(2) The delivery or performance dates for the supplies or services to be furnished by the Contractor under this contract are based upon the expectation that Government-furnished property suitable for use will be delivered to the Contractor at the time stated in the Schedule or, if not so stated, in sufficient time to enable the Contractor to meet such delivery or performance dates.
(3) If the Schedule does not state a date when Government-furnished property will be delivered, the Contractor shall notify the Contracting Officer in writing of the date by which he requires such property to meet the contract delivery or performance dates.

any damage occurs to Government property the risk of which has been assumed by the Government under this contract, the Government shall replace such items or the Contractor shall make such repair of the property as the Government directs: Provided, however, That if the Contractor cannot effect such repair within the time required, the Contractor shall dispose of such property in the manner directed by the Contracting Officer. The contract price includes no compensation to the Contractor for the performance of any repair or replacement for which the Government is responsible, and an equitable adjustment will be made in any contractual provisions affected by such repair or replacement of Government property made at the direction of the Government in accordance with the procedures provided for in the “Changes" clause of this contract. Where replacement parts are provided at the expense of the Government, the parts which are displaced remain the property of the Government. Any repair or replacement for which the Contractor is responsible under the provisions of this contract shall be accomplished by the Contractor at his own expense.
(g) Risk of loss. Unless otherwise provided in this contract, the Contractor assumes the risk of, and shall be responsible for, any loss or damage to Goverment property provided under this contract upon its delivery to him or any of his subcontractors or upon passage of title thereto to the Government as provided in paragraph (d) hereof, except for reasonable wear and tear and except to the entent that such property is justifiably consumed in the performance of this contract.

(i) Final accounting and disposition of Government property. Upon the completion of this contract, or at such earlier dates as may be fixed by the Contracting Officer, the Contractor shall submit, in a form acceptable to the Contracting Officer, inventory schedules covering all items of Government property not justifiably consumed in the performance of this contract (including any resulting scrap) or not theretofore delivered to the Government, and shall prepare for shipment, deliver f.o.b. origin (unless otherwise provided in the contract), or dispose of the Government property, as
may be directed or authorized by the Contracting Officer. The net proceeds of any such disposal shall be credited to the contract price or shall be paid in such other manner as the Contracting Officer may direct.
(j) Notification. The Contractor shall notify the Contracting Officer as soon as Government-furnished property is no longer required for performance of the contract.

NOTE: If this contract is with other than a United States firm or individual, the terms “Government” or “Government-furnished", wherever they appear in the text, are defined as meaning “United States Government."
(End of clause) (b) In negotiated fixed-price contracts, when the Contracting Officer determines it inappropriate to place li. ability on the contractor for loss, destruction, or damage to Governmentfurnished property (e.g., where the cost of insurance against the potential liability is so high as to be unjustified when the value of the property is compared to the contract price), paragraph (g) of the clause shall be deleted and the paragraph (g) set forth in ASPR 7-104.24(c) substituted therefor.
