Assignment 5: Announcing Contract Award and Responsibilities of the Contracting Officers’ Representative

Due Week 10 and worth 170 points

Imagine that you are working on a project to purchase 5,000 electrical generators with an electrical capacity of three (3) kilowatts and will be used by the U.S. Army for battlefield communications systems.


Choose to respond to this scenario from a government or a contractor perspective. If you select government, then you will complete the assignment as if you are a government employee (or military personnel) receiving the proposal from the contractor. If you select contractor, then you will complete the assignment as if you are a contractor employee submitting a proposal to the government.


Write an eight to ten (8-10) page paper in which you:

1.Evaluate the requirements for announcing federal contract awards. Determine how these requirements apply to this scenario. (Dr. Vic’s Tips: here please re-visit information from Week 8 and include information on requirements to winning bidders and non-winning bidders / vendors. Also, since this is a defense contract – include information on the potential for notifying members of congress as well. Again, Week 8 DBs will help you in completing this assignment, additionally Compton Ch. 16 and 17 will help you as well).


2.Establish the responsibilities of the Contracting Officers Representative (COR) for this contract. (Dr. Vic’s Tips: DB 2 from Week 9 will help you here. Please address this question from the perspective of what the offeror or bidder/vendor (whichever you have selected) will see the COR duties as being. You may use information you used for Db2 Week 9 if you wish, however please try to add new information per, and related to, the assignment scenario for this assignment).




3.Evaluate the existing training and certification requirements for CORs in general. (Dr. Vic’s Tips: this question is VERY similar to Week 9 DB2, in fact you may use information from that assignment if you wish, please try to add new info per our assignment scenario and requirements. You can use THIS WEBSITE: http://www.acquisitioninstitute.com/2013___14_COR_RQMTS.php for information.Also, Ch. 19, p.p. 228-230, of Compton has a great deal of information as well.


4.Create a set of specific requirements for the COR working on the contract for 5,000 electrical generators. (Dr. Vic’s Tips: this question is also very similar to Week 9 DB2 – part 2, in fact you may use information from that assignment if you wish, please try to add new info per our assignment scenario and requirements. Please make sure you list at least five specific requirements and discuss each of them briefly: 1) why is the requirement important (what is the purpose of the requirement) and 2) what is the expectation of the offeror or vendor/bidder [depending on whom you selected]. You will want to use the following website for info (same as Week 9 DB2): https://www.acquisition.gov/sevensteps/library/ARMYcor-deskguide.pdf and look at Section 1, 3 (b) 1,2,3). Also, Ch. 19, in its entirety, of Compton has a great deal of information as well.


5.Assess the importance of safeguarding proprietary information. Propose two (2) ways that proprietary information can be safeguarded in this scenario. (Dr. Vic’s Tips: discuss the importance of keeping control of proprietary information from either the offeror (government) or the bidder/vendor [depending on which you selected], I will be looking for no less than three reasons on the importance of this type of info. Then offer two ways proprietary info can be safeguarded via the assignment scenario…for example, for the government, Section 4, 3(A-E) of: https://www.acquisition.gov/sevensteps/library/ARMYcor-deskguide.pdf discusses “Documentation” for the COR and CO. The document lists several important areas including: 1) information should be shared on a “…need to know” basis, and 2) timetables are disclosed for the destruction of files. You can use this info., and please expand on it, if you wish if you selected the government (offeror) role.

Use at least five (5) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources. (Dr. Vic: please use good sources; our textbooks, the FAR, acquisition.gov, and other sources that will yield solid information – stay away from Wiki type sites, or ask.com, or other open source sites.
