(d) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Article, the Contractor and the Government agree and stipulate that the question of compliance or noncompliance by the vessel owner with the Restrictive Charter clause is one of fact. Consequently, if at any time after payment by the Contractor to the vessel owner or his authorized agent of the aforesaid withheld twenty-five percent the Government should discover that the vesse) in question did in fact enter a Communist Far East Port before expiration of the sixtyday period provided in said clause, the Contractor shall be indebted to and shall pay the Government in full amount of said withheld twenty-five percent of the freight charges. Conversely, if at any time after the Contractor has finally determined that there has been noncompliance with the Restrictive Charter clause and has paid the withheld twenty-five percent of the freight charges to the Government pursuant to paragraph (b) of this Article, it should be conclusively established that the vessel in question did not in fact enter a Communist Far East Port before expiration of the sixty-day period provided in the Restrictive Charter clause, the Government shall reimburse the Contractor with the full amount of the twenty-five percent of freight charges withheld by the Contractor from the vessel owner.

$ 5D-1.000 Scope of part.

This part describes the method by which the Transportation and Communications Service implements and supplements the Federal Procurement Regulations (Chapter 1 of Title 41, Code of Federal Regulations) and the GSAwide procurement policies and procedures (Chapter 5 of the General Services Administration Procurement Regulations (GSPR)). In addition, it contains policies and procedures which implement and supplement Chapter 1 and Chapter 5.

Chapter 5D is divided into parts, subparts, sections, subsections, and further subdivisions as necessary. $ 5D-1.107–2 Numbering.

(a) Generally, the numbering system used in Chapter 5D conforms to that of the FPR (see § 1-1.007–2). Thus, a particular procurement policy or procedure is identified by the same number in the FPR, GSPR Chapter 5, and Chapter 5D, except that the first digit of the number is either 1, 5, or 5D.

(b) When Chapter 5D implements a part, subpart, section, or subsection of the FPR or GSPR Chapter 5, the implementing part, subpart, section, or subsection of Chapter 5D will be numbered (and captioned) to correspond to the FPR or the Chapter 5 part, subpart, section, or subsection.

(c) When Chapter 5D supplements the FPR or Chapter 5 and thus deals with subject matter not contained in the FPR or Chapter 5, the numbers in the group 70 through 89 will be assigned to the respective supplementing parts, subparts, sections, or subsections.

(d) When the subject matter contained in a part, subpart, section, or subsection of the FPR or Chapter 5 requires no implementation, Chapter 5D will contain no corresponding part, subpart, section, or subsection number. Thus, there may be gaps in the Chapter 5D series of part, subpart, section, or subsection numbers. In such cases, reference must be made to the FPR and Chapter 5 for policy and procedure applicable throughout TCS. $ 5D-1.107–3 Cross-references.

where the material has been published in the FEDERAL REGISTER.

(b) Any section of Chapter 5D, for purpose of brevity, may be informally identified as “GSPR” followed by the section number. For example, this paragraph would be identified as “GSPR 5D1.108(b)."

$ 5D-1.109 Deviations.

(a) The term "deviation" as used in this Chapter 5D is defined in the same manner as described in § 1-1.009-1.

(b) In order to maintain uniformity to the greatest extent feasible, deviation by TCS activities from this Chapter 5D will be kept to a minimum and controlled as follows:

(1) Requests for authority to deviate from Chapter 5D shall be submitted to the Commissioner, TCS. Such requests will be supported by statements adequate to disclose fully the nature of the deviation and the reasons for special action.

(2) Authorized deviations will expire 12 months from date of approval, unless extended or sooner rescinded without prejudice to any action taken thereunder.
