As a designated representative acting on behalf of the government during the contracting process, the contracting officer’s representative (COR) fills a critical role in the federal acquisition process, acting as technical expert and business partner to both internal and external stakeholders. CORs are responsible for keeping contracting officers fully informed on a project’s progress and must monitor, inspect and accept work performed under the contract.
This special program provides comprehensive training on managing contract planning, award and performance duties facing CORs. The course emphasizes the COR’s unique perspective on the contracting process, providing participants with guidance on the successful performance of the essential COR duties as well as the FAC-COR competencies identified by the Office of Federal Procurement Policy. In addition, the course provides CORs with the skills necessary for anticipating, identifying and solving contract problems. The COR Training Program provides CORs with everything that they need to become business leaders, build mutually beneficial relationships with contractors and ensure that the contracts that they manage provide exactly those products and services the government needs.
Note: Students who complete this course (and whose agency has established a single-course COR Level II certification policy) can be certified under FAC-COR by their agency career manager (ACM).
