Nothing contained in this clause shall impose any renegotiation obligation with respect to this contract or any subcontract hereunder which is not imposed by an act of Congress heretofore or hereafter enacted.

(d) The Contractor certifies that the contract price does not include any cost attributable to hull insurance or to any reserve fund it has established to protect its interest in the aircraft. If, in the event of loss or damage to the leased aircraft, the Contractor receives compensation for such loss or damage in any form from any source, the amount of such compensation shall be credited to the Government in determining the amount of the Government's liability under this clause: except that this shall not apply to proceeds of insurance received (1) solely as advances on insurance pending determination of Government liability, or (2) for an increment of value of the aircraft beyond the value for which the Government is responsible.

(e) In the event of loss of or damage to the aircraft, the Government shall be subrogated to all rights of recovery by the Contractor against third parties for such loss or damage and the Contractor shall promptly assign such rights in writing to the Government.

The Contractor shall cooperate with the Government in any suit or action undertaken by the Government against any such third party.

(f) Any failure to agree as to the responsibility of the Government under this clause shall, after a final finding and determination by the Contracting Officer, be considered a dispute within the meaning of the "Disputes" clause of this contract.

(g) The Contractor's rights under this clause are in addition to, and not in lieu of, any rights it may have under the Federal Tort Claims Act as amended (28 U.S.C. 2671, et seq.). However, any sum for which the Government may be liable under this clause shall be reduced by the amount of any award, compromise, or settlement for loss of, or damage to, the leased aircraft, obtained by or on behalf of the Contractor under said Act as amended.

PAYMENT (a)(1) For the performance of this contract, the Government shall pay to the Contractor-(i) The cost thereof (hereinafter referred to as “allowable cost") determined by the Contracting Officer to be allowable in accordance with

(A) Subpart 1-15.2 of Part 1-15 of the Federal Procurement Regulations as in effect on the date of this contract; and

(B) The terms of this contract; and

(ii) A fee determined as provided in this contract.

(2) The target cost and target fee of this contract are set forth in the Schedule and shall be subject to adjustment in accordance with (h) and (i) below. As used throughout this contract the term

(i) “Target cost” means the estimated cost of this contract initially negotiated, adjusted in accordance with (h) below; and

(ii) “Target fee" means the fee which was initially negotiated on the assumption that this contract would be performed for a cost equal to the estimated cost of this contract initially negotiated, adjusted in accordance with (h) below.

(b) Once each month (or at more frequent intervals, if approved by the Contracting Officer), the Contractor may submit to an authorized representative of the Contracting Officer, in such form and reasonable detail as such representative may require. an invoice or voucher supported by a statement of cost incurred by the Contractor in the performance of this contract and claimed to constitute allowable cost.

(c) Promptly after receipt of each invoice or voucher and statement of cost, the Government shall, except as otherwise provided in this contract, subject to the provisions of (d) below, make payment thereon as ap proved by the Contracting Officer. Normal. ly, payment of fee shall be made to the Con tractor as specified in the Schedule. However, when in the opinion of the Contracting Officer, the Contractor's performance of cost indicates that target will not be achieved, the Government shall pay on the basis of such lesser fee as is appropriate. Further, when the Contractor demonstrates that his performance or cost clearly indi. cates that he will earn a fee significantly in excess of target fee, the Government may, in the sole discretion of the Contracting Of. ficer, pay on the basis of such higher fee as is appropriate. After payment of eighty-five percent (85%) of the applicable fee, the Contracting Officer may withhold further payment of fee until a reserve shall have been set aside in an amount which he considers necessary to protect the interests of

the Government, but such reserve shall not exceed fifteen percent (15%) of the total applicable fee or one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) whichever is less.

(d) At any time or times prior to final pay. ment under this contract, the Contracting Officer may have the invoices or vouchers and statements of cost audited.

Any payment may be reduced for overpayments, or increased for underpayments, on preceding invoices or vouchers.

