Recommended Posts

The above is an IG report completed by a contractor. I thought the report provided some interesting information and posted it to the home page under Audits.

Thanks for sharing this.

I've only read the executive summary, but there aren't any surprises. It mostly validates what most of us already believe.

CORs reported that they typically learn how to develop requirements through trial-and-error in working with the contracting office. The majority of the CORs that we spoke with stated that they would benefit from additional guidance and training in this area.

Defining requirements is a skill which requires practice, monitoring/feedback, and further practice. I'm happy to hear there is trial-by-error, that's how you learn! You may find the training is never good enough without practice. If COR functions are an ancillary duty, sufficient practice will never occur.

Also, why do people pay for surveys which you know the answer to?
