(t) System for Award Management (SAM). (1) Unless exempted by an addendum to this contract, the Contractor is responsible during performance and through final payment of any contract for the accuracy and completeness of the data within the SAM database, and for any liability resulting from the Government's reliance on inaccurate or incomplete data. To remain registered in the SAM database after the initial registration, the Contractor is required to review and update on an annual basis from the date of initial registration or subsequent updates its information in the SAM database to ensure it is current, accurate and complete. Updating information in the SAM does not alter the terms and conditions of this contract and is not a substitute for a properly executed contractual document.(2)(i) If a Contractor has legally changed its business name, “doing business as” name, or division name (whichever is shown on the contract), or has transferred the assets used in performing the contract, but has not completed the necessary requirements regarding novation and change-of-name agreements in FAR subpart 42.12, the Contractor shall provide the responsible Contracting Officer a minimum of one business day's written notification of its intention to (A) change the name in the SAM database; (B) comply with the requirements of subpart 42.12; and (C) agree in writing to the timeline and procedures specified by the responsible Contracting Officer. The Contractor must provide with the notification sufficient documentation to support the legally changed name. (ii) If the Contractor fails to comply with the requirements of paragraph (t)(2)(i) of this clause, or fails to perform the agreement at paragraph (t)(2)(i)(C) of this clause, and, in the absence of a properly executed novation or change-of-name agreement, the SAM information that shows the Contractor to be other than the Contractor indicated in the contract will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the “Suspension of Payment” paragraph of the electronic funds transfer (EFT) clause of this contract. (3) The Contractor shall not change the name or address for EFT payments or manual payments, as appropriate, in the SAM record to reflect an assignee for the purpose of assignment of claims (see Subpart 32.8, Assignment of Claims). Assignees shall be separately registered in the SAM database. Information provided to the Contractor's SAM record that indicates payments, including those made by EFT, to an ultimate recipient other than that Contractor will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the “Suspension of payment” paragraph of the EFT clause of this contract. (4) Offerors and Contractors may obtain information on registration and annual confirmation requirements via SAM accessed through https://www.acquisition.gov.(u) Unauthorized Obligations. (1) Except as stated in paragraph (u)(2) of this clause, when any supply or service acquired under this contract is subject to any End User License Agreement (EULA), Terms of Service (TOS), or similar legal instrument or agreement, that includes any clause requiring the Government to indemnify the Contractor or any person or entity for damages, costs, fees, or any other loss or liability that would create an Anti-Deficiency Act violation (31 U.S.C. 1341), the following shall govern: (i) Any such clause is unenforceable against the Government. (ii) Neither the Government nor any Government authorized end user shall be deemed to have agreed to such clause by virtue of it appearing in the EULA, TOS, or similar legal instrument or agreement. If the EULA, TOS, or similar legal instrument or agreement is invoked through an ``I agree'' click box or other comparable mechanism (e.g., ``click-wrap'' or ``browse-wrap'' agreements), execution does not bind the Government or any Government authorized end user to such clause. (iii) Any such clause is deemed to be stricken from the EULA, TOS, or similar legal instrument or agreement. (2) Paragraph (u) (1) of this clause does not apply to indemnification by the Government that is expressly authorized by statute and specifically authorized under applicable agency regulations and procedures.

