US Government Contract Provisions from the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) / Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DFARS)

1. Stratasys acts as both a contractor and subcontractor to the US government in the sales of its commercial items.  As such, Stratasys is subject to the requirements of the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulations Supplement (DFARS).  When the materials, parts, and products (“goods”) or services, including the products resulting from services hereby ordered are for use in connection with a United States Government (“Government”) prime contract or higher-tier subcontract, the following FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses shall apply, as required by the terms of the prime contract, or by operation of law or regulation. The effective version of each FAR/DFARS provision and clause shall be the same version as that which appears in Buyer’s prime contract, or higher-tier subcontract under which this Purchase Order is a subcontract. In the event of a conflict between these FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses and the Agreement provisions, the FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses shall control. 
2. The following FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses in effect as of the date of the prime contract are incorporated herein, with the same force and effect as if they were given in full text. The full text of a FAR/DFARS provision or clause may be accessed electronically at these addresses: http://farsite.hill.af.mil/ or https://www.acquisition.gov/far/. In all provisions and clauses listed herein, terms shall be revised to suitably identify the party to establish Seller’s obligations to Buyer and to the Government, and to enable Buyer to meet its obligations under the prime contract. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and except where further clarified or modified below, the term “Government” and equivalent phrases shall mean “Buyer”, the term “Contracting Officer” shall mean “Buyer’s Purchasing Representative", the term “Contractor” or “Offeror” shall mean “Seller”, “Subcontractor” shall mean “Seller’s Subcontractor” under this Purchase Order, and the term “Contract” shall mean this “Purchase Order”. For the avoidance of doubt, the words “Government” and “Contracting Officer” do not change: when a right, act, authorization, or obligation can be granted or performed only by the Government or the prime contract Contracting Officer or duly authorized representative, for example in FAR 52.227-1 or FAR 52.227-2, or when title to property is to be transferred directly to the Government. If any of the following FAR provisions and clauses do not apply to this Purchase Order, such provisions and clauses are considered to be self-deleting. For the avoidance of doubt, those FAR/DFARS provisions which do not apply because the work are not performed in the US are considered self-deleting.  Seller shall incorporate into each lower tier contract issued in support of this Purchase Order all applicable FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses in accordance with the flow down requirements specified in such clauses.
3.  From time to time, the FAR/DFARS provisions and clauses may be updated by the US government through change in regulations, change orders to the prime contract, and new subcontracts.  Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, these supplemental terms may be updated to Supplier by written notice of Stratasys.
4.  The supplier shall report suspected violations of this Appendix immediately to the Stratasys Legal Department.
