Document C - Flowdown Provisions for Federally Funded Contracts

The University of Colorado has entered into an Agreement with either the U.S. Government, or another entity who has itself entered into an Agreement with the U.S. Government. That Agreement requires that certain federal contract provisions be made a part of any subsequent Purchase Order issued by the University of Colorado related to furthering the performance or deliverables required under that Agreement.
Where necessary to make the context of these provisions applicable to this order, the term "contractor" shall mean "seller," the term "contract" shall mean "this order," and the terms "Government," "contracting officer," and equivalent phrases shall mean "buyer." Seller hereby agrees to flowdown the applicable clauses to its lower-tier subcontractors, and agrees that the clauses are in effect between it and the buyer, as applicable.

The following provisions are from the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR), which are available online.
