Contracting Officer’s Representatives are the “eyes and ears” of federal contracting offices, serving as vital links between contractors and Contracting Officers.
Now, through a unique blending of content drawn from on-line instruction with all the dynamics of an in-classroom course, The Contracting Education Academy at Georgia Tech is offering a five-day presentation covering all aspects of the unique role Contracting Officer’s Representatives play in the acquisition process.
Registration information for the next class is available by clicking here.
Georgia Tech’s course specifically covers all of the content found in the Defense Acquisition University’s Contracting Officer’s Representative course (COR 222), along with DAU’s Contracting Officer’s Representative in the Contingency Contracting Environment class (COR 206). The latter covers ethical situations and cultural differences a COR may experience while deployed in a contingency operation.
