prompt reporting of security issues, including observed or
   subsequently discovered efforts by unauthorized persons to gain unauthorized access to sensitive
   information.

(c) Contractor Employee Suitability and Issuance of Government Identification Cards:
    (1) Performance of this contract requires Contractor personnel to have a Federal Government-issued
    Personal Identification Verification (PIV) Card before being allowed unsupervised access to a
    Federally-controlled facility or information system.
    (2) At the Government’s sole discretion, the Government may issue a temporary identification card or
    visitor identification badge, in lieu of a PIV Card, under one of the following conditions:
        (i) The individual will only be associated with Reclamation for a period of 180 days or less, will not
        have access to sensitive information, and any access to a Controlled Access Area or Federal-
        controlled information system will be fully supervised. The 180 calendar day period begins on the
        first day of the individual’s affiliation with Reclamation (in this case, the date that the individual’s
        contract performance begins) and ends exactly 180 days later, regardless of the number of times
        the individual actually accesses a Government facility or information system.
        (ii) The individual will only have sporadic access to Federal facilities and information systems, will
        not have access to sensitive information, and any access to a Reclamation Controlled Access Area
        or Federal-controlled information system will be fully supervised.
                                                      I-23
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

       (iii) The individual will work exclusively outdoors, will not have access to sensitive information, and
       any access to a Reclamation Controlled Access Area or Federal-controlled information system will
       be fully supervised.
       (iv) In paragraphs (i) through (iii), supervised access means the individual’s access to, and
       movement within, a facility is monitored and controlled sufficiently to prevent access to any
       unauthorized areas, equipment, or information; and the individual’s access to an information system
       is monitored and controlled sufficiently to ensure appropriate use of the system and information,
       and to prevent access to any unauthorized systems or information. Supervision must be performed
       by an individual with an active Government-issued PIV Card.
   (3) The Contractor shall furnish to the COR an alphabetical list of contract personnel, to include
   subcontractors, who will require access to a Government facility or information system. The list shall
   provide the full name, social security number, date of birth, place of birth, purpose or job title, and the
   estimated duration of access. If the Contractor believes an individual should be issued a temporary
   identification card or visitor identification badge in lieu of a PIV Card based on the conditions in
   paragraph (4), then the Contractor must also submit a sufficient written justification as to why the
   specific individual or individuals will not need a PIV Card. The Contractor shall provide this information
   before the start of contract performance, or before the start of an individual’s performance when there
   is a change or addition of personnel, with sufficient time to ensure that performance is not delayed by
   compliance with credentialing processes.
   (4) Any contract employees that will be issued a temporary identification card or visitor identification
   badge, in lieu of a PIV Card, at the Government’s sole discretion, will be subject to the following
   credentialing procedures:
   Contractor employee must have a valid identification to be issued a temporary identification badge and
   follow all local office procedures.
   (5) Any contract employees that will be issued a PIV Card will be subject to the following credentialing
   procedures:
       (i) For Contractor employees needing a PIV Card, as determined by the Government, the CO or
       COR will provide the appropriate background investigation forms to the Contractor, or initiate the
       electronic background investigation process, and give the Contractor instructions for completing the
       background investigation, fingerprinting, and PIV Card process. After the background investigation
       forms are completed, each Contractor employee shall be required to appear in person before a
       Government PIV Registrar to submit the background investigation forms, have personal identity
       verification documents verified, have a photograph taken, and sign the PIV Card Request Form.
       The Contractor must make its personnel available at the place and time specified by the COR in
       order to initiate this process. The following forms shall be used to initiate the background
       investigation and PIV process: OPM Standard Form 85, 85P, or 86; OF 306; Fingerprint Card FD-
       258; Fair Credit Reporting Act Authorization Form; and PIV Card Request Form (paper or web-
       based).
       (ii) The cost of completing and submitting the above forms, including any charges for obtaining
       fingerprints, shall be borne by the Contractor. The cost of the background investigation shall be
       borne by Reclamation.
       (iii) Contractor employees are required to give, and to authorize others to give, full, frank, and
       truthful answers to relevant and material questions needed to reach a suitability determination.
       Refusal or failure to furnish or authorize provision of information may constitute grounds for denial
       or revocation of credentials. Government personnel may contact the Contractor personnel being
       investigated in person, by telephone, or in writing, and the Contractor agrees to make them
       available for such contact.
       (iv) For each Contractor employee that will be issued a PIV Card, the Government will conduct a
       background investigation. The level of background investigation for each Contractor employee will
       be determined by the Government based on the risk and sensitivity levels as described in
       Reclamation’ s Personnel Security and Suitability Directives and Standards,‖ SLE 01-01, which is
       available at http://www.usbr.gov/recman/DandS.html#sle. At a minimum, each Contractor employee
       that will be issued a PIV Card will receive a National Agency Check with Written Inquiries (NACI)
                                                    I-24
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

