PERFORMANCE AND DELIVERY


F-1.1

Performance. Performance of program management services under CLIN 0001 shall


commence upon award and end upon delivery to and acceptance of the Vessel by the
Government. Following delivery of the Vessel, program management support services
will be included in the daily charter hire rate. CLIN 0001 does not include time charter
services. Time charter services and reimbursables, as well as the Port Operations
Coordinator services, under CLINs 0004-0018, shall commence upon delivery of the
vessel at the location specified in Box 2.

F-1.2

Delivery. Time is of the essence for delivery of the Vessel. It is anticipated by the
parties that the Vessel will be delivered within the laydays specified in Box 5 and any
delay in delivery beyond the laydays cancelling date shall constitute a material breach of
this contract. The Government may take delivery of the vessel prior to the flight deck
receiving certification if the delay in certification is caused by the Government and if the
contractor is able to prove that the vessel, as delivered, is constructed to meet Aviation
Attachment 4 requirements, NAVAIR 4.8.2.5 Air Capable Ship Aviation Facilities
Bulletin No. 1M requirements, and USCG Navigation and Vessel Inspection Circular
(NVIC) flight deck requirements. The Vessel and all Associated Equipment shall be
delivered to the Charterer at a port or place in accordance with Box 2 not later than 1600
hours local time at place of delivery on the date stated in Box 5, the Owner giving
written notice of readiness during office hours to the appropriate Government
representative at the port or place of delivery on a working day (Saturdays, Sundays, or
other recognized weekly days of rest, U.S. Government holidays, and holidays observed
at the delivery port, whether national or local, shall not be considered working days). At
the end of the ramp-up period, prior to delivery of the vessel, the vessel will undergo a
two-week pre-delivery survey, whereby the Government will inspect all modifications
and conduct sea trials while the vessel is transitioning to the delivery location.
Government inspection of the Vessel shall be completed within a reasonable amount of
time thereafter, not exceeding twenty-four (24) hours after proper tender of the notice of
readiness, (Saturdays, Sundays, or other recognized weekly days of rest, U.S.
Government holidays, and holidays observed at the delivery port, whether national or
local, excepted in the computation of said twenty-four hour period). Hire shall
commence upon acceptance of the Vessel by the Charterer but not before the date
commencing in Box 5.

PERFORMANCE AND DELIVERY SCHEDULE


The contractor shall, within three (3) business days after contract award, prepare and submit to
the Contracting Officer for approval a practicable performance schedule for delivery of the
Vessel in accordance with Box 5. The schedule shall show the order in which the contractor
proposes to perform any required dry docking or shipyard work necessary to prepare the Vessel
for delivery, and the dates on which the contractor contemplates starting and completing the
salient features of the work. The schedule shall also show, with appropriate deviations and
sequence logic, reflagging (if required), transit time, Government-furnished equipment
installation, and any other major activities, necessary to deliver the Vessel. The schedule shall
be in the form of a progress chart of suitable scale to indicate appropriately the percentage of
work scheduled for completion by any given date during the period.

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 57 of 127

The contractor shall enter actual progress on the approved progress chart and provide an updated
copy to the Contracting Officer weekly. If the contractor identifies that work or changes required
by the Government will result in a schedule delay, the contractor shall notify the Contracting
Officer prior to commencing the work. Failure to provide advance notification of the potential
delay to the Contracting Officer will constitute acceptance by the contractor of all responsibility
for delays related to the work.
If, in the opinion of the Contracting Officer, the contractor falls behind the approved schedule,
the contractor shall identify the causes of schedule delays and take steps necessary to improve
progress, including those that may be required by the Contracting Officer, without additional cost
to the Government. In this circumstance, the Contracting Officer may require the contractor to
increase the number of shifts, overtime operations, days of work, or other activities necessary
and to submit for approval any supplementary schedule or schedules in chart form as the
Contracting Officer deems necessary to demonstrate how the approved rate of progress will be
regained.
Failure of the contractor to comply with the requirements of the Contracting Officer under this
clause shall be grounds for a determination by the Contracting Officer that the contractor is not
prosecuting the work with sufficient diligence to ensure delivery of the Vessel within the time
specified in the contract. Upon making this determination, the Contracting Officer may
terminate the contract in accordance with the default terms of this contract.
F-3

CONDITION
The Vessel and all Associated Equipment shall be, insofar as due diligence can make them so,
seaworthy, properly and efficiently manned and trained, equipped, supplied, and in every way
suitable and adequately fitted for and in all respects ready for the service contemplated under this
Charter Party. Any Associated Equipment shall upon delivery be as described in this Charter
Party and all cargo-handling equipment shall be rigged, secured, and operable. The Owner shall
exercise due diligence to maintain the Vessel and Associated Equipment in such state during the
period of this Charter Party.

