Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreements
 
Reports and Deliverables
Praxis does not normally sign non-disclosure or confidentiality agreements in connection with proposals. In appropriate circumstances, we may sign a reasonable non-disclosure agreement (NDA); a template of our standard NDA is provided for your review.
 
  Contract deliverables will be specified in the RFP. At a minimum, all Praxis subcontractors are required to submit monthly invoices and technical status reports.
Restrictive Markings
 
Government Property
Information marked "Confidential," "Company Proprietary," "Company Sensitive," "Non-Public Data," or the like will be treated as non-confidential unless it is marked with the following legend per FAR 52.215-1(e):
proposal includes data that shall not be disclosed outside Praxis or the Government and shall not be duplicated, used, or disclosed—in whole or in part—for any purpose other than to evaluate this proposal. If, however, a contract is awarded to this offeror as a result of—or in connection with—the submission of this data, Praxis and the Government shall have the right to duplicate, use, or disclose the data to the extent provided in the resulting contract. This restriction does not limit Praxis's or the Government's right to use information contained in this data if it is obtained from another source without restriction. The data subject to this restriction are contained in sheets [insert numbers or other identification of sheets].
The pages to which the above restriction applies shall be marked with the following legend:
disclosure of data contained on this sheet is subject to the restriction on the title page of this proposal.
  Subcontractors are responsible for controlling, protecting, preserving, and maintaining Government property and/or Contractor Acquired Property (CAP) received in conjunction with any contract awarded by Praxis. Requirements are listed in FAR Part 45 and DFARS Part 245 for contractors or in the Office of Management and Budget Circular A-110 for educational institutions.

Subcontractors are responsible for maintaining the official record of Government property received in conjunction with any contract awarded by Praxis. You must include compliance with this requirement in your proposal. Requests for Government furnished property must be clearly identified in your proposal. Praxis or its Government customer, however, are under no obligation to comply with such requests. Therefore, you should make provision for alternate technical approaches if Praxis or its Government customer is unwilling or unable to provide the property requested.

Subcontractors must complete an annual report of Government property using DD Form 1662, DoD Property in the Custody of Contractors. Annual property reporting should be for the fiscal year period ended 30 September, and the property reports must be provided to Praxis no later than 31 October of the reporting period. Note that negative reports are not required unless a positive balance was reported in the previous fiscal year.

ITAR/EAR Restrictions
 
Requirements for On-Site Contractors
The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and Export Administration Regulations (EAR) apply to equipment and technical data provided and/or generated under any contract awarded in response to your proposal. An export license is required before any information in the RFP can be provided to foreign persons or companies.
 
  Praxis subcontractors working on-site at the Naval Research Laboratory are required to comply with NRL's Requirements for On-Site Contractors
Non-U.S. Citizen Restrictions
   
Please be aware that the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) requires Praxis to obtain written approval from the Government Security Office listed in the Prime Contract before allowing any non-U.S. citizen access to: (i) information required to perform under our contracts; (ii) information generated in performance of the Statement of Work of our contracts; or (iii) an NRL or Government facility in connection with the work under our contracts. There are NO exceptions to this provision.