Although culturally competent messaging is increasingly recognized as having vital importance in the health care sector, one factor that is neglected is the role of gender-specific messaging and health literacy. The goal of this proposed research is to examine gender-related health literacy and the potential lack of appropriate gender-specific messaging, particularly as a potential contributor to health disparities in older female populations. It is hoped that, as a result of this research, a best practices guide and a regulatory tool will be developed to assist regulators and policy makers in evaluating advertising and promotional labeling from a gender-sensitive and age-sensitive health literacy perspective. This addresses the Office of Women's Health Research Priority Area 6: Develop, evaluate, and use tools and methods to foster the creation and easy availability of clear and useful information about FDA-regulated products used by women to help women and their health care professionals make informed health-related decisions.A. BackgroundDirect-to-consumer (DTC) promotion for health products and services has increased tremendously during the past decade. Recent changes in the DTC environment, particularly internet and social media, have impacted clinical encounters, risk perception, and communication. One objective for this study is to determine the rate of patient medication inquiries to healthcare providers and their influence on clinical encounters in primary care for women aged 65 and older. This includes identifying and documenting reports for the products that have disparate rates of use among elderly women; identifying gaps in the literature for health literacy pertaining to gender and age; and examining current advertising and promotional labeling for messaging that adequately targets elderly women. It is hoped that this would inform and support the implementation of best practices for gender- and age-based health literacy and increase targeted promotional messaging, ultimately increasing comprehension and awareness among elderly women.B. ScopeThe ultimate goal of this research is to compile and evaluate the body of literature regarding disparities in the utilization of health services and products by women 65 years of age and older and to examine the extent to which promotion impacts these disparities. Working with elderly women as stakeholders we intend to establish themes that can be used across health promotion campaigns to improve health and healthcare uptake. We will achieve this goal through various means as follows:3• Compile and evaluate scientific literature documenting any gender-specific disparities seen in the utilization, awareness, or comprehension of health services and/or products.• Identify themes and characteristics of successful health messaging to older women.• Delineate potential gaps in the literature, with respect to health services or products for the older female demographic group, and develop recommendations to help ameliorate these gaps.• Examine the extent to which current advertising and promotional labeling is targeted towards elderly women and other underserved populations.• Partner with federal and academic institutions to create public health outreach campaigns designed to increase awareness of vital health services in this demographic. A deliverable of this phase of the project will be a best practices guide and a regulatory tool to be used in determining whether promotional messaging conforms to gender-sensitive formats in elderly populations.Part II: Work RequirementsA. Technical Requirements for Perspective Vendor:• Vendor shall be required to have access to librarians at a Health Sciences Library thatare expert searchers who can support faculty investigators and students in conductingcomprehensive literature searches. They shall use the correct search strategies toensure that all relevant studies are identified in relevant databases, deliver search results into a citation management tool and set up search alerts to identify recently published literature.• Vendor shall collaborate with health professional and faith-based organizations todraw from a diverse group of participants who will be used to conduct two focusgroups and provide insight on the perceptions and understanding around thepromotional and advertising material.• Vendor shall develop culturally competent and outreach strategies and educational materials at the appropriate health literacy level in order to bolster awareness and decrease herpes zoster vaccination disparities among older adults.B. US Government shall conduct the following during this study:Shall perform electronic and hand searches on advertising and promotional materials published between January 2010 and December 2016, looking at promotional messaging for gender-sensitive health services and products. Evaluate the materials for cultural competence and health literacy4levels. This review will be done in conjunction with focus group testing (below) in order to gather information on perceptions, barriers, and comprehension of the promotional materials that have been rated for their cultural competence, gender-sensitivity and health literacy..C. Deliverables• A full data report of the literature findings will be provided to (FDA/CBER). This report shall be completed within six-weeks of completing the literature review and analysis.• A comprehensive report of the focus group testing and findings will be provided to(FDA/CBER).

In addition offerors shall demonstrate (i.e., published reports, scientific articles, etc.) the proposed instrument's sequencing chemistry will function and accomplish the required results as indicated in the Statement of Need. The government is not responsible for locating or securing any information, which is not identified in the proposal. Offerors shall identify ENERGY STAR qualified and/or EPEAT-registered product(s) to be supplied under this contract by manufacturer, model name, and model number. Offerors should be prepared to provide evidence of product certification by an EPA-recognized certification body upon request. In addition, offerors shall specify the EPEAT level rating (bronze, silver, or gold) for each product.

Failure to submit and then negotiate an acceptable subcontracting plan within 10 calendar days of the date the Contracting Officer notifies the offeror of issues and concerns with the subcontracting plan will render the offeror ineligible for award. The resulting subcontracting plan will be made a part of the resulting contract and the Contractor shall comply with the reporting requirements of FAR Clause 52.219-9(l). Small business firms are exempt from the subcontracting plan requirement. Service Contract Act ExemptionThis solicitation is being issued under the premise that the Contractor will certify that the post-warranty maintenance/repair services are exempt from the Service Contract Act then Clause 52.222-51 will flow per usual from this solicitation to the resulting order.

