Contracting Officer's Representative (COR) Level
Reviewed and verified by the
Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI) as meeting the training requirements for
FAC-COR Level I.
The Contracting Officer’s Representative (COR) is
a crucial link between the Contracting Officer (CO) and the contractor. In
effect, CORs are the eyes and ears of the contracting officer, ensuring that the
work the contracting officer has authorized gets properly done. In order to
understand the roles and responsibilities, CORs must know the acquisition
process and the various steps, as well as the associated terminology. They must
also be aware of ethical considerations when performing their duties. In
addition, each COR must recognize certain agency process distinctions. This
hands-on course provides the training necessary for FAC-COR Level I
certification and provides practical and relevant interactive course material
and methodologies. You’ll get an overview of the COR’s responsibilities and
explore the entire acquisition process, as well as the agency-specific
information you need to know. You’ll leave the workshop with a strong
understanding of the Level I COR’s job within the entire acquisition process—and
pave the way for your next level of involvement.
