Contracting Officer's Representative (COR) Services
IBC provides federal organizations with comprehensive global COR services. The COR function is critical to the proper management of federal contracts.
Contracting Officer's Representatives (CORs) are federal employees designated by Contracting Officers (COs) to perform certain contract administration duties. As the CO’s representative, they ensure proper implementation of requirements, monitor the technical efforts being performed under the contract, and are responsible for the day-to-day administration of a contract, ensuring performance issues are verified and documented. IBC CORs work with the cognizant CO and ensure they operate within their delegated authority. Our CORs become very familiar with the requirements and communicate with the contractor to ensure satisfactory progress of the contract. They work closely with the government’s program managers and contractor personnel on a daily basis to ensure all parties are consistently engaged. IBC’s CORs keep the COs fully informed so that the contract delivers the goods and/or services required to ensure a successful acquisition.
