1.3Information Regarding FPS

FPS is the security and law enforcement component of the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement. FPS is responsible for protecting federally owned or leased facilities. FPS ‘s mission is to provide a safe environment in which Federal agencies conduct their business without fear of violence, crime or disorder.

Contract security guards have a crucial and highly visible role in support of FPS’s mission. They are usually the first (and sometimes only) contact visitors have with the Federal community, and they are usually the first line of defense in a federally controlled facility. Visitors and federal employees perceive the contract Security Guards to be an integral part of the FPS mission. It is crucial that the Vendor ensure that their employees realize the importance of their role, and perform their duties courteously and professionally at all times.

2Contract Transition

2.1Transition Phase –In

A smooth and orderly transition between the Vendor and the predecessor Vendor is necessary to assure minimum disruption to vital Vendor services and Government activities.

The Vendor may notify the predecessor Vendor’s employees that the Vendor will be assuming services upon the BPA start date and may distribute business cards, employment applications, brochures, and other company information to the predecessor Vendor’s employees while they are on duty, provided that there is no interference with the Contract employee’s assigned duties (e.g., during “off hours” or during relief or lunch breaks). However, the Vendor shall not interview, recruit, schedule interviews, or conduct extensive discussions with the predecessor Vendor’s employees while they are on duty.

The Vendor shall provide a transition plan with 5 working days after BPA award. The transition plan shall include:

Prior to BPA expiration and after a follow-on BPA is awarded; the Vendor shall exercise its best efforts and cooperation to effect an orderly and efficient transition to a successor vendor.

After a new BPA is awarded, the vendor shall disclose necessary personnel records sufficient to allow the successor vendor to conduct interviews for possible transition (if the vendor is not awarded the successor BPA). These records shall be provided to the successor at least 45 days prior to date of BPA expiration. If any incumbent employees are selected by the successor and are agreeable to the change, the incumbent vendor should cooperate to grant the employees release at a mutually agreed date.

As part of the closeout process, the vendor shall, within 30 days of the final day of performance, turn over all incumbent officer training, medical, suitability and security records to the COTR / Inspector as stated in paragraph 19A, 1 thru 17.

Outdoor posts may require the individual to withstand extreme heat, humidity, cold, and/or severe weather (e.g., snow, sleet, rain, hail, wind) for up to four hours without shelter. Many posts have no chair/seating available; thus, the individual must be able to stand for up to four consecutive hours.

Frequent contact with the general public, law enforcement, and dispatch center, requiring the ability to speak clearly and distinctly and remain calm in stressful situations (e.g., confrontations with angry, distraught, disturbed, or violent persons).

following cutoff levels (nanogram per milliliter, ng/ mL):

Substance

Cutoff Level (ng/mL)

Marijuana metabolites

50

Cocaine metabolites

300

Opiate metabolites

2,000

Phencyclidine

25

Amphetamines

1,000

The Vendor will perform random drug screening of 5% of the guard force assigned to this BPA over a 12- month period. Contract Security Guards must resubmit to a urine drug screening upon renewal of physical forms every three years.

Drug screening methodology shall conform to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) “Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs.” These guidelines can be accessed via the Internet at: www.health.org/GDLNS-94.htm or at: http://wmcare.samhsa.gov.1 The Vendor is strongly urged to use one of the laboratories listed on SAMHSA’s “Current List of Laboratories Which Meet Minimum Standards To Engage in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies,” which is accessible via the Internet at: www.health.org/labs/index.htm or at: http://wmcare.samhsa.gov;. This list is updated on a monthly basis. If the Vendor chooses to use a laboratory not shown on SAMHSA’s current list, the Vendor must verify whether the laboratory’s methodology conforms to SAMHSA’s guidelines prior to utilizing that laboratory to perform drug screenings.

