If the Seller wishes to make use of such items in connection with direct sales to the Government, the Seller shall obtain a written statement from the Buyer of the Government's title or vested interest and the Buyer shall give written authority where the Government has title or vested interest, provided that the delivery schedule under this order is not adversely affected.

Note: This section does not apply to work to be performed outside of the United States.) Contractor will ensure that each individual performing this contract, who has access to the Buyer’s manufacturing or technical data, is either a citizen of the United States, a lawful permanent resident as defined by 8 USC §1101(a)(20) or a protected individual as defined by 8 USC §1324(a)(3). This contract requirement is a direct result of the requirements levied on the Buyer by the U.S. Department of State through its International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR Parts 120 through 130.) Clause 2: (Applies where the Contractor is required to use or evaluate the Buyer’s technical data. However it is not applicable where the contract services are to be performed overseas.)The Contractors will ensure that each individual it uses to perform the Contract is –(i)a citizen of the United States, (ii) a lawful permanent resident as defined by 8 USC §1101(a)(20), (iii) a protected individual as defined by 8 USC §1324(a)(3), or(iv) a foreign national for whom a current and directly relevant license or approval has been obtained from the US Department of State, as set forth in the International Traffic in Arms Regulations at 22 CFR Sections 120 through 130, which license or approval is directly relevant to the work to be performed under this Contract.

    For those instances where Contractor is using persons who fall within the requirements of (iv), above, the Contractor shall provide the buyer with a copy of the license or approval at the time that the Contractor assigns the individual to perform any portion of the Contract. For those instances where Contractor is using foreign nationals without a license or approval, the Contractor shall so notify the buyer and, if requested, provide the buyer with a detailed explanation of the steps undertaken to ensure that these persons are not gaining access to the buyer’s technical data as prescribed at 22 CFR Section 120.10 as that term is defined in the International in Arms Regulations, at 22 CFR Section 120. This contract requirement is a direct result of the requirements levied on the Buyer by the U.S. Department of State through its International Traffic in Arms Regulations (22 CFR Parts 120 through 130). The Contractor will flow down this clause to those of its subcontractors who will be assigned to perform any portion of the work set forth in the “Contract.”

    1. Definitions for purposes of this Contract:
      1. “Counterfeit Parts” shall mean a part, component, module, or assembly whose origin, material, source of manufacture, performance, or characteristics are misrepresented.

      2. defective parts and/or surplus material scrapped by the original manufacturer, and (3) previously used parts pulled or reclaimed and provided as “new.”
      3. As used herein, “authentic” shall mean (1) genuine; (2) from the legitimate source claimed or implied by the marking and design of the product offered; and (3) manufactured by, or at the behest and to the standards of, the manufacturer that has lawfully applied its name and trademark for that model/version of the material.

Independent Distributors are also referred to as unfranchised distributors, unauthorized distributors, and/or brokers.
    2. Seller represents and warrants that only new and authentic materials are used in products required to be delivered to Buyer and that the work delivered contains no counterfeit parts. No other material, part, or component other than a new and authentic part is to be used unless approved in advance in writing by Buyer. To further mitigate the possibility of the inadvertent use of counterfeit parts, Seller shall only purchase authentic parts/components directly from the Original Equipment Manufacturers (“OEMs”)/ OCM’s or through the OEM’s/OCM’s authorized distribution chain. Seller must make available to Buyer, at Buyer’s request, OEM/OCM documentation that authenticates traceability of the components to that applicable OEM/OCM.

    3. Seller shall maintain a documented system (policy, procedure, or other documented approach) that provides for prior notification and Buyer approval before parts/components are procured from sources other than OEMs/OCMs or through the OEM’s/OCM’s authorized distribution chain. Seller shall provide copies of such documentation for its system for Buyer’s inspection upon Buyer’s request.
    4. If Seller is providing electronic components/devices only, the following certification applies: Certification of Origin of Product: Acceptance of this Contract constitutes confirmation by Seller that it is either the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM), Original Component Manufacturer (OCM), or a franchised or authorized distributor of the OEM/OCM for the product herein procured. Seller further warrants that OEM/OCM acquisition documentation that authenticates traceability of the components to that applicable OEM is available upon request.If Seller is not the OEM/OCM or a franchised or authorized distributor, Seller confirms by acceptance of this Contract that each product supplied to Buyer has been procured from the OEM/OCM or a franchised or authorized distributor of the OEM/OCM. Seller further warrants that OEM/OCM acquisition traceability documentation is accurate and available to Buyer upon Buyer’s request.
    5. Seller shall flow the requirements of this provision to its subcontractors and suppliers at any tier for the performance of this Contract.
  27. COMPLIANCE WITH LAW In addition to the clauses and terms set forth in the contract/order Terms and Conditions, including those set forth above, the following clauses, as set forth in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) and the Department of Defense Federal Acquisition Supplement (DFARS), are incorporated herein and are applicable hereto by this reference except those clauses which are exempt in FAR and DFARS or in the clauses (self-deleting) because of the dollar value of this order.

Clauses in this document may not be applicable to specific orders due to the type of subcontract/purchase order to be issued, dollar thresholds under requirements of the FAR, DFARS or Public Law or Mandatory Flow Down requirements of a particular prime contract.
