The DOC Library provides resources and research support to Commerce employees so they are better able to fulfill the mission of the Department. The collections include both print and electronic materials and cover subject areas related to business, economics, trade, legislation, law, and government publications. The library requires certain high-level skill sets in order to successfully process the subject-specific materials in the collection. Based on the size of the collection, the library only requires part-time cataloging assistance. The DOC Library needs a Contractor to perform original and copy cataloging of current and archival monographs, serials, and electronic resources for its collections. The Contractor will be responsible for adding, modifying, and discarding metadata in the online integrated library and the digital asset management system. Many items in the collection are damaged or deteriorating, and will require the Contractor to repair or recommend storage options based on current archival “best practices”. The Contractor will perform basic technical work to prepare resources for shelving. The Contractor shall perform these activities in various circumstances: when creating records for new materials; when upgrading lower-level records to full-level; when updating records to meet current bibliographic standards; when updating records for continuations of all kinds (i.e. serials, multipart items, government publications, newspapers) to include new bibliographic and/or holdings information; in handling referrals and requests for corrections from Library staff in the course of problem-solving; as a result of review/revision; on a project basis. 2. Description of Tasks and Deliverables (i) Contractor shall perform original and copy cataloging of current monographs and serials (including title changes), and electronic resources for the DOC Library’s collections. (ii) Contractor shall provide original and copy cataloging of archival monographs, serials (including title changes), and electronic resources for the Department of Commerce and other government publications. (iii) Contractor shall provide original cataloging for legislative histories in print and digitized formats. (iv) Contractor shall recommend and enter metadata for legislative histories and other publications into the on-line integrated library system (ILS) and the digital asset management system. (v) Contractor shall prepare and upload digitized resources into the digital asset management system. (vi) Contractor shall create, modify, and maintain serial check-in records in the on-line integrated library system (ILS). (vii) Contractor shall maintain the ILS records by checking weekly reports generated by the ILS and correcting typographical errors, cataloging errors, errors in ISBD punctuation, and any other errors noted. (viii) Contractor shall modify current catalog records to reflect changes in print retention, electronic holdings, subject fields, location, call number, and deaccession. (iv) Contractor shall identify damaged or fragile materials and repair or recommend storage options based on current archival “best practices”. (x) Contractor shall provide limited technical processing (including only labels, label covers, and barcodes). 3. Performance Standards: Of primary importance the Contractor’s performance is catalog integrity, so performance of the various component activities must be as near to perfect as is possible (95%). Correcting errors, resolving problems caused by a wide variety of bibliographic and treatment conflicts and database cleanup to clarify the library’s holdings are “end-of-the-line” activities, and there are generally no avenues for further referral, except for those matters which involve departures from standard library policies. These catalog management functions, therefore, are characterized by the relative lack of definable and measurable standards and outside indicators that can be used to gauge performance. As a result, the Contractor’s performance shall be evaluated by a broad-based review process which takes into account the source of assignments, difficulty of problems, impact of problems and their resolutions, feedback from other library staff, and the overall condition of the catalog and collection as the result of regulation and repair activities. The COR shall inspect performance using spot checks of newly added or modified records, visual inspection of print materials processed for shelving in the archives or regular collection, and volume of assigned work completed when compared to the difficulty of the task. 4. Skill or Relevant Experience Requirements Key personnel must have the following skills and experience: • A Masters Degree in Library Science or Library and Information Science from an institution accredited by the American Library Association. • Ten (10) years of recent professional library experience in original cataloging for monographs, serials, government publications, and electronic resources using the following: o Anglo American Cataloging Rules (AARCII) and current updates; o Library of Congress Rule Interpretations (most current); o Library of Congress Classification Scheme; o Library of Congress Subject Headings; o MARC Bibliographic Format. • Ten (10) years of recent professional library experience using integrated library automation systems. • Ten (10) years of recent professional library experience providing cataloging and serials services in a special library, government, corporate, or non-profit setting in which the primary duties were processing and cataloging a variety of print and electronic materials in the subject areas of business, economics, trade, legislation, law, and government publications. • Five (5) years of professional library experience using OCLC. • Five (5) years of recent professional library experience using SirsiDynix Symphony, specifically using SmartPort, creating, modifying, and discarding records, and creating and maintaining serial control records. • Two (2) years of professional library experience using SirsiDynix Enterprise/Portfolio (digital asset management system). 5. Government-furnished Resources A computer networked to a printer with the appropriate ILS and digital asset management system software, as well as Internet access, will be available. The Library will purchase all labels, label covers, barcodes, and any archival supplies the Contractor recommends that the COR deems reasonable to repair or store archival materials. The Library will provide copies of the Library of Congress Classification Schedules and the MARC Bibliographic Format. 6.

