  1. Vern, Now that's the direct approach! Thanks for checking with them. As for the USACE, I did find this document http://bit.ly/2jKs5yv which appears to be valid (someone higher up the chain than the contracting officer).

The email indicates the clause will be used "in all NEW solicitations (stand-alone, basic IDIQ JOC and associated task orders, basic IDIQ and associated task orders)".
