(c) A certification that any of the items in paragraph (a) of this provision exists will not necessarily
result in withholding of an award under this solicitation. However, the certification will be considered in
connection with a determination of the Offeror's responsibility. Failure of the Offeror to furnish a
certification or provide such additional information as requested by the Contracting Officer may render
the Offeror nonresponsible.
(d) Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of a system of
records in order to render, in good faith, the certification required by paragraph (a) of this provision.
The knowledge and information of an Offeror is not required to exceed that which is normally
possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings.
(e) The certification in paragraph (a) of this provision is a material representation of fact upon which
reliance was placed when making award. If it is later determined that the Offeror knowingly rendered
an erroneous certification, in addition to other remedies available to the Government, the Contracting
Officer may terminate the contract resulting from this solicitation for default.
