NAVY 5252.227-9216 Pre-award Identification and Assertion of Restrictions on Technical Data Pertaining to a Commercial Item and Commercial Computer Software Basic (Dec 2014) (Current)

This clause has not been authorized for official release. We recommend deferring to the text of the clause in your RFP or contract.

a. Definitions. Unless otherwise specified in this provision, the terms used in this provision are defined in the FAR/DFARS, as applicable.

b. Identification and Assertion of Restrictions.. The Offeror (including its subcontractors or suppliers, or potential subcontractors or suppliers, at any tier) shall identify all commercial technical data and commercial computer software that it proposes will be delivered or otherwise provided (including all Option CLIN’s, if exercised) with less than Unlimited Rights as follows:

    1. The Offeror shall identify and assert any restrictions for all commercial computer software, including Open Source Software, and commercial technical data (i.e., technical data pertaining to a commercial item) using the format provided in paragraph e below.

    2. If the Offeror is awarded a contract, the assertions identified in this provision, and this provision, shall be listed in an Attachment to that Contract.

c. Copies of Commercial Licenses. The Offeror shall provide copies of all commercial license(s) under which the Offeror proposes to deliver commercial technical data or commercial computer software. If the Offeror intends to deliver commercial technical data under the terms of DFARS 252.227-7015, Technical Data-Commercial Items instead of its own commercial license, the Offeror shall include DFARS 252.227-7015 in the Pre-Award table found at paragraph e below.

d. Use of Open Source Software Without Delivery. The Government treats Open Source Software (OSS) as a category of commercial computer software. If the Offeror proposes to deliver OSS while performing under the Contract, the Contractor shall follow the same rules as prescribed in this provision as for commercial computer software.

e. Table Format for Identification and Assertion of Restrictions. Commercial technical data/commercial computer software restrictions shall be identified as follows: Modifications

* For commercial technical data (other than computer software documentation) pertaining to items, components, or processes developed at private expense, identify both the deliverable technical data and each such item, component, or process. For computer software or computer software documentation identify the computer software or computer software documentation. The complete title and version number of the computer software should be listed. If Open Source Software (OSS), the OSS license and version number should be listed. If a version number is not available, the Contractor should state no version number. If commercial technical data is being delivered under the terms of DFARS 252.227-7015, then DFARS 252.227-7015 should be listed. If the OSS was downloaded from a website, the website address should also be provided. Enter none if all commercial technical data or commercial computer software will be submitted without restrictions.

** The functionality of the Commercial computer software should be described, as well as where it is being used within the larger computer software deliverable (if applicable).
*** If OSS is being used, the Offeror should state whether it has modified the OSS.
**** Corporation, individual, or other person as appropriate.