Other drug testing methods (hair, sweat patch, etc.) are commercially available but are not acceptable for the purposes of this BPA, due to widely varying standards of testing and laboratory reliability results. However, if SAMHSA does issue guidelines on alternative drug screening methods, the BPA may be modified to permit the use of those methods.

The presence of a positive reading for any of the above substances over the designated cutoff level for that substance shall automatically disqualify an applicant from working under this or any other FPS security guard services contract. Since most drugs are metabolized within a short period of time (from several hours to several days), the Vendor shall not permit any applicant to take multiple tests in order to receive an acceptable reading.

The Vendor is responsible for all costs associated with obtaining the medical evaluation and drug screening for each Contract employee. All costs must be factored into the offering prices.

12.5Government Requested Screening

1The cutoff level for Opiate metabolites listed in the internet-ready guidelines is 300; however, that number has been revised by SAMHSA and the new cutoff level is shown in paragraph above.

The CO or COTR shall have the express right to request targeted urine drug screenings where there is a reasonable belief by the Government that the Contract employee(s) may be under the influence of or using illegal substances. Targeted screenings shall be conducted in a similar fashion to random screenings, with the exception that the CO will advise the CM in writing that s/he requests a drug screening of a specific security guard. Once the written request is received, the CM shall arrange for the test to be conducted as soon as possible, but not later than three working days. The Vendor shall pay the Contract employee the normal hourly rate/salary for all time associated with taking the screening. Each screening shall follow the guidelines described in paragraph 15.4 above.

Contract employees who undergo targeted urine drug screenings may continue working under the BPA until the results have been provided to the Vendor. In the event that the results of any urine drug screening are negative, the Government shall bear the expense of the screening. This does not apply to the pre-employment urine drug screening. In the event that the results are positive, the Vendor shall immediately remove the Contract employee(s) with a positive reading from the BPA and immediately inform the COTR and CO of the result and the employee’s removal from the BPA. Additionally, the Vendor shall bear all the expenses relating to the test for the employee(s) with the positive reading.

Any Contract employee who undergoes either a random or targeted urine drug screening and tests positive for any of the substances shown above shall be permanently disqualified from working under this or any other FPS security guard services BPA. Since most drugs are metabolized within a short period, the affected Contract employee shall not be authorized to take additional tests to achieve an acceptable reading.

13Conduct of Vendor Personnel

A.In accordance with the SGIM, the Vendor shall be responsible for maintaining

satisfactory standards of employee competency, conduct, appearance, and integrity, and shall be responsible for taking such disciplinary action with respect to his employees as may be necessary.

The vendor should follow the procedures listed below to obtain an FPS certification card, ICE form 78-3527 for each vendor’s employee:

Conduct an initial employment screening to determine whether the prospective employee meets the vendor’s specific hiring requirements and the BPA eligibility requirements, including medical and drug testing (see Section 15 above);

Submit the suitability package to the COTR and await the results of the adjudication. This process may take approximately one to three months if all forms are legible and complete. However, preliminary suitability is usually determined within a week of the submission of the paperwork. The vendor will be notified whenever there is an instance where there is a preliminary unfavorable adjudication decision so that the vendor can determine how to proceed with the employee’s training, testing, etc.

Schedule required Government-provided training and testing/qualifying with FPS and schedule/conduct all other vendor-provided training requirements; 2 this does not include the FPS written exam.

After the Vendor employee receives favorable suitability adjudication results and the employee successfully completes the training and passes the required examination(s), the vendor shall submit the following information to the COTR for an FPS certification card, ICE form 78-3527:

Certification. A certification, signed by the Contract Manager, that the employee has met all the requirements set forth in Section C and that all pertinent documents are on file at the vendor’s facility. (See Exhibit 6)

Photographs. Two color photographs, 1” x 1,” no more than one year old, of the guard’s head and upper shoulders; and

Lautenberg Amendment Statement. Armed guards must submit a signed and dated “Domestic Violence” certification that satisfies the legal requirements of the Lautenberg Amendment, 18 U.S.C. § 922(g)(8) and (9). Each guard’s certification is valid for one

(1)year. The vendor shall maintain a file of its guards’ certifications and provide the COTR a signed statement certifying compliance with this requirement. If at any time a guard has a disqualifying event under Lautenberg, the Vendor shall notify the COTR and immediately remove the guard from work under the BPA that may require use of a firearm. The vendor shall submit a new certification to the COTR stating that all its guards are in compliance with the Lautenberg Amendment annually.

