G.1 Ordering (Applicable to CLINs 0004, 0008 - 0010 and Option CLINs 0014, 0017, 0018, and
0020 - 0023)

    a.      Ordering. The contractor shall perform work hereunder when an order is issued by the Contracting Officer
            in accordance with the procedures specified herein. The Government will not be liable for any expenses
            incurred by the contractor under any CLIN unless a modification is issued by the Contracting officer. Each
            order will be prepared on Standard Form 30, Amendment of Solicitation/Modification of Contract. Each
            order will contain a Statement of Work setting forth in detail the work to be performed or description and
            quantity of equipment to be procured, the requirements for inspection and acceptance, the period of
            performance, and method of payment. All orders are subject to the terms and conditions of the contract. In
            the event of conflict between an order and the contract, the terms and conditions of the contract shall take
            precedence.

    b.      Cost Proposal Preparation. When requested by the FAA Contracting Officer, the contractor shall provide
            a proposal within ten (10) calendar days from receipt of a Statement of Work acceptable to both parties.
            The proposal shall identify the number and category of labor hours, materials, and travel (if applicable)
            necessary to complete the work. Labor categories and rates shall be limited to those set forth in the Tables
            of SECTION B.

    c.      Limitation of Government Liability. The not-to-exceed price specified in each order shall be the
            limitation of Government’s obligation to pay for the services and/or other requirements being ordered. If at
            any time the contractor has reason to believe that the total price to the Government for the services and/or
            other requirements ordered will be substantially greater than the not-to-exceed price, the contractor shall
            promptly notify the Contracting officer in writing. Adjustments to the not-to-exceed price of individual
            orders will be accomplished by execution of a contract modification.

    d.      Segregation of Costs. The contractor shall segregate all incurred costs for work allocable to each order by
            CLIN, labor categories and fiscal year. The requirements for the contractor to segregate the costs of each
            order shall continue until completion of the work and order close-out. The contractor is not authorized to
            transfer funds between orders. Each order stands on its own and is a separate entity.

    e.      Close-out. Within (60) days of completion of each order, an authorized representative of the contractor
            shall certify, in writing, to the Contracting Officer the number of actual hours used in each labor category
            and all reimbursable costs incurred in the performance of the order. This certification shall also identify
            who performed the work, i.e. prime contractor or a specific subcontractor. Upon receipt of this information,
            the not-to-exceed price will be adjusted by contract modification setting forth the actual number of hours

           and the final incurred costs. This will result in closeout of the order. In no event will the final incurred costs
           exceed the not-to-exceed ceiling price of the order.

      f.   Payment. Payment under each order shall be in accordance with the clause at AMS 3.3.1-5 Payments
           under Time-and-Materials and Labor Hour Contracts and AMS 3.3.1-1 Payments.

G.4       Contracting Officer's Authority

      a) The Contracting Officer assigned to this contract has responsibility for ensuring the performance of
         all necessary actions for effective contracting; ensuring compliance with the terms of the contract
         and safeguarding the interests of the United States in its contractual relationships. Accordingly, the
         Contracting Officer is the only individual who has the authority to enter into, administer, or
         terminate this contract. In addition, the Contracting Officer is the only person authorized to approve
         changes to any of the requirements under this contract, and notwithstanding any provision contained
         elsewhere in this contract, this authority remains solely with the Contracting Officer.

      b) The Contracting Officer may designate, in writing, representatives to perform functions required to
         administer this contract. However, any implied or expressed actions taken by these representatives
         must be within the limits cited within the Contracting Officer’s written designations. The
         Contracting Officer shall provide the Contractor copies of all relevant written designations. If any
         individual alleges to be a representative of the Contracting Officer and the Contractor has not
         received a copy of the document designating that representative, the Contractor shall refrain from
         acting upon the representative’s requirements and immediately contact the Contracting Officer to
         obtain a copy of the document designating that individual as a representative of the Contracting
         Officer.

      c) It is the responsibility of the Contractor to contact the Contracting Officer immediately if there is
         even the appearance of any technical direction that is or may be outside the scope of the contract.

      d) Work not ordered by the Contracting Officer and/or work outside the scope of the contract shall not
         be reimbursed by the Government. The Contractor shall immediately notify the Contracting Officer
         for clarification when a question arises regarding the authority of any person to act for the
         Contracting Officer under this contract. In the event the Contractor effects any change at the
         direction of any person other than the Contracting Officer, the change will be considered to have
         been made without authority and no adjustment will be made in the contract price to cover any
         increase in charges incurred as a result thereof.

      e) The Contractor shall submit request for modification(s) of this contract to the Contracting Officer,
         with a copy of the request to any appointed Contracting Officer’s Technical Representative
         (COTR).

G.5       Contracting Officer’s Technical Representative

      a) The Contracting Officer may designate other Government personnel (known as the Contracting
         Officer's Technical Representative) to act as his or her authorized representative for contract

          administration functions, which do not involve changes to the scope, price, schedule, or terms and
          conditions of the contract. The designation will be in writing, signed by the Contracting Officer,
          and will set forth the authorities and limitations of the representative(s) under the contract. Such
          designation will not contain authority to sign contractual documents, order contract changes,
          modify contract terms, or create any commitment or liability on the part of the Government
          different from that set forth in the contract.

      b) The Contractor shall immediately contact the Contracting Officer if there is any question
         regarding the authority of an individual to act on behalf of the Contracting Officer under this
         contract.

