52.218-000 Continuing Contract Performance During a Pandemic Influenza or other National Emergency (MAY 2008)
During a Pandemic or other emergency we understand that our contractor workforce will experience the same high levels of absenteeism as our federal employees. Although the Excusable Delays and Termination for Default clauses used in government contracts list epidemics and quarantine restrictions among the reasons to excuse delays in contract performance, we expect our contractors to make a reasonable effort to keep performance at an acceptable level during emergency periods.
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has provided guidance to federal managers and employees on the kinds of actions to be taken to ensure the continuity of operations during emergency periods. This guidance is also applicable to our contract workforce. Contractors are expected to have reasonable policies in place for continuing work performance, particularly those performing mission critical services, during a pandemic influenza or other emergency situation.
The types of actions a federal contractor should reasonably take to help ensure performance are:
Encourage employees to get inoculations or follow other preventive measures as advised by the public health service.
Contractors should cross-train workers as backup for all positions performing critical services. This is particularly important for work such as guard services where telework is not an option.
? Implement telework to the greatest extent possible in the workgroup so systems are in place to support successful remote work in an emergency.
? Communicate expectations to all employees regarding their roles and responsibilities in relation to remote work in the event of a pandemic health crisis or other emergency.
Establish communication processes to notify employees of activation of this plan.
? Integrate pandemic health crisis response expectations into telework agreements.
With the employee, assess requirements for working at home (supplies and equipment needed for an extended telework period). Security concerns should be considered in making equipment choices; agencies or contractors may wish to avoid use of employees' personal computers and provide them with PCs or laptops as appropriate.
? Determine how all employees who may telework will communicate with one another and with management to accomplish work.
Practice telework regularly to ensure effectiveness.
? Make it clear that in emergency situations, employees must perform all duties assigned by management, even if they are outside usual or customary duties.
? Identify how time and attendance will be maintained.
It is the contractor's responsibility to advise the government contracting officer if they anticipate not being able to perform and to work with the Department to fill gaps as necessary. This means direct communication with the contracting officer or in his/her absence, another responsible person in the contracting office via telephone or email messages acknowledging the contractors notification.
The incumbent contractor is responsible for assisting the Department in estimating the adverse impacts of nonperformance and to work diligently with the Department to develop a strategy for maintaining the continuity of operations.

Information Resellers or Data Brokers (MAR 2008)
Under this contract, the Department obtains personally identifiable information about individuals from the contractor. The contractor hereby certifies that it has a security policy in place which contains procedures to promptly notify any individual whose personally identifiable information (as defined by OMB) was, or is reasonably believed to have been, lost or acquired by an unauthorized person while the data is under the control of the contractor. In any case in which the data that was lost or improperly acquired reflects or consists of data that originated with the Department, or reflects sensitive law enforcement or national security interest in the data, the contractor shall notify the Department Contracting Officer so that the Department may determine whether notification would impede a law enforcement investigation or jeopardize national security. In such cases, the contractor shall not notify the individuals until it receives further instruction from the Department.
(End of Clause)
BOP 2852.242-71 Evaluation of Contractor Performance Utilizing CPARS

The Bureau utilizes the Department of Defense (DOD) web-based Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) to provide contractor performance evaluations. The contractor shall provide and maintain a current e-mail address throughout the life of the contract. The contractor will receive an e-mail from the Focal Point thru the following website address email@example.com when the contractor is registered in CPARS. The e-mail will contain a "user ID" and temporary password to register in the CPARS system. The contractor must be registered to access and review its evaluation and/or provide a response.