2The Vendor may proceed with Vendor-provided training while awaiting results of the suitability adjudication process.

FPS will type on the certification form the date of issuance, qualifications, and expiration date or “TOC” to designate expiration upon completion of the term of the BPA. FPS will then laminate the completed form and issue it to the vendor.

No guard or supervisor shall be permitted to work under this BPA without a valid certification card, ICE form 78-3527.

The certification card, ICE form 78-3527, shall be worn on the outermost garment of the guard's uniform.

The Vendor is responsible for the employees having all required certification credentials in their possession at all times while on the protected premises. This includes not only the FPS certification card, ICE form 78-3527, but also a valid CPR/First Aid card, state certification (if required) and a valid firearms permit.

The vendor must return employees’ certification card, ICE form 78-3527 to FPS within five (5) workdays upon the termination of the guard's employment or the guard's removal from the BPA. At the end of the BPA period, the vendor must return to FPS all blank cards and all completed cards for guards who will not continue to work under FPS contracts. Possession of an FPS certification card, ICE form 78-3527 does not waive any other contract requirement.

H.Because the Certification card, ICE form 78-3527 does not expire when individual certification elements expire, the vendor is responsible for continually maintaining validity of each element of the vendor employee’s certification status (i.e., suitability determination, medical examination, firearms re-qualification, CPR/First Aid certification). See Exhibit 11.

I.The CO shall have the express authority to demand return of the FPS Certification card, ICE form 78-3527 for any vendor employee who does not maintain compliance with the BPA qualification and certification standards, and the CO shall have the express authority to prohibit that employee from performing under the PA until such time as s/he comes into full compliance with all qualification/certification criteria.

complying with the security requirements of this BPA, the vendor will be informed in writing by the Contracting Officer of the proper action to be taken in order to effect compliance with such requirements.

17.3Suitability Determination / Entry on Duty Decision

DHS shall have and exercise full control over granting, denying, withholding or terminating unescorted access to a Government facility and or sensitive Government information access for vendor employees, based upon the results of a background investigation. DHS may, as it deems appropriate, authorize and make favorable entry on duty (EOD) decision based on preliminary security checks. The favorable EOD decision would allow the employees to commence work temporarily prior to the completion of the full investigation. The granting of a favorable EOD decision shall not be considered as assurance that a full employment suitability authorization will follow as a result thereof. The granting of a favorable EOD decision or a full employment suitability determination shall in no way prevent, preclude, or bar the withdrawal or termination of any such access by DHS, at any time during the term of the BPA. No employee of the vendor shall be allowed unescorted access to a Government facility without a favorable EOD decision or suitability determination by the DHS Security Office. Vendor employees assigned to the BPA not needing access to sensitive DHS information or recurring access to DHS’ facilities will not be subject to security suitability screening.

Vendor employees awaiting an EOD decision may begin work on the BPA provided they do not access sensitive Government information. Limited access to Government buildings is allowable prior to the EOD decision if a Government employee escorts the vendor’s employee. This limited access is to allow vendors to attend briefings, non- recurring meetings and begin transition work. The EOD determination does not substitute for the required background investigation.

17.4Suitability Adjudication

After award of the BPA and prior to any vendor employees being permitted to work under the BPA, the vendor is responsible for ensuring that the vendor employees receive formal suitability adjudication by FPS. All vendor employees shall receive formal suitability adjudication by FPS, including the CM, Supervisors, Quality Assurance personnel and all other company officers that visit the work sites. Vendor suitability determinations are to be made in accordance with the criteria outlined in 5 CFR 731.202.