F-4

VESSEL REDELIVERY
Unless lost, the Vessel shall be redelivered at a port or place in accordance with Box 3. The
Charterer shall give the Owner no less than one (1) days notice of expected date and range of
redelivery, and of actual port or place of redelivery. Redelivery notice shall not impair the
Charterers right to exercise any options under this Charter.

F-5

PORTS/PLACES (MSC 5252.247-9810 (AUG 2005))


F-5.1

Safety. The Charterer shall exercise due diligence to order the Vessel to safe berths or
places (or alongside vessels or lighters reachable on her arrival and designated/procured
by the Charterer) that the Vessel can approach, lie at, and depart from always accessible,
always afloat. The Charterer shall not, however, be deemed to warrant the safety of any
berth or place and shall not be liable or accountable for any loss, damage, injury, or
delay resulting from any unsafe condition at any berth or place unless caused by the
Charterer's failure to exercise due diligence as aforesaid. Any lightering will be at the
expense of the Charterer; however, in the event the Charterer directs the Owner to

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 58 of 127

arrange for lighterage services, the Owner shall make all necessary arrangements
therefore.
F-5.2

F-6

Ice. The Vessel shall not be ordered or bound to enter any port or place inaccessible due
to ice or at which lights, lightships, markers, or buoys on Vessel's arrival are (or are
likely to be) withdrawn by reason of ice. The Vessel shall not be obliged to force ice. If
a port or place to which the Vessel is ordered is inaccessible due to ice, the Master shall
immediately notify the Charterer requesting revised orders and shall remain outside the
ice-bound area. If there is danger of the Vessel being frozen in at any port or place, the
Vessel shall, at Master's discretion, proceed to the nearest safe and ice-free position, at
the same time requesting the Charterer's revised orders. Any delay or detention resulting
from ice shall be for the Charterer's account.

CHARTER PERIOD
This Charter Party shall be for the period designated in Box 4, commencing upon the Charterer's
acceptance of the Vessel and continuing until either the date of her redelivery or the completion
of the voyage then current, at the Charterer's sole option. Any option periods shall be in direct
continuation; shall be without guaranty at the Charterer's sole option; and shall be declared as
specified in Section I. Optional periods may be declared at any time prior to redelivery of the
Vessel.

The information contained in this instruction is supplemental to DFARS 252.232-7006.

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 67 of 127

The information contained in the table in DFARS 252.232-7006 is for WAWF purposes only. Information included
in DFARS 252.232-7006 and this WAWF instruction apply only to WAWF Invoicing and WAWF Receiving
Reports. Contradictory information elsewhere in this contract, e.g. Ship to DoDAAC, shall be followed per the
terms and conditions of the contract.
When entering the invoice into WAWF, the Contractor shall fill in the DoDAAC fields or DoDAAC extensions
exactly as shown in the table in DFARS 252.232-7006. Fields that should not be filled in when entering the invoice
into WAWF will be indicated with the direction, "Leave Blank."
In some situations the WAWF system will pre-populate the "Pay DoDAAC," "Admin By DoDAAC" and "Issue By
DoDAAC." The Contractor shall verify that those DoDAACs automatically entered by the WAWF system match the
information in the table in DFARS 252.232-7006. If these DoDAACs do not match, then the Contractor shall
correct the field(s).
If Receiving Reports are required, ensure that the "Inspection" and "Acceptance" defaults of "destination" for both
fields are not changed in the WAWF online interface.
The CLINs on the WAWF invoice shall be entered exactly as set forth in the contract document including CLIN
number (e.g. 0001), Quantity (may be adjusted for actual quantity or dollar value delivered and invoiced), and Unit
Price (e.g. $1.00). The dollar amounts on each CLIN or SubCLIN on the WAWF invoice shall reflect final
performance values, but in no instance can the dollar amount for each CLIN or SubCLIN exceed what is specified in
the contract document. The Contractor shall bill to the lowest level, e.g., the SubCLIN level. The Quantity and Unit
of Measure fields must be filled out exactly as indicated in the CLINs and SubCLINs to reduce the possibility of the
invoice being delayed or rejected during processing.
Before closing out of an invoice session in WAWF, but after submitting the document or documents, the Contractor
will be given the option to send additional email notifications by clicking on the "Send More Email Notifications"
link that appears on the page. The Contractor shall click on this link and add the Technical Point of Contact's
(TPOC) or Contracting Officer's Representative's (COR) email address in the first email address block and add any
other additional email addresses desired in the following blocks. This additional notification to the Government is
important to ensure the acceptor/receiver is aware that the invoice documents have been submitted into the WAWF
system.