Also, the Government does not intend to award a contract on the basis of this RFI or Sources Sought Notice, or otherwise pay for information, inquiries, or the Government’s use of such information.

GSA announces an opportunity for a federal art commission in conjunction with the modernization of the/Bolling Federal Building in Kansas City, Missouri.    GSA will modernize the federal building to meet the needs of its various tenants: Social Security Administration, US Army Corps of Engineers and several other agencies.   This modernization project is a pivotal undertaking in extending the life of the building.   It will include the design and the replacement or upgrade of outdated mechanical and electrical systems.   With the completion of the modernization project, the building will apply for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) gold certification. GSA allocates one-half of one percent of the estimated construction costs of new or modernized federal buildings for art commissions.   The art budget for the Bolling Federal Building project is currently estimated to be $400,000.   One or more artists will be awarded a fixed-price contract for a commission. Artists who wish to be considered for this and all future GSA art commissions must submit application materials to GSA’s National Artists Registry (Registry).   The Registry constitutes the qualified list of artists for this and all GSA commissions.   Instructions on how to join the Registry are available on the following Web site:   www.gsa.gov/artinarchitecture All artists who wish to be considered as candidates for a commission at the Bolling Federal Building in Kansas City, Missouri, must have their application materials submitted and received by GSA by 3:00 PM Eastern Time on July 20, 2012.   Artists’ submissions received after the deadline will not be considered for this project, but will be eligible for consideration on future GSA commissions alongside the other artists on the Registry.   Artists already on the Registry need not resubmit, but may elect to update their information prior to the deadline. GSA evaluates artists based on the following criteria: the media, materials, content, style, and scope of the artist’s past work, along with the artist’s past performance and experience with commissions or projects similar to the one described in this synopsis.   Short-listed artists will be contacted and asked to submit additional information including a statement that he or she can perform the work associated with the GSA commission within the identified budget.   GSA will count the combined weight of all the selection criteria as significantly more important than price. At a minimum, the scope of services for this commission will require: collaboration with the lead designer selected for the building project; development of preliminary and final concepts; fabrication of the artwork; participation in meetings and conservation reviews as necessary; and the installation of the artwork at the project site.   Place of Performance: Richard Bolling Federeal Building 601 East 12th Street Kansas City, MO 64106 US URL:https://www.fbo.gov/notices/ce77dd61d411db920c29389c7dc64bb7 OutreachSystems Article Number: 120613/PROCURE/0074 Matching Key Words: naics!711510;

Long-Term Contractor Personnel: In order to be compliant with HSPD-12/PIV I, the following investigative requirements must be met for each new long-term contractor employee whose background investigation (BI) process begins on or after October 27, 2005: a. Contractor Personnel must present two forms of identification in original form prior to badge issuance (acceptable documents are listed in Form I-9, OMB No. 1615-0047, ” Employment Eligibility Verification, ” and at least one document must be a valid State or Federal government-issued picture ID); b. Contractor Personnel must appear in person at least once before a DOJ official who is responsible for checking the identification documents. This identity proofing must be completed sometime during the clearance process but prior to badge issuance and must be documented by the DOJ official; c. Contractor Personnel must undergo a BI commensurate with the designated risk level associated with the duties of each position. Outlined below are the minimum BI requirements for each risk level: • High Risk – Background Investigation (5 year scope) Moderate Risk – Limited Background Investigation (LBI) or Minimum Background Investigation (MBI) Low Risk – National Agency Check with Inquiries (NACI) investigation d. The pre-appointment BI waiver requirements for all position sensitivity levels are a: 1) Favorable review of the security questionnaire form; 2) Favorable fingerprint results; 3) Favorable credit report, if required; 4) Waiver request memorandum, including both the Office of Personnel Management schedule date and position sensitivity/risk level; and 5) Favorable review of the National Agency Check (NAC) portion of the applicable BI that is determined by position sensitivity/risk level.