      Background Investigation. The minimum standards which will be used in suitability determinations
      are contained in the DOI Departmental Manual Part 441, Chapter 5, which is available at
      http://elips.doi.gov/app_dm/act_getfiles.cfm?relnum=3290.
      (v) Each Contractor employee in a position designated as higher than Low Risk Non-Sensitive shall
      be reinvestigated on a periodic basis as described in Reclamation’s Personnel Security and
      Suitability Directives and Standards. A reinvestigation may also be initiated when the Contractor or
      the Government believes that a particular individual’s continued ability to meet the contract’s
      minimum standards is in question.
      (vi) If a Contractor employee has worked under a Federal agency contract within the past two years,
      and that contract required a successfully-adjudicated background investigation at the same risk
      level as (or higher than) this contract, further investigation may not be necessary. The Contractor
      shall provide the COR with documentation that supports the individual’s previous contract work and
      any information, including name and social security number, date of birth, and place of birth,
      needed for Government verification of previous background investigation.
      (vii) If the final adjudication is unfavorable on a Contractor employee, or if Reclamation finds a
      Contractor employee to be unsuitable or unfit for his or her assigned duties, the CO will direct the
      Contractor to remove the individual from the contract and access to the Federal facility at which the
      contract activities are occurring. In the event of a disagreement between the Contractor and the
      Government concerning the suitability of a particular employee to perform work under this contract,
      the Government shall have the right of final determination. Determinations under this requirement
      are subject to the Disputes Clause. Failure of the Contractor to comply with the requirements of
      this clause could constitute grounds for termination for default.
      (viii) Reclamation will not allow a Contractor employee access to their investigation files. An
      individual may request, under the provisions of the Privacy Act and/or Freedom of Information Act,
      copies of their files from the investigative agency (Office of Personnel Management). Reclamation
      will not release a copy of any investigative file, in whole or part, to the Contractor or any Contractor
      representative.
      (ix) Upon completion of a favorably-adjudicated background investigation, Contractor employees
      will be issued a Government PIV Card. When the PIV Card is printed, each Contractor employee
      shall be required to appear in person before the Reclamation PIV Card Issuer for identity
      verification, to sign the PIV Request Form, and receipt of the PIV Card.

(d) Site Security Requirements
    (1) General Description. This section provides provisions to ensure the full security integrity of the
    facility and personnel working at the facility. The work of this section may involve interfaces with a
    number of Government security personnel, normally coordinated through the designated COR. The
    Contractor is responsible for ensuring that activities are accomplished in a manner that complies fully
    with applicable security statutes, regulations, policies, directives, and standards.
    (2) Government Security Personnel. When and where applicable, security personnel may be assigned
    to control access, secure materials or activities at the work site, or escort Contractor personnel in
    CAAs or other sensitive areas. Personnel may include security managers, security guards, security
    contractors acting as agents of the Government, law enforcement personnel, or others. These
    individuals may be used to ensure the overall security and integrity of the site or building and may
    provide controlled access to designated CAAs. These individuals may conduct inspection of all
    workers, vehicles, equipment, or materials entering, or re-entering the work site. The inspection may
    be done with walk-through and/or hand-held metal detectors or by other means as may be deemed
    necessary by Reclamation.
    (3) Contractor Guard Force. At the Contractor’s sole discretion, and at the Contractor’s own expense,
    with prior written Government approval, a Contractor may be authorized to hire its own guards to
    secure Contractor-owned equipment and/or to protect Contractor employees or subcontractors. If such
    a relationship is permitted, the Contractor shall be exclusively liable for all guard activities to include
    action or inaction of Contractor’s guard personnel. The Government will not offer nor provide any
    indemnification. Contractor shall be solely responsible for guards at all times to include any
                                                     I-25
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