Once a prospective vendor employee has applied for a position and has been favorably evaluated by the vendor (i.e., meets the minimum qualification requirements cited in this Statement of Work and otherwise meets the vendor’s hiring criteria), the vendor shall submit to the COTR the following Government furnished forms for each vendor employee:

Vendors are required to use local police& state police offices to obtain readable fingerprints on the fingerprint cards. Upon receipt of the completed, legible forms, FPS will submit the fingerprints for review by the FBI. FPS will use the information provided by the vendor and the FBI to make a determination regarding the security guard’s suitability to work under an FPS BPA. If the forms are complete and legible, the entire evaluation process will take from one (1) week to several months, depending on current processing times. For planning purposes, the vendor should always assume that the standard processing time is one (1) month and should plan paperwork submissions accordingly. Standard Form 85P, “Questionnaire for Public Trust Positions” Form will be submitted via OPM “e-QIP” (electronic Questionnaires for Investigation Processing)”.

Illegible or incomplete forms submitted by the vendor will be returned and will result in delays in the adjudication process. Therefore, the Vendor must ensure that all forms submitted to FPS are complete, legible, and accurate. FPS shall not be responsible for any delays that occur due to the vendor’s failure to submit complete, accurate, and legible forms to FPS.

All federal agencies are required to implement Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) and must follow the minimum background investigation requirements of National Agency Check with Written Inquiries (NACI) or other suitability or national security investigation prior to credential issuance.

A contractor on whom unfavorable or derogatory information has been uncovered must be presented with the information and offered an opportunity to refute, explain, clarify, or mitigate the information in question.

assigned to work under the BPA, and the vendor shall in turn immediately remove the affected employee from the BPA. The security guard or the vendor may appeal the suitability determination to the CO. However, in such cases the vendor shall proceed with the hiring process at their own risk until the final determination of the security guard’s suitability has been accomplished. Under no circumstances shall a vendor employee who has received a notice of unfavorable (unsuitable) adjudication work under this or any FPS security guard service contract/BPA. This requirement also applies to vendor employees whose unfavorable adjudication is pending appeal. Disqualifying information includes but is not limited to the following:

Conviction of a felony, a crime of violence, or a serious misdemeanor;

Possessing a record of arrests for continuing offenses;

Falsification of information entered on suitability background investigation forms.

Once a favorable adjudication has been made by FPS, the security guard is suitable to work under the BPA for five (5) years (if nothing occurs within the 5-year period that would render the security guard unsuitable for continuing performance under the BPA). The vendor shall immediately notify the COTR and the CO in writing of any circumstances that arise which could possibly affect any Contract employee’s suitability status (e.g., arrests, convictions, and/or termination of employment by the vendor for cause, such as misconduct or neglect of duty). The vendor is responsible for renewing the security guard’s suitability clearance prior to its expiration. Any security guard who continues to work under the BPA after his/her suitability clearance has expired shall be removed from the BPA until a new favorable suitability determination is made. The vendor should make every effort to submit a new suitability package to FPS at least 30 days prior to the current suitability expiration date.

Any investigation conducted by or for another federal agency on a vendor that is of the same or higher type and scope as the one required for the position is sufficient to meet the investigation requirements provided it was conducted within the past five years.

Any investigation conducted by or for another federal agency on a vendor whose scope is less than that required for the position can be upgraded as provided for by OPM to meet the investigation requirements of the position if it was conducted within the past five years.

For employees cleared through this process while employed under a predecessor contract or BPA (providing the same services), the suitability determination made under the previous contract or BPA will carry over to the new contract. However, the vendor will be required to submit new suitability applications once the security guards’ current suitability clearances expire.

