Key Personnel You need to make key personnel available for performance under the contract as long as they are employed by your business. The Contracting Officer must authorize key personnel changes in writing before any new key personnel begin work on a project. The government may require that you give a minimum of a 14-day advanced written notice to the Contracting Officer of any proposed substitutions of key personnel. This notice should: describe the reason for the proposed change; give the name of the proposed substituted individual with a description of educational and professional backgrounds; and include a completed background investigation questionnaire. Deciding whether to accept proposed substituted personnel is at the sole discretion of the government. Emergency Preparedness Contract requirements for emergency preparedness cover services that are essential or critical to the federal government mission. Key elements of emergency preparedness include immediate and effective measures to ensure the availability or use of back-up services or systems to (1) deal with the emergency, and (2) ensure uninterrupted support of the services or systems. These services or systems must be provided as long as the emergency persists. Protecting Sensitive Information The government must protect sensitive information during the course of project work, and has special requirements about confidentiality and data protection. Some key elements of protecting sensitive information are: Two forms of confidentiality agreements are typically required. The authorized representative of the contractor must sign and deliver a business-level confidentiality agreement to the Contracting Officer with the signed contract at the time of award. The contractor and all key personnel working on the contract each must also sign a confidentiality agreement no later than five (5) business days after starting performance and prior to receiving any sensitive information. Every federal government contractor (both prime and subcontractors) is expected to protect sensitive information including any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to which they have access. Sensitive PII may be comprised of a single item of information (e.g., SSN) or a combination of two or more items (e.g., full name along with financial, medical, criminal, or employment information). PII presents the highest risk of being misused for identity theft or fraud. You’ll need to comply with special contract requirements or risk loss of the contract, and you could face potential federal criminal charges if you don’t comply.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