(i) An "established catalog price" is a price included in a catalog, price list, schedule, or other form that is regularly maintained by the manufacturer or the offeror, is either published or otherwise available for inspection by customers, and states prices at which sales currently, or were last, made to a significant number of buyers constituting the general public. (ii) An "established market price" is a current price, established in the usual course of trade between buyers and sellers free to bargain, which can be substantiated from sources independent of the manufacturer or offeror; and (3) The compensation (wage and fringe benefits) plan for all service employees performing work under the contract are the same as that used for these employees and equivalent employees servicing the same equipment of commercial customers. (b) Certification by the offeror as to its compliance with respect to the contract also constitutes its certification as to compliance by its subcontractor if it subcontracts out the exempt services. If the offeror certifies to the conditions in paragraph (a) of this provision, and the Contracting Officer determines in accordance with FAR 22.1003-4(c)(3) that the Service Contract Labor Standards statute- (1) Will not apply to this offeror, then the Service Contract Labor Standards clause in this solicitation will not be included in any resultant contract to this offeror; or (2) Will apply to this offeror, then the clause at 52.222-51, Exemption from Application of the Service Contract Labor Standards to Contracts for Maintenance, Calibration, or Repair of Certain Equipment-Requirements, in this solicitation will not be included in any resultant contract awarded to this offeror, and the offeror may be provided an opportunity to submit a new offer on that basis.

FAR Provision 52.204-7 System for Award Management (OCT 2016)FAR Provision 52.204-16 Commercial and Government Entity Code Reporting. (JUL 2016)The provision at FAR 52.212-2 Evaluation-Commercial Items applies to this solicitation.

As part of the technical evaluation, the Government will confirm that EPEAT offered products are registered product(s). The Government will evaluate more favorably offers that propose delivery of products that meet higher levels of qualification under the EPEAT product registration system (i.e., silver or gold). Options- The Government will evaluate offers for award purposes by adding the total price for all options to the total price for the basic requirement. The Government may determine that an offer is unacceptable if the option prices are significantly unbalanced. Evaluation of options shall not obligate the Government to exercise the option(s).

The following format is required as e-mail subject: The RFQ No: 2017-Q-66366.KT.doc or .xls (Where "2017-Q-66366 is the respective RFQ No. and "KT" are the first two letters of the respective Contractor's name; and ".doc" and ".xls" are the format extensions.)

Proposal shall be submitted in two severable parts as follows: i. Part I - The Technical Proposal: Technical Approach: Offerors shall include a discussion of their technical approach addressing, at a minimum, (1) their capability for providing the services specified in Statement of Work (SOW) and (2) how the offeror plans to comply with each of the requirements specified in the SOW.

In the event there are electronic transmission problems, the following steps shall be taken:i. CDC receives the electronic file timely, but cannot access it. The offeror will be contacted and may be allowed to fax in the portions that cannot be accessed.ii. Facsimile quotes are not authorized. Technical inquiries shall be e-mailed to boh9@cdc.gov.

