(3)  Provide a copy of the notification to the Contracting Officer.

           

  (b)  After receipt of a notification submitted in accordance with paragraph (a) of this clause, the DoD Program Manager will—

 

            (1)  Conduct a security assessment to determine if and by what means access may be granted to the IAEA; or

 

            (2)  Provide written justification to the component or agency treaty office for a national security exclusion, in accordance with DoD Instruction 2060.03, Application of the National Security Exclusion to the Agreements Between the United States of America and the International Atomic Energy Agency for the Application of Safeguards in the United States of America.  DoD will notify the Contractor if a national security exclusion is applied at the Contractor’s location to prohibit access by the IAEA.

  (e)  If DoD applies a national security exclusion, the Contractor shall not grant access to IAEA inspectors.

 

  (f)  If DoD does not apply a national security exclusion, the Contractor shall apply managed access to prevent disclosure of program activities, locations, or information in the U.S. declaration.

 

  (g)  The Contractor shall not delay submission of any reports required by the Department of Commerce or the Nuclear Regulatory Commission while awaiting a DoD response to a notification provided in accordance with this clause.

252.204-7011  Alternative Line Item Structure.

As prescribed in 204.7109(b), insert the following provision:

 

ALTERNATIVE LINE ITEM STRUCTURE (SEP 2011)

 

      (a)  Line items are the basic structural elements in a solicitation or contract that provide for the organization of contract requirements to facilitate pricing, delivery, inspection, acceptance and payment. Line items are organized into contract line items, subline items, and exhibit line items. Separate line items should be established to account for separate pricing, identification (see section 211.274 of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement), deliveries, or funding. The Government recognizes that the line item structure in this solicitation may not conform to every offeror’s practices. Failure to correct these issues can result in difficulties in accounting for deliveries and processing payments. Therefore, offerors are invited to propose an alternative line item structure for items on which bids, proposals, or quotes are requested in this solicitation to ensure that the resulting contract structure is economically and administratively advantageous to the Government and the Contractor.

 

      (b)  If an alternative line item structure is proposed, the structure must be consistent with subpart 204.71 of the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement and PGI 204.71 (DFARS/PGI view). A sample line item structure and a proposed alternative structure are as follows:
