GOVERNMENT PROPERTY

 

PURPOSE:  This PN revises the NASA FAR Supplement (NFS) to update Agency-level, property-related provisions, clauses, prescriptions and procedures to be consistent with changes made to Part 45 and Part 52.245 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) in Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-17.   This rewrite of NFS Part 1845 and Subpart 1852.245 realigns Agency regulations with the new definitions, practices and policy of the FAR.  The revised Government Property regulations foster efficiency, flexibility, innovation and creativity while continuing to protect the Government’s interest. 

 

In addition, this PN implements Agency-level procedures, solicitation provisions, and contract clause language necessary  to identify contractor-acquired assets which become capital assets of the Government, in order to comply with Statement of Federal Financial Accounting Standard (SFFAS) No. 6. 

 

This PN implements a complete rewrite of NFS Part 45, including CFR and non-CFR portions.

 

BACKGROUND:  Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-17 implemented the final rule amending the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) to simplify procedures, clarify language, and eliminate obsolete requirements related to the management and disposition of Government property in the possession of contractors.  FAC 2005-17 significantly rewrote FAR Part 45, Government Property, and changed property-related definitions, provisions and clauses and required use of the revised solicitations and clauses in all solicitations and contracts issued after the effective date of 14 June, 2007.   

 

GUIDANCE:  With the publication of this PN, PIC 07-09 “Class Deviation to Provide Interim NASA Government Property Solicitation Provisions and Contract Clauses” and PIC 05-07, “Documentation Requirements for Government-Furnished Property, are cancelled.”

 

This PN does not void the reporting requirements of PICs 03-14, 03-18, and 04-12, and the property financial reporting requirements of those PICs are still in effect.  In summary, PIC 04-12 requires contractor monthly property financial reporting in the Contractor-Held Asset Tracking System (CHATS) for all contracts anticipated to have Government property with an acquisition value greater than $10 million. 

 

ACQUISITIONS AFFECTED BY CHANGES:  All acquisitions potentially involving the furnishing of Government Property (including Contractor Acquired Property, CAP) or the maintenance, repair, transfer or loan of Government Property.

 

ACTION REQUIRED BY CONTRACTING OFFICERS:   All solicitations issued and contracts awarded on or after the effective date of this PN shall be made in accordance with the policies and procedures contained herein and shall utilize the solicitation provisions and contract in accordance with the prescriptions and instructions contained herein. 

 

Solicitations issued prior to this PN should be amended to include the applicable provisions and clauses if a contract has not been awarded. When the proposal evaluation process has already begun, the clauses may be negotiated into the resulting contract where practicable.  

 

COs may review contracts awarded before the effective date of this PN to determine, on a case by case basis,  the desirability of modifying the contracts to contain the new clauses. In some situations, it may be found that both the Government and the contractor benefit from the new clauses; however, many of the clauses are interconnected in such a way that if the new clauses are desirable, all applicable new clauses must be included as well as the FAR property clauses issued in FAC 2005-17.[lcp1] 

 

CLAUSE CHANGES: Clauses 1852.245–70 through 1852.245–80 are revised, and clauses 1852.245–81 through 1852.245–83 are added.

 

PARTS AFFECTED:  Parts 1845, 1852, and Matrix.

  

REPLACEMENT PAGES:  You may use the enclosed pages to replace Part 1845, 52:3 thru 52:11, 52:103 thru 52: 114, 52:114.1 (added), 52:114.2 (added), 52:114.4 (added), 52:121, 52:122, and 52:123 of the NFS.

 

TYPE OF RULE AND PUBLICATION DATE:  Final rule, 76 FR 2001-2011, January 12, 2011.

PART 1845

GOVERNMENT PROPERTY

 

Subpart 1845.1—General

 

1845.102 Policy.

 

1845.102-70 NASA policy.

   (a) In addition to the criteria cited in FAR 45.102 which must be demonstrated before providing property to contractors, contracting officers shall carefully consider the following factors when deciding if it is in the Government’s best interest to provide Government property for the performance of a contract.  Providing Government property —

         (1)  increases the Government’s administrative burden and requires recordkeeping and personnel.

         (2)  may dilute the contractor’s overall responsibility and weaken guarantees, end-item delivery requirements, and other contract terms.

         (3)  may make NASA responsible for delays in that the Agency assumes responsibility for scheduling delivery of the property and the operability of the property.

         (4)  carries its own inherent risk that the property may be lost, damaged, destroyed or misused, resulting in a loss of funds that could otherwise be used to support NASA’s mission.

         (5)  which is commercially available may confer a competitive advantage to contractors who have not taken on the same investment risk as their competitors.  Contractors who plan for the Government’s provision of commercially available equipment are passing those investment risks to the Government.

         (6)  may be counterproductive to socio-economic programs which encourage small businesses to develop through capital investment. 

   (b) The contracting officer shall obtain the approval of the Center Real Property Accountable Officer prior to negotiating, or entering into any real property leaseholds, permits, licenses or disposition actions.  The contracting officer shall advise the Center Real Property Accountable Officer when the place of performance is on a NASA center or facility and the contractor will be offered space and utilities under NFS1852.245-77.

 

1845.102-71 Solicitation and review procedures.

   (a) Each solicitation, as applicable, shall include the following:

       (1) A list of any Government property available to be furnished, quantities, locations, conditions, and any related information.

       (2) A requirement that offerors identify any Government property in their possession proposed for use during contract performance.  The items, quantities, locations, acquisition costs, and proposed rental terms must be provided, along with identification of the Government contract under which the property is accountable.

       (3) A requirement that requested Government provided facilities be described and identified by the classifications in 1845.7101-1.

       (4) A requirement that offerors provide, if applicable, the date of the last Government property control system review, a summary of the findings and recommendations, and contractor corrective actions taken. 

   (b) The contracting officer shall provide a copy of the solicitation (or contract if no solicitation is used) to the center supply and equipment management officer (SEMO) for review for acquisitions with an estimated cost greater than $1,000,000, or for acquisitions over $50,000 when work is to be performed at the center, existing Government property is being furnished, or contract acquisition of Government property is required or permitted. 

 

1845.103-70 General.  

   (a) Contracting officers are responsible for overall management of their contracts, including the management of Government property provided to contractors under NASA Contracts.

   (b) Contracting officers shall fully document decisions to provide property, including authorization for contractors to purchase property as a direct cost to the Contract.  This documentation shall clearly demonstrate that the provision of property is in the Government’s best interests in accordance with FAR 45.102.

