(c) The Contractor must submit any request for use of other than U.S.-flag
vessels in writing to the Contracting Officer at least 45 days prior to the
sailing date necessary to meet its delivery schedules.  The Contracting
Officer will process requests submitted after such date(s) as expeditiously
as possible, but the Contracting Officer's failure to grant approvals to
meet the shipper's sailing date will not of itself constitute a compensable

of telephone notes, telegraphic and facsimile messages or letters
will be sufficient for this purpose.

this clause, provide the Contracting Officer and the Division of National