If the NAC is not received within five days of OPM ‘ s scheduling date, the badge can be issued based on a favorable review of the Security Questionnaire and the Federal Bureau of Investigation Criminal History Check (i.e., fingerprint check results). e. Badge re-validation will occur once the investigation is completed and favorably adjudicated. If the BI results so justify, badges issued under these procedures will be suspended or revoked. 2. Short-Term Contractor Personnel: It is the policy of the DOJ that short-term contractors having access to DOJ information systems and/or DOJ facilities or space for six months or fewer are subject to the identity proofing requirements listed in items 1a. and 1b. above. The pre-appointment waiver requirements for short-term contractors are: a. Favorable review of the security questionnaire form; b. Favorable fingerprint results; c. Favorable credit report, if required; and d. Waiver request memorandum indicating both the position sensitivity/risk level and the duration of the appointment. The commensurate BI does not need to be initiated. A badge may be issued following approval of the above waiver requirements and the badge will expire six months from the date of issuance. This process can only be used once for a short-term contractor in a twelve month period. This will ensure that any consecutive short-term appointments are subject to the full PIV-I identity proofing process. For example, if a contractor employee requires daily access for a three or four-week period, this contractor would be cleared according to the above short-term requirements. However, if a second request is submitted for the same contractor employee within a twelve-month period for the purpose of extending the initial contract or for employment under a totally different contract for another three or four-week period, this contractor would now be considered “long-term” and must be cleared according to the long-term requirements as stated in this interim policy. 3. Intermittent Contractors: An exception to the above-mentioned short-term requirements would be intermittent contractors. a. For purposes of this policy, “intermittent” is defined as those contractor employees needing access to DOJ information systems and/or DOJ facilities or space for a maximum of one day per week, regardless of the duration of the required intermittent access. For example, the water delivery contractor that delivers water one time each week and is working on a one-year contract. b. Contractors requiring intermittent access should follow the Department’s escort policy. Please reference the August 11, 2004, and January 29, 2001, Department Security Officer policy memoranda that conveys the requirements for contractor facility escorted access. c. Due to extenuating circumstances, if a component requests unescorted access or DOJ IT system access for an intermittent contractor, the same pre-employment background investigation waiver requirements that apply to short-term contractors are required. d. If an intermittent contractor is approved for unescorted access, the contractor will only be issued a daily badge. The daily badge will be issued upon entrance into a DOJ facility or space and must be returned upon exiting the same facility or space. e. If an intermittent contractor is approved for unescorted access, the approval will not exceed one year. If the intermittent contractor requires unescorted access beyond one year, the contractor will need to be re-approved each year. 4. An individual transferring from another department or agency shall not be re-adjudicated provided the individual has a current (within the last five years), favorably adjudicated BI meeting HSPD-12 and DOJ’s BI requirements. 5. The DOJ’s current escorted contractor policy remains unchanged by this acquisition notice. Notes: FIPS 201 is available at: http://www.csrc.nist.gov/publications/fips/fips201/FIPS-201-022505.pdf Under HSPD-12, long-term contractors are contractors having access to DOJ information systems and/or DOJ facilities or space for six months or longer. The PIV-I identity proofing process, including initiation and adjudication of the required background investigation, is required for all new long-term contractors regardless of whether it is the current practice to issue a badge. The second phase of HSPD-12 implementation (PIV-II) requires badge issuance to all affected long-term contractors. For contractors in position sensitivity/risk levels above level 1, a favorable review of a credit check is required as part of the pre-appointment waiver package. In order to avoid a delay in the hiring process, components should request an Advance NAC Report when initiating investigations to OPM. Per OPM ‘ s instructions, to obtain an Advance NAC Report, a Code ” 3″ must be placed in block ” B ” of the ” Agency Use Only ” section of the investigative form. This report is available for all case types. For contractors in position sensitivity/risk levels above level 1, a favorable review of a credit check is required as part of the pre-appointment waiver package. 52.27-103-72 DOJ Contractor Residency Requirement (JUN 2004): For three of the five years immediately prior to submission of an offer/bid/quote, or prior to performance under the contract or commitment, individuals or contractor employees providing services must have: 1.

