INSTRUCTIONS FOR CERTIFICATION
- 2 -
1. By signing and submitting this proposal, the prospective lower tier participant is providing the certification set
out below.
2. The certification in this clause is a material representation of fact upon which reliance was placed when this
transaction was entered into. If it is later determined that the prospective lower tier participant knowingly rendered an
erroneous certification, in addition to other remedies available to the Federal Government, the department or agency
with which this transaction originated may pursue available remedies, including suspension and/or debarment.
3. The prospective lower tier participant shall provide immediate written notice to the person to which this
proposal is submitted if at any time the prospective lower tier participant learns that its certification was erroneous
when submitted or has become erroneous by reason of changed circumstances.
4. The terms "covered transaction," "debarred," "suspended," "ineligible," "lower tier covered transaction,"
"participant," "person," "primary covered transaction," "principal," "proposal," and "voluntarily excluded," as used in
this clause, have the meanings set out in the Definitions and Coverage sections of the rules implementing Executive
Order 12549. You may contact the person to which this proposal is submitted for assistance in obtaining a copy of
those regulations (13CFR Part 145).
5. The prospective lower tier participant agrees by submitting this proposal that, should the proposed covered
transaction be entered into, it shall not knowingly enter into any lower tier covered transaction with a person who is
debarred, suspended, declared ineligible, or voluntarily excluded from participation in this covered transaction, unless
authorized by the department or agency with which this transaction originated.
6. The prospective lower tier participant further agrees by submitting this proposal that it will include the clause
titled "Certification Regarding Debarment, Suspension, Ineligibility and Voluntary Exclusion--Lower Tier Covered
Transactions," without modification, in all lower tier covered transactions and in all solicitations for lower tier covered
transactions.
7. A participant in a covered transaction may rely upon a certification of a prospective participant in a lower tier
covered transaction that it is not debarred, suspended, ineligible, or voluntarily excluded from the covered
transaction, unless it knows that the certification is erroneous. A participant may decide the method and frequency by
which it determines the eligibility of its principals. Each participant may, but is not required to, check the
Nonprocurement List.
8. Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of a system of records in order
to render in good faith the certification required by this clause. The knowledge and information of a participant is not
required to exceed that which is normally possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings.
9. Except for transactions authorized under paragraph 5 of these instructions, if a participant in a covered
transaction knowingly enters into a lower tier covered transaction with a person who is suspended, debarred,
ineligible, or voluntarily excluded from participation in this transaction, in addition to other remedies available to the
Federal Government, the department or agency with which this transaction originated may pursue available
remedies, including suspension and/or debarment.