    (c) Contracting officers shall review the contractor’s requests for provision of Government property under the clause at 1852.245-70 to determine whether authorizing the provision of Government property is an appropriate business decision according to the policy at 1845.102-70(a).  

   (d) Contracting officers may solicit the opinion of the technical officer regarding the technical need for the property. However, technical need, in and of itself, is not sufficient reason for providing Government property.  If the property is required to satisfy technical needs, it is still assumed to be in the Government’s best interest to require the contractor to use contractor-owned property for contract performance.

   (e) Contracting officers shall assure that all changes to contract property involving the provision of additional Government-furnished property or reduction of existing property are noted in the contract by insertion or modification of the clause at 1852.245-76, and are recorded or reported for recording in the appropriate NASA property management information records.

   (f) Contracting officers shall document the file on the determination to provide Government property and shall forward copies of any approved requests to —

         (1) The Center Deputy Chief Financial Officer (DCFO) when an item of property or, in the case of a contract for construction, the total value of property being constructed by the contractor is expected to result in the acquisition or construction cost exceeding the NASA capitalization threshold of $100,000; and,

         (2) The NASA Center IPO, when the contractor is not authorized to conduct its own screening of available inventory.

   (g) IPOs shall coordinate screening with center reutilization personnel to determine the availability of existing Government inventory and excess.

         (1) The IPO shall notify the contracting officer (CO) of the availability of property as soon as possible after receipt of the approved request from the CO.

         (2) The IPO shall assist the CO in the coordination of the transfer and oversee property documentation of the transfer of existing Government property to the contractor.

 

1845.104 Responsibility and liability for Government property.

   (b) When the Property Administrator, with the concurrence of the Industrial Property Officer (IPO), determines and reports that the contractor’s property management practices are inadequate and/or present an undue risk to the Government, contracting officers shall revoke the Government’s assumption of risk or take other action to mitigate the risk of loss, damage, destruction, or theft of Government property.

 

1845.106 Transferring Accountability.

   (a) When furnishing existing Government property to the contractor, contracting officers shall —

         (1)     Insert NFS clause 1852.245-76, List of Government Property Furnished Pursuant to FAR 52.245-1, if not already included in the contract; and 

         (2)  Modify the list in 1852.245-76 to include any property furnished after award.

   (b)  In addition to modification of the list, transfers of property shall be recorded on a “shipping” or “transfer” document such as the DD Form 1149 “Shipping/Transfer Document”. 

         (1)  Centers may use equivalent documents that contain the same information. 

         (2)  This requirement includes physically transferred property and property transferred in place. 

         (3)  Contracting officer technical representatives are responsible for creation of shipping documents, based on the contractor’s requests and contracting officer’s approval, and are considered “shippers” for this purpose.

         (4)  Shippers will segregate items valued over $100,000 and request the transfer of these items on separate documents.

         (5)  The transfer documents must be complete and must include the following information for all items with a value greater than $5,000:   Description of Property; Property Identification Number; Value; Capital Value (if applicable); Property Classification; Federal Supply Classification; Gaining Contract; Acquisition Date.

   (6) Contracting officers must approve all shipping documents prior to property movement. 

(c)  In addition to the requirements in paragraphs (a) and (b), when property valued at $100,000 or more is received and accepted by NASA or NASA’s representative within the contractor’s facilities, and that property is to remain in the contractor’s custody for further work or to be otherwise used in the performance of the contract, the property must be added to the appropriate NASA property system in accordance with NPR 4200.1, NASA Equipment Management Procedural Requirements and NPR 4200.2, Equipment Management Manual for Property Custodians.

 

1845.107 Contract clauses.

 

1845.107–70 NASA solicitation provisions and contract clauses.

   (a)(1) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–70, Contractor Requests for Government-Provided Property, in cost reimbursement solicitations and contracts.

         (2) Use the clause with its Alternate I when the center Supply and Equipment Management Officer (SEMO) consents to permit the contractor to screen Government inventory for available property in lieu of contractor acquisition of new items.

   (b)(1) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–71, Installation—Accountable Government Property, in solicitations and contracts when Government property is to be made available to a contractor working on a NASA installation, and the Government will maintain accountability for the property. The contracting officer shall list in the clause the applicable property user responsibilities. For purposes of this clause, NASA installations include local off-site buildings owned or leased by NASA.

         (2) Use of this clause is subject to the SEMO’s concurrence that adequate Government property management resources are available for oversight of the property in accordance with all applicable NASA installation property management directives.

         (3) The contracting officer shall identify, in the contract, the nature, quantity, and acquisition cost of the property and make it available on a no charge basis.

         (4) The contracting officer shall use the clause with its Alternate I if the SEMO requests that the contractor be restricted from use of the center central receiving facility for the purposes of receiving contractor-acquired property.

         (5) For contractors with both onsite and offsite performance requirements, contracting officers shall list Government property provided for offsite use separately in the contract. This Government property is furnished under FAR 52.245–1, Government Property, and remains accountable to the contractor during its use on the contract. This Government property is not subject to the clause at 1852.245–71, Installation—Accountable Government Property. The contracting officer shall address any specific maintenance considerations (e.g., requiring or precluding use of an installation calibration or repair facility) elsewhere in the contract.

   (c) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–72, Liability for e

Government Property Furnished for Repair or Other Services, in fixed-price, time-and-material, and labor-hour solicitations and contracts (except for experimental, developmental, or research work with educational or nonprofit institutions, where no profit is contemplated) for repair, modification, rehabilitation, or other servicing of Government property, if such property is to be furnished to a contractor for that purpose and no other Government property is to be furnished. The contracting officer shall not require additional insurance under the clause unless the circumstances clearly indicate advantages to the Government.

   (d) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–73, Financial

Reporting of NASA Property in the Custody of Contractors, in cost reimbursement solicitations and contracts unless all property to be provided is subject to the clause at 1852.245–71, Installation-Accountable Government Property. The clause shall also be included in other types of solicitations and contracts when it is known at award that property will be provided to the contractor or that the contractor will acquire property title to which will vest in the Government prior to delivery.

   (e) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–74, Identification and Marking of Government Property, in solicitations and contracts that—

         (1) Include the clause at FAR 52.245–1; or

         (2) Require the delivery of supplies.

   (f) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–75, Property Management Changes, in solicitations and contracts that provide for progress payments or include any of the property clauses prescribed in FAR Part 45.

