To have and to hold, for the term commencing on October 1, 2008 and continuing though September 30, 2018 inclusive, PROVIDED, that adequate appropriations are available from year to year for the payment of rentals.
The Government shall pay the Lessor rental for the premises in the amount of $11,500.00 per year during the lease period. Payments shall be made in arrears at the end of each year without the submission of invoices or vouchers.
The payments shall be made to: County of San Mateo and sent to: San Mateo County Department of Parks, 455 County Center, 4th Floor, Redwood City, CA 94063-1663 or directly deposited in accordance with the Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) Payment clause in this lease. Payments shall be considered paid on the day a check is dated or an electronic funds transfer is made.
4. PAYMENT BY ELECTRONIC FUND TRANSFER:
(a) Method of payment.
1. All payments by the Government under this contract will be made by electronic funds transfer (EFT), except as provided in paragraph (a) (2) or (a) (3) of this clause.
As used in this clause, the term "EFT" refers to the funds transfer and may also include the payment information transfer. Payment information transfer refers to the payment information normally sent with a payment to assist the contractor in associating the payment to specific contracts.
2. In the event the Government is unable to release one or more payments by EFT, the Contractor agrees to either¿
a. Accept payment by check or
b. Request the Government to extend the payment due date until such time as the Government can make payment by EFT (but see paragraph (d) of this clause).
3. In the event that the Contractor is granted a waiver from EFT under the exceptions as provided for in FAA AMS Section T3.3.1.A-7, the Government payments will be made by check. A waiver from EFT is not permanent, and the Contractor must register for EFT when the circumstances that justified the waiver change.
(b) Contractor's EFT information. The Government will make payment to the Contractor using the EFT information contained in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database. In the event that the EFT information changes, the Contractor will be responsible for providing the updated information to the CCR database (Reference Clause, "Central Contractor Registration - Real Property"). If the Contractor is granted an exemption from CCR, the contractor will follow the requirements of alternate clause "Contractor Payment Information - Non-CCR".
(c) Mechanisms for EFT payment. The Government may make payment by EFT through either the Automated Clearing House (ACH) network, subject to the rules of the National Automated Clearing House Association, or the Fedwire Transfer System. The rules governing Federal payments through the ACH are contained in 31 CFR Part 210.
(d) Suspension of payment. If the Contractor's EFT information in the CCR database is incorrect, then the Government is not required to make payments to the Contractor under this contract until correct EFT information is entered into the CCR database, and any invoice or contract financing request submitted during this period of noncompliance will be deemed not to be a proper invoice for the purpose of prompt payment under this contract. In such instances, the late interest payment terms of the contract regarding notice of an improper invoice and delays in accrual of interest penalties apply.
(e) Liability for incomplete or erroneous transfers.
(1) If an incomplete or erroneous transfer occurs because the Government used the Contractor's EFT information incorrectly, the Government remains responsible for,
(i) Making a correct payment;
(ii) Paying any late payment penalty due; and
(iii) Recovering any erroneously directed funds.
(2) If an incomplete or erroneous transfer occurs because the Contractor's EFT information was incorrect, or was revised within 30 days of Government release of the EFT payment transaction instruction to the Federal Reserve System, and,
(i) If the funds are no longer under the control of the payment office, the Government is deemed to have made payment and the Contractor is responsible for recovery of any erroneously directed funds; or
(ii) If the funds remain under the control of the payment office, the Government will make payment under the provisions of paragraph (d)) "Suspension of Payment".
(f) EFT and payment terms. A payment will be deemed to have been made in a timely manner in accordance with the payment terms of this contract if, in the EFT payment transaction instruction released to the Federal Reserve System, the date specified for settlement of the payment is on or before the payment due date, provided the specified payment date is a valid date under the rules of the Federal Reserve System.
(g) EFT and assignment of claims. If the Contractor assigns the proceeds of this contract, as provided for in the assignment of claims terms of this contract, the Contractor will require that the assignee register separately in the CCR database and that the assignee agree that payments will be made by EFT in accordance with the terms of this clause. The requirements of this clause will apply to the assignee as if it were the Contractor. EFT information that shows the ultimate recipient of the transfer to be other than the Contractor or the CCR registered assignee is incorrect EFT information within the meaning of paragraph (d) "Suspension of Payment" clause.