   supervision, oversight, and for the development of local guard orders and or procedures. The
   Contractor shall be responsible for coordinating all guard activities with the COR and shall develop and
   submit to the COR, for advance approval, any guard orders and/or guard procedures.
   (4) Additional Security-Related Submittals
       (i) Visitor List. The Contractor shall furnish to the COR, in advance, notification of visit of any
       Contractor-sponsored visitor to a Government-controlled facility. This notification should be in
       writing and must include the purpose or nature of the visit, the full name of the visitor, and the full
       name and phone number of the designated sponsor who will be physically responsible for escorting
       the visitor for the duration of the scheduled visit.
       (ii) Delivery Schedule. The Contractor shall furnish to the COR, in advance, a schedule for all
       deliveries. This list shall include estimated delivery date, time, nature of the materials being
       delivered, and – where available – the name of delivery company and type of vehicle.
       (iii) Explosive Security Plan. The Contractor shall furnish to the COR for approval, in advance, an
       explosive security plan at any work site where explosives will be stored or used.
   (5) General Provisions.
           (i) General. The Contractor shall comply with the Government’s site security procedures as
          specified, and as requested subsequent to award of Contract. Failure of the Contractor to comply
          with required access controls, information handling procedures, or any other security controls or
          procedures, may result in revocation of Contractor personnel access to the work site. The
          Government reserves the right to modify or clarify security provisions of this contract based on
          changing political and civil circumstances, and perceived threats to personnel or the facility.
          (ii) Security Facilities and Equipment. The Contractor shall u se security facilities and equipment
          only for the purposes intended and as directed by the COR. The Contractor shall comply with the
          Government’s instructions for use of secure storage areas, site enclosure and gates, temporary
          security lighting, building space enclosure, and lockup devices and systems established for
          detection, monitoring, signaling, and alarming field office facilities. Measures necessary to secure
          the integrity of materials, equipment, and tools installed or used in furtherance of this contract
          shall be at no cost to the Government.
          (iii) Security Personnel Availability/Work Schedules. The Contractor shall notify the COR at least
          24 hours in advance of any projected work which might impact on security or require the
          scheduling of extended security personnel support. The Contractor shall provide a weekly work
          schedule which may have security implications, such as anticipated delivery of materials, use of
          explosives or heavy machinery, and extra time needed for continuous or inherently lengthy
          construction or project specific operations (such as concrete placement).
          (iv) Deliveries. The Contractor shall provide at least one day’s advance notice of major deliveries,
          including time of arrival and trucks/carriers/documentation to be expected for arrival at work site.
          The Contractor shall provide reasonable advanced notice of deliveries which must be
          accommodated/accepted at times other than the Government’s established working hours.
          Failure to provide adequate advanced notice may result in delivery delays at the Contractor’s
          expense.
          (v) Site Access. All Contractor personnel will be issued appropriate identification and must comply
          with all local access control procedures. The Government reserves the exclusive right to refuse or
          disallow any vehicular or pedestrian access to any Government-controlled facility or for any
          deliveries to the work site, regardless if access was scheduled or unscheduled.
          (vi) Inspections and Searches. The Government reserves unqualified and unlimited right at any
          time to conduct security-related inspections or searches of work, material, equipment, personnel,
          and temporary facilities at the work site. The Contractor shall afford unrestricted access to work
          and allow surveillance and inspection by any Government personnel as authorized by the COR.
          The Government reserves the right to conduct searches of articles and personal effects of all
          Contractor personnel, both at point of entry and exit from the work site or Government facility. All
          Contractor personnel entering and leaving the work site may be required to pass through a Walk-
          Through-Metal-Detector device and/or other detection devices.
          (vii) After Duty Hours. No Contractor personnel shall be permitted access to the work site after the
                                                     I-26
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

