Own­er fur­ther agrees to hold Con­sul­tant harm­less for errors or omis­sions in doc­u­ments that are incom­plete as a result of the ter­mi­na­tion action under this clause.

TER­MI­NA­TION FOR DEFAULT (PRO­FES­SION­AL SERVICES)

Either par­ty may ter­mi­nate this Agree­ment for cause if the oth­er par­ty fails to ful­fill its oblig­a­tions that are essen­tial to the com­ple­tion of the work per the terms and con­di­tions of the Agree­ment. The par­ty ini­ti­at­ing the ter­mi­na­tion action must allow the breach­ing par­ty an oppor­tu­ni­ty to dis­pute or cure the breach.

The ter­mi­nat­ing par­ty must pro­vide the breach­ing par­ty [7] days advance writ­ten notice of its intent to ter­mi­nate the Agree­ment. The notice must spec­i­fy the nature and extent of the breach, the con­di­tions nec­es­sary to cure the breach, and the effec­tive date of the ter­mi­na­tion action. The rights and reme­dies in this clause are in addi­tion to any oth­er rights and reme­dies pro­vid­ed by law or under this agreement.

a) Ter­mi­na­tion by Own­er: The Own­er may ter­mi­nate this Agree­ment in whole or in part, for the fail­ure of the Con­sul­tant to:

1. Per­form the ser­vices with­in the time spec­i­fied in this con­tract or by Own­er approved extension;

2. Make ade­quate progress so as to endan­ger sat­is­fac­to­ry per­for­mance of the Project; or

3. Ful­fill the oblig­a­tions of the Agree­ment that are essen­tial to the com­ple­tion of the Project.

Upon receipt of the notice of ter­mi­na­tion, the Con­sul­tant must imme­di­ate­ly dis­con­tin­ue all ser­vices affect­ed unless the notice directs oth­er­wise. Upon ter­mi­na­tion of the Agree­ment, the Con­sul­tant must deliv­er to the Own­er all data, sur­veys, mod­els, draw­ings, spec­i­fi­ca­tions, reports, maps, pho­tographs, esti­mates, sum­maries, and oth­er doc­u­ments and mate­ri­als pre­pared by the Engi­neer under this con­tract, whether com­plete or par­tial­ly complete.

Own­er agrees to make just and equi­table com­pen­sa­tion to the Con­sul­tant for sat­is­fac­to­ry work com­plet­ed up through the date the Con­sul­tant receives the ter­mi­na­tion notice. Com­pen­sa­tion will not include antic­i­pat­ed prof­it on non-per­formed services.

Own­er fur­ther agrees to hold Con­sul­tant harm­less for errors or omis­sions in doc­u­ments that are incom­plete as a result of the ter­mi­na­tion action under this clause.

If, after final­iza­tion of the ter­mi­na­tion action, the Own­er deter­mines the Con­sul­tant was not in default of the Agree­ment, the rights and oblig­a­tions of the par­ties shall be the same as if the Own­er issued the ter­mi­na­tion for the con­ve­nience of the Owner.

b) Ter­mi­na­tion by Con­sul­tant: The Con­sul­tant may ter­mi­nate this Agree­ment in whole or in part, if the Owner:

1. Defaults on its oblig­a­tions under this Agreement;

2. Fails to make pay­ment to the Con­sul­tant in accor­dance with the terms of this Agreement;

3. Sus­pends the Project for more than [180] days due to rea­sons beyond the con­trol of the Consultant.

Upon receipt of a notice of ter­mi­na­tion from the Con­sul­tant, Own­er agrees to coop­er­ate with Con­sul­tant for the pur­pose of ter­mi­nat­ing the agree­ment or por­tion there­of, by mutu­al con­sent. If Own­er and Con­sul­tant can­not reach mutu­al agree­ment on the ter­mi­na­tion set­tle­ment, the Con­sul­tant may, with­out prej­u­dice to any rights and reme­dies it may have, pro­ceed with ter­mi­nat­ing all or parts of this Agree­ment based upon the Owner’s breach of the contract.

In the event of ter­mi­na­tion due to Own­er breach, the Engi­neer is enti­tled to invoice Own­er and to receive full pay­ment for all ser­vices per­formed or fur­nished in accor­dance with this Agree­ment and all jus­ti­fied reim­bursable expens­es incurred by the Con­sul­tant through the effec­tive date of ter­mi­na­tion action. Own­er agrees to hold Con­sul­tant harm­less for errors or omis­sions in doc­u­ments that are incom­plete as a result of the ter­mi­na­tion action under this clause.