(h) EFT and Change of Name or Ownership Changes. If the Contractor transfers ownership of the property under lease or changes its business name, it will follow the requirements of section (g) of clause, "Central Contractor Registration - Real Property".
(i) Liability for change of EFT information by financial agent. The Government is not liable for errors resulting from changes to EFT information made by the Contractor's financial agent.
(j) Payment information. The accounting office will forward to the Contractor available payment information that is suitable for transmission as of the date of release of the EFT instruction to the Federal Reserve System. The Government may request the Contractor to designate a desired format and method(s) for delivery of payment information from a list of formats and methods the payment office is capable of executing. However, the Government does not guarantee that any particular format or method of delivery is available at any particular payment office and retains the latitude to use the format and delivery method most convenient to the Government. The Contractor can obtain detailed payment information by registering for the US Treasury PAID system.
This can be done on the internet by logging onto the website: https://fmsapps.treas.gov/paid/. If the Government makes payment by check in accordance with paragraph (a) of this clause, the Government will mail the payment information to the remittance address contained in the contract and CCR database.
6A.CENTRAL CONTRACTOR REGISTRATION - REAL PROPERTY:
The FAA uses the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system as the primary means to maintain Contractor information required for payment under any FAA contract.
(a) Definitions. As used in this clause for:
"Central Contractor Registration (CCR) database" means the primary Government repository for Contractor information required for the conduct of business with the Government.
"Contractor" is synonymous with "Lessor" for real property leases or other contracts
"Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number" means the 9-digit number assigned by Dun and Bradstreet, Inc. (D&B) to identify unique business entities.
"Data Universal Numbering System +4 (DUNS+4) number" means the DUNS number assigned by D&B plus a 4-character suffix that may be assigned by a business concern. (D&B has no affiliation with this 4-character suffix.) This 4-character suffix may be assigned at the discretion of the business concern to establish additional CCR records for identifying alternative Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) accounts for the same parent concern.
"Registered in the CCR database" means that the Contractor has entered all mandatory information, including the DUNS number or the DUNS+4 number, into the CCR database.
(b) By submission of an offer, the offeror acknowledges that:
(1) A prospective awardee will be registered in the CCR database prior to award, during performance, and through final payment.
(2) The offeror will enter, in the space provided on the clause, Contractor Identification Number, Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number - Real Property, the offerors DUNS or DUNS+4 number that identifies the offerors name and address exactly as stated in the offer. The DUNS number will be used by the Contracting Officer to verify that the offeror is registered in the CCR database.
(c) If the offeror does not have a DUNS number, it will contact Dun and Bradstreet directly to obtain one.
(1) An offeror may obtain a DUNS number:
(i) If located within the United States, by calling Dun and Bradstreet at 1-866-705-5711 or via the Internet at http://www.dnb.com; or
(ii) If located outside the United States, by contacting the local Dun and Bradstreet office.
(2) The offeror will be prepared to provide the following information:
(i) Company* legal business.
(ii) Tradestyle, doing business, or other name by which your entity is commonly recognized.
(iii) Company Physical Street Address, City, State, and ZIP Code.

(vi)Date the company was started.
(vii) Number of employees at your location.
(viii) Chief executive officer/key manager.
(ix) Line of business (industry).
(x) Company Headquarters name and address (reporting relationship within your entity).
* Individual (non-corporate) Lessors of real property that are not normally in the business of leasing real property: You should consider your leasing to the Government as a separate business (usually a sole proprietorship) then provide the pertinent ownership information as an sole proprietor when providing this information to Dunn & Bradstreet.
(d) If an otherwise successful Offeror does not become registered in the CCR database in the time prescribed by the Contracting Officer, the Contracting Officer may proceed to award to the next otherwise successful registered Offeror, if the Contracting Officer determines it to be in the best interests of the Government.
