Cross Waivers of Liability

 

PURPOSE:  The purpose of this PN is to consolidate NASA’s three existing cross-waiver of liability clauses into two clauses and to align the two clauses with Agency mission requirements, consistent with the cross-waiver of liability regulatory authority at 14 CFR 1266. 

 

BACKGROUND:  The regulatory authority at 14 CFR 1266 was promulgated on February 26, 2008 (73 FR 10143-50) by the Office of General Counsel.  The February 2008 rule established NASA’s cross-waiver of liability authority in two categories of NASA agreements:  (1) agreements for ISS activities pursuant to the “Agreement Among the Government of Canada, Governments of Member States of the European Space Agency, the Government of Japan, the Government of the Russian Federation, and the Government of the United States of America concerning Cooperation on the Civil International Space Station” (commonly referred to as the ISS Intergovernmental Agreement, or IGA); and (2) launch agreements involving science or space exploration activities unrelated to the ISS. 

 

Following promulgation of the two-category regulatory authority, the NASA FAR Supplement three-category contract clause arrangement no longer aligned.  The procurement rule of May 7, 2011 proposed to delete one clause and realign the remaining two to cover the two categories of contracts on which cross-waivers of liability are authorized and required:  contracts supporting ISS and contracts supporting launches into space that are not related to the ISS.   Clause 1852.228-72, Cross-Waiver of Liability for Space Shuttle Services is deleted.  Clause 1852.228-76 is amended and retitled Cross-Waiver of Liability for International Space Station Activities, and 1852.228-78 is amended and retitled Cross-Waiver of Liability for Science or Space Exploration Activities Unrelated to the International Space Station.  

 

Wherever the cross-waiver of liability clauses are referenced in the NASA FAR Supplement, conforming changes are being made to clause numbers and titles.

 

ACQUISITIONS AFFECTED BY CHANGES:   This requirement is applicable to all solicitations issued on or after the effective date of this PN.  

 

ACTIONS REQUIRED BY CONTRACTING OFFICERS:  Contracting officers shall use the revised clause for all solicitations issued and contracts awarded on or after the effective date of this PN, in accordance with the prescription at 1828.371.  CMM and contract templates have been updated to include the revised clause. 

 

CLAUSE CHANGES:  1852.228-72, 1852.228-76, and 1852.228-78.

 

PARTS AFFECTED:  Parts 1812, 1828, and 1852.

 

EFFECTIVE DATE:  This PN is effective on October 29, 2012, and will automatically be cancelled when incorporated into the NASA FAR Supplement (NFS). 

 

CANCELLATION:  PIC 09-11 is hereby cancelled.

 

REPLACEMENT PAGES:  Replacement pages will no longer be distributed.  NFS changes will be posted to the official on-line version at:

 

TYPE OF RULE AND PUBLICATION DATE:  These changes were published as a final rule in the Federal Register (FR Vol. 77, No. 188, 59339 - 59343) September 27, 2012.

   (a) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.228-70, Aircraft Ground and Flight Risk, in all negotiated fixed-price contracts for the development, production, modification, maintenance, or overhaul of aircraft, or otherwise involving the furnishing of aircraft to the contractor, except as provided in paragraph (b) of this section, unless the aircraft are covered by a separate bailment.  See the clause preface for directions for modifying the clause to accommodate various circumstances.

   (b)        The Government need not assume the risk of aircraft damage, loss, or destruction as provided by the clause at 1852.228-70 if the best estimate of premium costs that  would be included in the contract price for insurance coverage for such damage, loss, or destruction at any plant or facility is less than $500.  If it is determined not to assume this risk, the clause at 1852.228-70 shall not be made a part of the contract, and the cost of necessary insurance to be obtained by the contractor to cover this risk shall be considered in establishing the contract price. In such cases, however, if performance of the contract is expected to involve the flight of Government-furnished aircraft, the substance of the clause at 1852.228-71, Aircraft Flight Risks, suitably adapted for use in a fixed-price contract, shall be used.

   (c) When the clause at 1852.228-70 is used, the term "Contractor's premises" shall be expressly defined in the contract Schedule and shall be limited to places where aircraft may be located during the performance of the contract.  Contractor's premises may include, but are not limited to, those owned or leased by the contractor or those for which the contractor has a permit, license, or other right of use either exclusively or jointly with others, including Government airfields.

 

1828.371 Clauses incorporating cross-waivers of liability for International Space Station activities and Science or Space Exploration activities unrelated to the International Space Station.

