Does the PCO need to first include the Quality Inspection Clause, 52.246-2 before he/she can insert the higher level quality requirement in the -11 clause? Do both clauses need to be in the contract to allow the government to inspect at origin?
Open full Question Details
Including 52.246-11 in the contract does not preclude the need to also include 52.246-2. The -11 clause addresses a quality standard while the -2 clause provides the Government with its basic rights to inspect the supplies.
