NOTICE OF AVAILABILITY
AGENCY: Office of Management and Budget, Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP).
ACTION: Notice of Availability of Draft Performance-Based Service Contracting (PBSC) Documents on Selected Professional and Technical Services.
SUMMARY: OFPP initiated an interagency project to develop generic guidance materials to assist agencies in converting selected professional and technical services to PBSC methods. Working groups, consisting of agency technical and procurement personnel, are developing generic PBSC documents that include: performance requirements, performance standards, quality assurance techniques, positive and negative incentives, and evaluation criteria for selected services. Draft documents have been prepared for software maintenance, studies and reports, aircraft maintenance, test range support, and surveys. After the documents have been finalized, they will be published as a reference source for agency voluntary use. We feel that public review and comment on the draft documents would provide us with valuable feedback and insight.
ADDRESS: Those persons interested in obtaining a copy and reviewing the draft documents should contact Ms. Margaret B. Christian, OFPP, New Executive Office Building, Room 9001, 725 17th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20503, (202-395-6803).
