COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors (Public)

About This Report

The Government will take no action to enforce the clause implementing requirements of Executive Order 14042, absent further written notice from the agency, where the place of performance identified in the contract is in a U.S. state or outlying area subject to a court order prohibiting the application of requirements pursuant to the Executive Order (hereinafter, “Excluded State or Outlying Area”).  In all other circumstances, the Government will enforce the clause, except for contractor employees who perform substantial work on or in connection with a covered contract in an Excluded State or Outlying Area, or in a covered contractor workplace located in an Excluded State or Outlying Area.  A current list of such Excluded States and Outlying Areas is maintained at https://www.saferfederalworkforce.gov/contractors/.

President Biden announced that vaccination will be required for contractors that do business with the federal government in his COVID-19 Action Plan (See “Vaccinating the Unvaccinated”). The President also signed the Executive Order 14042 on Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors on September 9, 2021, which directs executive departments and agencies to implement this policy consistent with guidance to be issued by the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force.

On September 30, 2021, GSA issued Class Deviation 2021-13 to implement Executive Order (E.O.) 14042. The Deviation provides instructions on when a new clause, FAR 52.223-99 Ensuring Adequate COVID-19 Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors, will be included in solicitations and contracts and “contract-like instruments” (e.g., licenses, outleases, and tenders). Attachment C provides Federal Acquisition Service (FAS)-specific guidance for implementing GSA Class Deviation 2021-13. 

The Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) is here to help our customer agencies comply with E.O. 14042. FAS will bilaterally modify all existing contracts and “contract-like instruments” awarded before October 15, 2021, to include the clause at FAR 52.223-99, as applicable. For indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts, including all Federal Supply Schedule contracts and Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWAC) contracts, contractors must sign the modification by November 14, 2021 to be eligible for new orders. 

To help our customer agencies identify which contracts have been modified to include FAR clause 52.223-99, FAS will regularly update this [Ensuring COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors] Modification Status Tracker to provide the modification status (Accepted, Declined, or Pending) for FAS IDIQ contracts. This will include Multiple Award Schedule contracts, GWACs, and Multi Agency Contracts, once data is available. Additional contract attributes available in the dashboard include Contractor Name, Business Size, Contract Vehicle, and DUNS.

*Contracting Officers placing orders against FAS managed indefinite delivery acquisition vehicles should first ensure that the contract is modified to include FAR clause 52.223-99. If the FAS indefinite delivery acquisition vehicle includes the clause, the clause applies to existing and future orders.