       Government’s established working hours without prior authorization from the Government. All
       personnel seeking access to the site after the Government’s established working hours may be
       required to sign in and out in a visitor's log that may be maintained by the on duty security
       personnel (if any).
       (viii) Access Procedures at CAAs. In some instances, the Contractor may be required to erect
       temporary security barriers and doors to isolate a CAA, as instructed by the Government. The
       Contractor may be required to install locks and thereafter control access. The Contractor shall
       comply with the Government’s requirement for limited and escorted access to a CAA. The
       Contractor shall notify the COR at least one day prior to each requested access to a CAA that is
       outside of the Government’s established working hours.
       (ix) Reported Violations. Where an indication, report, or observation of unauthorized access or
       performance of unauthorized work has occurred, the Government reserves the right to stop work
       and deny access until the circumstance and work can be investigated, inspected, tested, and
       resolved. The entire cost of such stoppages and resolutions shall be borne by Contractor, except
       when alleged violations of established security requirements, after investigation, are found not to
       be the fault of the Contractor.
       (x) Briefings. Contractor personnel who will be assigned to this project, and who will have access
       to the work site, may be required to attend Government-conducted security briefings. The
       Government reserves the right to conduct security briefings for Contractor personnel and visitors
       at all levels of involvement in performance of work and maintenance of security. Required
       briefings may include, but are not limited to, the following: Information Security, Site Security
       Requirements and Procedures, Delivery Methods and Inspections, Storage Requirements,
       Reporting Requirements, Supervisory Procedures, Contractor Employee Conduct, Visitor Control,
       and Threats.
       (xi) Key Control. Control of keys/access codes and lock combinations is essential for the
       Government’s project security. The Contractor shall not allow keys or access codes to be
       duplicated or removed from the work site, nor allow lock combinations to be divulged without
       specific written advanced authorization from the COR. Such loss of control, observed or
       suspected, may result in a requirement to change locks involved at the Contractor’s expense. At
       the direction of the COR, the Contractor shall provide duplicate keys and lock combinations to
       Government security personnel when requested for the purpose of security inspections and
       emergency actions, including keys/combinations/access codes needed for unrestricted access to
       every area and element of the project. The Contractor may be required to establish a key control
       program that is acceptable to the Government for Government-issued keys and for heavy
       machinery parked at the construction site (if this is a construction contract).
       (xii) Vehicle Control. In general, parking of vehicles on the work site shall not be permitted, except
       for tractors, cranes, and similar equipment used directly in performance of work, for delivery of
       materials/supplies, and for removal of waste and surplus material. The Government may
       designate an approved contractor employee parking area. Upon entering the work site, vehicles
       and drivers may be subject to search and inspection. The Contractor shall obtain authorization
       from the COR to park the Contractor’s official vehicles and motorized vehicular construction
       equipment that are required/desired to be parked on the work site. Vehicles in violation may be
       towed off the work site at the Contractor’s expense. Where Government-designated employee
       parking is not available, parking of construction employees’ automobiles and similar transportation
       vehicles may be excluded from the work site. It is the Contractor ’s responsibility to arrange for
       suitable accommodation for these vehicles.
       (xiii) Prohibited/Restricted Items. Prohibited/restricted items and activities on the work site include
       but are not limited to the following: firearms and other weapons, except as specifically authorized
       by the COR; drugs, including narcotics, barbiturates, marijuana, alcoholic beverages, and similar
       substances, except for use with valid medical prescription; and explosives.
       (xiv) Exceptions for Explosives. When needed for use in specifically limited amounts and
       controlled circumstances for construction work, explosives may be brought onsite with written
       prior authorization from the COR. As a hazardous material, the Contractor shall treat the use of
                                                    I-27
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

