The Services Summary (SS) and the contractor's Quality Control Plan provide information on contract requirements, the expected level of contractor performance and the expected method of government validation and confirmation of services provided. These thresholds are critical to mission success. Procedures as set forth in the FAR 52.212-4 (a), Contract Terms and Conditions - Commercial Items, Inspection/Acceptance, will be used to remedy all deficiencies. The COR or designated representative will evaluate the contractor's inspection, and any deficiencies are to be provided to the contractor in writing. To account for a Phase-in Period: during the initial 15 days of the contract, two additional valid discrepancies on each performance objective shall be allowed in an effort to identify normal phase-in problems and both will be documented. After the first 15 days, one (1) additional valid defect shall be allowed and documented.

The PRS that follows provides the following information:

a) Required Service. Lists the Contract requirements which are considered necessary for acceptable Contract performance (see Column 1). The absence from this PRS of any Contract requirement, however, shall not detract from its enforceability or limit the rights or remedies of the Government under any provision of the Contract.

b) Standard. Contains reference paragraph number (this includes all subsequent subparagraphs) that describes the standards that each Contract requirement must meet or exceed (see Column 2).

c) Maximum Allowable Degree of Deviation from Requirement (AQL). Sets forth the maximum allowable deviation from perfect performance for each listed service, acceptable quality level (AQL) that may occur before the
Contractor will receive less than 100 percent of the maximum payment for the listed service (see Column 3).

d) Method of Surveillance. Sets forth the primary surveillance methods the Government will use to evaluate the
Contractor's performance in meeting the Contract requirements (see Column 3). Various other methods exist to monitor performance. The COR will use surveillance methods including, but not limited to, 100% inspection, random sampling, planned sampling, and validated customer complaints.

Regardless of the surveillance method, the COR shall always contact the CM when a defect is identified and inform the manager of the specifics of the problem. The COR will be responsible for monitoring the contractor's performance in meeting a specific performance standard/AQL.

Surveillance results may be used as the basis for actions against the Contractor. Services shall be measured against the above objectives and monitored with the Government's QASP. Discrepancies shall be recorded and reported on the 5th day of each month on a Contractor's Discrepancy Report (CDR). The Contractor shall acknowledge the report and make corrections before the next report period.

The COR will use the contractor's work schedule or modified version thereof, to record work performance. Results of the validation then become the official Air Force record of the Contractor's performance. When a performance threshold has not been met or contractor performance has not been accomplished, the COR will initiate and provide the Contracting Officer a Contract Discrepancy Report (CDR) DD Form 5479 for issuance to the contractor. The contractor shall respond to the CDR IAW instructions provided and return it to the Contracting Officer within 10 calendar days of receipt or as per specific instructions by the KO.