17. TRADE RESTRICTION.

(Ref­er­ence: 49 CFR part 30)

By sub­mis­sion of an offer, the Offer­or cer­ti­fies that with respect to this solic­i­ta­tion and any resul­tant con­tract, the Offeror –

1) is not owned or con­trolled by one or more cit­i­zens of a for­eign coun­try includ­ed in the list of coun­tries that dis­crim­i­nate against U.S. firms as pub­lished by the Office of the Unit­ed States Trade Rep­re­sen­ta­tive (USTR);

2) has not know­ing­ly entered into any con­tract or sub­con­tract for this project with a per­son that is a cit­i­zen or nation­al of a for­eign coun­try includ­ed on the list of coun­tries that dis­crim­i­nate against U.S. firms as pub­lished by the USTR; and

3) has not entered into any sub­con­tract for any prod­uct to be used on the Fed­er­al project that is pro­duced in a for­eign coun­try includ­ed on the list of coun­tries that dis­crim­i­nate against U.S. firms pub­lished by the USTR.

This cer­ti­fi­ca­tion con­cerns a mat­ter with­in the juris­dic­tion of an agency of the Unit­ed States of Amer­i­ca and the mak­ing of a false, fic­ti­tious, or fraud­u­lent cer­ti­fi­ca­tion may ren­der the mak­er sub­ject to pros­e­cu­tion under Title 18 USC Sec­tion 1001.

The Offeror/​Contractor must pro­vide imme­di­ate writ­ten notice to the Own­er if the Offeror/​Contractor learns that its cer­ti­fi­ca­tion or that of a sub­con­trac­tor was erro­neous when sub­mit­ted or has become erro­neous by rea­son of changed cir­cum­stances. The Con­trac­tor must require sub­con­trac­tors pro­vide imme­di­ate writ­ten notice to the Con­trac­tor if at any time it learns that its cer­ti­fi­ca­tion was erro­neous by rea­son of changed circumstances.

Unless the restric­tions of this clause are waived by the Sec­re­tary of Trans­porta­tion in accor­dance with 49 CFR 30.17, no con­tract shall be award­ed to an Offer­or or subcontractor:

1) who is owned or con­trolled by one or more cit­i­zens or nation­als of a for­eign coun­try includ­ed on the list of coun­tries that dis­crim­i­nate against U.S. firms pub­lished by the USTR or

2) whose sub­con­trac­tors are owned or con­trolled by one or more cit­i­zens or nation­als of a for­eign coun­try on such USTR list or

3) who incor­po­rates in the pub­lic works project any prod­uct of a for­eign coun­try on such USTR list.

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 this pro­vi­sion. The knowl­edge and infor­ma­tion of a con­trac­tor is not required to exceed that which is nor­mal­ly pos­sessed by a pru­dent per­son in the ordi­nary course of busi­ness dealings.

The Offer­or agrees that, if award­ed a con­tract result­ing from this solic­i­ta­tion, it will incor­po­rate this pro­vi­sion for cer­ti­fi­ca­tion with­out mod­i­fi­ca­tion in all low­er tier sub­con­tracts. The Con­trac­tor may rely on the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion of a prospec­tive sub­con­trac­tor that it is not a firm from a for­eign coun­try includ­ed on the list of coun­tries that dis­crim­i­nate against U.S. firms as pub­lished by USTR, unless the Offer­or has knowl­edge that the cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is erroneous.

This cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is a mate­r­i­al rep­re­sen­ta­tion of fact upon which reliance was placed when mak­ing an award. If it is lat­er deter­mined that the Con­trac­tor or sub­con­trac­tor know­ing­ly ren­dered an erro­neous cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, the Fed­er­al Avi­a­tion Admin­is­tra­tion (FAA) may direct through the Own­er can­cel­la­tion of the con­tract or sub­con­tract for default at no cost to the Own­er or the FAA.

18. VETERAN’S PREFERENCE

(Ref­er­ence 49 USC § 47112©)

In the employ­ment of labor (exclud­ing exec­u­tive, admin­is­tra­tive, and super­vi­so­ry posi­tions), the Con­trac­tor and all sub-tier con­trac­tors must give pref­er­ence to cov­ered vet­er­ans as defined with­in Title 49 Unit­ed States Code Sec­tion 47112. Cov­ered vet­er­ans include Viet­nam-era vet­er­ans, Per­sian Gulf vet­er­ans, Afghanistan-Iraq war vet­er­ans, dis­abled vet­er­ans, and small busi­ness con­cerns (as defined by 15 USC 632) owned and con­trolled by dis­abled vet­er­ans. This pref­er­ence only applies when there are cov­ered vet­er­ans read­i­ly avail­able and qual­i­fied to per­form the work to which the employ­ment relates.