H4 War.
H4.1 Voyage Instructions. Operating limits of the vessel subject to this contract shall be
worldwide. If the Vessel is ordered under this Charter Party to any port, place, or zone involved
in a state of war, warlike operations or hostilities, civil strife, or piracy (whether there be a
declaration of war or not) where it might be reasonably expected to be subject to capture, seizure,
arrest, or hostile act by a belligerent power (whether de facto or de jure), pirate, or terrorist, it
shall be unreasonable for the contractor not to prosecute said voyage if insurance against said
risks is then available commercially or under a Government program, or if the Government offers
the contractor indemnification against said risks pursuant to Public Law 85804 (72 Stat. 972,
August 28, 1958).
H4.2 The Contractor shall immediately notify the Charterer: (i) whenever any sailing orders will
result in the Vessel subject to this contract being sent beyond the limits of the War Risk Trading
Warranties of insurance policies required under this contract (to include entry into a war risk
exclusion zone or when the Vessel will enter, sail for, or deviate towards the territorial waters of
any of the Countries or places or any other waters described in the Lloyds Joint War
Committees current Hull War, Strikes, Terrorism and Related Perils Listed Areas); (ii) if there
are any changes to the War Risk Trading Warranties of insurance policies required under this
contract (including changes to the exclusion zones or the Hull War, Strikes, Terrorism and
Related Perils Listed Areas) or changes to War Risk premiums, charges, or deductibles; or (iii)
whenever additional premium charges or costs will be incurred as a direct result of compliance
with any sailing orders issued by the Charterer under this contract. The contractor shall ensure
that the insurers provide it relevant information in a timely manner. If the contractor has given
this required notice to the Charterer, the Charterer will reimburse the contractor for the increase
in costs (if any) of insurance premiums, charges, or deductibles which arise from the vessel
sailing beyond the applicable War Risk Trading Warranties (including changes to the war risk
exclusion zones) when entry into any exclusion zone or Hull War, Strikes, Terrorism and Related
Perils Listed Areas under such insurance has been approved in advance by the Charterer. The
issuance of sailing orders, by itself, does not constitute approval in advance by the Charterer.
The Charterer may give the contractor notice and instructions concerning suspension of
commercial War Risk insurance coverage and substitution of Government indemnity or
Government War Risk insurance as detailed in the section entitled Government War Risk
Insurance/Indemnity below.
H4.3 Additional Wage Costs. The Charterer shall reimburse contractor for the cost of provable
additional master and crew wages (including all additional bonuses and payments required) to
the extent that such additional costs arise directly from exposure of the Vessel, and/or Vessels
master and crew, to the risks described in the paragraph entitled Voyage Instructions above.
However, any of said wages or payments shall not exceed in amount that which would be

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 73 of 127

payable, under applicable laws and regulations, to U.S. civil service mariners in the employ of
the Military Sealift Command in a similar port, place, zone, or route. Contractor shall notify
Charterer of all anticipated additional wage costs prior to entering any location which would
trigger such additional costs; and no such costs shall be reimbursable unless Charterer, after
notification of such costs, provides approval to enter such location.
H5 Government War Risk Insurance/Indemnity.
H5.1 General. Upon receipt of notice and instruction from the Contracting Officer, as specified
in the last sentence of Section 4.2 of the section entitled War (H4) above, with respect to any
area excluded by the War Risk Trading Warranties or included by the Lloyds Joint War
Committee on the Hull War, Strikes, Terrorism and Related Perils Listed Areas under the
contractors commercial War Risk coverage, the contractor shall, as soon as practicable, contact
its insurance brokers or underwriters and arrange for the suspension of its commercial War Risk
insurance upon entry of the vessel into, or extension of stay of the vessel in such area(s), or when
the vessel will enter, sail for, or deviate towards the territorial waters of any of the Countries or
places, or any other waters described in the Lloyds Joint War Committees current Hull War,
Strikes, Terrorism and Related Perils Listed Areas , as the case may be, subject to resumption of
its commercial War Risk insurance upon exiting such area(s). In such instances, the contractor
shall accept the Governments indemnity or War Risk insurance, whichever is applicable, in lieu
of such commercial War Risk insurance. The contractor shall ensure that the suspension of its
commercial War Risk coverage is coincident with the time that any Government indemnity or
War Risk insurance becomes effective, and shall likewise ensure that its commercial War Risk
insurance is resumed at the time when any Government indemnity or War Risk insurance
becomes ineffective. The contractor shall retain the same risks, such as deductibles (if any), that
it has under its commercial insurance.
H5.2 Government War Risk Insurance. Under the authority of 46 U.S.C. 53905, the United
States Maritime Administration (MARAD), at the request of Commander, Military Sealift
Command, may furnish the following war risk insurance coverage, which will be effective during
the vessels transit under this Contract in areas which are in war risk exclusion zones, or waters
described in the current Lloyds Joint War Committee Hull War, Strikes, Terrorism and Related
Perils Listed Areas , or otherwise excluded under the contractors commercial marine War Risk
trading warranties, and which are designated by notice from the Contracting Officer to the
contractor:
(1) War Risk Hull Coverage, insured at the hull value stated in Vessels current
commercial hull and increased-value policies effective on Charter Party date, a copy of
which current hull policies shall be furnished to Charterer;
(2) War Risk Protection and Indemnity coverage, insured at a value of either (i) 150% of
the hull value stated in Vessel's current commercial hull policy effective on Charter Party
date or (ii) $50,000,000, whichever is greater but in no event exceeding that amount of
commercial P&I cover which was in effect for the Vessel on Charter Party date;
(3) War Risk Blocking and Trapping Coverage;
(4) War Risk Second Seamans coverage, the principal sum of which shall be $200,000
per Master, Officer, or crew member (this is also the loss-of-life benefit);

