2 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way Unclassified 2 26 Jan 05 Intro - Performance-Based Contracting Structure all aspects of the acquisition around the purpose of the work Set forth contract requirements in clear, specific, and objective terms with measurable outcomes Stay away from: –Specifying manner by which the work should be performed –Broad and imprecise statements of work

3 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way Unclassified 3 26 Jan 05 Intro - Performance-Based Contracting Describe requirements in terms of results required –Service result = change in state of affairs = condition you want to exist after the contractor has done the work Use measurable performance standards –Quality, timeliness, quantity, etc. Deducts - Specify procedures for reductions of fee or reductions price of FP contract when services are not performed or do not meet contract requirements Incentives – Use where appropriate, when they offer significant advantages

4 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way Unclassified 4 26 Jan 05 Important Term Service Object Initial State Service Process (Tasks) Service Object Final State Service Object – The thing that the contractor works on –A system, an individual thing, a person (e.g., student), an organization, a process, or information Student knows nothing about PBC Teach student about PBC Student gains new knowledg e of PBC System is not functionin g properly Repair the system System functions as it should

Does it need to be treated separately? What are the parts of these? Do they need to be treated separately? At each level of breakdown the parts must be mutually exclusive and collectively exhaustive of the next higher level. Furthermore, there must be no overlap among the parts at a particular level and nothing must be left out

7 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way Unclassified 7 26 Jan 05 Product of Step 3 – Work Breakdown Structure or WBS The WBS is the underlying framework of a PWS

8 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way Unclassified 8 26 Jan 05 Result of Work Breakdown Analysis For Official Use Only

9 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way Unclassified 9 26 Jan 05 Step 4 – Develop Performance Standards The Most Difficult Step! Performance standard = (Attribute of the service object that you want the contractor to change) + (a specific attribute description or measurement) –Floors must be free of all visible dirt and refuse –Each wastebasket must contain a clean plastic liner and be empty of refuse –90% of all incoming calls must be answered within three rings Develop a performance standard for each element at the lowest of work breakdown

10 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way Unclassified Jan 05 Step 4 – Develop Performance Standards For each of the WBS’ lowest level elements, begin the performance standard with: “The performance standard is met when...” Then continue the standard with one or more of the following methods of evaluation: -What you SEE, SMELL, HEAR, TASTE or FEEL is the determinant of acceptability [Maintain Objectivity of Evaluation Standards!]

11 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way Unclassified Jan 05 Step 5 – Write the List of Tasks Each task statement begins with a verb and says: Do this to this... Two parts: –Verb describing what the contractor must do. –Noun phrase describing the service object ENSURE THAT YOU CAN EXPLAIN WHAT THE VERB MEANS AND NEVER INCLUDE MORE THAN ONE VERB IN A TASK STATEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

12 NATIONAL GEOSPATIAL-INTELLIGENCE AGENCY Know the Earth…Show the Way Unclassified Jan 05 Step 6 – Write the Performance Requirements Summary Performance Requirements Summary Sample Performance Standards Task #Task Description Performance Indicator Required Performance Measurements 3.1Clean floors dailyState of Cleanliness Floors must be free of all visible dirt and refuse 3.2Empty wastebaskets dailyContents Each wastebasket must contain a clean plastic liner and be empty of refuse. 4.1 Teach monthly class on how to write a PWS % of students who pass course 98% of students must pass the PWS course 5.1 Keep the system in an operational state System availability The system availability shall be greater than or equal to 99.5% 5.2 Install virus definition updates to all computers on the network Timeliness Upon receipt of virus definition updates from the vendor, install those updates to all computers on the network within 24 hours
