of its employees who are "Q" cleared or who are "Q" clearable. In the event the

to participate in the Department of Energy's (DOE) Accelerated Access Authorization
Program (AAAP).   The AAAP is fully explained in the attachment to this Request For
Quotation/Contract titled, Accelerated Access Authorization Program.

The Contractor's employee(s) willingness to participate in the AAAP must be supported
by consent forms signed by the Contractor's employee(s) proposed for work under this
contract. Signed consent forms must accompany the Contractor's reply to the Request

for Quotation (RFQ). Contractor shall agree to process AAAP clearance requests for
additional or replacement persons after contract award when requested to do so by the
SCR.

The Department of Energy (DOE) will bear all AAAP costs associated with the
Contractor's personnel submittals either in reply to the RFQ or to any later SCR
requests for additional or replacement persons. The Contractor is therefore strongly
encouraged to submit only those of its employees it believes have a good possibility