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 74 of 127

(5) War Risk Loss-of-Hire coverage, if a commercial loss-of-hire policy was in effect on
the Vessel on Charter Party date. The sum insured by this policy, including the amount
of lost time that is covered, will be equivalent to the levels insured by the Vessel's
commercial policy. However, the amount insured by this policy will in no event exceed
the hire rate (effective under this Charter Party when the loss of time began), over a
maximum duration of 90 days lost. This maximum amount will be further subject to a
deductible equivalent to that in place under the Vessel's commercial policy.
H5.3 Government Indemnity. Under the authority of Public Law 85804 (72 Stat. 972, August
28, 1958) and Executive Order 10789, as amended by Executive Order 11610, the Secretary of
Defense or the Secretary of the Navy may authorize the Contracting Officer to indemnify the
contractor against loss from risks that would be covered by MARAD war risk coverage as set
forth in the paragraph entitled Government War Risk Insurance directly above.

Readiness shall be defined as the ability of a Vessel and Associated Equipment to perform the function
for which designed, built, or chartered, including the ability to deploy without delays, whether or not so
ordered to perform. If there is a degradation of this readiness, such that actual performance or condition
of the Vessel or Associated Equipment shows any failure to satisfy one or more of the Owner's
warranties or renders the Vessel in less than a fully efficient state, the hire will be proportionately
decreased so as to indemnify the Charterer to the extent of such failure, this Charter Party to remain
otherwise unaffected. Failure of the parties to agree upon the extent of the proportional decrease in hire
shall be a dispute under FAR clause 52.233-1, Disputes Alternate 1 incorporated herein by reference
in Section I. Nothing in this clause shall limit the rights of the Charterer to place the Vessel off-hire
pursuant to paragraph H-7 (Off-Hire).
H-7 Off-Hire (MSC 5252.246-9811 (AUG 2005)). In the event of the loss of time resulting from
deficiency and/or default of men including but not limited to misconduct, illness, injury, strikes, labor
disruptions, lockouts; deficiency of stores; fire; breakdown of or damages to hull, machinery, or
equipment; collision; stranding; grounding; detention by authorities; average accidents to Vessel or cargo
unless resulting from inherent vice, quality, or defect of the cargo; repairs; inspections; drydocking for
the purpose of examination or painting bottom; or deviation for the purpose of landing any ill or injured
person on board other than any passenger, supercargo, or military personnel who may be carried at
Charterer's request; or by any other cause whatsoever preventing the full working of the Vessel; the
payment of hire shall cease for all time lost until the Vessel is again ready and in a fully efficient state to
resume her service from a position not less favorable to the Charterer than that at which such loss of time
commenced. Should the Vessel deviate or put back during a voyage contrary to the orders or directions
of the Charterer for any reason, the hire is to be suspended from the time of her deviating or putting back
until she is again ready and in a fully efficient state to resume her service from a position not less
favorable to the Charterer than that at which such loss of time commenced. When the period of time lost
to the Charterer on any one occasion is less than four (4) consecutive hours, the hire shall not be reduced
for such period.
H-7.2 Costs for Owner. The cost of fuel consumed while the Vessel is off-hire, as well as all
port charges, pilotages, and other expenses incurred during such period and consequent upon the
putting in to any port or place other than that to which the Vessel is bound, shall be borne by the
Owner. All fuel used by the Vessel being driven into port or to shallow harbors or to rivers or

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 75 of 127

ports with bars, the delay of the Vessel and/or expenses resulting therefrom shall be for
Charterer's account.
H-7.2 Delays/Excessive Fuel Consumption. If upon any passage the Vessel (i) fails to make the
warranted speed in Box 57or if her warranted fuel consumption exceeds that in Boxes 59-63,
either or both of which are due to defect in or breakdown of any part of her hull, machinery, or
equipment; casualty; or inefficiency of Master, Officers, or crew or their failure to proceed with
utmost dispatch, and (ii) is delayed more than twelve (12) hours, the hire for the time lost and
any cost of extra fuel consumed, if any, shall be borne by the Owner. Any delay by ice shall be
for Charterer's account.