Quoters are requested not to fax entire proposals to OAS. Facsimile submission shall only be used after contacting the Contract Specialist.Quoters are responsible for providing accurate and complete information for evaluation. (Failure to do so may rule the quote unacceptable.) Proposal shall be submitted in two severable parts as follows: Part I - The Technical Approach and Experience: Technical Approach: Offerors shall include a discussion of their technical approach addressing, at a minimum, (1) their capability for providing the services specified in Statement of Work (SOW) and (2) how the offeror plans to comply with each of the requirements specified in the SOW. Experience: Offerors shall provide in a format similar to Attachment No. 2, Experience/Past Performance Matrix, a list of contracts performed within the past 5 years to show their experience managing same or similar work that is comparable in technical complexity to this requirement. Part II - The Business Quote:Quoters are required to propose firm-fixed prices on a 12 month basis, i.e., from May 1, 2017 to May 30, 2018. See list of titles above. Prices for each title offered shall be inclusive of rates and fees as described in Attachment No. 1, Statement of Work. Past Performance: Past performance is one indicator of the quoter's ability to perform the contract successfully. The government will evaluate different customers' opinions about how well (quality) the offeror has satisfied their requirements. Quoters shall provide, as part of their proposal, a list of clients or former clients for whom they have performed the same or similar work to the one required by this solicitation during the past five years. Offerors shall do this in the same Experience/Past Performance Matrix provided for Experience above. Quoters are advised that we will publicize amendments to solicitations in the same manner as the initial synopsis and solicitation. No hard copy of the solicitation will be mailed. No telephone calls will be honored. All inquiries shall be submitted via email to boh9@cdc.gov before the due date for receipt of quotes. The provision at 52.212-2, Evaluation-Commercial Items (Oct 2014) applies as follows: (a) The Government will award a purchase order resulting from this RFQ to the responsible quoter whose quote conforming to the RFQ will be most advantageous to the Government, price and other factors considered. The following factors shall be used to evaluate offers: (i) Technical approach;(ii) Experience; (b) Technical approach and Experience, when combined, are equal in importance to price.(c) Past performance will be evaluated for only those quoters remaining in the competitive range as follows: 1. Each offeror shall be evaluated on its past performance under current and prior contracts. By past performance, the Government means the offeror's record of conforming to specifications and to standards of good workmanship; the contractor's record of forecasting and controlling costs; the offeror's adherence to contract schedules and terms, including the administrative aspects of performance; the offeror's reputation for reasonable and cooperative behavior and commitment to customer satisfaction; and generally, the offeror's business like concern for the interest of the customer and the degree of quality of deliverables and performance. 2. Past performance will not be scored, but the Government's conclusions about overall quality of the offeror's past performance will be highly influential in determining the relative merits of the offeror's proposal and in selecting the offeror whose proposal is considered the most advantageous/best value to the Government. 3. Evaluation of past performance will be a subjective assessment based on a consideration of all relevant facts and circumstances. It will not be based on absolute standards of acceptable performance. 4. The assessment of the offerors past performance will be used as a means of evaluating the relative capability of the offeror and the other competitors. Thus, an offeror with an exceptional record of relevant past performance may receive a more favorable evaluation than another whose record is acceptable and/or less relevant, even though both may have acceptable technical and business proposals. 5. An offeror without a record of past performance or for whom information on past performance is not available will not be evaluated favorably or unfavorably. 6. Evaluation of past performance information will be reflected in terms of the following degrees of performance assessment: Excellent: A significant majority of the sources of information are consistently firm in stating that the offeror's performance was superior and that they would unhesitatingly do business with the offeror again. Complaints are negligible or unfounded. The offeror has no record of criminal conduct, civil fraud, or negligence, or the record is old and the offeror has demonstrated by more recent performance that corrective action has made the likelihood of such conduct in the future highly improbably. No doubt exists that the offeror will successfully perform the Government's requirements as stated in the RFP. Good: Most sources of information state that the offeror's performance was good, better than average, etc., and that they would willingly do business with the offeror again. Complaints, though perhaps well-founded, are few and relatively minor. The offeror has no record of criminal conduct, civil fraud, or negligence, or the record is old and the offeror has demonstrated by more recent performance that corrective action has made the likelihood of such conduct in the future highly improbable. Little doubt exists that the offeror will successfully perform the Government's requirements as stated in the RFP. Neutral: Either no past performance history exists for the corporation, predecessor companies, key personnel, or major/critical subcontractors, or the offeror's record of past performance was neither predominantly favorable nor unfavorable. In the latter case, sources of information are roughly divided over the quality of the offeror's performance. While some state that they would do business with the offeror again, others are doubtful or would not. Complaints are balanced by reports of good work. The offeror has no record of criminal conduct, civil fraud, or negligence, or the record is old. Marginal: Many sources of information made unfavorable reports about the offeror's performance and either express serious doubts about doing business with the offeror again or state that they would refuse to do so. However, there are some favorable reports, and some sources of information indicate that they would do business with the offeror again. There are many significant, serious, and well-founded complaints, but there are some reports of very good performance. The offeror may have been indicted, pled guilty, or may have been found guilty in matters of criminal conduct, but the issues are either unresolved, relatively minor, or do not reflect a company-wide or managerial pattern of wrongdoing. The offeror may have lost civil suits for fraud or negligence, but there is no company-wide or managerial pattern of fraudulent, negligent, or criminal conduct. Some doubt exists that the offeror will successfully perform the Government's requirements as stated in the RFP. Poor: A significant majority of sources of information are consistently firm in stating that the offeror's performance was entirely unsatisfactory and that they would not do business with the offeror again under any circumstances. Customer complaints are substantial or numerous and are well-founded. Or, although not debarred or suspended, the offeror is under indictment or has been convicted of criminal conduct, or has been found civilly liable for fraud or negligence. The offeror either has presented no persuasive evidence of having taken appropriate corrective action that will guard against such conduct in the foreseeable future, or it appears unlikely that the corrective action will be effective. Serious doubt exists that the offeror will successfully perform the Government requirements as stated in the RFP. (End of Provision)

(Applies only if the contract value is expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold.) The offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that the offeror and/or any of its principals--(1) [_] Are, [_] are not presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency; (2) [_] Have, [_] have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a Federal, state or local government contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or state antitrust statutes relating to the submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws, or receiving stolen property; and(3) [_] Are, [_] are not presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a Government entity with, commission of any of these offenses enumerated in paragraph (h)(2) of this clause; and(4) [_] Have, [_] have not, within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,500 for which the liability remains unsatisfied.(i) Taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply:(A) The tax liability is finally determined.

