CONTRACTING OFFICER'S REPRESENTATIVE (COR) PROGRAM:
What is a COR?
A Contracting Officer's Representative (COR) is a Government official appointed in writing by the contracting officer who provides technical direction, clarification and guidance with respect to the contract specifications and statement of work. The COR is the technical liaison between the contractor and the contracting officer and is responsible for ensuring satisfactory performance and timely delivery as set forth in the contract. The COR is appointed by a COR Appointment letter which sets out roles, responsibilities, limitations and duties from the Contracting Officer.

Appointed CORs are required by USAMRMC Acquisition Instruction 1.602-2(2)(100) Training and Experience Requirements for Contracting Officer's Representatives (CORs) to complete a general COR course within six months of being assigned as a COR. Current CORs are also required to attend a one to two day refresher course every three to five years. The COR courses provide a comprehensive overview of the acquisition process, the COR's role and authority in the process and guidance on contract administration and contract monitoring. Attendees are also provided updates on current legislation and the current environment of the acquisition world.
