    Contractor will furnish all information and reports required by Executive Order No. 11246 of September 24, 1965, and of the rules, regulations, and relevant orders of the Secretary of Labor, or pursuant thereto, and will permit access to his books, records and accounts by the Contracting agency and Secretary of Labor for purposes of investigation to ascertain compliance with such rules, regulations and orders.

    In the event of Contractor's noncompliance with the nondiscrimination clauses of this Contract or with any of the said rules, regulations or orders, this Contract may be canceled, terminated or suspended in whole or part and Contractor may be declared ineligible for further governmental contracts in accordance with procedures authorized in Executive Order No. 11246 of September 24, 1965, and of the rules, regulations, and relevant orders of the Secretary of Labor, or as otherwise provided by law.
