Director, Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy OUSD(AT&L)
The Department of Defense (DoD) relies heavily on the private sector to carry out aspects of the Department's mission. Because of the critical reliance on contractor support and the large expenditures involved, contract surveillance is vital to ensure contractors are providing quality services and supplies in a timely manner; to mitigate contractor performance problems; and to ensure the Federal Government (Government) receives best value for the Warfighter.
Contract quality performance is the responsibility of both the contractor and the Government. The contractor is responsible for carrying out its obligations under the contract in terms of quality, timeliness and cost. The Government is responsible for ensuring that services and supplies acquired conform to the quality and performance requirements of the contract.
Contract quality surveillance is an essential activity. In most cases, contract quality surveillance is the responsibility of the requiring organization -- the organization most familiar with the technical complexities and nuances of the requirement -- with assistance from the contracting office. The requiring organization prescribes contract quality requirements that the contracting office includes in contracts. Members of the requiring organization are designated specific authority by the Contracting Officer to conduct contract surveillance as a Contracting Officer's Representative (COR) in order to verify that the contractor is fulfilling contract requirements and to document performance for the contract record. These CORs function as the eyes and ears of the Contracting Officer and are a liaison between the Government and contractor when executing surveillance responsibilities.
DoD1 policy requires that the requiring activity/COR management participate in nominating CORs and assess their performance of COR responsibilities. COR management affirms that the COR will be afforded necessary resources (time, equipment, opportunity) to perform designated COR responsibilities.
This COR handbook addresses key aspects of contract quality surveillance and the roles and responsibilities of the Contracting Officer, the COR and the requiring activity/COR management. It is a comprehensive resource for the Contracting Officer, COR
