There is no federal or DOD-wide guidance on training requirements for Agreements Officer Representatives. Unlike FAR-based contracts where the Contracting Officer Representative's role is prescribed, there are a broad range of possible duties for an AOR that may be in addition to those of a COR or that are inapplicable. Thus, the AOR appointment letter needs to be tailored to the specific opportunity. There is also a variety of approaches to AOR training - some organizations have required the AORs to be COR-certified under the FAR-based requirements, where others have tailored training to a specific opportunity.
Does anyone know or confirm that the RM/BFM/Comptroller is the one to provide the budget line item data required for the additional reporting annual data call found in the OTA Guide for Office of the Under Sec of Defense for ACQ & Sustainment? Working this annual report and have a roadblock in locating the Budget Line Items. We have requested the data from the finance side but they do not know what we are asking for. I believe these are the budget line items addressed in the DOD FMR.
Any information about this subject (maybe we can share will the finance side if it is their responsibility) would be greatly appreciated.
