Sec. 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. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. Sec. 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.

For line items covered by the WTO GPA, the Government will evaluate offers of U.S.-made or designated country end products without regard to the restrictions of the Buy American statute. The Government will consider for award only offers of U.S.-made or designated country end products unless the Contracting Officer determines that there are no offers for such products or that the offers for such products are insufficient to fulfill the requirements of the solicitation. (h) Certification Regarding Responsibility Matters (Executive Order 12689). (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; (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. 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. (B) 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. (ii) Examples. (A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. Sec. 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. (B) 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. Sec. 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. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. Sec. 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). (1) Listed end products. Listed End Product Listed Countries of Origin (END-PRODUCT-1) (COUNTRY-ORIGIN-1) (END-PRODUCT-2) (COUNTRY-ORIGIN-2) (END-PRODUCT-3) (COUNTRY-ORIGIN-3) (END-PRODUCT-4) (COUNTRY-ORIGIN-4) (END-PRODUCT-5) (COUNTRY-ORIGIN-5) (2) Certification.

(k) Certificates regarding exemptions from the application of the Service Contract Labor Standards. (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.) [ ] (1) Maintenance, calibration, or repair of certain equipment as described in FAR 22.1003-4(c)(1). The offeror [ ] does [ ] does not certify that- (i) The items of equipment to be serviced under this contract are used regularly for other than Governmental purposes and are sold or traded by the offeror (or subcontractor in the case of an exempt subcontract) in substantial quantities to the general public in the course of normal business operations; (ii) The services will be furnished at prices which are, or are based on, established catalog or market prices (see FAR 22.1003- 4(c)(2)(ii)) for the maintenance, calibration, or repair of such equipment; and (iii) The compensation (wage and fringe benefits) plan for all service employees performing work under the contract will be the same as that used for these employees and equivalent employees servicing the same equipment of commercial customers.

Statement of Work Access Control/Surveillance System - Bay Pines VA Healthcare System Background Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Office of Operations, Security, and Preparedness (OSP) HSPD-12 Program Management Office (PMO) has mandated Physical Access Control Systems (PACS) be standardized throughout the VA at the enterprise level. To this end, Bay Pines VAHCS conducted a project in 2013 to replace the legacy PACS system with the HSPD-12-compliant system Software House CCURE 9000 version 2.02. This project also upgraded the existing Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) Surveillance System to Avigilon version 5.2.0.20. Additional security vulnerabilities have been identified by Bay Pines VAHCS that require installation of access control hardware that is compatible with the Physical Access Control System used by the healthcare system. Objective The objective of this Statement of Work is to provide the necessary services and equipment to replace and transfer duress alarms from the previously used security system to the CCURE 9000 version 2.02 system at specified locations on the C. W. Bill Young VAMC campus. Scope of Work The contractor will provide hardware and services required to add duress alarms to enterprise CCURE 9000 system to the following locations: Monitor Point Description Room # # of Buttons Area Security Panel Location Duress - Bldg 100 ER Nurse's Station A 1E213 4 ED SB1-8 Duress - Bldg 100 ER Nurse's Station B 1E212 3 ED SB1-8 Duress Bldg-100 Emergency Room Rec 1E226 1 ED SB1-8 Duress Bldg100 Emergency reception area 1E226 1 ED SB1-8 Duress Bldg-100 Emergency Rm Psych 1 1E233 1 ED SB1-8 Duress Bldg-100 Emergency Rm Psych 2 1E233 1 ED SB1-8 Duress - IP Pharmacy Office- Chief 1C121 1 IP PHARM 1F112 Duress - IP Pharmacy Office-Asst.

The number of buttons required at each input location is listed. The hardware provided will consist of Sentrol Clamshell Duress Buttons, part number 3045-W, for each location. These duress alarms will be hard wired in EMT conduit, minimum ¾" diameter, and networked to the existing PACS system in the nearest distribution panel to each duress alarm location in building 100. Existing conduit for current duress buttons may be reused as practical, but is not available in all locations and additional conduit will be needed to connect from previous security panel locations to new distribution panels designated in drawings. The closest connection points for the security system to each installation location are identified in attached drawings. Contractor will provide all equipment and materials necessary to connect the designated duress alarm locations to the existing security system. The contractor is required to identify the equipment, software, and data deliverables that are required from the contractor to complete this statement of work; and to identify applicable requirements and/or restrictions. The Contractor will provide the initial software configuration of all security components installed, with input from Bay Pines VAHCS Engineering Department regarding standard naming conventions and configuration preferences. All wiring shall be enclosed in EMT conduit with a minimum ¾ inch diameter, properly installed per NEC with compression fittings. Prior to installation a walk-thru with the COR and the Contractor will be conducted to identify specific locations listed in this Statement of Work. No VA sensitive information will be stored, generated, transmitted or exchanged from the PACS system used for access control. Vendor must provide a 1-year parts/support warranty on all equipment for the computer/security system. General Requirements All employees of the vendor and subcontractors shall comply with the VA security management program and obtain permission of the VA police, be identified by the contract and employer, and restricted from unauthorized access. This will be coordinated with the VA Police by the contracting officer's representative (COR). The vendor's employees shall not enter the work site without appropriate badge. They may also be subject to inspection of their personal effects when entering or leaving the project site. Badges shall be provided by the Government to the vendor for distribution to on-site employees of the vendor and all Subcontractors. If physical keys are needed by the contractor for access to the area of work, they will be signed out by one of the vendor's employees from the COR. If a key is lost by a contractor, it must be reported to the COR as soon as possible, at which time a police report will be completed by the VA Police. The vendor may be fined for the replacement of locks and keys required as a direct result of the loss of the key assigned to their employee. For working outside the "regular hours" as defined in the contract, the vendor shall give 3 day notice to the Contracting Officer so that arrangements can be provided for the employees. This notice is separate from any notices required for utility shutdown described later in this section. No photography of VA premises is allowed without written permission of the Contracting Officer. VA reserves the right to close down or shut down the project site and order the vendor's employees off the premises in the event of a national emergency. The vendor may return to the site only with the written approval of the Contracting Officer.

