MetadataShow full item record
Contracting Officer's Technical Representatives (COTRs) are assigned by the contracting officer to provide technical directionclarification and monitor Indefinite Delivery Type Contact (IDTC) performance at the location where the contractor performs services. This type of service contract frequently has a vague statement of work (SOW) and can employ either fixed price or cost reimbursable delivery orders. The stability and effectiveness of the COTR work force which administers these service contracts is greatly enhanced by proper qualification standards and training; however, the more training philosophy is only one way to reinstate the intent of the COTR program. This study will examine current Department of the Navy (DON) and Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP) policies, guidance, and practices pertaining to the implementation of the COTR work force in the administration of IDTCs and suggest ways the program can be improved at West Coast Navy Field Contracting System (NFCS) activities.
