(a) The term "Director" means the Director or Deputy Director of the Peace Corps; and the term "his duly authorized representative" means any person or persons or board (other than the Contracting Officer) authorized to act for the Director.

(b) The term "Contracting Officer” means the person executing this contract on behalf of the Government, and any employee who is a properly designated Contracting Officer; and the term includes, except as otherwise provided in this contract, the authorized representative of a Contracting Officer acting within the limits of his authority.

(C) Except as otherwise provided in this contract, the term "subcontracts" includes purchase orders under this contract. 2. Changes

The Contracting Officer may at any time, by a written order, and without notice to the sureties, if any, make changes, within the general scope of this contract, in any one or more of the following: (i) drawings, designs, specifications, or course content; (ii) method of shipment or packing; (iii) place of inspection, delivery or acceptance; and (iv) the amount of Government-furnished property. If any such change causes an increase or decrease in the estimated cost of, or the time required for, performance of any part of the work under this contract, or otherwise affects any other provision of this contract, whether changed or not changed by any such order, an equitable adjustment shall be made, (i) in the estimated cost or delivery schedule, or both, (ii) in the amount of any fixed fee to be paid to the Contractor, and (iii) in such other provisions of the contract as may be so affected, (and the contract shall be modified as may be so affected,) and the contract shall be modified in writing accordingly. Any claim by the Contractor for adjustment under this clause must be asserted within thirty (30) days from the date of receipt by the Contractor of the notification of change: provided, however, that the Contracting Officer, if he decides that the facts justify such action, may receive and act upon any such claim asserted at any time prior to final payment under this contract. Failure to agree to any adjustment shall be dispute concerning a question of fact within the meaning of the clause of this contract entitled “Disputes.” However, nothing in this clause shall excuse the Contractor from proceeding with the contract as changed. 3. Limitation of cost

(a) It is estimated that the total cost to the Government for the performance of this contract will not exceed the estimated cost set forth in the Schedule, and the Contractor agrees to use its best efforts to perform the work specified in the Schedule and all obligations under this contract within such estimated cost. If at any time the Contractor has reason to believe that the costs which it expects to incur in the performance of this contract in the next succeeding thirty (30) days, when added to all costs previously incurred, will exceed seventy-five (75%) percent of the estimated cost then set forth in the Schedule, or if at any time, the Contractor has reason to believe that the total cost to the Government for the performance of this contract will be substantially greater or less than the then estimated cost thereof, the Contractor shall notify the Contracting Officer in writing to that effect, giving the revised estimate of such total cost for the performance of this contract.

(b) The Government shall not be obligated to reimburse the Contractor for costs incurred in excess of the estimated cost set forth in the Schedule, and the Contractor shall not be obligated to continue performance under the contract or to incur costs in excess of the estimated cost set forth in the Schedule, unless and until the Contracting Officer shall have notified the Contractor in writing that such estimated cost has been increased and shall have specified in such notice a revised estimated cost which shall thereupon constitute the estimated cost of performance of this contract. When and to the extent that the estimated cost set forth in the Schedule has been increased, any costs incurred by the Contractor in excess of such estimated cost prior to the increase in estimated cost shall be allowable to the same extent as if such costs had been incurred after such increases in estimated cost.
