So, my question is, do Clauses inserted in the basic contract transfer to the Task Order without having to re-enter them in task order? By simply stating "All other terms and conditions of the basic contract remain unchanged" suffice as stating that all clauses are carried over?
Yes. There has been a great deal of discussion on this topic. I believe that most if not all will agree that contract clauses required by statue automatically flow down to the task order and delivery order levels; and, clearly stating in the Task Order and/or Delivery Order that all terms and conditions of the contract apply should suffice rather than re-entering each clause. However, there is nothing that prohibits re-entry of clauses in TO/Dos; therefore, if a specific clause needs to be "highlighted" and/or your agency requires re-entry it is permissible.
