Frequently Asked Questions


Whether your task today is to evaluate a solicitation or contract for compliance with the FAR requirements, or you are required to perform a risk analysis or generate subcontractor flow down clauses, you will find this site helpful because it allows you to do just that without typing a single clause.

How exactly does that work?

Simply copy text from your document into our "Extract-Text Box" and all Clause numbers, together with their Alt designations and dates will be extracted and advanced for your validation and analysis. 

Take a peek of how it works using our Free Risk Analysis page at https://farclause.com/Analysis (Registration required)

Firstly, we share your feelings because here, at FARclause.com, we have all suffered from this condition -- and that is why we wanted to create a tool that will be useful to contract novices, as well as to FAR gurus -- you know, those who claim to know FAR by heart (they really don't). 

The beauty of this tool is in its simplicity! You don't need to type or re-type any clauses into spreadsheets or Word documents, and you don't need to use the FAR paperback or other hard-copy guidelines to cross-reference each clause for applicability. Our tool does all the analysis instantly - no need to type any clause numbers!

Yes, just copy the text from your RFP or contract and paste them into the text box under the Free Risk Analysis page.

Note: Our tool only extracts the following 3 parameters from your document: Clause number, Alt, and Date -- all other information is discarded!

Of course! Quickly answer questions related to your subcontractors’ unique requirements to dynamically generate a list of proper subcontractor flow down clauses.

Since all subcontractor flow down clauses originate directly from the prime contract, you will never have to worry about flowing down too many clauses or flowing down clauses that don't exist under your prime contract.

As a registered user you can perform a free risk analysis by pasting text from your RFPs or contracts directly into the text box under Tools --> Free Risk Analysis.

Once your clauses are extracted you will instantly see how your clauses are organized, which ones are outdated, and which ones are recommended for flowing down to subcontracts.

In addition, you can profile clauses for risk and departmental interest.

Note: Wen you mouse over any chart, you will see the count of clauses by category; when you click on each pie or bar, a list of applicable clauses will be displayed.

As a subscribed user, you will have the ability to save your list of extracted clauses into Contracts/RFPs records. You will also have the ability to edit your clauses by adding, deleting, or editing clause numbers, their Alts, and version dates.

You can compare up to 4 different sets of clauses side-by-side to see if there are any differences.

In the Analyze section, you will have the option to chose from varios reports, giving you the flexibility to print your clauses in full text, in full text with prescriptions, or in summaries, etc.

You can also annotate your clauses with “global” notes (e.g. based on your corporate policy or guidance) that are visible across your projects or “contract-specific” notes that are applicable to each Contract/RFP. You can quickly copy the “global” notes to your “contract-specific notes”.

Separately, as a subscribed user you will gain the ability to generate flow down clauses that are specifically tailored to your subcontractors. On the oposite, if you are the subcontractor, you can use this feature to check whether the clauses given to you by the prime contractor are applicable to your own work.
