What does the phase "will be used when awarding services acquisitions " ? Does it means that this procedure is used on new contracts and that existing contracts will use the old requirments?
DAU does not interpret Air Force policy. But, I would advise you to train/certify your new and existing CORs using the policy letter sent out on March 29, 2010 by Dr. Carter (USDAT&L) "DoD Standards for Certification of Contracting Officer's Representatives (COR) for Service Acqusitions". It says "I encourage your current and prospective CORs to complete training as it becomes available". All the training has been available on-line for nearly a year....so I would use the new training program. A DODI requireing this training and certification for all COR/COTRs in all of DOD is going to be released very soon. Go to the COR Community of Practice at the DAU website Or go on-line and take COR 106 and COR 222 to learn more.
