  1. (a) The contracting officer shall insert the clause at-

    1. (1) 52.232-33, Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer-System for Award Management, in solicitations and contracts that include the provision at 52.204-7 System for Award Management, or an agency clause that requires a contractor to be registered in SAM and maintain registration until final payment, unless–

      1. (i) Payment will be made through a third party arrangement (see 13.301 and paragraph(d) of this section); or

      2. (ii) An exception listed in 32.1103(a) through (i) applies.

    2. (2)

      1. (i) 52.232-34, Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer-Other than System for Award Management, in solicitations and contracts that require EFT as the method for payment but do not include the provision at 52.204-7, System for Award Management, or a similar agency clause that requires the contractor to be registered in the SAM.

      2. (ii) If permitted by agency procedures, the contracting officer may insert in paragraph (b)(1) of the clause, a particular time after award, such as a fixed number of days, or event such as the submission of the first request for payment.

        1. (A) If no agency procedures are prescribed, the time period inserted in paragraph (b)(1) of the clause shall be “no later than 15days prior to submission of the first request for payment.”

  2. (b) If the head of the agency has authorized, in accordance with 32.1106, to use a nondomestic EFT mechanism, the contracting officer shall insert in solicitations and contracts a clause substantially the same as 52.232-33 or 52.232-34 that clearly addresses the nondomestic EFT mechanism.

(c) If EFT information is to be submitted to other than the payment office in accordance with agency procedures, the contracting officer shall insert in solicitations and contracts the clause at 52.232-35, Designation of Office for Government Receipt of Electronic Funds Transfer Information, or a clause substantially the same as 52.232-35 that clearly informs the contractor where to send the EFT information.

Payment by a purchase card may also be made under a contract that does not contain the clause at 52.232-36, to the extent the contractor agrees to accept that method of payment. When the clause at 52.232-36 is included in a solicitation or contract, the contracting officer shall also insert the clause at 52.232-33, Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer-System for Award Management, or 52.232-34, Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer-Other Than System for Award Management, as appropriate.

  7. (g) If the solicitation contains the clause at 52.232-34, Payment by Electronic Funds Transfer-Other than System for Award Management, and an offeror is required to submit EFT information prior to award-

    1. (1) The contracting officer shall insert in the solicitation the provision at 52.232-38, Submission of Electronic Funds Transfer Information with Offer, or a provision substantially the same; and

      1. (i) Is not a part of the bid to be opened at the public opening; and

      2. (ii) May not be released to members of the general public who request a copy of the bid.
