        (Please provide a separate estimate for each contract. You may provide an annual estimate, if applicable, or

                       DEFENSE BASE ACT (DBA) APPLICATION

Full Name of Insured or Company and Complete Mailing Address:

This is whoever has the contract with Army Contracting Command (ACC)-Kuwait. Generally, it is a company
name, but it could be an Independent Consultant, hence asking for the full name of the insured or company. It
should be as it is on your contract from ACC-KU/408 (or the contract from the prime contractor if you are a
subcontractor). If you are a subcontractor, you would indicate your name and address, not that of the prime
contractor. You do not need to list the names of the employees (or consultants, if hired by a company) who are
actually going to be doing the work overseas as the policy will be in the name of the contract holder.

Telephone Number and Fax Number:

Contact Person: This would be the person we send the complete policy and invoice to (generally the person who
contacts Rutherfoord for the coverage, but it may be someone else in your company—if so, please be sure they are
aware that they will be receiving this policy from Rutherfoord).

Email: This should be the email address for the contact person.

Coverage Effective Date: This is generally the date the contract starts or becomes effective. All initial policies will
be open for 1 year from this date, with renewal an option, if needed. If you need to add or increase coverage during
the policy period, please indicate a new effective date for the change, as the policy period will remain the same
based on the original effective date.

Contract Number: This is your specific contract number issued by Army Contracting Command (ACC) Kuwait. If
you are a subcontractor, please indicate the prime contractor’s contract number on the application and not your
subcontract number.

Total Labor Cost: There should be only one (1) figure on the application for labor cost, regardless of how many
people are traveling to do the work. Labor costs should be direct salary (plus overseas recruitment incentive,
danger/hazard pay, and post differential) but excluding per diem, travel expenses, housing allowance, temporary
quarters allowance, education allowance and other miscellaneous post allowance. To calculate, you would take the
daily rate of each worker multiplied by the number of working days only and this would equal the Labor Cost. For
example, you have 5 people working overseas on the contract for $500 per day, for 15 days. The total labor cost
you would indicate on the application would be $37,500. We would then take the $37,500 and multiply it by the rate
for the coverage and that would equal the premium we would charge. The current rates as of 4/1/11 are Service
$3.50 per $100 of payroll; Construction $4.25 per $100 of payroll; Security $10.00 per $100 of payroll and
Aviation $17.00 per $100 of payroll. So, the premium based on the preceding example would be $1,313; $1,594;
$3,750 and $6,375, respectively. We round all labor costs and premiums to the nearest whole dollar. You can also
include the labor cost for consultants here to be covered under your policy.

          Please only put your TOTAL LABOR COST on the application, NOT your DBA premium!

**Do not include subcontractor’s payroll costs in your ACC-KU DBA policy Application. Subcontractors
must obtain an ACC-KU DBA policy in their own name. Subcontractors must provide the “prime” contract
number when completing an application.**

Brief Description of Work to be performed:

Principal Country(ies) in which contract will be performed:

Date, Signature and Title: We have an e-mail version of our application (a word version document) which can be
completed, saved and e-mailed back to the POCs Nikki Houngmany at or Sara Payne at This method is preferred, and the date, signature, and title should also be typed on
the application, even if you do not have an electronic signature. One copy returned is all that is needed; you do not
need to fax a signed copy or send the original by mail.

•         Please do not complete and return the application to us if you have not actually been awarded a
contract. If you need to know the cost for quoting purposes, please use the example above under payroll to
calculate the cost.

•        All of the policies we issue for this coverage are annual (1 year policies); however, we only bill
premiums based on the time the workers are overseas. Unless the workers will be overseas for at least 1 year
where you can give an annual labor cost, the policy can be endorsed as needed during the policy year for
additional trips or new contracts can be added, deleted, etc. at that time.

•        This policy is renewable, if needed, with a renewal sheet being sent to you approximately 1 month
prior to your policy expiration.

•         This policy is audited at the end of your policy year, which is basically a worksheet that we will send
indicating the contract number(s) and labor cost(s) that are given to us during the year. You would then
indicate the actual labor cost for the contract and we would adjust the payrolls accordingly.
