Contractors shall provide the certification specified in paragraph (c) of this section when submitting any claim exceeding $100,000.
The certification requirement does not apply to issues in controversy that have not been submitted as all or part of a claim.
The certification shall state as follows:
The aggregate amount of both increased and decreased costs shall be used in determining when the dollar thresholds requiring certification are met (see example in 15.403-4(a)(1)(iii) regarding certified cost or pricing data).
The certification may be executed by any person duly authorized to bind the contractor with respect to the claim.
A defective certification shall not deprive a court or an agency BCA of jurisdiction over that claim. Prior to the entry of a final judgment by a court or a decision by an agency BCA, however, the court or agency BCA shall require a defective certification to be corrected.
