I am a COR working for the USAF at WPAFB, OH. We are currently using an ID/IQ FFP LPTA contract (8A) for non-core IT services which covers the following categories: IT Project Management, Customer Support, IT Equipment Management, SharePoint Administrations and toolset development, VTC Support, Database development and administration, Telephone, Voice Mail, and Commercial Mobile Technology Management (CMT), Requirements Analysis, Information Systems Security (AFNet NIPR), and Information Protection and Network Security (Cybersecurity, NDCI Remediation, COOP). It's a huge grab-bag of tasks. Because the contract is FFP-LPTA, we are experiencing a significant gap in service delivery mainly due to staffing levels. I have filed a number of CCRs based on the performance issues. Our PoP is through Aug 2023 and when discussing this with the Contracting Officer, she recommended I not exercise the next option year. I can do this, but this requires me to do extensive market research and select another vendor likely by May 2023 to prevent a gap in services. Additionally this effort will have to remain with an 8A vendor. I would like to know if anyone has conducted similar market research recently and if there are materials you would be willing to share? Also, if anyone has any type of IT Services PWS you would be willing to share, that would be appreciated as well. I have pulled a few out of SAM.gov, but I'm looking for any other PWSs or SOWs to help me craft a better work statement.
I'm currently a Federal employee COR (~2 yrs in this role) for a service contract that provides equipment maintenance services for the Defense Logistics Agency. I'd like to know what federal certifications are available (if any) for CORs in my situation. Is there a certification that's recognized by all federal agencies? I read about FAC-COR level II, but don't know how to obtain it or what courses / experience is required.
Hello, I'm looking for formal guidance for Government Technical Representatives.
I COR on a $150M MY-IDIQ (FFP) for IT Services, where our vendors are working along-side, and in support of, their CIV counterparts - with vendor PM's as a go-between to mitigate PS risk. The scope is broad, and it's impractical for the COR to be the SME in technical areas, so we rely on Government Technical Representatives (GTR), dispersed across our org, to issue tasking to the vendor PM (after COR validation of said tasking).
I'm confident that ours isn't the only org working in such an arrangement; and am looking for established guidance I can shamelessly steal from.
Thanks in advance, Joe.
We have a team at Naval Post-Graduate School working on COR Process improvement, specifically in services. If you are a COR in Operational Services we would love to interview you. We would also need CORs who would be willing to give us feedback on iterations of "prototypes" we develop during this process. We only have about 4 more weeks left in this process. You can call me at 518 727 5584 or e-mail me at [email protected]If you would rather not do an interview I would ask that you send me your ideas for change supported by the underlying problem. What problems do you have in your job and what would be the ideal solution? Our sponsor is focused on tools. How would you like to see PIEE/WAWF/SPM/JAM change? Is there a better way to do business? Is there a new tool you would like to have? Thank you for anything and everything you are willing to provide!
I came from Program Management and I understand how to define cyber requirments during source selection. I have written a compliant Performance Work Statement, a guide and an audit program for the contractor Cybersecurity Work Force. I'm also working on metrics for system security posture using information from the existing systems of record (eMASS, Xacta, etc.).
I can also help with contractor compliance with DoD 8570.01-M, AFMAN 17-1303, AFI 17-101, AFI 17-130, and AFI 17-1203. I can help you create a template specific to your program. I'm happy to help and start the info exchange.
Qualified CORs are the answer to most of our cybersecurity problems and I can prove it. I've been working on this issue for 2 years and I have a program that will be 100% compliant with DoD & AF Cyber Guidance by Jan 2022. My contractor cybersecurity work force will be 100% compliant at the end of this month. I'm now applying this process to other contracts with great results.
I'm proud of the accomplishment, but I'm not bragging. I'm sharing this here to help fix our very real cyber security problem.
Is there any interest?