A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required.

In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights.(C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment.(D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. §362 (the Bankruptcy Code).(i) Certification Regarding Knowledge of Child Labor for Listed End Products (Executive Order 13126).

Vehicle Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) System

Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, Procurement and Materiels | Published February 16, 2017  -  Deadline March 15, 2017
cpvs

MetroAccess Vehicle Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) System Request for Information (RFI) Introduction This is a Request for Information (RFI) only and does not constitute a commitment, implied or otherwise that the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (Metro) will take procurement action in this matter. Further, Metro will not take any responsibility for any cost incurred in providing a response to this RFI. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), requires public transit agencies to provide complementary paratransit service. To fulfill this requirement, Metro operates MetroAccess (MACS) service on behalf of the seven counties and cities in Maryland and Virginia surrounding the District of Columbia (DC) along with DC. MACS is the fifth largest paratransit service in North America, operating 675 paratransit vehicles in daily revenue service and providing 2.4 million passenger trips in 2016. MACS vehicles operate over 25 million miles each year in revenue service. MACS vehicles carry passengers with disabilities. Their safety is Metro's first priority. Understanding incidents or accidents that impact customer safety is improved when CCTV systems that allow continuous recording during revenue operation are available. The ability to engage in on-demand viewing inside of MACS vehicles is an important feature to better ensure safety of passengers, some of which have intellectual disabilities. The knowledge that all activity is being recorded and can be viewed live is an important deterrent to inappropriate workforce behavior and is an essential tool in the event of a situation where police assistance or intervention is required. MACS vehicles are currently installed with DriveCam which permits incident viewing when triggered. Metro uses DriveCam services to understand incidents and to take appropriate action through Metro contractors when DriveCam is activated. Metro desires a more comprehensive and additional video system to supplement DriveCam. These systems will include on-board and an exterior recording package which provides long term storage and on-demand viewing. Metro is also sensitive to pricing and is seeking to identify a CCTV system with on-demand viewing that meets Metro's technical requirements and best use of financial resources. This RFI is a first step in identifying a CCTV system suitable for MACS paratransit van use to meet Metro objectives. Systems that work with carrier fleet data packages that allow on-demand viewing at reasonable pricing are required. MACS vans are replaced every 5 years. 675 will be replaced in the next 5 years and the fleet is expected to expand by 100 during that same time. The total requirement for CCTV therefore is for 775 vehicles during a 5 year time span. MACS paratransit vehicles are currently built on the Ford Transit extended, high roof platform. The CCTV system must meet the following general requirements. 1. Provide an interior view of the vehicle that captures the entire passenger seating and wheelchair tie down area. 2. Provide a view of the entry areas of the vehicle to include passenger side stepped entry leading into the van and the deployed wheelchair lift area outside the van. 3. On demand viewing from CCTV cameras from a MACS command center and through MACS authorized laptop equipment. 4. System will allow Metro to obtain lower cost data packages from wireless carriers for the entire fleet (as opposed to costly individual data packages for each vehicle). Vendor recommendations on fleet data packages in the Washington DC area that will work with vendor's equipment are requested. 5. High resolution video that can operate and transmit clear viewable video under day and night conditions. 6. Provides recorded video that is available for a reasonable period of time as recommended by the contractor. 7. System cannot be turned off by the vehicle operator and the video cannot be erased by the vehicle operator. 8. Video is easily retrieved by MACS and or MACS contractor staff. 9. Equipment is durable and must have an equipment life of at least 5 years. 10. Must be able to operate inside and outside the van under all weather and temperature conditions. The CCTV system may meet the following optional requirements. 1. Allows additional cameras capturing up to three additional views; a view along the length of the driver side of the van, a view behind the van, and a view of the area outside the van on the passenger side. 2. Provides recording capacity time that can be selected by Metro up to 1 month of normal viewing (estimated at around 350 hours per camera per month). Comments by the vendor on the suitability of the vendor's equipment in a paratransit application are desired. While CCTV in large transit buses is relatively common, CCTV in smaller paratransit vans is not common. Information provided by the vendor documenting the ability of the vendor's system to meet paratransit service needs at a lower price point than CCTV equipment normally found in large transit buses is highly desired. Metro is issuing a Request for Information to obtain recommendations. The information received in response to this Request for Information will be used by Metro to determine the next action steps to move forward. A response will not result in an award. Also, WMATA does not commit to any incurred cost in preparation of a response to this Request for Information. If you have questions, please e-mail them to dfarmer@wmata.com no later than close of business, Friday, March 3, 2017.