failure to satisfy one or more of such warranties or other contract requirements not due to the
fault of the Charterer, the hire may be equitably decreased, the Charter may be terminated, or the
Vessel may be placed off-hire, at Charterer's option so as to indemnify the Charterer to the extent
of such failure. However, in all cases the Owner shall bear the cost of excessive fuel
consumption resulting from the Owners breach of its fuel warranties. The foregoing remedies
shall not limit other recoveries available under law or within this charter.
H-10.7 Other Compliances. The contractor shall comply with all applicable Federal, State and

Page 78 of 127

port other than where Vessel loads, discharges or bunkers, payment of hire shall cease from the

divided equally between the Owner and the Charterer after deducting Master's, Officers' and
crew's shares, legal expense, vessel hire lost, if any, as a result of the salvage service, value of
fuel consumed, repairs of damage, if any, and other extraordinary loss or expense sustained as a
result of the salvage service. Charter hire shall continue to be paid by Charterer during

H-12.2 If requested by Charterer, Owner agrees to accept Navy salvage services. Such services
may be provided using Navy personnel and resources or Navy contracted resources.
H-12.3 In providing such services, the Navy, through Charterer, agrees to waive all claims for

and allowable expenses as established by the Navys Supervisor of Salvage. In no event
shall such amount exceed a maximum claim of $25,000 per day.
H-12.3.2 In those situations in which the Navy utilizes contracted resources to deliver
assistance, Owner shall be liable for the actual daily rate charged to the Navy by the
contractor(s).
H-12.4It is understood that this limited Supervisor of Salvage claim is asserted against the vessel
only, is solely for the vessel's account, and does not include any amounts for the salvage of the
Government's cargo. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this contract, this limited
Supervisor of Salvage claim IS NOT directly or by way of setoff chargeable in whole or in part
to the Government by way of general average or otherwise.
H-13 Risk of Loss.
H-13.1 Carriage of Goods by Sea Act (COGSA). Except as otherwise specified herein, the
Owner, Vessel, and Charterer in all matters arising under this Charter Party shall be entitled to
the like privileges, rights, and immunities (from the time the cargo is loaded until the time it is
discharged from the Vessel) as are contained in 46 U.S.C. App. 1300-1315. However, any
references in COGSA to (a) notices of loss or damage or (b) limitation-of-action periods shall not
apply to this Charter Party. For purposes of this Charter Party, the term "carrier" as used in that
Act shall mean "Owner" and the term "shipper" shall mean "Charterer."
H-13.2 Containers. For purposes of the application of the COGSA, goods shipped in containers
which are stowed on deck shall be deemed shipped under deck. With respect to the limitation of
liability provisions of COGSA, a container shall be considered a single package only if bulk
cargo is stored therein. For non-bulk cargo shipped in containers, the limitation of liability

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 79 of 127

provisions of COGSA shall apply to each package within a container or, for non-packaged cargo,
to each measurement ton of cargo within the container. See also paragraph H-40, Deck Cargo.
H-13.3 Package Limit. Except in the case of containerized cargo, for purposes of the application
of COGSA, in the case of any loss or damage to or in connection with goods exceeding in actual
value $500 per package, or in the case of goods not shipped in packages, per measurement ton,
the value of the goods shall be deemed to be $500 per package or per measurement ton, and the
Owner's liability, if any, shall be determined on the basis of the value of $500 per package or per
measurement ton, unless the nature of the goods and a valuation higher than $500 shall have been
declared in this Charter Party and, in such case, if the actual value of the goods per package or
per measurement ton shall exceed such declared value, the value shall nevertheless be deemed to
be the declared value. Should Charterer declare valuation higher than $500.00 per package or
per measurement ton, Charterer shall direct Owner to obtain increased cargo legal-liability
coverage on said higher-declaration cargo, with the expense of any additional premia and
incurred deductibles therefore for Charterer's account.
H-13.4 Other Statutes. The Owner and the Vessel shall have the benefit of all limitations of and
exemptions from liability accorded the Owner by any U.S. statute or rule of law for the time
being in force (except to the extent that contract terms entitle the Government to compensation
from the contractor for the contractor's failure to perform the requirements and obligations of this
Charter or to the extent such statute or rule of law is subordinate to any statutorily mandated
provision of this Charter Party by operation of law).
H-13.5 Fire. Neither the Owner nor any corporation owned by, subsidiary to, or associated or
affiliated with the Owner shall be liable to answer for or make good any loss or damage to the
cargo occurring at any time and even though before loading on or after discharge from the
Vessel, by reason or by means of any fire whatsoever, unless such fire shall be caused by its
design or neglect or unless such wholly owned, subsidiary, or associated corporation serves as
underwriter for the Owner and the policy between the Owner and underwriter provides coverage
for such liability.

