Constellation provides goods and services to the United States Government, and therefore is a Prime Contractor. Per the terms and conditions of our Federal contracts, which are for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) items, Constellation and its subsidiaries (the "Constellation Companies") must include certain FAR clauses in all acquisition subcontracts.
For all applicable FAR Clauses below, the terms, "Contracting Officer", "Government", and "Agency" shall be replaced by the term "Buyer" and whenever the term "Contractor" or "Prime Contractor" appear, they shall be replaced by the term "Seller".
The term "Contract" shall mean contract, confirmation, transaction confirmation, purchase order, and any other agreement between the Buyer and Seller for the acquisition of goods and/or services.