All questions submitted within the allotted time will be answered within 24 hours.Certification Regarding Responsibility Matters (Apr 2010) (a) (1) The Offeror certifies, to the best of its knowledge and belief, that -- (i) The Offeror and/or any of its Principals -- (A) Are [_] are not [_] presently debarred, suspended, proposed for debarment, or declared ineligible for the award of contracts by any Federal agency; (B) Have [_] have not [_], within a three-year period preceding this offer, been convicted of or had a civil judgment rendered against them for: commission of fraud or a criminal offense in connection with obtaining, attempting to obtain, or performing a public (Federal, State, or local) contract or subcontract; violation of Federal or State antitrust statutes relating to the submission of offers; or commission of embezzlement, theft, forgery, bribery, falsification or destruction of records, making false statements, tax evasion, violating Federal criminal tax laws, or receiving stolen property (if offeror checks “have”, the offeror shall also see 52.209-7, if included in this solicitation); and (C) Are [_] are not [_] presently indicted for, or otherwise criminally or civilly charged by a governmental entity with, commission of any of the offenses enumerated in paragraph (a)(1)(i)(B) of this provision; and (D) Have [_], have not [_], within a three-year period preceding this offer, been notified of any delinquent Federal taxes in an amount that exceeds $3,000 for which the liability remains unsatisfied. (1) Federal taxes are considered delinquent if both of the following criteria apply: (i) The tax liability is finally determined. The liability is finally determined if it has been assessed. A liability is not finally determined if there is a pending administrative or judicial challenge. In the case of a judicial challenge to the liability, the liability is not finally determined until all judicial appeal rights have been exhausted. (ii) The taxpayer is delinquent in making payment. A taxpayer is delinquent if the taxpayer has failed to pay the tax liability when full payment was due and required. A taxpayer is not delinquent in cases where enforced collection action is precluded.(2) Examples. (i) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. §6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek Tax Court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (ii) The IRS has filed a notice of Federal tax lien with respect to an assessed tax liability, and the taxpayer has been issued a notice under I.R.C. §6320 entitling the taxpayer to request a hearing with the IRS Office of Appeals contesting the lien filing, and to further appeal to the Tax Court if the IRS determines to sustain the lien filing. In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (iii) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (iv) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection. The taxpayer is not delinquent because enforced collection action is stayed under 11 U.S.C. 362 (the Bankruptcy Code). (ii) The Offeror has [[_] has not [_], within a three-year period preceding this offer, had one or more contracts terminated for default by any Federal agency. (2) “Principal,” for the purposes of this certification, means an officer; director; owner; partner; or a person having primary management or supervisory responsibilities within a business entity (e.g., general manager; plant manager; head of a division or business segment; and similar positions). This Certification Concerns a Matter Within the Jurisdiction of an Agency of the United States and the Making of a False, Fictitious, or Fraudulent Certification May Render the Maker Subject to Prosecution Under Section 1001, Title 18, United States Code. (b) The Offeror shall provide immediate written notice to the Contracting Officer if, at any time prior to contract award, the Offeror learns that its certification was erroneous when submitted or has become erroneous by reason of changed circumstances.(c) A certification that any of the items in paragraph (a) of this provision exists will not necessarily result in withholding of an award under this solicitation. However, the certification will be considered in connection with a determination of the Offeror’s responsibility. Failure of the Offeror to furnish a certification or provide such additional information as requested by the Contracting Officer may render the Offeror non-responsible. (d) Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of a system of records in order to render, in good faith, the certification required by paragraph (a) of this provision. The knowledge and information of an Offeror is not required to exceed that which is normally possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings. (e) The certification in paragraph (a) of this provision is a material representation of fact upon which reliance was placed when making award. If it is later determined that the Offeror knowingly rendered an erroneous certification, in addition to other remedies available to the Government, the Contracting Officer may terminate the contract resulting from this solicitation for default.Contractor SHALL provide the approved water distributor's name, address, and inspection responsibility code (IRC) with the bid.