Government designated representatives, pilots and Customs Officers when authorized by the
Charterer at rates specified in Section C-4.20.1. The Government particularly reserves the right
to put a representative onboard the Vessel, with the pilot, at the approach to a discharge port (or

debarkation of supercargoes or government representatives to the extent such loss or damage is
not payable under the Vessel's insurance policies. However, the Charterer shall not be liable for

H-34 MSC 5252.247-9818 GENERAL AVERAGE (AUG 2005). General average shall be adjusted,
stated and settled according to the York-Antwerp Rules 2004, and any subsequent modification thereof,
in the port of New York and according to the laws and usages of the port of New York. In such

exchange rate prevailing in the United States on the date made and allowances for damage to cargo
claimed in foreign currency shall be converted into United States Dollars at the exchange rate prevailing

H-35 MSC 5252.247-9832 LIMITATIONS (JAN 1999). The Owner shall have the benefit of all
limitations of and exemptions from liability accorded to the Owner or Chartered Owner of the Vessel by
any statute or rule of law for the time being in force except to the extent that contract terms entitle the
Government to compensation from the contractor for the contractor's failure to perform the requirements
and obligations of this Charter or such statute or rule of law limiting the contractor's liability is
subordinate to any statutorily mandated provision of this Charter Party by operation of law. Nothing in
this Charter Party shall operate to limit or deprive the Owner of any statutory exceptions or limitation of
liability (against parties other than the Charterer) on the theory of personal contract or otherwise.
H-36 ALTERATIONS. See Section C-4.14, Vessel Modifications.

H-38 MSC 5252.247-9845 MSC SHIP PHYSICAL SECURITY (JUN 1998). The Owner shall comply
with and implement the Ship Physical Security Requirements contained in COMSC Instruction 5530.3
(Series) "MILITARY SEALIFT COMMAND (MSC) SHIPBOARD ANTITERRORISM (AT)
PROGRAM," as revised, incorporated herein by reference with the same force and effect as if given in
full text. Upon request the Contracting Officer will make the full text available.
H-39 Communications Equipment.
H-39.1 In addition to equipment required by the USCG, Vessel shall be equipped upon
commencement of the Charter with the following minimum communications capability:
Internet access to include commercial e-mail capability.
H-39.2 If the Government decides to install a secure communications capability on the vessel
during the performance of this contract, the contractor shall ensure that the vessel is capable of
supporting secure (encrypted) communication equipment by complying with DOD and DON
guidance on proper access, handling and disposition of classified material. The Government will
supply the contractor with relevant publications providing guidance on physical security
requirements.
H-40 Deck Cargo. Should deck cargo be carried, it shall be carried at the Charterer's risk, excepting cargo
shipped in containers.
H-41 MSC 5252.203-9800 EMPLOYMENT OF NAVY PERSONNEL RESTRICTED (DEC 1988). In
the performance of this contract, the contractor will not use as a consultant or employ (on either a full or
part time basis) any active duty Navy personnel (civilian or military) without the prior approval of the
Contracting Officer. Such approval may be given only in circumstances where it is clear that no laws and
no DoD or Navy instructions, regulations, or policies are contravened and no appearance of a conflict of
interest will result.
H-42 RESERVED
H-43 Cancellation Fee. The contractor and Government agree the purpose of this clause is to induce the
contractor to offer to and to provide the required services when the contractor otherwise would not offer
to provide them because of the contractor's inability to recover its out-of-pocket costs in the event the
Government does not exercise an option to extend the term of the contract or terminates the contract for
the convenience of the Government.
In the event the Government does not exercise an option to extend the term of the contract or terminates
the contract for convenience, the contractor shall be entitled to not-to-exceed cancellation costs subject to
the following conditions and according to the schedule in Specialtime Box 22.
"Cancellation costs" means, and only means, costs specifically identified by the contractor in its proposal
and actually incurred by the contractor between contract award and vessel delivery to the Government
including, and limited to, the following categories of costs: costs incurred by the contractor for vessel
acquisition and reflagging costs. The Government will ensure it has sufficient working capital funds for
these cancellation costs.
When requesting payment of cancellation costs, the contractor shall provide evidence satisfactory to the

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 88 of 127

Contracting Officer verifying that contractor actually incurred the specified categories of cancellation
costs prior to delivery of the vessel to the Government and the amount thereof.
The cancellation costs must be reasonable, allowable, and allocable to the contract. The Government
will not be obligated in any event to reimburse the contractor for the specified categories of cancellation
costs in excess of the amount allotted in the schedule above for each contract period regardless of
anything to the contrary in the clause entitled "Termination for Convenience of the Government." The
contractor agrees that payment of the specified cancellation costs according to the schedule above for any
contract period fully compensates the contractor for the specified categories of cancellation costs. The
contractor waives any right it may have to claim any additional costs for the specified categories of
cancellation costs in the event such cancellation costs become payable, whether as a result of a
termination for convenience or as a result of the Government's failure to exercise an option. As used in
this clause, the total amount payable by the Government for the specified categories of cancellation costs
in the event the Government does not exercise an option or terminates the contract for convenience is as
set forth in the schedule above.
This clause does not limit the rights of the Government under the clauses entitled Default,
Termination for Convenience of the Government, Loss of Vessel, Inspection, Remedies, or
Excessive Time Lost. The clauses entitled Default, Loss of Vessel, Inspection, Remedies, and
Excessive Time Lost are not subject to cancellation costs.
Note: Pursuant to 10 USC2401, the Government is prohibited from entering into a vessel lease or
charter that contains a substantial termination liability. Offerors who submit substantial termination
liabilities will not be considered for award. A substantial termination liability is defined by the statute
as:
i. An agreement by the U.S., under the contract, to pay an amount greater than 25% of the value
of the vessel for the termination liability; or
ii. An agreement by the U.S., under the contract, to pay an amount greater than 50% of the value
of the vessel for the sum of the termination liability and the value of the total payments
attributable to capital-hire.
H-44 Reduced Operational Status (Layup) (MSC 5252.212-9805) (Aug 2005)
H-44.1 Charterers Option. The Charterer shall have the right to direct the Owner to place the

