7-1910.3 Continuity of Services. When difficulties are anticipated on either the part of the Government or contractors during the transition period from one service contractor to its successor, a clause substantially as follows may be included.


The Contractor recognizes that the services provided by this contract are vital to the Government's overall effort, that continuity thereof must be maintained at a consistently high level without interruption, that upon expiration of this contract a successor-either the Government or another Contractor--may continue these services, that the successor, be it the Government or another Contractor, will need phase-in training, and that the Contractor must give his best efforts and cooperation in order to effect an orderly and efficient transition to a successor.

In view of the above, the Contractor agrees, upon written notification by the Contracting Officer, to provide phase-in, phase-out (PIPO) services for up to sixty (60)* days after this contract expires. After notification, the Contractor agrees to negotiate in good faith with a successor in determining the nature and extent of the PIPO services, including a mutually acceptable detailed plan for PIPO operations. The plan shall design a training program and specify a date for shifting the responsibility to the successor for each division of work set forth in the plan, and shall be subject to the approval of the Contracting Officer. The Contractor shall provide sufficient experienced personnel during the PIPO period to insure that the services called for by this contract are maintained at a high level of proficiency.

The Contractor shall be reimbursed for all reasonable PIPO costs—those costs accruing within the agreed period after contract expiration which result from PIPO operations—and will receive a fee (profit) not to exceed a pro rata portion of the fee (profit) under this contract.

The Contractor agrees to cooperate with the successor, whether it be the Government or another Contractor, in allowing as many personnel as practicable to remain on the job in order to enhance the continuity and consistency of the services called for by this contract. Toward that end the Contractor agrees to disclose necessary personnel records and to allow its successor to conduct on-site interviews with its employees. If said employees are agreeable to the change and are accepted by the successor, then the Contractor shall release them at a mutually acceptable date and shall negotiate the transfer of their earned fringe benefits to the successor.

(End of clause)
* This limitation may be varied from 30 to 90 days.