Long-Term Contractor Personnel: In order to be compliant with HSPD-12/PIV I, the following investigative requirements must be met for each new long-term 2 contractor employee whose background investigation (BI) process begins on or after October 27, 2005: a. Contractor Personnel must present two forms of identification in original form prior to badge issuance (acceptable documents are listed in Form I-9, OMB No. 1615-0047, “Employment Eligibility Verification,” and at least one document must be a valid State or Federal government-issued picture ID); b. Contractor Personnel must appear in person at least once before a DOJ official who is responsible for checking the identification documents. This identity proofing must be completed sometime during the clearance process but prior to badge issuance and must be documented by the DOJ official; c. Contractor Personnel must undergo a BI commensurate with the designated risk level associated with the duties of each position. Outlined below are the minimum BI requirements for each risk level: High Risk – Background Investigation (5 year scope) Moderate Risk – Limited Background Investigation (LBI) or Minimum Background Investigation (MBI) Low Risk – National Agency Check with Inquiries (NACI) investigation d.

Badge re-validation will occur once the investigation is completed and favorably adjudicated. If the BI results so justify, badges issued under these procedures will be suspended or revoked. 2. Short-Term Contractor Personnel: It is the policy of the DOJ that short-term contractors having access to DOJ information systems and/or DOJ facilities or space for six months or fewer are subject to the identity proofing requirements listed in items 1a. and 1b. above. The pre-appointment waiver requirements for short-term contractors are: a. Favorable review of the security questionnaire form; b. Favorable fingerprint results; c. Favorable credit report, if required; 5 and d. Waiver request memorandum indicating both the position sensitivity/risk level and the duration of the appointment. The commensurate BI does not need to be initiated. A badge may be issued following approval of the above waiver requirements and the badge will expire six months from the date of issuance. This process can only be used once for a short-term contractor in a twelve month period. This will ensure that any consecutive short-term appointments are subject to the full PIV-I identity proofing process. For example, if a contractor employee requires daily access for a three or four-week period, this contractor would be cleared according to the above short-term requirements. However, if a second request is submitted for the same contractor employee within a twelve-month period for the purpose of extending the initial contract or for employment under a totally different contract for another three or four-week period, this contractor would now be considered “long-term” and must be cleared according to the long-term requirements as stated in this interim policy. 3. Intermittent Contractors: An exception to the above-mentioned short-term requirements would be intermittent contractors. a. For purposes of this policy, “intermittent” is defined as those contractor employees needing access to DOJ information systems and/or DOJ facilities or space for a maximum of one day per week, regardless of the duration of the required intermittent access. For example, the water delivery contractor that delivers water one time each week and is working on a one-year contract. b. Contractors requiring intermittent access should follow the Department’s escort policy. Please reference the August 11, 2004, and January 29, 2001, Department Security Officer policy memoranda that conveys the requirements for contractor facility escorted access. c. Due to extenuating circumstances, if a component requests unescorted access or DOJ IT system access for an intermittent contractor, the same pre-employment background investigation waiver requirements that apply to short-term contractors are required. d. If an intermittent contractor is approved for unescorted access, the contractor will only be issued a daily badge. The daily badge will be issued upon entrance into a DOJ facility or space and must be returned upon exiting the same facility or space. e. If an intermittent contractor is approved for unescorted access, the approval will not exceed one year. If the intermittent contractor requires unescorted access beyond one year, the contractor will need to be re-approved each year. 4. An individual transferring from another department or agency shall not be re-adjudicated provided the individual has a current (within the last five years), favorably adjudicated BI meeting HSPD-12 and DOJ’s BI requirements. 5. The DOJ’s current escorted contractor policy remains unchanged by this acquisition notice. Notes: 1. FIPS 201 is available at: http://www.csrc.nist.gov/publications/fips/fips201/FIPS-201-022505.pdf 2. Under HSPD-12, long-term contractors are contractors having access to DOJ information systems and/or DOJ facilities or space for six months or longer. The PIV-I identity proofing process, including initiation and adjudication of the required background investigation, is required for all new long-term contractors regardless of whether it is the current practice to issue a badge. The second phase of HSPD-12 implementation (PIV-II) requires badge issuance to all affected long-term contractors. 3. For contractors in position sensitivity/risk levels above level 1, a favorable review of a credit check is required as part of the pre-appointment waiver package. 4. In order to avoid a delay in the hiring process, components should request an Advance NAC Report when initiating investigations to OPM. Per OPM ‘ s instructions, to obtain an Advance NAC Report, a Code ” 3″ must be placed in block ” B ” of the ” Agency Use Only ” section of the investigative form. This report is available for all case types. 5.For contractors in position sensitivity/risk levels above level 1, a favorable review of a credit check is required as part of the pre-appointment waiver package. Evaluation of Contractor Performance utilizing CPARS (April 2011) The services, although not directly supervised, shall be reviewed by Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) staff to ensure contract compliance. The contractor’s performance will be evaluated in accordance with FAR 42.15. Contract monitoring reports will be prepared by the Contacting Officer’s Technical Representative (COTR) or Contract Monitor (CM) and maintained in the contract file. In accordance with FAR 42.1502 and 42.1503, agencies shall prepare an evaluation of contractor performance and submit it to the Past Performance Information Retrieval System (PPIRS). The BOP 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 webptsmh@navy.milwhen the contract is registered in CPARS.