   (g) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–76, List of Government Property Furnished Pursuant to FAR 52.245–1, in solicitations and contracts when the contractor is to be accountable under the contract for Government property.

   (h) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–77, List of Government Property Furnished Pursuant to FAR 52.245–2, in solicitations and contracts containing the clause at 52.245–2, Government Property Installation Operation Services. In addition, the contracting officer shall insert the following language in the blanks in paragraph (e) of the clause at 52.245–2: 

         ‘‘The Government property provided under this clause is identified in clause 1852.245–77 of this contract.’’

   (i)  The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–78, Physical Inventory of Capital Personal Property, in cost reimbursement and fixed-price solicitations and contracts that provide Government property.

   (j) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–79, Records and Disposition Reports for Government Property with Potential Historic or Significant Real Value, in solicitations and contracts when, after consultation with the center Historic Preservation Officer, it is determined that the items acquired for or produced by the contract are likely to have historic significance or increased value due to their use in support of NASA projects and programs.

   (k)(1) The contracting officer shall insert the provision at 1852.245–80, Government Property Management Information, in solicitations when it is known, or there is a reasonable chance, that Government property will be provided to the contractor for contract performance.

         (2) The contracting officer shall use the provision with Alternate 1 when there are sufficient time and resources to allow prospective contractors the opportunity to inspect the property.

   (l) The contracting officer shall insert the provision at 1852.245–81, List of Available Government Property, in solicitations when Government property will be made available for contract performance.

   (m) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–82, Occupancy Management Requirements, in solicitations and contracts that require performance on, or in, any NASA Center, Installation, facility or other NASA owned property.

   (n) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.245–83 Real Property Management Requirements, in solicitations and contracts for acquisition, construction, modification (including when the modification is a consequence of another approved task, e.g., installation of telephonic or local area network equipment), demolition, or management of real property.

 

Subpart 1845.2—Solicitation and Evaluation Procedures

 

1845.201 Solicitation.

 

1845.201-70 NASA solicitation preparation procedures.

   (a) The contracting officer shall provide a copy of the solicitation (or contract if no solicitation is used) to the center Industrial Property Officer (IPO) for review when --  

    (1) A cost-reimbursement contract is anticipated;

    (2) The value of the acquisition exceeds the simplified acquisition threshold and the work is to be performed within the physical confines of the center;

    (3) Existing Government property may be furnished; or

    (4) Contractors may acquire property that will be titled to the Government under the provisions of FAR 52.245-1, Government Property.

   (b) IPOs shall review the solicitation to —

    (1) Ensure the correct application of property clauses based on the contract type, situation, and product or services ordered;

    (2) Ascertain the contract’s possible impact on center property or logistics operations and advise the center’s Supply and Equipment Management Officer of those possible impacts; and

    (3) Assure that appropriate property transactions for existing Government property, from internal sources and prior contracts, have been properly reported to NASA property and financial systems.

   (c)(1) Items of Government property used to support NASA programs often become historically significant.  In addition, property used by NASA programs often has value that exceeds other property with identical material or physical characteristics.  This is particularly true for property that has flown in space.  Descriptions of physical characteristics and condition are insufficient to determine an item’s historic significance or real value.  NASA Center Historic Preservation Officers are responsible for determining whether property meets the criteria for designation as historically significant.  It is essential that items of historic significance are retained for the benefit of current and future generations.  NASA must also obtain maximum value for property offered for sale.

    (2) The contracting officer shall contact the Center Historic Preservation Officer to determine whether the items acquired for or produced by the contract are likely to have historic significance or increased value due to their use in support of NASA projects and programs. 

    (3) Center Historic Preservation Officers shall advise the contracting officer when they believe that property produced or acquired for the Government under the contract may have increased historic significance or increased value due to its use in support of NASA activities or programs.

 

1845.201-71 Plant reconversion and plant clearance.

   The Assistant Administrator for Procurement is the approval authority for any solicitation provision or contract clause that would defer negotiation of costs for plant reconversion or plant clearance until after award. 

 

1845.202 Evaluation procedures.

 

1845.202-70 NASA evaluation procedures.

   (a) The contracting officer shall request Industrial Property Officer (IPO) or Property Administrator (PA) assistance in evaluations of the offeror’s proposed systems, standards and practices for the management of Government property.

   (b) The contracting officer shall provide the offeror’s proposed property management standards and practices to the IPO for review and evaluation prior to award.                      

   (c) IPOs shall review proposals to determine whether or not the offeror’s proposed industry leading standards and practices and/or voluntary consensus standards are sufficient to manage property, from planning through disposition, under the circumstances of the contract. 

    (1) If the IPO is unfamiliar with the offeror, the circumstances of the contract or the performance situation, the IPO may request the assistance of the cognizant PA for evaluation of the standards, practices, situation and history of property management performance at the offeror’s place of performance.

    (2) The IPO shall provide a written evaluation, listing any proposed changes or improvements, to the contracting officer prior to award.

   (d) The contracting officer shall require changes or improvements to the offeror’s property management practices, standards, or processes as recommended by the IPO.  The contracting officer shall advise the offeror that its property management practices, standards, and processes will not be considered adequate for the protection, preservation, and management of Government property, and that the Government will not accept risk under the property clause until the recommended changes or improvements are made.

   (e) When an offeror’s proposal requests the Government to provide commercially available equipment, and the commercially available equipment is not required as an end item deliverable or part thereof, the contracting officer should assure the integrity of the competitive process by —

    (1) Adjusting the offeror’s proposal to compensate for the value of the Government-provided, commercially available equipment; or

    (2) Charging appropriate rent in accordance with the clause at FAR 52.245-9, Use and Charges. As the purpose for rent is to obtain just consideration for the Government’s assumption of risk and cost, rent for commercially available equipment provided after award may not be treated as an allowable direct cost under the contract.

 

Subpart 1845.3—Authorizing the Use and Rental of Government Property

 

1845.301 Use and rental.

 

1845.301-70 Use of property on other Government contracts.

   (a) NASA contracting officers having cognizance over NASA property may authorize its rent-free use on other NASA contracts and contracts of other agencies if such use will not interfere with NASA’s primary purpose for the property and will not extend beyond the expected expiration or completion date of the NASA contract.

   (b) Contracting officers shall obtain the concurrence of the gaining contracting officer when they intend to authorize the rent free use of Government property for performance under the gaining contracting officer’s cognizance.

 

1845.301–71 Use of Government property for commercial work.