than ten (10) days, and (b) any ROS period which is initially estimated by the Charterer to extend
less than ten (10) days, regardless of the actual duration. The 10-day-and-longer rates stipulated
in Section B shall apply over the full term of any ROS period which is estimated to and does
extend ten (10) days or longer, without reference to any other ROS or FOS rates.
H-44.2 Notice to Owner. The Charterer shall give the Owner written or electronic notice or, in
the event notice is given by telephone, written or electronic confirmation of exercise of the right
specified in paragraph H-44.1 above, including with said notice an estimate of the duration of the
ROS period. Such notice shall also specify the time at which the period of ROS is to commence,
which time shall not be less than forty-eight (48) hours subsequent to the receipt of such notice

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 89 of 127

by the Owner or its representative. The Charterer shall give the Owner written or electronic
notice or, in the event notice is given by telephone, written or electronic confirmation of
termination of the period of ROS. Such notice shall specify the time at which such period shall
terminate, which time shall be at least seventy-two (72) hours (Saturdays, Sundays and holidays
excluded) subsequent to the receipt of said notice by the Owner or its representative; provided,
however, that by agreement between the Owner and the Charterer the Vessel may be returned to
full operational status (FOS) before the time specified in the notice of termination of the reduced
operational period.
H-45 Substitution. Subject to the Charterer's approval, the Owner may, at any time, propose a substitute
Vessel or Vessels. The nominated Vessel shall possess the same characteristics as the Vessel being
replaced. Approval of a vessel substitution is a matter within the Charterer's sole discretion.
H-46 Statutory Employee. Pursuant to La.R.S. 23:1061(A)(3). The Department of the Navy, by and
through Military Sealift Command, and contractor expressly provide and agree that the United States of
America and/or the Department of the Navy, by and through Military Sealift Command, is the statutory
employer of any of contractors employees and is entitled to the tort immunity provided in La.R.S.
23:1061 and La.R.S. 23:1032.
H-47 Order of Precedence. Any inconsistency in this solicitation or contract shall be resolved by giving
precedence in the following order:

(b) Representations and other instructions
(c) Contract clauses
(d) Solicitation provisions (prior to award)
(e) Other documents, exhibits, and attachments

criminal jurisdiction of the United States as required by the Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act of
2000, Pub. L. 106-523, 114 Stat. 2488, codified at 18 U.S.C. 3261 3267, as implemented by DoD
Instruction 5525.11, Criminal Jurisdiction over Civilians Employed by or accompanying the Armed

the agreement at paragraph (g)(1)(i)(C) of this clause, and, in the absence of a properly executed novation or changeof-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.
(2) 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 FAR Subpart 32.8, Assignment of

52.209-5

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 [ballot], have not [ballot], 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.

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 102 of 127
(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. 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.
(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. 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.
(iii) 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.
(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).
(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 nonresponsible.
(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.

evaluate warranted speed and fuel consumption figures. Such acceptability inspection shall not be
conducted for the purpose of determining whether one offerors proposed vessel is superior to another,

