CONSUMABLE SUPPLIES The vendor must respond to verbal requests for additional consumable supplies under the following conditions: 1. Orders for additional consumable supplies will be made by the key operators. 2. The vendor must deliver additional consumable supplies within a period of twenty-four hours after receipt of verbal order. 3. Supplies from the vendor shall be delivered between 7;30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday (excluding Federal holidays) directly to the copier location. MAINTENANCE Preventive Maintenance: The vendor will provide at a minimum, one yearly service call as a preventive maintenance service to ensure that the copiers furnished are maintained in good working condition. Such preventive maintenance shall be in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations and will be equal to maintenance, which is provided to commercial customers for the same models of copiers. Response to Service Calls: The vendor will respond to service calls during normal working hours, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays observed by the Federal Government. The vendor must respond to verbal service calls within four (4) working hours after notification of malfunction. Service calls for machines identified as critical shall be responded to within two (2) working hours. The response time on a service call starts when the authorized personnel of a participating agency/activity places a service call to the vendor. The service technician will report to the agency/activity requesting service and notify them of his/her arrival and verify the problem for which the service call was made. After the call is completed, the service technician will contact the service requestor, key operator, or any government employee within the office, whether or not the service is completed satisfactory.

REPLACEMENT AND BACKUP EQUIPMENT Replacement copiers are those that are installed in place of malfunctioning copiers. They are intended to remain in place for the remainder of the contract period. Backup copiers are those that are installed in place of malfunctioning copiers in order to provide temporary relief until the original equipment is repaired or until replacement copiers are installed. Replacement copiers-Printers: During the contract period, should the repair record of any copiers reflect a downtime of 10% or more of the normal working day in one 30 day period, a determination will be made by the Contracting Officer Representative (COR) to replace the initial copiers with new copiers, or to have the vendor's management representative certify on the repair record that sufficient repairs have been made to preclude additional abnormal breakdowns. In those cases where a copier, having been certified as above, continues to suffer an abnormal rate of breakdowns for two consecutive months, the vendor must provide a replacement. The responsibility for maintaining copiers furnished is the sole responsibility of the vendor. Back-up Equipment: When a copier cannot be repaired within 16 working hours after a satisfactory response to notification of any malfunction, it will be the option of the COR to request backup equipment. Back-up equipment can only be requested by the COR. If requested, the vendor must have the capability to deliver backup equipment within sixteen (16) working hours of notice. Backup equipment must meet or exceed the capabilities of the basic machine to be replaced (with the exception of facsimile and networking capabilities), at the same cost rate for the location. Backup equipment may only remain in place for a maximum of 80 working hours. By the expiration of this time, if the original machine has not been repaired, the vendor must provide a replacement machine of the same make and model, or better, as the original copiers upon removal of the back-up machine.

(m) Subcontracts. The Contractor shall- (1) Include the substance of this clause, including this paragraph (m), in all subcontracts, including subcontracts for commercial items; and(2) Require subcontractors to rapidly report cyber incidents directly to DoD at http://dibnet.dod.mil and the prime Contractor.
