While there is no definitively correct answer, FAR part 15 states,
"FAR 15.204-2 -- Part I -- The Schedule.
(g) Section G, Contract administration data. Include any required accounting and appropriation data and any required contract administration information or instructions other than those on the solicitation form. Include a statement that the offeror should include the payment address in the proposal, if it is different from that shown for the offeror.
(h) Section H, Special contract requirements. Include a clear statement of any special contract requirements that are not included in Section I, Contract clauses, or in other sections of the uniform contract format."
One can make a case for either section. Section G is primarily focused toward financial data. Section H captured terms that do not easily fit in other sections of the contract. We are inclined to place it in Section H