   (a) The coverage at FAR 45.3 applies to a contractor’s commercial (any non-Government) use of any NASA equipment.

   (b)(1) The Center Procurement Officer is the approval authority for non-Government use of equipment exceeding 25 percent.

         (2)  The percentage of Government and non-Government use shall be computed on the basis of time available for use.  For this purpose, the contractor’s normal work schedule, as represented by scheduled production shift hours, shall be used.  All equipment having a unit acquisition cost of less than $100,000 at any single location may be averaged over a quarterly period.  Equipment having a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or more shall be considered on an item-by-item basis.

         (3) Approvals for non-Government use, less than 25 percent, may not exceed 1 year.  Approval for non-Government use in excess of 25 percent shall not exceed 3 months.

         (4)     Requests for the approval shall be submitted to the Center Procurement Officer at least 6 weeks in advance of the projected use and shall include—

                  (i)  The number of equipment items involved and their total acquisition cost; and

                  (ii)  An itemized listing of equipment having an acquisition cost of $100,000 or more, showing for each item the nomenclature, year of manufacture, and acquisition cost.

 

1845.302 Use of Government property on contracts with foreign governments or international organizations.

   (a) NASA contracting officers will recover a fair share of the cost of Government property if such property is used in performing services or manufacturing articles for foreign countries or for international organizations.

   (b)   Contracting officers shall obtain written authorization from the Assistant Administrator for Procurement and concurrence from the Manager of Contract Property Programs, Logistics Division, Office of  Strategic Infrastructure; the Office of General Counsel (Headquarters); and the Headquarters Office of External Relations before allowing the use of Government production and research property on work for foreign countries or for international organizations.

   (c)  Contracting officers shall forward requests, along with a summary of the circumstances involved, including as a minimum:

         (1)   The name of the requesting contractor;

         (2)   The number of the contract under which the property is controlled;

         (3)   A description of the property;

         (4)   The name of the foreign contractor and the relationship of the foreign contractor to its government or to any international organization;

         (5)   A description of the articles to be manufactured or services to be performed;

Subpart 1845.6—Reporting, Reutilization, and Disposal

 

1845.602-3  Screening.

      (a) Property Disposal Officers (PDOs) are the center focal points for intra-agency reutilization screening.

        (1) When property is reported for disposition through PCARSS or on manual inventory schedules, PDOs shall make that information available to procurement and program offices seeking to acquire similar, new property in accordance with the agency inventory and other agency excess utilization requirements of FAR Part 8.

      (2) When property is reported for disposition through NASA DSPL systems, the PDO shall screen and process the disposition in accordance with NPR 4200.1, NASA Personal Property Disposal Procedural Requirements and related guidance.

      (b)  Waiver of screening requirements. The Director, Logistics Division Office of Strategic Infrastructure will approve deviations from intra-agency screening requirements.

 

1845.603   Abandonment, destruction or donation of excess personal property.

   The center property disposal officer (PDO) shall review abandonment or destruction determinations in accordance with NPR 4300.1.

 

1845.604  Restrictions on purchase or retention of contractor inventory.

   (1) No contractor may sell contractor inventory to persons known by it to be NASA or DOD personnel who have been engaged in administering or terminating NASA contracts.

   (2)(i)  The contractor's or subcontractor's authority to approve the sale, purchase, or retention of Government property on a contract which is excess to needs after Government reutilization screening at less than cost by a subcontractor, and the subcontractor's authority to sell, purchase, or retain such property at less than cost with the approval of the contractor or next higher-tier subcontractor does not include authority to approve --

            (A)  A sale by a subcontractor to the contractor, the next higher-tier subcontractor, or their affiliates; or

            (B)  A sale, purchase, or retention by a subcontractor affiliated with the contractor or next higher-tier subcontractor.

       (ii) Each excluded sale, purchase, or retention requires the written approval of the plant clearance officer.

 

1845.604-4   Proceeds of sale.

(a) Sale of surplus contractor inventory. The plant clearance officer shall maintain an open suspense record until verifying that credit has been applied, unless another Government representative has specifically assumed this responsibility.

 

1845.604-70   Contractor inventory in foreign countries.

      NASA procedures for disposal are in NPR 4300.1, NASA Personal Property Disposal Procedures and Guidelines.

 

1845.605-70 Inventory disposal report.

   A copy of Standard Form 1424, Inventory Disposal Report, shall be provided to the center industrial property officer or the PDO.

 

1845.606 Disposal of scrap.

Subpart 1845.70—Reserved

 

Subpart 1845.71—Forms Preparation

 

1845.7101  Instructions for preparing NASA Form 1018.

   NASA must account for and report assets in accordance with 31 U.S.C. 3512 and 31 U.S.C. 3515, Federal Accounting Standards, and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) instructions.  Since contractors maintain NASA’s official records for its assets in their possession, NASA must obtain periodic data from those records to meet these requirements.  Changes in Federal Accounting Standards and OMB reporting requirements may occur from year to year, requiring contractor submission of supplemental information with the NASA Form (NF) 1018.  The specific Statements of Federal Financial Accounting Standards (SFFAS) to be used for property records are SFFAS No. 3 “Accounting for Inventory and Related Property”, SFFAS No. 6 “Accounting for Property, Plant and Equipment”, SFFAS No. 10 “Accounting for Internal Use Software”, and SFFAS No. 11 “Amendments to PP&E: Definitions” issued by the Federal Accounting Standards Advisory Board.  Classifications of property, related costs to be reported, and other reporting requirements are discussed in this subpart.  NF 1018 (see 1853.3) provides critical information for NASA financial statements and property management.  Accuracy, completeness, and timeliness of the report are critical to many aspects of NASA’s operations.

 

1845.7101-1  Property classification.

   (a) General.

       (1)  Contractors shall report costs in the classifications on NF 1018, as described in this section.  The cost of heritage assets and obsolete property will be reported on the NF 1018 under the appropriate classification.  Supplemental reporting may also be required. 

       (2)(i) Heritage assets are property, plant and equipment that possess one or more of the following characteristics:

              (A) Historical or natural significance;

              (B) Cultural, educational or  artistic importance; or

              (C) Significant architectural characteristics. 

             (ii) Examples of NASA heritage assets include buildings and structures designated as National Historic Landmarks as well as aircraft, spacecraft and related components on display to enhance public understanding of NASA programs.  Heritage assets which serve both a heritage and government operation function are considered multi-use when the predominant use is in general government operations.  Multi-use heritage assets will not be considered heritage assets for NF 1018 supplemental reporting purposes.

