MP5301.602-2 (d) Designation, Assignment, and Responsibilities of a Contracting Officers Representative (COR)

The following are mandatory procedures (MP) for standardizing the Air Force (AF) contracting process regarding designation, assignment, and responsibilities of a Contracting Officer's Representative. The assignment of a COR is not necessary when the CO retains or delegates surveillance to DCMA, or one of the categories of services exempted in AFI 63-138, except Construction. DoDI 5000.72 requires COs to designate a COR for Construction contracts, unless the contracting officer retains and executes contract oversight responsibilities when the conditions of DFARS 201.602-2 exist.
