2. Sensitive But Unclassified Information: The Parties are subject to document security requirements that apply to all information relating to the USSTRATCOM Replacement Facility Project (Project), including Project records and documents. The document security requirements for the Project designate all project records as Sensitive But Unclassified (SBU) information, including Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and For Official Use Only (FOUO) information. SBU information is information, including documents, that the loss of, misuse of, or unauthorized access to or modification of could adversely affect the national interest, and is intended to be kept out of the public domain. The document security requirements for the Project restrict access to Project information, including documents and impose requirements for how documents, including electronic documents, are secured, maintained and disposed of. The document security compliance requirements apply to documents produced in this litigation, including the handling of documents at hearings and at trial, and the disposition of documents at the conclusion of the litigation. The Parties at all times in the course of the litigation shall continue to comply with the Project information security requirements, including direction from USACE, as may be received from time to time. At a minimum, the Parties shall:
a) Require that all persons gaining access to the documents sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) in form satisfactory to USACE and deliver the executed NDA to counsel for KiewitPhelps before access to the documents is provided.
b) Secure all project documents and records produced in the litigation, including deposition transcripts and exhibits.
c) Store hard copies of documents and records in a locked container or secured area.
d) Store electronic documents and records on a designated, separate and secure hard drive and/or in a secure online litigation management database that can meet the requirements of Paragraph v. below.
e) At the conclusion of the litigation shred all hard copies of documents and certify in writing to USACE that all designated hard drives have been cleansed and wiped clean twice.
All document requests for Project records by any party in this litigation are subject to review by USACE. Documents designated by USACE, in its sole discretion, as potentially helpful to intelligence agents or terrorists in compromising the security of the Project buildings or planning an attack on the Project buildings shall only be presented in camera at any court proceeding or hearing and shall be filed under RESTRCITED ACCESS.
All SBU information, including CUI and FUOU information, shall be CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION under Paragraph 3, below.
3. CONFIDENTIAL Information. In addition to the requirements of Paragraph 2, the Parties agree that the following types of documents shall be considered CONFIDENTIAL to the extent that the producing party has a reasonable basis to believe the document constitutes or reflects:
a) confidential research, development or commercial information, including non-public financial information and/or non-public information related to corporate strategy, for example, and without limitation, documents relating to subcontracting strategy and the disposition of subcontractor employees;
