This clause requires the contractor to respond within 30 days to a 
written initial determination from the contracting officer that

to this initial determination and notify the contractor in writing of 
any remaining significant deficiencies, the adequacy of any proposed or 
completed corrective action and system disapproval if the contracting 
officer determines that one or more significant deficiencies remain. If 
the contractor receives the contracting officer's final determination 
of significant deficiencies, the contractor has 45 days to either 
correct the significant deficiencies or submit an acceptable corrective