        explosives in accordance with regulations and guidance provided by Federal, State, and local
        authorities. The storage of explosives shall be in accordance with requirements of the Bureau of
        Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms or the State in which they are stored. If onsite storage of
        explosives is necessary, explosives shall be stored at a pre-designated, secure site approved by
        the COR. Prior to Government approval of storage, the Contractor shall develop and submit to the
        COR a complete storage/security/retrieval plan for approval. The storage/security plan can be
        included in a ―Blasting Safety Plan.‖ The plan shall make accommodations for surveillance,
        detection, and response. Explosives firing systems shall be stored off-site and under no
        circumstances shall be stored together with explosives.

        (xv) Photography. The use of photographic equipment and taking of photographs shall only be
        allowed as authorized by the COR.

Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

(1) If the Government determines that an exception based on unreasonable cost of domestic construction
material applies, the Government will evaluate an offer requesting exception to the requirements of section 1605
of the Recovery Act or the Buy American Act by adding to the offered price of the contract—

(i) 25 percent of the offered price of the contract, if foreign iron, steel, or other manufactured goods are used as
construction material based on unreasonable cost of comparable manufactured domestic construction material;
and

(ii) 6 percent of the cost of foreign unmanufactured construction material included in the offer based on
unreasonable cost of comparable domestic unmanufactured construction material.

(d) Alternate offers.

(1) When an offer includes foreign construction material, other than Recovery Act designated country
construction material, that is not listed by the Government in this solicitation in paragraph (b)(3) of FAR clause

designated country construction material.

(2) If an alternate offer is submitted, the offeror shall submit a separate Standard Form 1442 for the alternate
offer and a separate cost comparison table prepared in accordance with paragraphs (c) and (d) of FAR clause
52.225-23 for the offer that is based on the use of any foreign construction material for which the Government
has not yet determined an exception applies.

(3) If the Government determines that a particular exception requested in accordance with paragraph (c) of FAR
clause 52.225-23 does not apply, the Government will evaluate only those offers based on use of the equivalent
domestic or Recovery Act designated country construction material, and the offeror shall be required to furnish
such domestic or Recovery Act designated country construction material. An offer based on use of the foreign
construction material for which an exception was requested—

(i) Will be rejected as nonresponsive if this acquisition is conducted by sealed bidding; or

(ii) May be accepted if revised during negotiations.

         WBR             SOURCE EVALUATION AND SELECTION PROCEDURES -                                   MAY 2005
        1452.215-80      BUREAU OF RECLAMATION

The Government intends to evaluate proposals submitted under this solicitation and select a source for contract
award without discussions (unless the contracting officer later determines discussions to be necessary) in
accordance with the following provision: FAR 52.215-1 Instructions to Offerors -- Competitive Acquisition (Jan
2004). Source selection shall be in accordance with procedures contained in FAR Part 15, Department of the
Interior Acquisition Regulation (DIAR) Part 1415 (48 CFR 1415) and Bureau of Reclamation Acquisition
Regulation WBR Part 1415. These procedures are summarized as follows:

(a) Technical evaluation. Technical proposals are being requested in order to obtain information to be
used in the evaluation process. Technical proposals are considered to be part of offers as to technical
performance. A Technical Proposal Evaluation Committee has been established to objectively evaluate technical
proposals in accordance with the Evaluation Factors for Award -- Bureau of Reclamation provision in Section M
of this solicitation. Technical proposals shall be submitted in accordance with the Technical Proposal Instructions
-- Bureau of Reclamation provision in Section L of this solicitation.

