Steps to Performance-Based Acquisition
Solicitation/Contract/Task Order Review Checklist


USe the checklists to develop your performance-based solicitation, contract or task order, and to assist in determining whether an existing solicitation, contract or task order may be appropriately classified as performance-based. While DoD uses a 7-Step Service Acquisition process, this depicts an 8-step process that works well for Federal Civilian Agencies (step 8 is contract closeout).  This checklist is not intended to usurp contracting officer discretion or authority regarding how to structure an acquisition. However, the more an acquisition departs from adherence to the checklist, the less likely the agency will achieve the benefits of improved contractor performance and lower price that PBA can provide.

Services Performance Work Statement Writing Guidelines dated July 2015.  Clear, concise writing is the hallmark of acquisition professionals.  A written contract memorializes the legally binding agreement between the government and another party, and the performance work statement informs the contractor of the government's specific outcome expectations.  During disputes, the parties first look within the contract's "four corners" for interpretation.  Poor clarity, vagueness, and inconsistencies in work statement language often create analytical problems during source selection and contract administration.  These Services Performance Work Statement Writing Guidelines identify best drafting practices.  Date is July 2015.

INTEGRATED DATA ENVIRONMENT (IDE)/GLOBAL TRANSPORTATION NETWORK (GTN) CONVERGENCE (IGC)

The IGC program is a partnership between the US Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM) and the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). USTRANSCOM's Global Transportation Network (GTN) and DLA's Enterprise Business System have "converged" to provide DOD with an integrated set of networked, end-to-end visibility, deployment, and distribution capabilities. The end goal of IGC is to effectively support the Joint Force Commander's ability to make decisions based on actionable logistics information.

IGC creates a single source for HQ DLA and USTRANSCOM to access common, authoritative data, business standards, and information. As the USTRANSCOM ITV System of Record, IGC is synchronized with several other USTRANSCOM Distribution Process Owner (DPO) initiatives, such as Agile Transportation for the 21st Century or AT21.