Vendors who have been investigated and approved by Components prior to the issuance of DHS-MD 11055, “Suitability Screening Requirements for Vendors” to work

on unclassified contracts are eligible to remain on the BPA even though they may not have the investigation commensurate with the risk level indicated in Appendix 1. Such vendors cannot perform work under a different contract or at a different risk level until the investigative requirements in Appendix 1 are met.

Lawful Permanent Residents are not eligible (1) to transfer between contracts; (2) for an upgrade to another position; or (3) to remain on a contract after a re-compete and award.

FPS shall have and exercise full and complete control over granting, denying, withholding, or terminating suitability clearances for employees. FPS may, as it deems appropriate, authorize and grant temporary clearances to employees of the vendor. However, issuance of a temporary clearance to any such employee shall not be considered as assurance that full clearance will be granted as a result or condition thereof, and the granting of either temporary or full clearance shall in no way prevent, preclude, or bar the later withdrawal or termination of any such clearance by the Government.

18 Security Clearance Requirements

18.1Background Investigations

In addition to meeting the FPS background suitability check described in Section C, additional security clearances may be required by the BPA and call(s). These clearances will be provided by the Department of Defense Security Service (DSS), the Department of Energy (DOE), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), or other agency, as appropriate refer to Exhibit 6C for further information as to whether this Contract will require such clearances). Where such clearances are required, employees shall be subject to a security investigation by the Government prior to being allowed to work at the site. This requirement may also pertain to officers of the firm, who for any reason may visit the work site(s) during the term of the BPA. Employees may not work at the site until the Vendor receives a DD Form 560 (Letter of Consent), for the individual employee from DSS, or receives a final clearance from DOE, NRC, or other agency.

The Government shall notify the vendor of the required security classification of this BPA and the elements thereof, and of any subsequent revisions in such security classifications, by use of Security Requirements Checklist (DD Form 254), or other written notification.

In all areas requiring a DOD, DOE, NRC, or other agency security clearance, the vendor shall comply with the provisions of the most currently available National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM). This publication may be obtained online at www.dss.mil or from the Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing Office, Mail Stop SSOP, Washington, DC 20402-9238 (ISBN: 0-16-045560-X). Application forms required for DOD personnel security clearances shall be obtained

from Defense Security Service (DSS) at www.dss.mil; for DOE clearances at www.doe.gov; and for NRC at www.nrc.gov. Each designated employee must complete all applicable forms. The Vendor shall notify the COTR in writing within five calendar days of receipt of authorization for employees to be assigned to classified areas. Exhibit 6C, Security Clearance Requirements. The Government will provide the vendor with the appropriate personnel security questionnaire and fingerprint forms that are to be completed for each vendor security guard employee performing under this BPA, as well as the firm employees, who may, in the performance of this BPA, visit the work site.

A security clearance determination of whether an individual should be eligible for access to classified information is a process separate and distinct from the suitability determination and is conducted in accordance with DHS MD 11035, Industrial Security Program. For contractors processed in accordance with DHS MD 11035, the investigative standard for access to Secret classified information will be a MBI. The minimum investigative standard for access to Top Secret classified information will be a SSBI. Each designated employee must complete all applicable forms." Vendor employees (to include applicants, temporaries, part-time and replacement employees) under the BPA needing access to sensitive information shall undergo a position sensitivity analysis based on the duties each individual will perform on the BPA. The results of the position sensitivity analysis shall identify the appropriate background investigation to be conducted. All background investigations will be processed through the Security Office. Prospective vendor employees with adequate security clearances issued by the Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO) may not be required to submit complete security packages, as the clearance issued by DISCO may be accepted. Prospective vendor employees shall submit the following completed forms to the Security Office, through the COTR, no less than 30 days before the starting date of the BPA or 30 days prior to entry on duty of any employees, whether a replacement, addition, sub-vendor employee, or vendor.

