Prior to award, contractor may be required to provide information related to specific equipment that will be
used for production.
PREAWARD SURVEY: In order to determine the responsibility of the prime contractor or any
subcontractor, the Government reserves the right to conduct an on-site pre-award survey at the
contractor's/subcontractor's facility or to require other evidence of technical, production, managerial,
financial, and similar abilities to perform, prior to the award of a contract. As part of the financial
determination, the contractor in line for award may be required to provide one or more of the following
financial documents:
1) Most recent profit and loss statement
2) Most recent balance sheet
3) Statement of cash flows
4) Current official bank statement
5) Current lines of credit (with amounts available)
6) Letter of commitment from paper supplier(s)

The documents will be reviewed to validate that adequate financial resources are available to perform the
contract requirements. Documents submitted will be kept confidential, and used only for the determination
of responsibility by the Government. Failure to provide the requested information in the time specified by
the Government may result in the Contracting Officer not having adequate information to reach an
affirmative determination of responsibility.