To effectively implement these programs, CBP requires the services of skilled and knowledgeable individuals (i.e., contractors) on an intermittent (short-term) basis. Short-term or intermittent is defined as a single assignment for 180 calendar days or less.

There are no known immediate requirements but new requirements for these services may arise at any time. This notice will remain open and the opportunity for individuals/firms to apply will continue until this notice is modified to the contrary or canceled. The previous announcement/notice on this subject published at http://www.fbo.gov 10/7/2011 (#CBP-IC-2011-1) is canceled and superseded by this notice. ASSIGNMENT EXAMPLES: The following is a delineation of the types of general services that ICs are expected to provide under their contracts, as required. A more specific description of services or tasks shall be identified and provided to the ICs upon selection and award of an order/contract. Note: While minor elements of performance under an order/contract may be performed in the United States (such as but not limited to meeting with program officials in Washington, DC or in other domestic locales, telephonic and/or email correspondence, etc.), primary performance of assignments is outside of the United States. 1) Training: The IC may be required to present customs or border control training based on an existing CBP curriculum.

If an IC declines more than two assignments, he or she may be excluded from further consideration at the discretion of CBP.

Other Requirements: 1) Prospective ICs may be required to undergo updated background investigations to obtain a SECRET security clearance from CBP. If for some reason a clearance cannot be granted, the prospective IC may be excluded from consideration from any assignments calling for such clearances. 2) For some specific assignments, foreign language ability may be a requirement for selection. 3) All materials provided to or developed by the IC under a contract are the property of CBP, may not be released to any other party without express permission from CBP, and are subject to return to CBP upon conclusion of the contract (or sooner upon receipt of a request from CBP). Travel: All travel will be under U.S. Government travel orders (separate and apart from the contract) and in accordance with applicable U.S. Government travel regulations. ICs will be reimbursed for all official travel upon completion of a travel voucher in accordance with an approved travel authorization. The IC will be responsible for purchasing airline or other common carrier tickets subsequent to approval of travel.

