Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) The Department may disclose confidential information to a contractor, if it complies with the procedure established under (b) below, and if:
1. The Department determines that such disclosure is necessary in order for the contractor to perform the work required by the contract;
2. The contract provides that the contractor and the contractor's employees shall use the confidential information only for the purpose of performing the duties required by the contract, shall refrain from disclosing the confidential information to anyone other than the Department, shall store all records containing the confidential information in locked cabinets in secure rooms, and shall return to the Department all originals and all copies of the information (and any abstracts or extracts therefrom, or any records containing any of the confidential information) when the confidential information is no longer necessary to enable the contractor to perform obligations under the contract, or at any time upon the request of the Department; and
3. If the claimant so requests, the contractor contracts with the claimant to refrain from further disclosure of the confidential information.
(b) Before disclosing confidential information to a contractor under (a) above, the Department shall notify the claimant of the proposed disclosure in writing, delivered by certified mail, return receipt requested, at least 14 days before making the disclosure. The notice shall state the information to be provided, the identity of the contractor, and the scheduled date of disclosure. If, at least three working days before the scheduled date of disclosure, the claimant delivers to the Department information sufficient to establish that the proposed disclosure would be likely to cause more than nominal damage either to the claimant's competitive position or to national security, the Department shall refrain from making the disclosure.
