As prescribed in 216.203-4-70(c), use the following clause:

ECONOMIC PRICE ADJUSTMENT-WAGE RATES OR MATERIAL PRICES CONTROLLED BY A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT (JUN 1997)

    (a) The Contractor represents that the prices set forth in this contract

      (1) Are based on the wage rate(s) or material price(s) established and controlled by the Government of _______________________ (Offeror insert name of host country); and

      (2) Do not include contingency allowances to pay for possible increases in wage rates or material prices.

    (b) If wage rates or material prices are revised by the government named in paragraph (a) of this clause, the Contracting Officer shall make an equitable adjustment in the contract price and shall modify the contract to the extent that the Contractor’s actual costs of performing this contract are increased or decreased, as a direct result of the revision, subject to the following:

      (1) For increases in established wage rates or material prices, the increase in contract unit price(s) shall be effective on the same date that the government named in paragraph (a) of this clause increased the applicable wage rate(s) or material price(s), but only if the Contracting Officer receives the Contractor’s written request for contract adjustment within 10 days of the change. If the Contractor’s request is received later, the effective date shall be the date that the Contracting Officer received the Contractor’s request.

      (2) For decreases in established wage rates or material prices, the decrease in contract unit price(s) shall be effective on the same date that the government named in paragraph (a) of this clause decreased the applicable wage rate(s) or material price(s). The decrease in contract unit price(s) shall apply to all items delivered on and after the effective date of the government’s rate or price decrease.

    (c) No modification changing the contract unit price(s) shall be executed until the Contracting Officer has verified the applicable change in the rates or prices set by the government named in paragraph (a) of this clause. The Contractor shall make available its books and records that support a requested change in contract price.

    (d) Failure to agree to any adjustment shall be a dispute under the Disputes clause of this contract.
