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.
(4) Subsistence.
(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.
