15.406-1 Uniform contract format.
(a) Contracting officers shall prepare solicitations and resulting
contracts using the uniform contract format outlined in Table
15-1. The format facilitates preparation of the solicitation
and contract, as well as reference to and use of those documents
by offerors and contractors. The uniform contract format is optional
for acquisitions outside the United States, its possessions, its
territories, and Puerto Rico. It does not apply to the following:
(1) Basic agreements (see 16.702).
(2) Construction and architect-engineer contracts (see Part 36).
(3) Shipbuilding (including design, construction, and
conversion), ship overhauls, and ship repairs.
(5) Contracts requiring special contract forms prescribed
elsewhere in this regulation that are inconsistent with the
uniform contract format.
(6) Letter Request for Proposals (see 15.402).
(7) Contracts exempted by the agency head or a designee.
(8) Contracts utilizing the simplified contract format (see 15.416).
(b) Solicitations to which the uniform contract format applies
shall include Parts I, II, III, and IV (see 15.406-2 through
15.406-5). Upon award, contracting officers shall not physically
include Part IV in the resulting contract, but shall retain
in their contract file Section K, Representations, certifications,
and other statements of offerors, as completed by the contractor.
Award by acceptance of a proposal on the award portion of SF
33, SF 26, or SF 1447 incorporates Section K by reference in the
resultant contract. Contracts requiring a bilateral document shall
incorporate Section K by reference in the signed contract.
