    The information relative to the place of performance and owner of 
plant or facility, if other than the prospective contractor, is a basic 
requirement when contracting for supplies or services (including

information prior to award. The contracting officer must know the place 
of performance and the owner of the plant or facility to (1) determine 
bidder responsibility; (2) determine price reasonableness; (3) conduct 
plant or source inspections; and (4) determine whether the prospective 
contractor is a manufacturer or a regular dealer.
    The information is used to determine the prospective contractor's 
eligibility for awards and to assure proper preparation of the 
contract. Prospective contractors are only required to submit place of 
performance information on an exceptional basis; that is, whenever the 
place of performance for a specific solicitation is different from the 
address of the prospective contractor as indicated in the proposal.