(b) Past Performance Evaluation. In addition to any other past performance information required under the
solicitation, the Contracting Officer (C0) shall use past performance information available from the Past
Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS.GOV) in the source selection process on offerors competing
for awards in excess of $100,000, unless the CO has documented an exception from past performance
consideration in accordance with FAR 15.304(c)(2)(iv).

(c) Cost or price evaluation. An objective cost or price evaluation of contract pricing proposals will be made in
accordance with the Evaluation Factors for Award provision in Section M of this solicitation. Pricing proposals
shall be submitted in accordance with the Contract Pricing Proposal Instructions -- Bureau of Reclamation
provision in Section L of this solicitation. Pursuant to FAR 15.404-1, cost or price evaluation will be used to
determine cost/price reasonableness and the offeror's understanding of, and ability to perform, the prospective

                                                         L-6
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

contract.

(d) Clarifications. Clarifications are limited exchanges, between the Government and offerors, that may occur
when award without discussions is contemplated. If award will be made without conducting discussions, offerors
may be given the opportunity to clarify certain aspects of proposals (e.g., the relevance of an offeror’s past
performance information and adverse past performance information to which the offeror has not previously had
an opportunity to respond) or to resolve minor or clerical errors.

(e) Communications. Communications are exchanges, between the Government and offerors, after receipt of
proposals, leading to establishment of the competitive range. Communications may be conducted to enhance
Government understanding of proposals, allow reasonable interpretation of the proposal, or facilitate the
Government’s evaluation process. Such communications may not be used to cure proposal deficiencies or
material omissions, materially alter the technical or cost elements of the proposal, and/or otherwise revise the
proposal. Communications are for the purpose of addressing issues that must be explored to determine whether
a proposal should be placed in the competitive range. They shall not provide an opportunity for the offeror to
revise its proposal, but may address ambiguities in the proposal or other concerns and information relating to
past performance.

(f) Competitive range. If discussions are to be conducted, the contracting officer shall establish the competitive
range based on the ratings of each proposal against all evaluation criteria. The competitive range shall comprise
all the most highly rated proposals, unless the range is further reduced for purposes of efficiency. The contracting
officer may determine that the number of most highly rated proposals that might otherwise be included in the
competitive range exceeds the number at which an efficient competition can be conducted. The contracting
officer may then limit the number of proposals in the range to the greatest number that will permit an efficient
competition among the most highly rated proposals. If, after discussions have begun (see paragraph (g) below),
an offeror originally in the competitive range is no longer considered to be among the most highly rated offerors
being considered for award, that offeror may be eliminated from the range whether or not all material aspects of
the proposal have been discussed, or whether or not the offeror has been afforded an opportunity to submit a
proposal revision.

(g) Preaward debriefing of offerors. Offerors excluded from the competitive range or otherwise excluded from
further consideration prior to the final source selection decision may request a debriefing before award. The
process for requesting and conducting preaward debriefings may be found at FAR 15.505.

(h) Discussions. Discussions are exchanges between the Government and offerors, after establishment of the
competitive range, that are undertaken with the intent of allowing the offeror to revise its proposal. These
discussions may include bargaining, including persuasion, alteration of assumptions and positions, give-and-take,
and may apply to price, schedule, technical requirements, type of contract, or other terms of a proposed contract.
Discussions are tailored to each offeror’s proposal, and shall be conducted by the contracting officer with each
offeror within the competitive range. The primary objective of discussions is to maximize the Government’s ability
to obtain best value, based on the requirement and the evaluation factors set forth in the solicitation.

(i) Proposal revisions. The contracting officer may request or allow proposal revisions to clarify and document
understandings reached during negotiations. At the conclusion of discussions, each offeror in the competitive
range shall be given an opportunity to submit a final proposal revision. The contracting officer is required to
establish a common cut-off date only for receipt of final proposal revisions. Requests for final proposal revisions
shall advise offerors that the final proposal revisions shall be in writing and that the Government intends to make
award without obtaining further revisions.

