As prescribed in 204.1104, substitute the following paragraph (a) for paragraph (a) of the clause at FAR 52.204-7:


      (a)  Definitions.  As used in this clause--


“Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database” means the primary Government repository for contractor information required for the conduct of business with the Government.


“Commercial and Government Entity (CAGE) code” means—


              (1)  A code assigned by the Defense Logistics Information Service (DLIS) to identify a commercial or Government entity; or


              (2)  A code assigned by a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization that DLIS records and maintains in the CAGE master file.  This type of code is known as an “NCAGE code.”


“Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number” means the 9-digit number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet, Inc. (D&B) to identify unique business entities.


“Data Universal Numbering System +4 (DUNS+4) number” means the DUNS number assigned by D&B plus a 4-character suffix that may be assigned by a business concern.  (D&B has no affiliation with this 4-character suffix.)  This 4-character suffix may be assigned at the discretion of the business concern to establish additional CCR records for identifying alternative Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) accounts (see Subpart 32.11 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation) for the same parent concern.


“Registered in the CCR database” means that—


      (1)  The Contractor has entered all mandatory information, including the DUNS number or the DUNS+4 number, into the CCR database;


      (2)  The Contractor’s CAGE code is in the CCR database; and


      (3)  The Government has validated all mandatory data fields and has marked the records “Active.”

      (a)  Contractor employees cleared for access to Top Secret (TS), Special Access Program (SAP), or Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) shall attest orally that they will conform to the conditions and responsibilities imposed by law or regulation on those granted access.  Reading aloud the first paragraph of Standard Form 312, Classified Information Nondisclosure Agreement, in the presence of a person designated by the Contractor for this purpose, and a witness, will satisfy this requirement.  Contractor employees currently cleared for access to TS, SAP, or SCI may attest orally to their security responsibilities when being briefed into a new program or during their annual refresher briefing.  There is no requirement to retain a separate record of the oral attestation.


      (b)  If an employee refuses to attest orally to security responsibilities, the Contractor shall deny the employee access to classified information and shall submit a report to the Contractor’s security activity.


(End of clause)
