In my addition, this is by far is the most vital criteria set in place for any contractor. We’re experiencing a time where security risk around the world is happening very often. While many government contracts are not as private as others, a vast number of government contracts often requires contracted businesses have access to sensitive information. This information needs to be guarded against the people or entities that try to do harm. There are several proposals to improve the overall guidance of contract provisions in the FAR, such as prohibiting certain types of personnel from contractors using sensitive information for personal gain. To address those potential security issues, regulatory changes to improve system and contract clauses in the FAR that various agencies could use to protect this fragile information.

Overall Rating: 12345 12345 Anibal good job on your research, keep up the good work Reply Quote Email Author 2 months ago Joseph Hash RE: Week 2 Discussion COLLAPSE Overall Rating: 12345 12345 Anibal, I agree that this might be the most important requirement for Federal Government contractors to follow. It is logical when thinking about someone in the federal government needing to have a high level of integrity but we do not always think about the contractors being held to the same standard. For instance, when we look at a business and how we view them do we think of their vendors or subcontractors? I can tell you that I do not even know where most companies source their products and materials. It is a good feeling to know that contractors and even their subcontractors are held to reasonable levels of integrity. Moving away from the sensitivity of the material that a contractor may be exposed to it is still important that we consider the contactor as a regular business. If the contractor has a history of not delivering products on time or delivering products that a below standards then this can be a key indicator that they have a low sense of integrity.

Great Post!!! Joseph Reply Quote 2 months ago Joseph Hash RE: Week 2 Discussion COLLAPSE Overall Rating: 12345 12345 Class, Contractor Requirements FAR 9.104-1 (b): Prospective contractors must be able to comply with the required or proposed delivery or performance schedule; they must take into consideration all existing business commitments, commercial as well as governmental. Number 4 listed in the book. I believe this is one of the most important contractor requirements. If the business or vendor is not able to produce and deliver products or services on an agreed upon schedule it can negatively affect their customer. For instance, if a Federal Government entity was to contract with a business to produce and deliver a specific quantity of systems (say laptops) and they business was unable to it could cause the Government entity to not be able to meet its delivery schedule (think domino effect).

    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.