Standard Form 85P, “Questionnaire for National Security Positions”

Lautenberg Amendment Statement (plus one copy)

FD Form 258, “Fingerprint Card” (2 copies)

Foreign National Relative or Associates Statements

DHS 11000-9, “Disclosure and Authorization Pertaining to Consumer Reports Pursuant to the Fair Credit Reporting Act”

Drug Questionnaire

Alcohol Questionnaire

DHS/ FPS will provide required forms at the time of award of the BPA. Only complete packages will be accepted by the DHS/ FPS Contract Suitability Adjudication Program

Office. Specific instructions on submission of packages will be provided upon award of the BPA. Standard Form 85P, “Questionnaire for National Security Positions” Form will be submitted via e-QIP (electronic Questionnaires for Investigation Processing)

F.The vendor is responsible for all costs associated with obtaining and renewing the applicable security clearances for each affected vendor employee. The costs should be factored into the offering prices, as they will not be itemized or paid for separately by the Government.

G.The vendor is advised to only submit security packages on suitable prospective employees whose integrity, credit, and character will meet the security suitability requirements of DHS. DHS will likely consider as being unsuitable prospective employees who fail to truthfully represent their credit history; who make no attempt to pay debts; and whose character could be questionable because of serious arrests, illegal drug use, or abuse of alcohol.

H.Unless an applicant/employee has resided in the U.S. for three of the past five years, the Government may not be able to complete a satisfactory background investigation. In such cases, DHS retains the right to deem an applicant/employee as ineligible due to insufficient background information.

18.2Access To Classified Information (Vendor)

The DHS has determined that the performance of this BPA requires that the vendor, sub-vendor(s), etc., (herein known as vendor) require(s) access to sensitive DHS information or classified National Security Information (herein known as classified information). Classified information is Government information that requires protection in accordance with Executive Order 12958, Classified National Security Information, and supplementing directives.

See, Exhibit 6C, Security Suitability Requirements, for a determination of which, if any, Vendor facilities and Vendor personnel, including Contract Manager or Supervisor, assigned to this BPA are required to possess up to a TOP SECRET security clearance.

If access to classified information is required as identified in Section J, Exhibit 6C, the vendor will abide by the requirements set forth in the DD Form 254, Contract Security Classification Specification, DHS MD 11035, Industrial Security Program and the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM) for the protection of classified information at its cleared facility, if applicable, as directed by the Defense Security Service. If the Vendor has access to classified information at a DHS or other Government facility, it will abide by the requirements set by that agency. If these procedures are not properly followed by the vendor, it will result in deductions from monthly invoices.

The vendor and all applicable personnel shall be cleared pursuant to the Defense Industrial Security Regulations, or other applicable regulations. The Vendor shall hold

as a minimum, interim facility clearance requirements subsequent to the official award date, and/or at least thirty- (30) days prior to the BPA start-up date.

If access to classified information is required as identified in Exhibit 6C, the vendor must possess a TOP SECRET facility clearance consistent with DHS MD Industrial Security Program prior to BPA award. If an unclear firm is selected, DHS will sponsor the firm for the facility clearance. If the facility clearance is not issued within 180 days, DHS may terminate the BPA for the convenience of the Government.

18.3Continued Eligibility

A contractor on whom unfavorable or derogatory information has been uncovered must be presented with the information and offered an opportunity to refute, explain, clarify, or mitigate the information in question. If a determination of ineligibility is made, the individual will be formally notified and informed of the reasons(s) If a prospective employee is found to be ineligible for access to Government facilities or information, the COTR will advise the vendor that the employee shall not continue to work or to be assigned to work under the BPA.

The Security Office may require drug screening for probable cause at any time and/or when the vendor independently identifies circumstances where probable cause exists.

DHS reserves the right and prerogative to deny and/or restrict the facility and information access of any vendor employee whose actions are in conflict with the standards of conduct, 5 CFR 2635 and 5 CFR 3801, or whom DHS determines to present a risk of compromising sensitive Government information to which he or she would have access under this BPA.

