    Both Jo and Chris are correct. Jo is correct in stating that the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) governs the process the federal government uses to acquire goods and services. The FAR provides policies and procedures for federal agencies to follow when acquiring goods and services. Chris is also correct in stating that the Department of Defense (DoD) has issued a supplemental acquisition regulation called the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation (DFAR). The DFAR provides additional policies and procedures specific to the DoD's acquisition process. Therefore, both Jo and Chris are correct in their statements about the contracting process.

    • A.

      Administrative Contracting Officer

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The Contracting Officer Technical Representative (COTR) does not require contract expertise. The COTR is responsible for technical aspects of the contract, such as monitoring performance, providing technical guidance, and ensuring compliance with technical requirements. While the COTR works closely with the Contracting Officer (CO) and may provide input on technical aspects of the contract, they do not need the same level of contract expertise as the CO. The CO is responsible for the overall contracting process, including developing and awarding contracts, negotiating terms and conditions, and ensuring compliance with regulations.

    Two security professionals - Jo and Chris - are discussing the process for including security requirements in a contract. Jo says that the FAR requires that a Contract Security Classification Specification (DD Form 254) be included or integrated into classified contracts.

    C. Jo and Chris are both correct.
    Explanation
    Jo is correct because the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) does require that a Contract Security Classification Specification (DD Form 254) be included or integrated into classified contracts. This form provides security requirements and classification guidance to contractors.

    Chris is also correct because by signing the Security Agreement (DD Form 441), a contractor commits to establishing an Industrial Security Program that complies with DoD 5200.1-M. This form outlines the contractor's responsibilities and obligations regarding security measures and the protection of classified information.

    Therefore, both Jo and Chris are correct in their statements.

    Two security professionals - Jo and Chris - are discussing the process for including security requirements in a contract. Jo says that every security requirement levied upon a contractor must be addressed in the contract. Chris says that security requirements outside of the NISPOM scope cannot be included in a contract.

    Correct Answer
    A. Jo is correct.
    Explanation
    Jo is correct because every security requirement levied upon a contractor must be addressed in the contract. This means that any security requirement that is deemed necessary for the project must be included in the contract to ensure that the contractor is aware of and obligated to meet those requirements. Chris is incorrect in saying that security requirements outside of the NISPOM scope cannot be included in a contract, as there may be additional security requirements beyond the scope of NISPOM that are still necessary for the project.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Two security professionals - Jo and Chris - are discussing the various roles associated with the contracting process. Jo says that the COR has the authority to make contract changes that affect contract terms such as price, quality, quantity, and delivery. Chris says that a Contracting Officer has the authority to enter into, administer, and terminate contracts. NISPOM 5220.22-M, Definitions

    • A.

      Jo is correct.

    • B.

      Chris is correct.

    • C.

    • D.

      Jo and Chris are both incorrect.

    B. Chris is correct.
    Explanation
    Chris is correct. According to NISPOM 5220.22-M, a Contracting Officer (COR) has the authority to enter into, administer, and terminate contracts. The COR is responsible for ensuring that the contractor performs in accordance with the terms and conditions of the contract. On the other hand, Jo's statement about the COR having the authority to make contract changes that affect contract terms is incorrect. The COR's role is primarily focused on contract administration and oversight, rather than making changes to contract terms.

    A Contract Security Classification Specification (DD Form 254) must be prepared for both classified and unclassified contracts. DoD 5220.22-R, C7.1.5

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A Contract Security Classification Specification (DD Form 254) is only required for classified contracts, not unclassified contracts. This form outlines the security requirements and classification levels for the contract, ensuring that the appropriate security measures are in place. Unclassified contracts do not require this form as they do not involve sensitive or classified information. Therefore, the statement that a DD Form 254 must be prepared for both classified and unclassified contracts is false.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "A Contract Security Classification Specification (DD Form 254) needs to be reviewed and revised every year" is false.

    Explanation
    The statement is false because a Contract Security Classification Specification (DD Form 254) is not the only authorized means for providing classification guidance to a contractor.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    A Contract Security Classification Specification (DD Form 254) is required for any contract that will require a contractor to generate classified information during the performance of the contract. This means that if classified information needs to be generated as part of the contract, the contractor must complete the DD Form 254 to specify the security classification requirements and ensure that the necessary security measures are in place. Therefore, the statement "True" is correct as it accurately reflects this requirement.

This collaborative approach ensures that the form takes into account the contractual requirements, program objectives, and security considerations. By involving these key stakeholders, the form can be tailored to meet the specific needs of the contract and provide clear guidance to the contractor regarding security classification requirements.

    Chris is also correct because even though the contracts are unclassified, contractor employees may still come into contact with sensitive information that requires some level of protection. This could include personal data, proprietary information, or other sensitive but unclassified information that should be safeguarded to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure.