G.10    Limitation of Funds (April 1996)

(a) The parties estimate that performance of this contract will not cost the FAA more than:

(1) the estimated cost specified in the "Schedule" or,

(2) if this is a cost-sharing contract, the FAA 's share of the estimated cost specified in the "Schedule".

The Contractor agrees to use its best efforts to perform the work specified in the "Schedule" and all
obligations under this contract within the estimated cost, which, if this is a cost-sharing contract, includes
both the FAA 's and the Contractor's share of the cost.

(b) The "Schedule" specifies the amount presently available for payment by the FAA and allotted to this
contract, the items covered, the FAA's share of the cost if this is a cost-sharing contract, and the period of
performance it is estimated the allotted amount will cover. The parties contemplate that the FAA will allot
additional funds incrementally to the contract up to the full estimated cost to the FAA specified in the
"Schedule", exclusive of any fee. The Contractor agrees to perform, or have performed, work on the
contract up to the point at which the total amount paid and payable by the FAA under the contract
approximates but does not exceed the total amount actually allotted by the FAA to the contract.

(c) The Contractor shall notify the Contracting Officer in writing whenever it has reason to believe that
the costs it expects to incur under this contract in the next 60 days, when added to all costs previously
incurred, will exceed 75 percent of:

(1) the total amount so far allotted to the contract by the FAA or,

(2) if this is a cost-sharing contract, the amount then allotted to the contract by the FAA plus the
Contractor's corresponding share. The notice shall state the estimated amount of additional funds required
to continue performance for the period specified in the "Schedule".

(d) Sixty days before the end of the period specified in the "Schedule", the Contractor shall notify the
Contracting Officer in writing of the estimated amount of additional funds, if any, required to continue
timely performance under the contract or for any further period specified in the "Schedule" or otherwise
agreed upon, and when the funds will be required.

(e) If, after notification, additional funds are not allotted by the end of the period specified in the
"Schedule" or another agreed-upon date, upon the Contractor's written request the Contracting Officer
will terminate this contract on that date in accordance with the provisions of the "Termination" clause of
this contract. If the Contractor estimates that the funds available will allow it to continue to discharge its
obligations beyond that date, it may specify a later date in its request, and the Contracting Officer may
terminate this contract on that later date.

(f) Except as required by other provisions of this contract, specifically citing and stated to be an exception

                               CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION DATA
to this clause--

(1) The FAA is not obligated to reimburse the Contractor for costs incurred in excess of the total amount
allotted by the FAA to this contract; and

(2) The Contractor is not obligated to continue performance under this contract (including actions under
the "Termination" clause of this contract) or otherwise incur costs in excess of (i) the amount then allotted
to the contract by the FAA or, (ii) if this is a cost-sharing contract, the amount then allotted by the FAA to
the contract plus the Contractor's corresponding share, until the Contracting Officer notifies the
Contractor in writing that the amount allotted by the FAA has been increased and specifies an increased
amount, which shall then constitute the total amount allotted by the FAA to this contract.

(g) The estimated cost shall be increased to the extent that:

(1) the amount allotted by the FAA or,

(2) if this is a cost-sharing contract, the amount then allotted by the FAA to the contract plus the
Contractor's corresponding share, exceeds the estimated cost specified in the "Schedule."

If this is a cost-sharing contract, the increase shall be allocated in accordance with the formula specified
in the "Schedule."

(h) No notice, communication, or representation in any form other than that specified in subparagraph
(f)(2) above, or from any person other than the Contracting Officer, shall affect the amount allotted by the
FAA to this contract. In the absence of the specified notice, the FAA is not obligated to reimburse the
Contractor for any costs in excess of the total amount allotted by the FAA to this contract, whether
incurred during the course of the contract or as a result of termination.

(i) When and to the extent that the amount allotted by the FAA to the contract is increased, any costs the
Contractor incurs before the increase that are in excess of

(1) the amount previously allotted by the FAA or,

(2) if this is a cost-sharing contract, the amount previously allotted by the FAA to the contract plus the
Contractor's corresponding share, shall be allowable to the same extent as if incurred afterward, unless the
Contracting Officer issues a termination or other notice and directs that the increase is solely to cover
termination or other specified expenses.

(j) Change orders shall not be considered an authorization to exceed the amount allotted by the FAA
specified in the "Schedule", unless they contain a statement increasing the amount allotted.

G.13    FAA Internal Reviews of Contractor Performance

Notwithstanding the requirement that price must always be assessed by the Contracting Officer as being
reasonable, the FAA places a high value on the Contractor providing a high level of quality support in
performing this contract. This FAA emphasis on the importance of quality performance initiated in
awarding this contract will be ongoing throughout the duration of this contract. Accordingly, the FAA will
periodically, as subsequently scheduled by the Contracting Officer, conduct formal internal reviews focused
on assessing the quality of the Contractor’s performance. The Contracting Officer will share the summary
results of these ongoing reviews with the Contractor as a means of providing ongoing feedback on the
FAA’s perception of Contractor performance. Should these reviews disclose a pattern of poor performance,
lack of adherence to contractual requirements, negligence or other unfavorable trends, the FAA may
terminate or, not exercise options in, this contract. Additionally, completed FAA internal review reports of
Contractor performance will be maintained in the FAA’s past performance database, which may be used by
other Federal, State and local Government personnel in future procurements.

       purposes only.