    (a)  In contracts covering International Space Station activities, or Science or Space Exploration activities unrelated to the International Space Station that involve a launch, NASA shall require the contractor to agree to waive all claims against any entity or person defined in the clause based on damage arising out of Protected Space Operations.  This cross-waiver shall apply only if the person, entity, or property causing the damage is involved in Protected Space Operations and the person, entity, or property damaged is damaged by virtue of its involvement in Protected Space Operations.  The cross-waivers will require the contractor to extend the cross-waiver provisions to their subcontractors at any tier and related entities ensuring those subcontractors and related entities also waive all claims against any entity or person defined in the clause for damages arising out of Protected Space Operations.  The purpose of the clauses prescribed in this section is to extend the cross-waivers under other agreements to NASA contractors that perform work in support of NASA’s obligations under these agreements.

   (b)  The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.228-78, Cross-Waiver of Liability for Science or Space Exploration Activities unrelated to the International Space Station, in solicitations and contracts above the simplified acquisition threshold for the acquisition of launches for science or space exploration activities unrelated to the International Space Station or for acquisitions for science or space exploration activities that are not related to the International Space Station but involve a launch.  If a science or space exploration activity is in support of the International Space Station, the contracting officer shall insert the clause prescribed by paragraph (c) of this section and designate its application to that particular launch.

   (c)  The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 1852.228-76, Cross-Waiver of Liability for International Space Station Activities, in solicitations and contracts above the simplified acquisition threshold when the work to be performed involves Protected Space Operations, as that term is defined in the clause, relating to the International Space Station.

  (d)  At the contracting officer's discretion, the clauses prescribed by paragraphs (b) and (c) of this section may be used in solicitations, contracts, new work modifications, or extensions to existing contracts under the simplified acquisition threshold involving science or space exploration activities unrelated to the International Space Station, or International Space Station activities, respectively, in appropriate circumstances.  Examples of such circumstances are when the value of contractor property on a Government installation used in performance of the contract is significant, or when it is likely that the contractor or subcontractor will have its valuable property exposed to risk or damage caused by other participants in the science or space exploration activities unrelated to the International Space Station, or International Space Station activities.

 

1828.372  Clause for minimum insurance coverage.

   In accordance with FAR 28.306(b) and 28.307, the contracting officer may insert a clause substantially as stated at 1852.228-75, Minimum Insurance Coverage, in fixed-price solicitations and contracts requiring performance on a government installation and in cost-reimbursement contracts.  The contracting officer may modify the clause to require additional coverage, such as vessel liability, and higher limits if appropriate for a particular acquisition.

SUBPART              1852.3             PROVISION AND CLAUSE MATRIX

1852.300                                           Scope of Subpart.

1852.301                                           Solicitation Provisions and Contract Clauses (Matrix).

 

 

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:
SECURITY REQUIREMENTS FOR UNCLASSIFIED INFORMATION
TECHNOLOGY RESOURCES
(JANUARY 2011)
    (a) The contractor shall protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of NASA Electronic Information and IT resources and protect NASA Electronic Information from unauthorized disclosure.
    (b) This clause is applicable to all NASA contractors and sub-contractors that process, manage, access, or store unclassified electronic information, to include Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU) information, for NASA in support of NASA's missions, programs, projects and/or institutional requirements. Applicable requirements, regulations, policies, and guidelines are identified in the Applicable Documents List (ADL) provided as an attachment to the contract. The documents listed in the ADL can be found at: http://www.nasa.gov/offices/ocio/itsecurity/index.html. For policy information considered sensitive, the documents will be identified as such in the ADL and made available through the Contracting Officer.
    (c) Definitions.
               (1) IT resources means any hardware or software or interconnected system or subsystem of equipment, that is used to process, manage, access, or store electronic information.
               (2) NASA Electronic Information is any data (as defined in the Rights in Data clause of this contract) or information (including information incidental to contract administration, such as 
financial, administrative, cost or pricing, or management information) that is processed, managed, accessed or stored on an IT system(s) in the performance of a NASA contract.
               (3) IT Security Management Plan--This plan shall describe the processes and procedures that will be followed to ensure appropriate security of IT resources that are developed, processed, or used under this contract. Unlike the IT security plan, which addresses the IT system, the IT Security Management Plan addresses how the contractor will manage personnel and processes associated with IT Security on the instant contract.
               (4) IT Security Plan--this is a FISMA requirement; see the ADL for applicable requirements. The IT Security Plan is specific to the IT System and not the contract. Within 30 days after award, the contractor shall develop and deliver an IT Security Management Plan to the Contracting Officer; the approval authority will be included in the ADL. All contractor personnel requiring physical or logical access to NASA IT resources must complete NASA's annual IT Security Awareness training. Refer to the IT Training policy located in the IT Security Web site at https://itsecurity.nasa.gov/policies/index.html.
    (d) The contractor shall afford Government 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 a program of IT inspection (to include vulnerability testing), investigation and audit to safeguard against threats and hazards to the integrity, availability, and confidentiality of NASA Electronic Information or to the function of IT systems operated on behalf of NASA, and to preserve evidence of computer crime.
    (e) 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 in accordance with 
retention documentation available in the ADL. The contractor shall provide a listing of all NASA Electronic information and IT resources generated in performance of the contract. At that time, the contractor shall request disposition instructions from the Contracting Officer. The Contracting Officer will provide disposition instructions within 30 calendar days of the contractor's request. Parts of the clause and referenced ADL may be waived by the contracting officer, if the contractor's ongoing IT security program meets or exceeds the requirements of NASA Procedural Requirements (NPR) 2810.1 in effect at time of award. The current version of NPR 2810.1 is referenced in the ADL. The contractor shall submit a written waiver request to the Contracting Officer within 30 days of award. The waiver request will be reviewed by the Center IT Security Manager. If approved, the Contractor Officer will notify the contractor, by contract modification, which parts of the clause or provisions of the ADL are waived.
    (f) The contractor shall insert this clause, including this paragraph in all subcontracts that process, manage, access or store NASA Electronic Information in support of the mission of the Agency.
(End of clause)

