The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR 42.15024) requires the mission to evaluate contractor performance and prepare a past-performance report for each construction contract of $550,000 or more and each architectural services contract exceeding $30,000.
According to the regulation, these performance reports should be prepared at the time of final acceptance of a completed construction project or at other times in accordance with Agency procedures. USAID Acquisition Regulation 742.15 requires contracting officers to report on contractor performance at least annually.
Regular, comprehensive, and conscientious performance evaluations can provide the mission with information to make better acquisition decisions and serve as a significant incentive to contractors to provide USAID with superior products and services. Further, the U.S. Government Accountability Office has ruled that failure to properly document contractor performance information and make the information available for use in source selections for the same or similar items is a sufficient basis to sustain a protest of a contract award in a subsequent source selection.
- Complete all required contractor performance reviews in accordance with Agency procedures.
