Join us October 18, 2012 for a Performance Based Contracting Webinar. Presented by Stephen Gordon, Ph.D., FNIGP, CPPO, Old Dominion University, Dept. of Urban Studies and Public Administration, Norfolk, VA.
Many public entities use performance-based contracting to set up goods, services, and construction contracts that optimize value, mitigate risk, and benefit from fresh ideas and creative solutions that traditional contracting strategies blocked. When an entity issues a performance-based RFP, it does not prescribe how the good should be made, how the service should be provided, or how the construction project should be built. Instead, the entity sets forth in the RFP the outcomes it is seeking to achieve, and asks prospective offerers to respond with a proposal that tells the entity how the proposer would achieve those outcomes. The public entity awards the proposal that offers the best solution, based on the evaluation criteria set forth in the RFP. Of course, it is not feasible to use performance-based contracting for every acquisition. If you are interested in adopting this proven practice for your entity, attend this webinar.
At the end of this webinar students will be able to:
Define performance based contracting
Identify solicitations that would benefit from performance based contracting
Identify the key elements of a performance based RFP
