Just signed a contract for a small project that is in part funded by federal funding. A clause in the contract included Certification Regarding Material Support and Resources to Terrorists .

The clause is three paragraphs long. I assume that this clause is likely in all contracts that have to filter through the federal system. We do not do a lot of government work at Stratum Group so I find the wording of contracts kind of interesting. I picture attorneys hashing over nuances of language and words that then become a requirement of all government contracts. Long arguments over sentences such as "Contractor will implement reasonable monitoring and oversight procedures to safeguard against assistance being diverted to support terrorist activity".
