I'm sure we need to assign a COTR to the BPA, but do we need to assign one to the delivery order?
PGI says that you can waive the requirement for a COR if the contracting officer doesn't think he/she needs one, the order isn't complex and is under $150K. Essentially, the contractor officer will monitor the delivery order himself. Make sure to document the file why this was done. If you can't meet these criteria, then assign a COR.
PGI 201.602-2 Responsibilities.
(i) A contracting officer’s representative (COR) assists in the technical monitoring or
administration of a contract.
(A) For contract actions for services awarded by a DoD component or by any
other Federal agency on behalf of DoD, contracting officers shall designate a properly
trained COR in writing before award. The surveillance activities performed by CORs
should be tailored to the dollar value/complexity of the specific contract for which they
are designated. Contracting officers may exempt service contracts from this
requirement when the following three conditions are met:
(1) procedures; The contract will be awarded using simplified acquisition
(2) The requirement is not complex; and
(3) appointment of a COR is unnecessary.