     (3) Obsolete property is property for which there are no current plans for use in its intended purpose (i.e. it no longer provides service to NASA operations).  Examples of obsolete property are items in configurations which are no longer required or used by NASA or items held for engineering evaluation purposes only.  NASA may have approved the retention of these items for programmatic reasons even though they have no current plans for use.

  (b)  Land.  Includes costs of land and improvements to land.   Contractors shall report land

with a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or more.

   (c)  Buildings.  Includes costs of buildings, improvements to buildings, and fixed equipment required for the operation of a building which is permanently attached to and a part of the building and cannot be removed without cutting into the walls, ceilings, or floors.  Contractors shall report buildings with a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or more.  Examples of fixed equipment required for functioning of a building include plumbing, heating and lighting equipment, elevators, central air conditioning systems, and built-in safes and vaults.

  (d)  Other Structures and Facilities.  Includes costs of acquisitions and improvements of real property (i.e. structures and facilities other than buildings); for example, airfield pavements, harbor and port facilities, power production facilities and distribution systems, reclamation and irrigation facilities, flood control and navigation aids, utility systems (heating, sewage, water and electrical) when they serve several buildings or structures, communication systems, traffic aids, roads and bridges, railroads, monuments and memorials, and nonstructural improvements such as sidewalks, parking areas, and fences.  Contractors shall report other structures and facilities with a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or more and a useful life of two years or more.

  (e)  Leasehold improvements.  Includes NASA-funded costs of improvements to leased buildings, structures, and facilities, as well as easements and right-of-way, where NASA is the lessee or the cost is charged to a NASA contract.  Contractors shall report leasehold improvements with a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or more and a useful life of two years or more. 

  (f)  Construction in Progress.  Includes costs of work in process for the construction of Buildings, Other Structures and Facilities, and Leasehold Improvements to which NASA has title, regardless of value.

   (g) Equipment.  Includes costs of commercially available personal property capable of stand-alone use in manufacturing supplies, performing services, or any general or administrative purpose (for example, machine tools, furniture, vehicles, computers, software, test equipment, including their accessory or auxiliary items).  Software integrated into and necessary to operate another item of Government property is considered to be an auxiliary item (see FAR 45.501) and should be considered part of the item of which it is an integral part.  Other software to which NASA has title shall be classified as an individual item of equipment for reporting purposes if it has a useful life of 2 years or more and acquisition cost of  $1,000,000 or more (also see 1845.7101-3(g)).  Enhancement costs for existing software should be added to the software acquisition cost if the enhancement results in significant additional capability beyond that for which the software was originally developed (i.e. a capability that was not included in the original software specifications, the total cost of the enhancement is $1,000,000 or more, or the expected useful life of the enhanced software is 2 years or more).  Software licenses are excluded.  Contractors shall separately report:

       (1) the amount  for all items with a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or more and a useful life of two years or more; and

       (2) All other items.

  (h) Special Tooling.  Includes costs of equipment and manufacturing aids (and their components and replacements)  of such a specialized nature that, without substantial modification or alteration, their use is limited to development or production of particular supplies or parts, or performance of particular services (see FAR 45.101). Examples include jigs, dies, fixtures, molds, patterns, taps and gauges. Contractors shall separately report:

       (1) the amount for all items with a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or  more and a useful life of two years or more; and

       (2) All other items.

   (i) Special Test Equipment.  Includes costs of equipment used to accomplish special purpose testing in performing a contract, and items or assemblies of equipment (see FAR 45.101).  Contractors shall separately report:

     (1) the amount for all items with a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or more and a useful life of two years or more; and

       (2)  All other items.

 (j)  Material.  Includes costs of NASA-owned property held in inventory regardless of whether or not it is unique to NASA programs that may become a part of an end item or be expended in performing a contract.  Examples include raw and processed material, spares, parts, assemblies, small tools and supplies.  Material that is part of work-in-process is not included.  Contractors shall report the amount for all Materials in inventory, regardless of unit acquisition cost.

   (k) Agency-Peculiar Property.  Includes costs of completed items, unique to NASA aeronautical and space programs, which are capable of stand-alone operation.  Examples include research aircraft, reusable space vehicles, ground support equipment, prototypes, and mock-ups.  The amount of property, title to which vests in NASA as a result of progress payments to fixed price subcontractors, shall be included to reflect the pro rata cost of undelivered agency-peculiar property.  Completed end items not related to the International Space Station or the Space Shuttle program which otherwise meet the definition of Agency-Peculiar Property,  and are destined for permanent operation in space, such as satellites and space probes, shall not be reported.  Contractors shall separately report:

       (1) the amount for all items with a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or more and a useful life of two years or more; and

       (2)  All other items.

   (l) Contract Work-in-Process.  Work-in-process (WIP) consists of property items under construction (i.e. not complete).  It includes costs of all work-in-process regardless of value, and excludes costs of completed items reported in other categories. While the costs of WIP for International Space Station and Space Shuttle components should be included as WIP, satellites and space probes and their components should be excluded from WIP as those items will be accounted for by NASA.

 

1845.7101-2  Transfers of property.

  A transfer is a change in accountability between and among prime contracts, NASA Centers, and other Government agencies (e.g., between contracts of the same NASA Center, contracts of different NASA Centers, a contract of one NASA Center to another, a NASA Center to a contract of another NASA Center, and a contract to another Government agency or its contract).  To enable NASA to properly control and account for all transfers, they shall be adequately documented.  Adequate documentation includes the appropriate dollar amount of the asset(s) transferred (as prescribed in 1845.7101-3) and the formal, signed NASA or contractor authorization approving the transfer.  In addition, procurement, property, and financial organizations at NASA Centers must affect all transfers of accountability, although physical shipment and receipt of property may be made directly by contractors. The procedures described in this section shall be followed to provide an administrative and audit trail, even if property is physically shipped directly from one contractor to another.  Property shipped between September 1 and September 30, inclusively, shall be accounted for and reported by the shipping contractor, regardless of the method of shipment, unless written evidence of receipt at destination has been received.  Repairables provided under fixed price repair contracts that include the clause at 1852.245-72, Liability for Government Property Furnished for Repair or Other Services, remain accountable to the cognizant NASA Center and are not reportable on NF 1018; repairables provided under a cost-reimbursement contract, however, are accountable to the contractor and reportable on NF 1018.  All materials provided to conduct repairs are reportable, regardless of contract type.