(e) On receipt and approval of the invoice or voucher designated by the Contractor as the “completion invoice" or "completion voucher" and upon compliance by the Contractor with all the provisions of this contract (including without limitation, the provisions relating to patents and the provisions of (f) below), the Government shall promptly pay to the Contractor any balance of allowable cost, and any part of the fee, which has been withheld pursuant to (c) above or otherwise not paid to the Contractor. The completion invoice or voucher shall be submitted by the Contractor promptly following completion of the work under this contract but in no event later than one (1) year (or such longer period as the Contracting Officer may in his discretion approve in writing) from the date of such completion.

(f) The Contractor agrees that any refunds, rebates, credits, or other amounts (including any interest thereon) accruing to or received by the Contractor or any assignee under this contract shall be paid by the Contractor to the Government to the extent that they are properly allocable to costs for which the Contractor has been reimbursed by the Government under this contract. Reasonable expenses incurred by the Contractor for the purpose of securing such refunds, rebates, credits, or other amoun shall be allowable costs hereunder when approved by the Contracting Officer. Prior to final payment under this contract, the Contractor and each assignee under this contract whose asignment is in effect at the time of final payment under this contract shall execute and deliver

(i) An assignment to the Government, in form and substance satisfactory to the Contracting Officer, of refunds, rebates, credits, or other amounts (including any interest thereon) properly allocable to costs for which the Contractor has been reimbursed by the Government under this contract; and

(ii) A release discharging the Government, its officers, agents, and employees from all liabilities, obligations, and claims arising out of or under this contract, subject only to the following exceptions

(C) Claims for reimbursement of costs (other than expenses of the Contractor by reason of his indemnification of the Government against patent liability), including reasonable expenses incidental thereto, in

penses incidental thereto, in curred by the Contractor under the provisions of this contract relating to patents.

Except as provided in (j) below, payments under the assignment and claims excepted from the release shall be subject to adjustment by reason of the adjustment of fee in accordance with (i) below.

(g) Any cost incurred by the Contractor under the terms of this contract which would constitute allowable cost under the provisions of this clause shall be included in determining the amount payable under this contract, notwithstanding any provisions contained in the specifications or other documents incorporated in this contract by reference, designating services to be performed or materials to be furnished by the Contractor at his expense or without cost to the Government.

(h) When the work under this contract (including any supplies or services which are ordered separately under, or otherwise added to, this contract) is increased or decreased by contract modification or when any equitable adjustment in the target cost is authorized under any other clause of this contract, equitable adjustments in the target cost, target fee, minimum fee, maximum fee or any or all of them, as appropriate shall be set forth in an amendment or supplemental agreement to this contract.

(i) The fee payable hereunder shall be the target fee increased by (insert Contractor's participation) cents for every dollar by which the total allowable cost is less than the target cost or decreased by (insert Contractor's participation) cents for every dollar by which the total allowable cost exceeds the target cost. In no event shall the fee be greater than -- percent, nor less than -- percent, of the target cost; and, except as provided in (j) below, within these limits such fee shall be subject to adjustment, by reason of increase or decrease of

total allowable cost, on account of payments under the assignment required by (f)(i) above, and claims excepted from the release required by (f)(ii) above. If this contract is terminated in its entirety, the portion of the target fee payable shall not be subject to an increase or decrease as provided in this paragraph.

(ii) The taking effect, after the negotiation of the target cost of this contract, of a statute court decision, written ruling or regulation which results in the Contractor being required to pay or bear the burden of any tax or duty, or increase in the rate thereof;

(iii) Any direct cost attributed to the Contractor's assistance or participation in litigation as required by the Contracting Officer pursuant to a provision of this contract, including the furnishing of evidence and information requested pursuant to the clause hereof entitled “Notice and Assistance Regarding Patent and Copyright Infringement";

(iv) The procurement and maintenance of additional insurance not included in the target cost and required by the Contracting Officer or claims for reimbursement for liabilities to third persons pursuant to the clause hereof entitled “Insurance-Liability to Third Persons”;

(v) Any claim, loss or damage resulting from a risk for which the Contractor has been relieved of liability pursuant to the clause hereof entitled “Government Property”.

Except as otherwise specifically provided in this contract, all other allowable costs shall be included in the term “total allowable cost” for the purpose of the adjustment of the fee in accordance with (i) above.
