Mission Did Not Complete Contractor Performance Review - USAID Acquisition Regulation 742.15 (also known as 48 CFR 742.1502) - FAR 42.1502

The Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR 42.1502) requires agencies to evaluate and report on contractor performance for each contract exceeding the simplified acquisition threshold, which is currently $150,000. Furthermore, USAID Acquisition Regulation 742.15 (also known as 48 CFR 742.1502) 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 can 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.

General Recommendations

  • Complete all required contractor performance reviews in accordance with Federal Acquisitions Regulation and Agency for International Development Acquisitions Regulation requirements.
