Policy guidance as to the minimum
requirements for a Statement of Work (SOW) or a performance work Statement
- The regulations state that to the
maximum extent practicable, our statements of work for services should be
written in a Performance based Acquisition (PBA) manner. That is to say each SOW/PWS should be written
to make clear the specific services that are required, but not how to perform
the services. The offerors are supposed
to describe specifically how they will undertake the service in their
proposal. The Government is supposed to
analyze the approach and either accept it, negotiate it, or reject it.
- Here is a good example of a PBA SOW