Travel time to and from the United States (and within the United States) is not compensable for pay purposes. CONSIDERATION of APPLICANTS: Both individuals and organizations are welcome to apply. Applications are to be submitted on an individual basis (one for each proposed IC applicant/person). Interested parties are to submit their qualifications in resume format, to be accompanied by a completed CBP – QUESTIONNAIRE FOR INTERMITTENT CONTRACTOR available at FedBizOpps (accompanies this Notice). Beginning with the date of this notice, all applicants must submit the most recent revision of the questionnaire (currently Rev 8-07) in order to be considered. In order to ensure that full consideration is given, applicants are encouraged to review the form OF-612, available at http://www.opm.gov/Forms/pdf_fill/of612.pdf. A copy of the 6/2006 version available at the above website at the time this notice was published is also available at FedBizOpps. Applicants are encouraged to review the information and topics covered on the OF-612 form and ensure that their resumes contain the same data elements that appear in that form. Applicants should NOT use the form OF-612 for the purpose of submitting an application, however. Resume packages (i.e., resume & completed questionnaire) will be accepted by e-mail only. INTERESTED INDIVIDUALS/FIRMS ARE TO SUBMIT THEIR APPLICATIONS AND RELATING DOCUMENTS TO: CBPIC@cbp.dhs.gov DO NOT SUBMIT TO THE CONTRACTING OFFICE STAFF. A representative of the designated receiving office (above) will acknowledge receipt of applications via email within 5 business days of receipt. If no acknowledgement is received within 5 business days after transmitting, applicants are encouraged to follow up by sending an email inquiry to the email address above to ensure receipt of their applications. If for some reason, the applicant still does not receive a response, the applicant is encouraged to follow up with the Contracting Officer. NOTE: Applicants who applied under a previous notice/announcement are encouraged to submit new application packages in accordance with the guidance and requirements herein, to include a completed questionnaire. METHOD of SELECTION/OPERATION, INSURANCE and PHYSICAL EXAM REQUIREMENTS: The CBP Office of International Affairs will evaluate the resume and questionnaire packages received fortechnical ability. CBP may exclude any applicant from consideration if it is unable to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of his/her qualifications from the documents submitted. Qualified and otherwise acceptable candidates will then be added to a Qualified Bidders List from which IC candidates are selected and may be awarded an order/contract for one or more assignments in the future as needs arise. CBP will select the most highly qualified and available candidate for each given requirement. Prospective ICs must be physically fit, able to perform the duties of an assignment and may be required to obtain a physical examination and certification that they are fit for travel anywhere in the world for assignments up to 180 calendar days. If selected for a contract award and CBP elects to require that the prospective IC obtain a physical, CBP will reimburse the IC for reasonable actual costs (not to exceed $500.00) by including this item on the order/contract, as described above. ICs are required to obtain emergency evacuation insurance coverage when traveling to foreign locations. The order/contract document will provide for reimbursement of reasonable actual costs for this coverage (not to exceed $500.00). In situations where an IC currently has emergency evacuation insurance coverage in place which will extend through the period of proposed performance, new coverage need not be obtained. In such cases, the IC must present written proof of coverage to the officer making the inquiry as to availability before an order will be placed. REQUIRED REGISTRATION @ http://WWW.CCR.GOV: Prospective ICs must be registered and have “ACTIVE” status in the government CENTRAL CONTRACTOR REGISTRATION (CCR) system at http://www.ccr.gov prior to issuance of an order/contract. CBP strongly recommends that applicants complete their registration as soon as possible after submitting an application. The process involves input of business information and registration with Dun and Bradstreet to obtain a D&B number. Applicants must include their D&B/DUNs # on the questionnaire (see above). NOTE: Applicants must follow up this process aggressively to ensure that ACTIVE status is attained. Registration data is valid for one year and must be updated at time of expiration in order for status to remain ACTIVE. ORDER/CONTRACT DOCUMENT, COMMENCEMENT OF PERFORMANCE, ORDER CEILING: Once CBP identifies a requirement and selects a prospective IC, a CBP officer will contact the applicant and inquire as to availability for an assignment. If the selected applicant is available and all requirements are satisfied, a CBP Contracting Officer will prepare a suitable order/contract document in accordance with the Federal Acquisition Regulation (i.e., FAR, viewable at https://www.acquisition.gov/far/index.html).The order/contract will be in the form of an unpriced purchase order awarded in accordance with FAR 13.302-2. The order document will contain the detailed statement of work for the specific assignment, including services required, estimated time required, country/destination, travel dates, materials and topics to be addressed, other applicable information, fixed hourly rates established in this notice, and a price ceiling. The Contracting Officer will submit the completed order/contract document to the selected IC for review, concurrence, and acceptance. The order will become a legal binding contract once the Contracting Officer receives written acceptance from the IC. The duration of contract performance shown on the contract document and resulting dollar amount constitutes a ceiling, beyond which the IC performs at his/her own risk. If needs arise which call for the IC to provide services for an additional period of time, the Contracting Officer will issue a modification which provides necessary additional funding and authorization for continued performance within specified limits. ORDER/CONTRACT INVOICING AND PAYMENTS: Payments are processed by CBP in arrears, in accordance with the Prompt Payment Act as implemented by payment terms incorporated into FAR clause 52.213-4. ICs shall be paid for services ordered and performed in accordance with the order, not to exceed the order ceiling.
