White House Procurement Chief Says Contractor Performance Not Effectively Reviewed

Jill R. Aitoro, reporter for Washington Business Journal, writes that Joe Jordan, administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy, has indicated that agencies are failing to effectively review contractor performance because they want to stay under the radar and do so by tempering company reviews. When awarding contracts, agencies are expected to get reviews on past performance from other contracting officers who have used and have experience with the bidder. “Agencies are nervous to say [a contractor] was too good or too bad because they don’t want to spend time explaining negative reviews to the company and they don’t want to be held accountable by colleagues that have a bad experience with a company they endorse.”
