(a) Commitments beyond available appropriations.--The Administrator may enter into contracts for expendable launch vehicle services
that are for periods in excess of the period for which funds are otherwise available
for obligation, provide for the payment for contingent liability which may accrue
in excess of available appropriations in the event the Federal Government for its
convenience terminates such contracts, and provide for advance payments reasonably
related to launch vehicle and related equipment, fabrication, and acquisition costs,
if any such contract limits the amount of the payments that the Government is allowed
to make under such contract to amounts provided in advance in appropriation Acts. Such contracts may be limited to sources within the United States when the Administrator
determines that such limitation is in the public interest.
(b) Termination if funds not available.--If funds are not available to continue any such contract, the contract shall be
terminated for the convenience of the Government, and the costs of such contract shall
be paid from appropriations originally available for performance of the contract,
from other unobligated appropriations currently available for the procurement of launch
services, or from funds appropriated for such payments.