(a)  Approval and Notification.  The contractor must obtain approval of the contracting officer

or designee for transfers of property off the prime contract before shipment. Each shipping document must be signed by the contracting officer or designee demonstrating such approval.  Each shipping document must contain contract numbers, shipping references, property classifications in which the items are recorded (including Federal Supply Classification group (FSC) codes for equipment), unit acquisition costs (as defined in 1845.7101-3, Unit Acquisition Cost), original Government acquisition dates for items with a unit acquisition cost of $100,000 or more and a useful life of two years or more, and any other appropriate identifying or descriptive data.  Where the DD Form 250, Material Inspection and Receiving Report, is used, the FSC code will be part of the national stock number (NSN) entered in Block 16 or, if the NSN is not provided, the FSC alone shall be shown in Block 16.  The original Government acquisition date shall be shown in Block 23, by item.  Other formats, such as the DD Form 1149, Requisition and Invoice/Shipping Document, should be clearly annotated with the required information.  Unit acquisition costs shall be obtained from records maintained pursuant to FAR Part 45 and this Part 1845, or, for uncompleted items where property records have not yet been established, from such other record systems as are appropriate such as manufacturing or engineering records used for work control and billing purposes.  Shipping contractors shall furnish a copy of the formally approved shipping document to the cognizant property administrator.  Shipping and receiving contractors shall promptly submit copies of shipping and receiving documents to the Center Deputy Chief Financial Officer, Finance, responsible for their respective contracts when accountability for NASA property is transferred to, or received from, other contracts, contractors, NASA Centers, or Government agencies.

  (b)  Reclassification.  If property is transferred to another contract or contractor, the receiving

contractor shall record the property in the same property classification and amount appearing on the shipping document.  For example, when a contractor receives an item from another contractor that is identified on the shipping document as equipment, but that the recipient intends to incorporate into special test equipment, the recipient shall first record the item in the equipment account and subsequently reclassify it as special test equipment. Reclassification of equipment, special tooling, special test equipment, or agency-peculiar property requires prior approval of the contracting officer or a designee.

   (c) Incomplete documentation. If contractors receive transfer documents having insufficient detail to properly record the transfer (e.g., omission of property classification, FSC, unit acquisition cost, Government acquisition date, required signatures, etc.) they shall request the omitted data directly from the shipping contractor or through the property administrator. The contracting officer shall assist the Government Property Administrator and the receiving contractor to obtain all required information for the receiving contractor to establish adequate

property records.

 

1845.7101-3  Unit acquisition cost.

  (a)  The unit acquisition cost shall include all costs incurred to bring the property to a form and location suitable for its intended use. The following is representative of the types of costs that shall be included, when applicable:

(1)  Amounts paid to vendors or other contractors.

(2)  Transportation charges to the point of initial use.

(3)  Handling and storage charges.

(4)  Labor and other direct or indirect production costs (for assets produced or constructed).

(5)  Engineering, architectural, and other outside services for designs, plans, specifications, and surveys.

(6)  Acquisition and preparation costs of buildings and other facilities.

(7)  An appropriate share of the cost of the equipment and facilities used in construction work.

(8)  Fixed equipment and related installation costs required for activities in a building or facility.

(9)  Direct costs of inspection, supervision, and administration of construction contracts and construction work.

(10) Legal and recording fees and damage claims.

(11) Fair values of facilities and equipment donated to the Government.

  (b)  Acquisition cost shall include, where appropriate, for contractor acquired property, related fees, or a pro rata portion of fees, paid by NASA to the contractor.  Situations where inclusion of fees in the acquisition cost would be appropriate are those in which the contractor designs, develops, fabricates or purchases property for NASA and part of the fees paid to the contractor by NASA are related to that effort.

   (c) Acquisition cost shall be developed using actual costs to the greatest extent possible, especially costs directly related to fabrication such as labor and materials.  Where estimates are used, there must be a documented methodology based on a historical basis.  All acquisition costs shall be properly documented, supported and retained.  Supporting documentation shall be made available upon request.

  (d)  The use of weighted average methodologies is acceptable for valuation of Material.

  (e)  Contractors shall report unit acquisition costs using records that are part of the prescribed

property or financial control system as provided in this section.  Fabrication costs shall be based

on approved systems or procedures and include all direct and indirect costs of fabrication.

  (f)  Only modifications that improve an item’s capacity or extend its useful life two years or more and that cost $100,000 or more shall be reported on the NF 1018 on the $100,000 & Over line.  The costs of any other modifications, excluding routine maintenance, will be reported on the Under $100,000 line.  If an item’s original unit acquisition cost is less than $100,000, but a single subsequent modification costs $100,000 or more, that modification only will be reported as an item $100,000 or more on subsequent NF 1018s.  The original acquisition cost of the item will continue to be included in the under $100,000 total.  The quantity for the modified item will remain “1” and be reported with the original acquisition cost of the item.  If an item’s acquisition cost is reduced by removal of components so that its remaining acquisition cost is under $100,000, it shall be reported as under $100,000.

   (g) Software acquisition costs include software costs incurred up through acceptance testing and material internal costs incurred to implement the software and otherwise make the software ready for use.  Costs incurred after acceptance testing are excluded.  License, maintenance, training, and data conversion costs are also excluded.  If the software is purchased as part of a package, the costs will need to be segregated in such manner as to ensure that the excluded costs (maintenance, training, etc.) are not reported as part of the software’s acquisition cost.  Enhancement costs for existing software should be added to the acquisition cost if the enhancement results in significant additional capability beyond that for which the software was originally developed (i.e. a capability that was not included in the original software specifications), the total cost of the enhancement is $1,000,000 or more, and the expected useful life of the enhanced software is 2 years or more.  Include the same types of cost as indicated above under new software.  Costs incurred solely to repair a design flaw or perform minor upgrades should not be included.

  (h) The computation of work in process (WIP) shall include all direct and indirect costs of fabrication, including associated systems, subsystems, and spare parts and components furnished or acquired and charged to work in process pending incorporation into a finished item. These types of items make up what is sometimes called production inventory and include programmed extra units to cover replacement during the fabrication process (production spares).  Also included are deliverable items on which the contractor or a subcontractor has begun work, and materials issued from inventory. The computation of WIP shall incorporate the other requirements for unit acquisition cost as outlined in paragraphs (a) through (e) of this section.  In addition, acquisition cost of property furnished by the Government, which has been incorporated in the property item under construction or in process of fabrication, should be included.  Do not include costs for operation or repairing existing completed property items.  Once the property is complete, include all the costs outlined above in its acquisition value in the property record.  The WIP values are inception to date until such time as the WIP is completed.  It does not include future costs.

