Contracting Officer’s Representatives (CORs) are tasked with monitoring contract performance on behalf of the agency’s Contracting Officer (CO).  This webcast will address the COR’s role and a number of tools that can be used during performance of the contract to ensure a successful post-award phase of the acquisition process.

What You Will Learn


The contract has been awarded and the Post Award Orientation has been scheduled.  The Contracting Officer’s Representative (COR) is the principle representative of the Contracting Officer (CO) for post-award management of the contract.  There are a number of tools available to the COR to monitor contractor performance.  These are six of the most effective tools to monitor contractor performance:

  1. Contractor Progress Reports
  2. Contractor Quality Assurance Plan (QAP)
  3. Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan (QASP)
  4. Earned Value Management (EVM)
  5. Performance Assessment
  6. Product or Service Inspection & Acceptance

The use of these six tools will vary based on the type and complexity of the contract, direction from the Contracting Officer (CO), and the experience and performance of the contractor.  But effective contract management depends on how the COR performs his/her role and how effectively the COR uses the tools available to monitor contractor performance.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
