48 CFR § 52.232-31 - Invitation To Propose Financing Terms.
(a) The offeror is invited to propose terms under which the Government shall make contract financing payments during contract performance. The financing terms proposed by the offeror shall be a factor in the evaluation of the offeror's proposal. The financing terms of the successful offeror and the clause, Terms for Financing of Purchases of Commercial Items, at 52.232-29, shall be incorporated in any resulting contract.
(b) The offeror agrees that in the event of any conflict between the terms proposed by the offeror and the terms in the clause at 52.232-29, Terms for Financing of Purchases of Commercial Items, the terms of the clause at 52.232-29 shall govern.
(c) Because of statutory limitations (10 U.S.C. 2307(f) and 41 U.S.C. 4505, the offeror's proposed financing shall not be acceptable if it does not conform to the following limitations:
(3) The terms and conditions of the contract financing must be appropriate or customary in the commercial marketplace; and
(d) The offeror's proposal of financing terms shall include the following:
(2) A listing of the earliest date and greatest amount at which each contract financing payment may be payable and the amount of each delivery payment. Any resulting contract shall provide that no contract financing payment shall be made at any earlier date or in a greater amount than shown in the offeror's listing.
(e) The offeror's proposed prices and financing terms shall be evaluated to determine the cost to the United States of the proposal using the interest rate and delivery schedule specified elsewhere in this solicitation.
