ADDENDUM to 52.212-4 Contract Terms and Conditions-Commercial Items (Feb 2012) is tailored in accordance with FAR 12.302: (a) INSPECTION/ACCEPTANCE: "Government inspection" shall mean inspection by the Seller's representative qualified to perform such inspection in accordance with Seller's customary commercial practice. "Acceptance" will be based on submission of 1) a Seller certificate of conformance, and 2) Seller's issuance of a Memo of Shipment document. The Government's post acceptance rights are defined in FAR 52.246-2 (AUG 1996), paragraphs (k) and (l). These paragraphs are hereby added to the end of FAR 52.212-4(a) as shown below. "(k) Inspections and tests by the Government do not relieve the Contractor of responsibility for defects or other failures to meet contract requirements discovered before acceptance. Acceptance shall be conclusive, except for latent defects, fraud, gross mistakes amounting to fraud, or as otherwise provided in the contract." "(l) If acceptance is not conclusive for any of the reasons in paragraph (k) hereof, the Government, in addition to any other rights and remedies provided by law, or under other provisions of this contract, shall have the right to require the Contractor (1) at no increase in contract price, to correct or replace the defective or nonconforming supplies at the original point of delivery or at the Contractor's plant at the Contracting Officer's election, and in accordance with a reasonable delivery schedule as may be agreed upon between the Contractor and the Contracting Officer; provided, that the Contracting Officer may require a reduction in contract price if the Contractor fails to meet such delivery schedule, or (2) within a reasonable time after receipt by the Contractor of notice of defects or nonconformance, to repay such portion of the contract as is equitable under the circumstances if the Contracting Officer elects not to require correction or replacement. When supplies are returned to the Contractor, the Contractor shall bear the transportation cost from the original point of delivery to the Contractor's plant and return to the original point when that point is not the Contractor's plant. If the Contractor fails to perform or act as required in paragraph (l)(1) or (l)(2) of this clause and does not cure such failure within a period of 10 days (or such longer period as the Contracting Officer may authorize in writing) after receipt of notice from the Contracting Officer specifying such failure, the Government shall have the right by contract or otherwise to replace or correct such supplies and charge to the Contractor the cost occasioned the Government thereby." (h) PATENT INDEMNITY: is hereby replaced in its entirety with the following text: A. If the Government receives a claim that any Product or part thereof manufactured by the Contractor, without further combination, infringes a United States patent, the Government shall notify the Contractor promptly in writing and give the Contractor all available information to evaluate such claim and, at the Government's discretion, the Contractor may be permitted to assist the Government in its defense and/or seek an equitable settlement with the patent infringement claimant. The Contractor shall then at its own expense and option (i) pay the reasonable and entire compensation pursuant to 28 USC §1498, or (ii) procure for the Government the right to use such Product, or (iii) replace or modify the Product to avoid infringement, or (iv) assist the Government in defending against such claims in the US Court of Federal Claims. If the US Court of Federal Claims holds such Product to constitute infringement, the Contractor shall take at its option one or more of the actions under (i), (ii), or (iii) above. With respect to any Product not manufactured by the Contractor, the patent indemnity, if any, given by the manufacturer thereof shall apply. B. The rights and obligations of the parties with respect to patents are solely and exclusively as stated herein. C. This Patent Indemnity clause shall not apply to claims related to the contractor's performance at the Government's direction, such as the contractor's implementation of DFARS 252.211-7003, Item Identification and Valuation. The Government's configuration control of items to be delivered under this contract, standing alone, shall not be interpreted to mean "performance at the Government's direction." D. THE PATENT OBLIGATIONS RECITED ABOVE ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER PATENT OBLIGATIONS WHATSOEVER, WHETHER ORAL, WRITTEN, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. (j) RISK OF LOSS: The contract shall state FOB Origin. (l) TERMINATION for the Government's Convenience: The Government reserves the right to terminate the contract, or any part hereof, for its' sole convenience provided the end user customer (or Government's customer's) contract is terminated. (m) Termination for Cause: In the event of the Government decides to terminate under this paragraph, the Contractor shall be paid the contract price for completed supplies delivered and accepted. Additionally, the Government shall: (1) provide written notice of default to the Contractor, (2) identify in the notice the bases for the Government's termination decision, and (3) provide the Contractor with an opportunity to cure such failure within (15) days after receipt of the Contracting Officer's written notice. (n) TITLE: "Acceptance" will be based on the submission of 1) a Seller certificate of conformance, and 2) Seller's issuance of a Memo of Shipment document. The Government's post acceptance rights are defined in FAR 52.246-2 (AUG 1996), paragraphs (k) and (l) and are incorporated herein by reference.

The Government is requested to return to Dowty any item found to be defective under warranty. Dowty shall without charge, at its option, either repair or replace any item found to its satisfaction to be defective and under this warranty. (p) LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: The liability of Dowty to the Government arising out of or connected with or resulting from the manufacture sale, possession, use or handling of any Goods whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise shall not in any event exceed the purchase price of the Goods giving rise to the Government's claim. The foregoing shall constitute the sole remedy of the Government and the sole liability of Dowty. In no event shall supplier be liable for indirect, incidental or consequential losses or damages. The warranties of merchantability and expressed or implied, are disclaimed.

NOTICE FOR FILING AGENCY PROTESTS United States Coast Guard Ombudsman Program It is the policy of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) to issue solicitations and make contract awards in a fair and timely manner. The Ombudsman Program for Agency Protests (OPAP) was established to investigate agency protest issues and resolve them without expensive and time-consuming litigation. OPAP is an independent reviewing authority that is empowered to grant a prevailing protester essentially the same relief as the General Accountability Office (GAO). Interested parties are encouraged to seek resolution of their concerns within the USCG as an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) forum, rather than filing a protest with the GAO or some external forum. Interested parties may seek resolution of their concerns informally or opt to file a formal agency protest with the contracting officer or Ombudsman. Informal forum with the Ombudsman. Interested parties who believe a specific USCG procurement is unfair or otherwise defective should first direct their concerns to the cognizant contracting officer. If the contracting officer is unable to satisfy the concerns, the interested party is encouraged to contact the USCG Ombudsman for Agency Protests. Under this informal process, the agency is not required to suspend contract award performance. Use of an informal forum does not suspend any time requirement for filing a protest with the agency or other forum. In order to ensure a timely response, interested parties should provide the following information to the Ombudsman: solicitation/contract number, contracting office, contracting officer, and solicitation closing date (if applicable). Formal Agency Protest with the Ombudsman. Prior to submitting a formal agency protest, protesters must first use their best efforts to resolve their concerns with the contracting officer through open and frank discussions. If the protester's concerns are unresolved, an independent review is available by the Ombudsman. The protester may file a formal agency protest to either the contracting officer or as an alternative to that, the Ombudsman under the OPAP program. Contract award or performance will be suspended during the protest period unless contract award or performance is justified, in writing, for urgent and compelling reasons or is determined in writing to be in the best interest of the Government. The agency's goal is to resolve protests in less than 35 calendar days from the date of filing. Protests shall include the information set forth in FAR 33.103. If the protester fails to submit the required information, resolution of the protest may be delayed or the protest may be dismissed. This will not preclude re-filing of the protest to meet the requirement. To be timely, protests must be filed within the period specified in FAR 33.103(e). Formal protests filed under the OPAP program should be submitted to: Department of Homeland Security United States Coast Guard (CG-9131) Ombudsman Program for Agency Protests 2100 2nd Street, SW, Stop 7112 Washington, D. C. 20593-7112 FAX: 202.475.3904 The Ombudsman Hotline telephone number is 202.372.3695.