 

1845.7101-4  Types of deletions from contractor property records.

  Contractors shall report the types of deletions from contract property records as described in this section.

  (a)  Lost, Damaged or Destroyed. Deletion amounts that result from relief from responsibility under FAR 45.503 granted during the reporting period.

  (b) Transferred in Place.  Deletion amounts that result from transfer of property to a follow-on prime contract or other prime contract with the same contractor.

  (c)  Transferred to NASA Center Accountability.  Deletion amounts that result from transfer of accountability to the NASA Center responsible for the contract, whether or not items are physically moved.

  (d)  Transferred to Another NASA Center.  Deletion amounts that result from transfer of accountability to a NASA Center other than the one responsible for the contract, whether or not items are physically moved.

  (e)  Transferred to Another Government Agency.  Deletion amounts that result from transfer of property to another Government agency.

  (f)  Purchased at Cost/Returned for Credit.  Deletion amounts that result from contractor purchase or retention of contractor acquired property as provided in FAR 45.605-1, or from contractor returns to suppliers under FAR 45.605-2.

  (g)  Disposed of Through Plant Clearance Process.  Deletions other than transfers within the Federal Government, e.g., donations to eligible recipients, sold at less than cost, or abandoned/directed destruction, or trade-ins.

  (h) Other.  Types of deletion other than those reported in paragraph (a) through (g) of this section such as those resulting from reclassifications (e.g. from equipment to agency-peculiar property).

 

1845.7101-5  Contractor’s privileged financial and business information.

  If a transfer of property between contractors involves disclosing costs of a proprietary nature, the contractor shall furnish unit acquisition costs only on  copies of  shipping documents sent to the shipping and receiving NASA Centers.

PART 1852

SOLICITATION PROVISIONS AND CONTRACT CLAUSES

 

1852.000 Scope of part.

  This part, in conjunction with FAR Part 52, (a) sets forth the provisions and clauses prescribed in the NFS, (b) gives instructions for their use, and (c) presents a matrix listing the provisions and clauses applicable to each principal contract type and/or purpose (e.g., fixed-price supply, cost-reimbursement research and development).

 

Subpart 1852.1--Instructions for Using Provisions and Clauses

 

1852.101 Using Part 52.

  (b)(2)(i)(B) NASA contracting offices prescribing or developing clauses shall ensure that the requirements of Subpart 1801.3 are met.

  (e)(1) The NFS matrix in Subpart 1852.3 is formatted similarly to that in the FAR.  The first page of the NFS matrix contains a key to column headings, a dollar threshold chart, and requirement symbols.  To fully determine the applicability of a provision or clause in the "required-when-applicable" and "optional" categories, Contracting Officers shall refer to the NFS text (cited in the matrix) that prescribes its use.

       (4) The NFS matrix may be reproduced by field installations for the purpose of supplementing it with installation-developed provisions and clauses.

 

1852.103 Identification of provisions and clauses.

  (b) Provisions and clauses prescribed by a field installation to satisfy its needs shall be identified as stated in paragraphs (b)(i) and (ii) of this section.  Articles, formats, and similar language shall be treated as provisions and clauses for purposes of this section 1852.103.

     (i) A provision or clause shall be numbered using a prefix, a base, and a suffix.  The prefix shall be an alphabetical abbreviation of the installation name (e.g., ARC, DFRC, GRC, GSFC, JSC, KSC, LARC, MSFC, SSC, or SSPO).  The base shall be a numeric value beginning with "52.2," with the next two digits corresponding to the number of the FAR or NFS subject part to which the provision or clause relates.  The suffix shall be a hyphen and sequential number assigned within each part.  NASA installations shall use suffix numbers from -90 to -199.  For example, the first Johnson Space Center (JSC) provision or clause relating to Part 36 of the FAR or NFS shall be JSC 52.236-90, the second JSC 52.236-91, and so forth.  Provisions and clauses shall be dated in accordance with FAR 52.101(f).

      (ii) Contracting officers shall identify provisions and clauses as in the following examples:

        (A) I.2 BID ENVELOPES (GSFC 52.214-90) (AUGUST 1987) This example is applicable when identifying the title of provisions and clauses in solicitations and contracts using the uniform contract format (UCF).  The first number ("I.2") designates the UCF section and the sequential clause within that section.  "GSFC 52.214-90" specifies the clause number.

           (B) GSFC 52.214-90--Bid Envelopes (AUGUST 1987) This example is applicable in all instances in which the provision or clause citation is not associated with the UCF number.

  (c) Contracting officers shall not number provisions and clauses developed for individual acquisitions only.  For example, "F.3 Delivery Procedures for Special Hardware" cites the third clause in Section F of a contract using the UCF, but has no clause number or date identified with it, indicating that the clause was developed for the particular contract it appears in.

 

1852.103-70 Identification of modified provisions and clauses.

  When a FAR clause or provision is included in a solicitation or contract and the NFS prescribes a modification, the title line shall identify the modification as shown below. This format shall be used both for incorporation by reference and when using full text.

 

    "52.232-28 Electronic Funds Transfer Payment Methods (APR 1989)--as modified by NASA FAR Supplement 1832.908(a)"

 

1852.104 Procedures for modifying and completing provisions and clauses.

  NFS provisions and clauses shall not be modified unless authorized by the NFS.  When authorized, contracting officers must comply with the procedures in FAR 52.104.

 

Subpart 1852.2--Text of Provisions and Clauses

 

1852.203-70  Display of Inspector General Hotline Posters.

  As prescribed in 1803.7001, insert the following clause:

DISPLAY OF INSPECTOR GENERAL HOTLINE POSTERS

(JUNE 2001)

  (a)  The Contractor shall display prominently in common work areas within business segments performing work under this contract, Inspector General Hotline Posters available under paragraph (b) of this clause.

   (b) Inspector General Hotline Posters may be obtained from NASA Office of Inspector General, Code W, Washington, DC, 20546-0001, (202) 358-1220.

(End of clause)

 

1852.204-75 Security Classification Requirements.

  As prescribed in 1804.404-70, insert the following clause:

                                SECURITY CLASSIFICATION REQUIREMENTS

                                                            (SEPTEMBER 1989)

  Performance under this contract will involve access to and/or generation of classified information, work in a security area, or both, up to the level of                             [insert the applicable security clearance level].  See Federal Acquisition Regulation clause 52.204-2 in this contract and DD Form 254, Contract Security Classification Specification, Attachment       [Insert the attachment number of the DD Form 254].