The vendor will immediately report any adverse information coming to their attention concerning vendor employees under the BPA to the COTR. Reports based on rumor or innuendo should not be made. The subsequent termination of employment of an employee does not obviate the requirement to submit this report. The report shall include the employees’ name and social security number, along with the adverse information being reported.

E.The vendor must notify the Security Office of all terminations/resignations within five

(5) days of occurrence. The vendor will return any expired DHS/FPS issued identification cards and building passes, or those of terminated employees to the COTR. When a controlled personnel identification system is used by a tenant agency at a site at which the vendor employee is assigned for duty, and the tenant agency provided the vendor employee with the necessary Government identification, the vendor shall ensure that all Government identifications are returned to the issuing agency when employees are terminated or resign, or upon expiration of the BPA, whichever comes first. If an identification card or building pass is not available to be returned, a report must be submitted to the COTR, referencing the pass or card number, name of individual to whom issued, the last known location and disposition of the pass card.

A copy of any National Security Information clearance issued, where required by this BPA (i.e., Secret/Top Secret).

The CO or COTR shall have the express authority to review any vendor employee’s file at any time during the course of the BPA.

The CO or COTR can request, at any time during the course of the BPA, a spreadsheet or other tracking system (either in paper form or in electronic form) that clearly details the status of all vendor employees pertaining to BPA requirements.

The vendor will maintain a hard-copy (paper) file using the CERTS tracking system containing all the information required above. However, if the vendor uses a computerized filing system, all forms must be scanned into the computer and must be legible.

WEB Contract Guard Employment Requirements Tracking System (CERT)

The National CERT Log is used by FPS personnel to input security officer information into a national database. It is imperative that the information is correct and current.

The FPS CERT log computer program (Microsoft Excel format) will be provided to the Vendor after award and shall be used by the Vendor to document the fact that their personnel are certified as outlined in the BPA. The dates listed on the CERT log must match the paperwork in the vendor employee’s folder.

The CERT log shall be updated monthly by the vendor and forwarded to the local FPS representative via e-mail. Monthly updates and new employee information will be outlined in a different color.

The CERT log will be used as part of the FPS inspection program and will be reviewed on a monthly basis with the vendor.

In conjunction with the CERT log, the vendor shall organize the employees' information folders in accordance with the format outlined in Exhibit 4A - Employee Folder Certification Layout.

False statements, certification, or falsification of any documents required in this BPA by the Vendor, Contract Manager, or any Contract employee shall be punishable under US Code Title 18, Chapter 47, Section 1001, Fraud and False Statements. Additionally, the Government may initiate investigations by its Office of Inspector General or the regional FPS Criminal Investigations Branch, may initiate debarment proceedings, and/or may take Contractual remedies, up to and including termination for default. Under no circumstances whatsoever will the Government tolerate falsification of required documents.

20 Performance Evaluations

The CO and/or COTR shall meet with the vendor (either in person or via teleconference) on a monthly basis.

The Government shall formally evaluate, in writing, the vendor’s performance at least once per year.

The vendor shall be permitted to respond, in writing, to the findings of the performance evaluation. Both the performance evaluation and the vendor’s response shall be filed in the BPA file. Where the vendor fails to respond in writing to a performance evaluation, the CO shall assume the vendor’s complete concurrence with the findings of the performance evaluation. The CO and/or COTR shall meet with the vendor prior to all performance evaluations to discuss the results of the Government’s quality control findings and the overall performance of the BPA by the vendor.

The Government shall use the performance evaluations as a factor to determine whether to exercise any available additional ordering period and/or as a factor to determine whether to award any future BPA(s) to the vendor.

21 Personal Appearance and Grooming Standards

Security Officers shall be in uniform and maintain a neat, clean, and business-like appearance and comply with dress standards while on duty. Failure to meet the requirements of appearance and wearing of the uniform as noted herein is considered as being "out of uniform".

