  1. Thanks Don - I know that I have stated it in abstract terms but what concerns me is how/why the following is the case: FAR 52.215-8 - Order of Precedence - Uniform Contract Format As prescribed in 15.209(h), insert the following clause: Order of Precedence - Uniform Contract Format (OCT 1997) Any inconsistency in this solicitation or contract shall be resolved by giving precedence in the following order: (a) The Schedule (excluding the specifications).