(j) Preaward survey. A Government survey activity may contact an offeror, or visit its facility, to obtain information
for determining its financial resources and/or its technical capabilities to perform the work when available
information is not sufficient for the Contracting Officer to make a determination regarding contractor responsibility
as required by FAR Subpart 9.1. Current financial statements and other information required to make this
                                                         L-7
Amendment 0002 to Solicitation R10PS20114

determination shall be made available to the survey activity. Information provided shall be protected from release
or disclosure outside the Government, except as provided in FAR Subpart 24.2, Freedom of Information Act.

(k) Organizational conflicts of interest. Award will not be made to an apparent successful offeror when an
organizational conflict of interest is determined to exist and cannot be avoided or mitigated, unless the
Contracting Officer determines that award is in the best interest of the United States and a waiver is obtained
pursuant to DIAR 1409.503 (48 CFR 1409.503).

(l) Source selection decision. The source selection authority’s (SSA) decision shall be based on a comparative
assessment of proposals against all source selection criteria in the solicitation. While the SSA may use reports
and criteria prepared by others, the source selection decision shall represent the SSA’s independent judgment.
The source selection decision shall be documented, and the documentation shall include the rationale for any
business judgments and tradeoffs made or relied on by the SSA, including benefits associated with additional
costs. Although the rationale for the selection decision must be documented, that documentation need not
quantify the tradeoffs that led to the decision.

(m) Postaward notice. After contract award, unsuccessful offerors will be provided with written notice regarding
contract award (including the information listed in FAR 15.503(b)) by the Contracting Officer. Offerors receiving
prior notice of exclusion from the competitive range under paragraph (f) of this provision will not receive this
notice.

(n) Postaward debriefing of offerors. An offeror shall be debriefed and furnished the basis for the source selection
decision and contract award if its written request is received by the contracting officer within three days after the
offeror receives notice of contract award. The process for requesting and conducting postaward debriefings may
be found at FAR 15.506.

        FAR 52.217-5              EVALUATION OF OPTIONS                      JULY 1990

Except when it is determined in accordance with FAR 17.206(b) not to be in the Government’s best
interests, the Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options
to the total price for the basic requirement. Evaluation of options will not obligate the Government to
exercise the option(s).


        WBR               EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD –                                            MAY 2005
       1452.215-85        QUALITY PREDOMINANCE - BUREAU OF RECLAMATION

(a) Award will be made to the responsible offeror submitting a proposal which conforms to the solicitation
and is most advantageous to the Government considering the factors and any significant subfactors listed
in this provision.

(b) In the evaluation of proposals, all evaluation factors other than cost or price (listed in this provision),
when combined, are considered to be significantly more important than cost or price. The relative
importance to be placed on the factors in relation to each other is contained in page M-5 of this section.
However, the degree of importance of cost or price may increase with the degree of non-cost or non-price
equality between the proposals. If a proposal is determined by the Contracting Officer to be "technically
unacceptable" as a result of evaluating all factors other than cost or price, the proposal may be rejected
from further consideration. The Contracting Officer reserves the right to make award to other than the
technically-acceptable offeror with the lowest cost/price proposal if it is determined that the technical
benefits of another offeror's proposal justify its higher cost/price. The Contracting Officer also reserves the
right to make award to a lower-cost/price, lower-scored offeror if it is determined that the cost/price
premium involved in awarding to a higher-rated, higher-cost/price offeror is not justified. Since technical
proposals are being solicited to obtain information to be used in the evaluation, the Government
reserves the right to use information outside of the proposal to evaluate the capability of offerors
and the value of offers.

(c) A price analysis will be performed. Prices will be evaluated to ensure reasonableness. Also, the CO
may evaluate prices to ensure they are not so low as to present a performance risk or to indicate a lack of
understanding of the requirements. The CO may also consider whether individual CLIN prices are
unbalanced.

(d) The following factors and significant subfactors (if listed), will be considered in evaluating proposals
and making the source selection:

Factor 1: Technical Plan for Construction: The offeror’s proposed approach in its Technical Plan for
Construction will be evaluated to determine the offeror understands the requirements of the contract and
