37.3 Audit Settlements
If any audit reveals that Supplier is not in compliance with any generally accepted accounting principle or other requirement of this Agreement, Supplier and Gap shall promptly meet to review the audit report, and shall mutually agree upon an appropriate and effective manner in which to respond to identified deficiencies, and implement changes suggested by the audit at Suppliers cost and expense. If corrective action is suggested by an auditor or regulatory authority, and mutually agreed to by the Parties in accordance with the preceding sentence as a Supplier responsibility, Supplier shall implement such corrective action (at its cost and expense) within the period of time specified by such auditor or regulatory authority. If, at any time during or after the Term, a Permitted Auditor conducts an audit of Supplier regarding the work performed under this Agreement, and if the results of such audit find that Gaps dollar liability for any such work is less than payments made by Gap to Supplier for the work that is the subject of the audit then the difference plus the net present value of the difference as incurred calculated using an interest rate equal to * at the time of audit finding (Cost of Funds), which amounts shall be either repaid by Supplier to Gap by cash payment upon demand or, at the sole option of Gap, deducted from any amounts due to Supplier from Gap, whether under this Agreement or otherwise. If the results of such audit find that Gaps dollar liability for

Supplier shall not be responsible to pay the Cost of Funds as to audits conducted thirty (30) months or more after an overcharge occurred.