ATTACHMENT 3

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

(C)EFT banking information is not required if the Government waived the requirement to pay by EFT.

Invoices without the above information may be rejected and returned for resubmission.

3.All contractors are required to register in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR). This can be performed via the internet at http://www.ccr.gov.

4.Invoices shall separately list amounts due for basic and temporary additional services.

02.PAYMENTS

A.Payment will be made on a calendar month basis in arrears upon submission of an invoice. Payment will be due on the 30th calendar day after receipt of a proper invoice or date of receipt of services, whichever is later. In the event the task order begins or ends during the month, payments will be prorated based on the number of calendar days in the respective month.

B.It is the objective of the Government to obtain complete and satisfactory performance in accordance with the terms of specifications and requirements of this BPA. The criteria for deductions and adjustments below will be used by the Government in determining monetary deductions for nonperformance of work under this task order and for adjustments for deficiencies in the performance of work. In no event shall contractor invoice or FPS be obligated to pay for any hours in excess of the amount identified within a task order (inclusive of all modifications).

C.The Contractor is responsible for submitting accurate invoices that reflect the actual services provided each month. Where there are variances between the requirements cited in the task order(s) and the work actually performed (e.g., unmanned posts), the Contractor shall attach a separate sheet to the invoice detailing each instance of a variance. The Contractor shall compute the invoice price to reflect the actual amount owed. Submission of false invoices shall be subject to contractual and legal actions.

D.To verify the monthly payment for productive man-hours, the CO's designated representative may compare the man-hours required in the task order with the DHS Form 139, Record of Time of Arrival and Departure from Buildings, or other approved sign- in/sign-out form. The Government may perform a 100% comparison or sampled comparison to verify the accuracy of the Contractor’s invoice. The Government will only pay for services actually rendered by the Contractor and funded on the contract/task order. If variances are noted between the invoice and the DHS Form 139, the Government will propose a contract deduction. For example, If the task order required that a post be manned for 12 hours, and the Contractor billed for 12 hours, but the DHS Form 139 shows that post was manned for 10 hours, the 10 hours will prevail and the Government will deduct the difference.

Any inquiries regarding payment shall be directed to the COTR and/or CO.

03.ADJUSTING PAYMENTS FOR CONTRACTOR PERFORMANCE

RFQ # HSCEE3-08-Q-0001

ATTACHMENT 3

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

A.Deductions for Failure to Provide Man-hours

1.To compute man-hour deductions the Contracting Officer's Representative will compare the man-hours reported by the Contractor with the DHS Form 139, Record of Time of Arrival and Departure from Buildings, or other approved Sign-in/Sign-out forms.

2.Reduction at Post – In the event that posted guards were released

or were not required to report due to weather closure, Presidential declared holiday, or similar unforeseen occurrence, payments will be made only for the hours actually worked.

3.In the event the Contractor reports more hours than are reflected on the DHS Form 139, or any other approved Sign-in/Sign-out form, the approved form will prevail. For example: If the weekly report submitted by the Contractor indicates that an employee worked 8 hours and the sign-in/sign-out form shows that employee as having been in the building 5 hours, the 5 hours will prevail and a deduction will be taken for the 3 hours not furnished. In the event the Contractor, for any reason whatsoever, fails to provide the manpower specified for labor, deductions will be made at the current base hourly rate.

B.Contractor Use of DHS Form 139, or Approved Alternate

The Contractor shall maintain, on a daily basis, all applicable DHS Form 139’s, or approved alternate, to document personnel attendance. The original copy must be maintained at a location accessible to the COTR or designee. The Contractor shall incorporate and certify that the data contained on the approved sign-in form is accurate, complete and in agreement with the hours presented on their invoice. (Facsimile copies of completed DHS Form 139’s may not be used for this purpose.)
