1.) The Contractor certified that it has not directly or indirectly paid or agree to pay and covenants that it will not directly or indirectly pay a contingency fee for the solicitation, negotiation or obtaining of this Contract to any person other than an employee acting in the normal course of the employee's duties.
2.) All accounts and records pertaining to payments of fees or other compensation for the solicitation, obtaining or negotiation of the Contract shall be subject to Accounts and Audit provisions of the Contract.
This means simply that contingency fees are not permitted for federal government procurement and CFN has informed us that they follow these rules scrupulously--always have, always will. Esprit de Corps takes pride in the accuracy of its reporting and we apologize for implying that CFN would benefit from any contingency fee arrangement.
