Background checks as outlined below shall be accomplished prior to the first day of performance. Background checks shall be accomplished at no additional cost to the government. GENERAL The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has determined that performance of the tasks as described in this future award requires that the Contractor, subcontractor(s), vendor(s), etc. (herein known as Contractor) have access to sensitive DHS information, and that the Contractor will adhere to the following. SUITABILITY DETERMINATION DHS shall have and exercise full control over granting, denying, withholding or terminating unescorted government facility and/or sensitive Government information access for Contractor employees, based upon the results of a background investigation. DHS may, as it deems appropriate, authorize and make a 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 contract. No employee of the Contractor shall be allowed to EOD and/or access sensitive information or systems without a favorable EOD decision or suitability determination by the Office of Professional Responsibility, Personnel Security Unit (OPR-PSU). No employee of the Contractor shall be allowed unescorted access to a Government facility without a favorable EOD decision or suitability determination by the OPR-PSU. Contract employees assigned to the contract not needing access to sensitive DHS information or recurring access to DHS' facilities will not be subject to security suitability screening. BACKGROUND INVESTIGATIONS Contract employees (to include applicants, temporaries, part-time and replacement employees) under the contract, needing access to sensitive information, shall undergo a position sensitivity analysis based on the duties each individual will perform on the contract. The results of the position sensitivity analysis shall identify the appropriate background investigation to be conducted. Background investigations will be processed through the Personnel Security Unit. Prospective Contractor 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 Contactor employees without adequate security clearances issued by DISCO shall submit the following completed forms to the Personnel Security Unit through the COTR, no less than 5 days before the starting date of the contract or 5 days prior to the expected entry on duty of any employees, whether a replacement, addition, subcontractor employee, or vendor: 1. Standard Form 85P, "Questionnaire for Public Trust Positions" Form will be submitted via e-QIP (electronic Questionnaires for Investigation Processing) (2 copies) 2. FD Form 258, "Fingerprint Card" (2 copies) 3. Foreign National Relatives or Associates Statement 4. DHS 11000-9, "Disclosure and Authorization Pertaining to Consumer Reports Pursuant to the Fair Credit Reporting Act" 5. Optional Form 306, "Declaration for Federal Employment" (applies to contractors as well) 6. Authorization for Release of Medical Information Required forms will be provided by DHS at the time of award of the contract. Only complete packages will be accepted by the OPR-PSU. Specific instructions on submission of packages will be provided upon award of contract. Be advised that unless an applicant requiring access to sensitive information has resided in the US for the past 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 as ineligible due to insufficient background information. The use of Non-U.S. citizens, including Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs), is not permitted in the performance of this contract for any position that involves access to, development of, or maintenance to any DHS IT system. CONTINUED ELIGIBILITY If a prospective employee is found to be ineligible for access to Government facilities or information, the COTR will advise the Contractor that the employee shall not continue to work or to be assigned to work under the contract. The OPR-PSU may require drug screening for probable cause at any time and/or when the contractor independently identifies circumstances where probable cause exists. The OPR-PSU may require reinvestigations when derogatory information is received and/or every 5 years. DHS reserves the right and prerogative to deny and/or restrict the facility and information access of any Contractor 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 contract. The Contractor will report any adverse information coming to their attention concerning contract employees under the contract to the OPR-PSU through 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 employee's name and social security number, along with the adverse information being reported. The OPR-PSU must be notified of all terminations/resignations within five days of occurrence. The Contractor will return, if issued, any expired DHS identification cards and building passes, or those of terminated employees to the COTR. 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 or card. The COTR will return the identification cards and building passes to the responsible ID Unit.

(End of Clause) 52.217-9 -- Option to Extend the Term of the Contract (Mar 2000) (a) The Government may extend the term of this contract by written notice to the Contractor within 30 calendar days before the contract expires; provided that the Government gives the Contractor a preliminary written notice of its intent to extend at least 60 days before the contract expires. The preliminary notice does not commit the Government to an extension. (b) If the Government exercises this option, the extended contract shall be considered to include this option clause. (c) The total duration of this contract, including the exercise of any options under this clause, shall not exceed 66 months. (End of Clause) Economic Price Adjustment for Gasoline: The awarded prices for the option period line items, if exercised, shall be adjusted for increases/decreases in gasoline prices at time of exercise. (a) To the extent that contract cost increases/decreases are provided for by this economic price adjustment clause, the vendor warrants that the prices in this proposal for any option periods do not include any amount to protect against such contingent cost increases (no increases for gasoline prices included in the option periods). (b) The cost index, for the purpose of price adjustment under this clause, shall be the American Automobile Association (AAA) Daily Fuel Gauge Report, Current Price per Gallon for San Diego, California, unleaded regular, available at http://www.fuelgaugereport.com, as of July 14, 2010 (1) The Base Index, for the purposes of price adjustment under this clause, shall be $3.11, the most recent index published prior to the issue of this solicitation (rounded.5 and up, to the next higher number). This Base Index shall remain constant throughout the life of the contract, including all options. (2) The Adjusting Index shall be the most recent Index published on the date the Government provides the contractor preliminary written notice of its intent to exercise an option period. In the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report Current Price per Gallon for San Diego, California Gasoline, unleaded regular discontinues, or alters substantially, its method of calculating the Index cited herein, the parties shall mutually agree upon an appropriate substitute for determining the price adjustment described herein. (c) In preparation for exercise of an option period, the Contracting Officer shall apply the difference between the Base Index and the Adjusting Index to the option year prices by multiplying the increase/decrease times the number of gallons identified for each line item. Only the line items of the option year being exercised will be adjusted. (d) An example of an adjustment calculation is provided below for informational purposes only. For purposes of this example, assume that the contract price for the option period being exercised $2,000.00 per month, and includes costs for 200 gallons of gasoline. If the Base Index (the most recent index published prior to the issue of this solicitation) is $3.50 per gallon and Adjustment Index (the most recent Index published on the date the Government provides the contractor preliminary written notice of its intent to exercise an option period) is $3.65 per gallon, the calculations for contract price adjustment would be as follows: Adjusting Index $3.65 per gallon Minus the Base Index -$3.50 per gallon Equals increase (or decrease) to the Base Index $.15 increase Option Line Item gasoline quantity multiplied by increase (or decrease) 200 *.15 = $30.00 Option Line Item price adjusted by increase ( or decrease) $2,000.00 + $30.00 = $2,030.00 SEE ATTACHMENTS FOR PRICE SCHEDULE AND PAST PERFORMANCE QUESTIONAIRE