Pub 101-9, U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, DC, 20402, published by the Joint Committee on Printing, U.S. Congress.

  (b) The Contractor shall not perform, or procure from any commercial source, any printing in connection with the performance of work under this contract.  The term "printing" includes the processes of composition, platemaking, presswork, duplicating, silk screen processes, binding, microform, and the end items of such processes and equipment.

  (c) The Contractor is authorized to duplicate or copy production units provided the requirement does not exceed 5,000 production units of any one page or 25,000 units in the aggregate of multiple pages.  Such pages may not exceed a maximum image size of 10-3/4 by 14-1/4 inches.  A "production unit" is one sheet, size 8-1/2 x 11 inches (215 x 280 mm), one side only, and one color ink.

  (d) This clause does not preclude writing, editing, preparation of manuscript copy, or preparation of related illustrative material as a part of this contract, or administrative duplicating/copying (for example, necessary forms and instructional materials used by the Contractor to respond to the terms of the contract).

  (e) Costs associated with printing, duplicating, or copying in excess of the limits in paragraph (c) of this clause are unallowable without prior written approval of the Contracting Officer.  If the Contractor has reason to believe that any activity required in fulfillment of the contract will necessitate any printing or substantial duplicating or copying, it immediately shall provide written notice to the Contracting Officer and request approval prior to proceeding with the activity.  Requests will be processed by the Contracting Officer in accordance with the provisions of the Government Printing and Binding Regulations, NFS 1808.802, and NPR 1490.5, NASA Procedural Requirements for Printing, Duplicating, and Copying Management.

  (f) The Contractor shall include in each subcontract which may involve a requirement for any printing, duplicating, and copying in excess of the limits specified in paragraph (c) of this clause, a provision substantially the same as this clause, including this paragraph (f).

  (c) The restrictions upon future contracting are as follows:

      (1) If the Contractor, under the terms of this contract, or through the performance of tasks pursuant to this contract, is required to develop specifications or statements of work that are to be incorporated into a solicitation, the Contractor shall be ineligible to perform the work described in that solicitation as a prime or first-tier subcontractor under an ensuing NASA contract.  This  restriction shall remain in effect for a reasonable time, as agreed to by the Contracting Officer and the Contractor, sufficient to avoid unfair competitive advantage or potential bias (this time shall in no case be less than the duration of the initial production contract).  NASA shall not unilaterally require the Contractor to prepare such specifications or statements of work under this contract.

       (2) To the extent that the work under this contract requires access to proprietary, business confidential, or financial data of other companies, and as long as these data remain proprietary or confidential, the Contractor shall protect these data from unauthorized use and disclosure and agrees not to use them to compete with those other companies.

                                                                 (End of clause)

  (d)  Comprehensive general and motor vehicle liability policies shall contain a provision worded as follows:

 

  "The insurance company waives any right of subrogation against the United States of America which may arise by reason of any payment under the policy."

 

 (e)  When aircraft are used in connection with performing the contract, aircraft public and passenger liability insurance of at least $200,000 per person and $500,000 per occurrence for bodily injury, other than passenger liability, and $200,000 per occurrence for property damage.  Coverage for passenger liability bodily injury shall be at least $200,000 multiplied by the number of seats or passengers, whichever is greater.
