TR-09 Cost Estimating and Analysis for CORs. Initial FAC-COR training often lacks meaningful coverage of cost estimating and analysis. It notes that CORs must prepare an independent Government cost estimate (IGCE) as part of a procurement request and sometimes offers a sample format. It references that CORs have a role to play in cost analysis of proposals and may even acknowledge that they should focus on “types and quantities of direct costs, including labor.” Although initial certification training emphasizes contract modifications, it typically focuses on how to process a change under a contract – not how to determine a fair pricing adjustment.

This 2-day course addresses a major gap in carrying out the “cost and pricing” aspects of the procurement process. CORs recognize that “it must be done, but how?” This course explains the why, what, when, and how of cost estimating and analysis for new acquisitions (including task orders) and contract modifications. It is “hands-on” training, using examples to show how estimates should be generated and how they should be analyzed.

TR-12 Changes/Modifications for CORs. Most contract documents are not perfectly written as issued.

Modifications may be issued to other technical requirements (e.g., a performance schedule), to add funding, or for purely administrative requirements (e.g., designation of the COR).

This 1-day course provides tools and related information necessary to establish a performance measurement baseline (PMB), assess performance against the PMB, determine “how well” the contractor performs, and take appropriate action from initiating corrective action through future source selections.
