The Federal Acquisition Certification-Contracting Officer's Representative (FAC-COR) Program requirements are governed by the September 6, 2011 OMB Memo on Revisions to the Federal Acquisition Certification for Contracting Officer's Representatives.
The Contracting Officer’s Representatives (CORs) play a critical role in ensuring that contractors meet the commitment of their contracts. They ensure proper development of requirements and assist Contracting Officers in managing their contracts.
Where the previous FAC-COTR had just one level of certification for all CORs, the new FAC-COR has three levels of certification with varying requirements for training, experience, and continuous learning, depending on the types of contracts being managed. To find out more information about the requirements for each level, please refer to the table below. Note that training or continuous learning from one level may be applied to training requirements for the next level.
