(Last Modified:27-Sep-2018)


The Contract Management: Strategies for Mission Success module focuses on improvements made to federal contract management through the collaboration of public and private sector acquisition professionals as part of the Partnership for Public Service's Acquisition Innovation Initiative. This Continuous Learning Module (CLM) contains the lessons of this two-year effort, and represents the partnership of several agencies and organizations that contributed to the design, development, and implementation of this CLM. This partnership includes the Federal Acquisition Institute (FAI), the Partnership for Public Service, and the General Services Administration Center for Acquisition Excellence. This module consists of four key lessons:
1. Partnering for Success, the most important lesson, explains why partnering between government and contractors is essential to contract success.
2. Contract Kickoff Meeting illustrates how to establish and conduct an effective contract kickoff meeting.
3. Developing and Evaluating Performance Metrics explores the process of creating powerful performance metrics.
4. Problem Escalation and Resolution Process explains how to create a formal process for solving problems.
