The liability of the Contractor with respect to items for which payments have been made will, after inspection by the NAFI or after the expiration of a reasonable time following delivery to the NAFI within which inspection may be made, whichever occurs first, be limited to exceptions taken at the time of inspection, and latent defects, fraud, or such gross mistakes as amount to fraud.23. VARIATION IN QUANTITYNo variation in quantity of any item called for by this contract will be accepted unless authorized by the Contracting Officer.24. PARTIAL DELIVERIESPartial deliveries are not permitted unless authorized by the terms of the contract or approved by the Contracting Officer.25. PAYMENTSPartial payments will be made when deliveries are authorized or as approved by the Contracting Officer. Payments and penalties for late payments are subject to the requirements established by the Prompt Payment Act, as amended, and as implemented for NAFIs. If the NAFI makes payment but such payment fails to include a prompt payment penalty due to the Contractor within 10 days from when the contract payment is made, penalty amounts will not be paid unless the Contractor makes a written request within forty days after the date of payment.26. DISCOUNTS FOR PROMPT PAYMENTa. Discounts for prompt payment will not be considered in the evaluation of offers. However, any offered discount will form a part of the award, and will be taken if payment is made within the discount period indicated in the offer by the offeror. As an alternative to offering a prompt payment discount in conjunction with the offer, offerors awarded contracts may include prompt payment discounts on individual invoices.b. In connection with any discount offered for prompt payment, time shall be computed from the date of the invoice. If the Contractor has not placed a date on the invoice, the due date shall be calculated from the date the designated billing office receives a proper invoice, provided the agency annotates such invoice with the date of receipt at the time of receipt. For the purpose of computing the discount earned, payment shall be considered to have been made on the date that appears on the payment check or, for an electronic funds transfer, the specified payment date. When the discount date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday when Federal Government offices are closed and Government business is not expected to be conducted, payment may be made on the following business day.27. NOTIFICATION OF DEBARMENT/SUSPENSION STATUSThe Contractor shall provide immediate notice to the Contracting Officer in the event of being suspended, debarred or declared ineligible by any other Federal Department or agency, or upon receipt of a notice of proposed debarment from another DoD Agency, during the performance of this contract.28. NON WAIVER OF DEFAULTS - Any failure by the NAFI at any time to enforce or require strict performance of any terms or conditions shall not constitute waiver thereof, and shall not affect or impair such terms or conditions in any way or the NAFI's right at any time to avail itself of such remedies as it may have for any breach or breaches of such terms or conditions.29.

The Contracting Officer and or their duly appointed representative will approve, in advance, any changes in the itinerary.