(e) Processing time, normally 48 hours, will be taken into consideration when registering. Offerors who are not registered will consider applying for registration immediately upon receipt of this solicitation.
(f) The Contractor is responsible for the accuracy and completeness of the data within the CCR database, and for any liability resulting from the Government's reliance on inaccurate or incomplete data. To remain registered in the CCR database the Contractor is required to review and update, on an annual basis from the date of initial registration or subsequent updates, its information in the CCR database to ensure it is current, accurate and complete. Updating information in the CCR does not alter the terms and conditions of this contract and is not a substitute for a properly executed contractual document.
(1) Name or Ownership Changes
(i) If a Contractor has legally changed its business name, "doing business as" name, or division name (whichever is shown on the contract), or has transferred the assets used in performing the contract, the Contractor will provide the responsible Contracting Officer a minimum of one business day's written notification of its intention to:
a) Change the name in the CCR database;
b) Agree in writing to the timeline and procedures the Contracting Officer specifies to document the requested change in the contract. With notification, the Contractor will provide sufficient documentation to support the legally changed name then execute the appropriate supplemental agreement to document the name change provided by the Contracting Officer.
(ii) The Contractor's entry of the name/ownership change in CCR does not relieve the Contractor of responsibility to provide proper notice of the name change to the Contracting Officer. The change in CCR cannot be made effective until the appropriate documentation/ supplemental agreement is executed by the Contracting Officer. Any discrepancy in payee information in CCR caused by a failure to fulfill the requirements specified in paragraph (g)(1) (i) above, will result in a discrepancy that is incorrect information, within the meaning of paragraph (d) Suspension of Payment of the electronic funds transfer (EFT) clause of this contract.
(2) Assignment of Claims. The Contractor will not change the name or address for EFT payments in the CCR or manual payments to reflect an assignee. Assignees must separately register in the CCR database. The Contractor will notify the Contracting Officer and will comply with the instructions for submitting an Assignment of Claims notification. Information provided to the Contractor's CCR record that indicates payments, including those made by EFT, to an ultimate recipient other than that Contractor, without proper notice to the Contracting Officer, will be considered to be incorrect information within the meaning of the paragraph (d) "Suspension of payment" of the EFT clause of this contract.
(h) Exceptions to CCR. As provided for in AMS Procurement Toolbox Section T3.3.1.A-8, "Central Contractor Registration", certain contractors may qualify by limited exceptions to CCR waiver. If a contractor is determined by the Contracting Officer to merit justification of a waiver from CCR, then the contractor will provide initial payment information and any future vendor information changes to the Contracting Officer on the "Vendor Miscellaneous Payment Information" form, provided by the Contracting Officer. An alternate clause, "Contractor Payment Information-Non CCR" will be included in the contract and the lessor/vendor will comply with the terms of that clause. Having an exception from CCR does not excuse a vendor from EFT payment requirements, as required in the clause, "Payment by Electronic Fund Transfer - Real Property".
(i) Offerors and Contractors may obtain information on registration and annual confirmation requirements via the internet at http://www.ccr.gov or by calling 1-888-227-2423, or 269-961-5757.

The foregoing shall not be deemed to extend the Government’s liability beyond that existing under the Act at the time of such act or omission or to preclude the Government from using any defense available in law or equity.
22. USE BY GOVERNMENT
The herein described premises are leased to the Government for the purpose of operating and maintaining a VORTAC Radio Range Facility only and for no other use or purpose without written consent of Lessor.
The Government shall keep and maintain all buildings and improvements which may be erected and which have been erected on the leased premises, and rehabilitate or remove any buildings or improvements which may be damaged by fire, casualty, or other cause, and shall allow no nuisance to exist or be maintained therein. Upon the expiration or sooner termination of this lease, Government shall surrender the premises to Lessor in good condition, ordinary wear and tear and damage from causes beyond the reasonable control of Government excepted.

Said fencing shall remain of black, vinyl-clad, chain link construction placed in its current location or a location mutually agreeable to both parties.