Section M - Evaluation Factors for Award
SECTION M

SECTION M
EVALUATION FACTORS FOR AWARD
M-1 BASIS FOR AWARD. The Government will evaluate offers on a Lowest Price Technically
Acceptable (LPTA) basis in accordance with FAR 15.101-2. The evaluation will be conducted in
accordance with Sections L and M of the RFP. The technical factor and past performance will be
evaluated on an acceptable/unacceptable basis. Technical tradeoffs will not be made and no additional
credit will be given for exceeding the minimum requirements of the solicitation. Award will be made to
the offeror with the lowest evaluated price proposal and acceptable past performance whose offer
conforms fully to the solicitation requirements and meets the acceptability standards for all non-price
factors. In order to be considered for award, an offer must receive an acceptable rating in every nonprice factor. An unacceptable rating in any non-price factor will render the entire offer unacceptable.
The Government reserves the right to accept any offer or portion of offer unless the proposal specifically
states otherwise. The Government intends to make an award for the charter of one vessel. Each vessel
proposed will be independently evaluated.
M-2 EVALUATION FACTORS.
(a) In selecting the lowest-priced, technically acceptable offer, the following factors will be
evaluated:
Factor 1: Technical
Factor 2: Past Performance
Factor 3: Price
(b) The paragraphs below provide expanded descriptions of the factors upon which proposals will be
evaluated and rated.
M-2.1 Technical.
All proposals will be evaluated based on the requirements listed in Section L-4.1.2(3). Technical
proposals will be evaluated based on acceptable/unacceptable criteria. In order to be determined
technically acceptable, and thus be eligible for award, vessels must meet or exceed the requirements for
the technical factor described in Section L-4.1.2(3).
Proposals rated unacceptable for any of the technical requirements listed in Section L-4.1.2(3) will be
rated overall unacceptable for the technical factor.
M-2.2 Past Performance.
(a) The past performance evaluation will assess the offerors probability of meeting the solicitation
requirements. To develop an overall rating, the Governments evaluation will take into account
relevant information submitted by each offeror as part of its proposal and the Governments
assessment and evaluation of other sources of information. Other sources of information for past
performance may include, but are not limited to, Past Performance Information Retrieval System

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 125 of 127

(PPIRS) reports, the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS),
Electronic Subcontract Report System (ESRS), other databases, questionnaires and interviews.
(b) The Government will consider the recency and relevancy of past performance information
compared to the requirements detailed in the PWS, the source of the information, the context of
the data and general trends in the offerors performance and any associated risk.
(c) The Government will consider the extent of the offerors ability to perform a previous contract
successfully in the areas of; (a) quality of product or services; (b) timeliness or scheduling of
supplies/deliveries; (c) business relations/customer satisfaction; (d) key personnel and staffing
(including subcontractors); and (e) cost controls (COST CONTRACTS ONLY).
(d) The Government may consider the company itself, predecessor companies, key personnel who
have relevant experience and subcontractors who will perform major or critical aspects of the
requirement.
(e) For all offerors, the Government will consider historical compliance with the requirements of
FAR Part 52.219-8 (Utilization of Small Business Concerns). In addition, for large businesses,
the Government will consider historical compliance with the requirements of FAR Part 52.219-9
(Small Business Subcontracting Plan) and DFARS 252.219-7003 (Small Business Subcontracting
Plan, DOD Requirements).
(f) The Government reserves the right to consider Past Performance Questionnaires received after the
due date for receipt of proposals. The Government reserves the right to contact references for
verification or additional information and the right to consider other relevant past performance
information. The Government may call customers, whether or not provided by the offeror, to
inquire about the offerors past performance. The Government does not assume the duty to
search for data to cure the problems it finds with the information provided by the offeror. The
burden of providing thorough and complete past performance information remains with the
offeror.
(g)In accordance with FAR 15.305(a) (2) (iv), an offeror without a record of relevant past
performance or for whom information on past performance is not available, will not be evaluated
favorably or unfavorably on past performance, and will be given a rating of acceptable on the
past performance evaluation factor.
M-2.3 Price.
M-2.3.1 General. Price analysis techniques will be used to determine price reasonableness. Materially
unbalanced offers will not be considered for award.
M-2.3.2 Evaluated Price.
(a) The total evaluated price will equal the sum of the total dollar amounts offered for program
management support of ramp-up period, vessel modifications, charter hire and fuel for the firm
and option time periods, and any other costs (excluding ROS rates and cancellation fees) set
forth in the offer. For evaluation purposes, any additional costs (excluding ROS rates and
cancellation fees) not already incorporated in the program management support of the ramp-up
period, vessel modifications, or charter hire will be incorporated as part of the time charter firm

N00033-13-R-2015
Page 126 of 127

period price. The total Program Management Support of Ramp-Up Period will equal the offered
daily rate multiplied by the number of days in the ramp-up period portion of the firm period
(approximately 204). The total Charter Hire will equal the offered daily rate multiplied by the
number of days in the period (approximately 161 in the charter portion of the firm period, 365 in
option periods 1, 3 and 4, and 366 in option period 2). The proposed price must be determined to
be fair and reasonable prior to award.
(b) For evaluation purposes, fuel cost will be based upon the fuel consumption figures provided in
each proposal, calculated according to the operational tempo of the mission. Fuel consumption
will be calculated using the operational tempo in the table below. Evaluated fuel consumption
will be added to the evaluated price for each contract period.

the above fuels will be used for evaluation purposes. Offerors shall propose fuels from the above
list (whichever types are appropriate for their vessel) and warrant the fuel consumption for each
type of fuel chosen. When multiple fuels are proposed, the fuel with the lowest per unit cost will
be used for evaluation purposes.
M-2.3.3 Other Rates and Cancellation Fee. While not evaluated for contract award, ROS rates and
cancellation fees submitted will be analyzed for price reasonableness.
