9 Performance-based service acquisition (PBSA) Performance-based service acquisition (PBSA) is the preferred method of contracting for services and suppliesResults in better quality services and timely responsesPBSA is contracting for results, not just best effortsEssential elements include:Performance requirements described in terms of "what" the required output is, and not "how" the work is to be accomplishedPerformance standards or measurements, which are the criteria for determining whether the performance requirements are metAppropriate performance incentives, either positive or negativeSurveillance plan that documents the Government’s approach to monitoring the contractor’s performance
10 Performance-based service acquisition (PBSA) Performance Standards/Metrics:Reflect the level of service required by the Government to meet performance objectivesStandards may be objective (e.g., response time), or subjective (e.g., customer satisfaction)Service level agreements are performance standards that translate customer’s priorities into measurable performance outcomesPerformance standards use commercial standards where practicable, ensure the standard is needed and not unduly burdensome, and must be measurable, easy to apply, and attainable
11 Performance-based service acquisition (PBSA) Performance IncentivesMay be positive or negative; monetary or non-monetaryIf a financial incentive is promised, funding for the incentive must be committed at the time of task order awardExamples of monetary incentives include:Incentive feesShare-in-savingsNegative monetary incentives (can be included if the desired results are not achieved, deduction should be equal to the value of the service lost)Examples of non-monetary incentives include:Positive performance evaluationAutomatic extension of contract term or option exercise
12 Performance-based service acquisition (PBSA) Quality Assurance Surveillance Plan (QASP)The QASP is a plan for assessing contractor performance to ensure compliance with the Government’s performance objectivesDescribes the surveillance schedule, methods, performance measures, and incentivesThe QASP is included as part of the PWS and inspects the outputs, not the processThe level of surveillance should be commensurate with the dollar amount, risk, and complexity of the requirement
