Instruction to contracting officers: Select “contractor”, “offeror” or “supplier” accordingly.

The contractor/offeror/supplier warrants that the certification of Greenhouse gas emission reduction targets and disclosure submitted by the contractor/offeror/supplier is accurate and complete.

The contractor/offeror/supplier must keep proper records and documentation relating to participation in the Greenhouse gas emission reduction targets and disclosure initiative. The contractor/offeror/supplier must not, without obtaining before the written consent of the Contracting/Standing Offer/Supply Arrangement Authority, dispose of any such records or documentation until the expiration of six (6) years after final payment under any contract resulting from the contract/standing offer/supply arrangement, or until settlement of all outstanding claims and disputes under the contract/standing offer/supply arrangement, whichever is later. All such records and documentation must at all times during the retention period be open to audit, inspection and examination by the representatives of Canada, who may make copies and take extracts. The contractor/offeror/supplier must provide all facilities for such audits, inspections and examinations, and must furnish all such information as the representatives of Canada may from time to time require with respect to such records and documentation.

Nothing in this clause must be interpreted as limiting the rights and remedies which Canada may otherwise have pursuant any contract or contract resulting from the standing offer/supply arrangement.

The contractor/offeror/supplier must notify the Contracting/Standing Offer/Supply Arrangement authority if they are no longer participating in an initiative.