The contractor/subcontractor shall not make copies of VA information except as authorized and necessary to perform the terms of the agreement or to preserve electronic information stored on contractor/subcontractor electronic storage media for restoration in case any electronic equipment or data used by the contractor/subcontractor needs to be restored to an operating state. If copies are made for restoration purposes, after the restoration is complete, the copies must be appropriately destroyed. f. If VA determines that the contractor has violated any of the information confidentiality, privacy, and security provisions of the contract, it shall be sufficient grounds for VA to withhold payment to the contractor or third party or terminate the contract for default or terminate for cause under Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) part 12. g. The contractor/subcontractor's firewall and Web services security controls, if applicable, shall meet or exceed VA's minimum requirements. VA Configuration Guidelines are available upon request. h. Except for uses and disclosures of VA information authorized by this contract for performance of the contract, the contractor/subcontractor may use and disclose VA information only in two other situations: (i) in response to a qualifying order of a court of competent jurisdiction, or (ii) with VA's prior written approval.

To the extent known by the contractor/subcontractor, the contractor/subcontractor's notice to VA shall identify the information involved, the circumstances surrounding the incident (including to whom, how, when, and where the VA information or assets were placed at risk or compromised), and any other information that the contractor/subcontractor considers relevant. c. In instances of theft or break-in or other criminal activity, the contractor/subcontractor must concurrently report the incident to the appropriate law enforcement entity (or entities) of jurisdiction, including the VA OIG and Security and Law Enforcement. The contractor, its employees, and its subcontractors and their employees shall cooperate with VA and any law enforcement authority responsible for the investigation and prosecution of any possible criminal law violation(s) associated with any incident. The contractor/subcontractor shall cooperate with VA in any civil litigation to recover VA information, obtain monetary or other compensation from a third party for damages arising from any incident, or obtain injunctive relief against any third party arising from, or related to, the incident. LIQUIDATED DAMAGES FOR DATA BREACH a. Consistent with the requirements of 38 U.S.C. §5725, a contract may require access to sensitive personal information. If so, the contractor is liable to VA for liquidated damages in the event of a data breach or privacy incident involving any SPI the contractor/subcontractor processes or maintains under this contract. b. The contractor/subcontractor shall provide notice to VA of a "security incident" as set forth in the Security Incident Investigation section above. Upon such notification, VA must secure from a non-Department entity or the VA Office of Inspector General an independent risk analysis of the data breach to determine the level of risk associated with the data breach for the potential misuse of any sensitive personal information involved in the data breach. The term 'data breach' means the loss, theft, or other unauthorized access, or any access other than that incidental to the scope of employment, to data containing sensitive personal information, in electronic or printed form, that results in the potential compromise of the confidentiality or integrity of the data. Contractor shall fully cooperate with the entity performing the risk analysis. Failure to cooperate may be deemed a material breach and grounds for contract termination. c. Each risk analysis shall address all relevant information concerning the data breach, including the following: (1) Nature of the event (loss, theft, unauthorized access); (2) Description of the event, including: (a) date of occurrence; (b) data elements involved, including any PII, such as full name, social security number, date of birth, home address, account number, disability code; (3) Number of individuals affected or potentially affected; (4) Names of individuals or groups affected or potentially affected; (5) Ease of logical data access to the lost, stolen or improperly accessed data in light of the degree of protection for the data, e.g., unencrypted, plain text; (6) Amount of time the data has been out of VA control; (7) The likelihood that the sensitive personal information will or has been compromised (made accessible to and usable by unauthorized persons); (8) Known misuses of data containing sensitive personal information, if any; (9) Assessment of the potential harm to the affected individuals; (10) Data breach analysis as outlined in 6500.2 Handbook, Management of Security and Privacy Incidents, as appropriate; and (11) whether credit protection services may assist record subjects in avoiding or mitigating the results of identity theft based on the sensitive personal information that may have been compromised. d. Based on the determinations of the independent risk analysis, the contractor shall be responsible for paying to the VA liquidated damages in the amount of $5,000 per affected individual to cover the cost of providing credit protection services to affected individuals consisting of the following: (1) Notification; (2) One year of credit monitoring services consisting of automatic daily monitoring of at least 3 relevant credit bureau reports; (3) Data breach analysis; (4) Fraud resolution services, including writing dispute letters, initiating fraud alerts and credit freezes, to assist affected individuals to bring matters to resolution; (5) One year of identity theft insurance with $20,000.00 coverage at $0 deductible; and (6) Necessary legal expenses the subjects may incur to repair falsified or damaged credit records, histories, or financial affairs. SECURITY CONTROLS COMPLIANCE TESTING On a periodic basis, VA, including the Office of Inspector General, reserves the right to evaluate any or all of the security controls and privacy practices implemented by the contractor under the clauses contained within the contract.
