Part Number: 2109

Life Insurance Federal Acquisition Regulations

Subpart 2109.4 - Debarment, Suspension, and Ineligibility

2109.408 Certification regarding debarment, suspension, proposed debarment and other responsibility matters.

FAR subpart 9.4 is implemented by changing the FAR offeror's certification at FAR 52.209-5 (which is part of a solicitation) to a pre-contract certificate and a contract clause. These provisions reflect the FEGLI Program's statutory exemption from competitive bidding (5 U.S.C. 8709), which obviates the issuance of solicitations.

2109.409 Certification and contract clause.

(a) The contracting officer may require the precontract certificate in 2152.209-70 to be filed prior to or during negotiations.

(b) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at 2152.209-71 in all FEGLI Program contracts.