                                                                 (End of clause)

 

1852.204-76 Security Requirements for Unclassified Information Technology Resources.

   As prescribed in 1804.470-4(a), insert the following clause:

       (3)  The Contractor shall ensure coordination of its incident response team with the NASA Incident Response Center (NASIRC) and the NASA Security Operations Center, ensuring that incidents are reported consistent with NIST SP 800-61, Computer Security Incident Reporting Guide, and the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team’s (US-CERT) Concept of Operations for reporting security incidents.  Specifically, any confirmed incident of a system containing NASA data or controlling NASA assets shall be reported to NASIRC within one hour that results in unauthorized access, loss or modification of NASA data, or denial of service affecting the availability of NASA data.

       (4) The Contractor shall ensure that its employees, in performance of the contract, receive annual IT security training in NASA IT Security policies, procedures, computer ethics, and best practices in accordance with NPR 2810 requirements.  The Contractor may use web-based training available from NASA to meet this requirement.

       (5) The Contractor shall provide NASA, including the NASA Office of Inspector General, access to the Contractor’s and subcontractors’ facilities, installations, operations, documentation, databases, and personnel used in performance of the contract. Access shall be provided to the extent required to carry out IT security inspection, investigation, and/or audits to safeguard against threats and hazards to the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of NASA information or to the function of computer systems operated on behalf of NASA, and to preserve evidence of computer crime.  To facilitate mandatory reviews, the Contractor shall ensure appropriate compartmentalization of NASA information, stored and/or processed, either by information systems in direct support of the contract or that are incidental to the contract.

       (6)  The Contractor shall ensure that system administrators who perform tasks that have a material impact on IT security and operations demonstrate knowledge appropriate to those tasks. Knowledge is demonstrated through the NASA System Administrator Security Certification Program.  A system administrator is one who provides IT services (including network services, file storage, and/or web services) to someone other than themselves and takes or assumes the responsibility for the security and administrative controls of that service.  Within 30 days after contract award, the Contractor shall provide to the Contracting Officer a list of all system administrator positions and personnel filling those positions, along with a schedule that ensures certification of all personnel within 90 days after contract award.  Additionally, the Contractor should report all personnel changes which impact system administrator positions within 5 days of the personnel change and ensure these individuals obtain System Administrator certification within 90 days after the change.

            (iii)  Utilize the NASA Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for all encrypted communication or non-repudiation requirements within NASA when secure email capability is required.

  (c) Physical and Logical Access Requirements.

       (1) Contractor personnel requiring access to IT systems operated by the Contractor for NASA or interconnected to a NASA network shall be screened at an appropriate level in accordance with NPR 2810 and Chapter 4, NPR 1600.1, NASA Security Program Procedural Requirements.  NASA shall provide screening, appropriate to the highest risk level, of the IT systems and information accessed, using, as a minimum, National Agency Check with Inquiries (NACI). The Contractor shall submit the required forms to the NASA Center Chief of Security (CCS) within fourteen (14) days after contract award or assignment of an individual to a position requiring screening.  The forms may be obtained from the CCS.  At the option of NASA, interim access may be granted pending completion of the required investigation and final access determination.  For Contractors who will reside on a NASA Center or installation, the security screening required for all required access (e.g., installation, facility, IT, information, etc.) is consolidated to ensure only one investigation is conducted based on the highest risk level.  Contractors not residing on a NASA installation will be screened based on their IT access risk level determination only.  See NPR 1600.1, Chapter 4.

       (2) Guidance for selecting the appropriate level of screening is based on the risk of adverse impact to NASA missions.  NASA defines three levels of risk for which screening is required (IT-1 has the highest level of risk).

            (i)  IT-1 -- Individuals having privileged access or limited privileged access to systems whose misuse can cause very serious adverse impact to NASA missions.  These systems include, for example, those that can transmit commands directly modifying the behavior of spacecraft, satellites or aircraft.

            (ii) IT-2 -- Individuals having privileged access or limited privileged access to systems whose misuse can cause serious adverse impact to NASA missions.  These systems include, for example, those that can transmit commands directly modifying the behavior of payloads on spacecraft, satellites or aircraft; and those that contain the primary copy of “level 1” information whose cost to replace exceeds one million dollars.

            (iii) IT-3 -- Individuals having privileged access or limited privileged access to systems whose misuse can cause significant adverse impact to NASA missions.  These systems include, for example, those that interconnect with a NASA network in a way that exceeds access by the general public, such as bypassing firewalls; and systems operated by the Contractor for NASA whose function or information has substantial cost to replace, even if these systems are not interconnected with a NASA network.

       (3)  Screening for individuals shall employ forms appropriate for the level of risk as established in Chapter 4, NPR 1600.1.

       (4)  The Contractor may conduct its own screening of individuals requiring privileged access or limited privileged access provided the Contractor can demonstrate to the Contracting Officer that the procedures used by the Contractor are equivalent to NASA's personnel screening procedures for the risk level assigned for the IT position.

       (5) Subject to approval of the Contracting Officer, the Contractor may forgo screening of Contractor personnel for those individuals who have proof of a --

            (i) Current or recent national security clearances (within last three years);

            (ii) Screening conducted by NASA within the last three years that meets or exceeds the screening requirements of the IT position; or

            (iii) Screening conducted by the Contractor, within the last three years, that is equivalent to the NASA personnel screening procedures as approved by the Contracting Officer and concurred on by the CCS.

  (d)  The Contracting Officer may waive the requirements of paragraphs (b) and (c)(1) through (c)(3) upon request of the Contractor.  The Contractor shall provide all relevant information requested by the Contracting Officer to support the waiver request.

  (e)  The Contractor shall contact the Contracting Officer for any documents, information, or forms necessary to comply with the requirements of this clause.

  (f)  At the completion of the contract, the contractor shall return all NASA information and IT resources provided to the contractor during the performance of the contract and certify that all NASA information has been purged from contractor-owned systems used in the performance of the contract.

  (g)  The Contractor shall insert this clause, including this paragraph (g), in all subcontracts

       (1) Have physical or electronic access to NASA's computer systems, networks, or IT infrastructure; or

       (2) Use information systems to generate, store, process, or exchange data with NASA or on behalf of NASA, regardless of whether the data resides on a NASA or a contractor’s information system.
