Job Title: Maritime Engineer
Location: Vancouver, WA
Respondents shall show experience with the following items:
- Previous experience as a COTR for a government project of similar size and scope.
- Experience with repairs to vessels of the age and type as the TV Ironwood.
- Experience with marine engine and propulsion systems, hydraulics systems, electrical systems, onboard sewage treatment systems, air handler systems and hull repair.
- Experience with requirements of the USCG’s 5-year haul-out requirements per Code of Federal Regulations (46CFR 176).
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
- Oversight of the work included in the Scope of Work; this includes weekly site visits at a minimum.
- The COTR’s duties include providing technical direction and guidance as necessary with respect to the performance of work under the contract.
- The COTR is responsible for bringing to the attention of the Contracting Officer and the program/requiring office for which the work is being performed, any significant deficiencies with respect to contractor performance or other actions which might jeopardize contract performance.
Ensure that the contractor complies with all of the requirements of the statement of work, specifications, or performance work statement, and when requested by the contractor, provide technical direction to the contractor's technical manager. This technical assistance must be within the scope of the contract (e.g., interpreting specifications, statement of work & performance of work etc.). When a difference of opinion between COTR and the contractor occurs, notify the contracting officer or the contract administrator/specialist immediately for resolution. Ensure that the personnel being used by the contractor are of the same caliber that was originally proposed by the contractor to the Government. The experienced personnel contracted for and/or approved by the Government should not be diluted by the use of personnel with less experience. However, you may not permit changes, substitutions, or additions to personnel. Any decrease in or lack of performance shall be brought to the attention of the Contracting Officer or Contract Administrator/Specialist immediately.
Review and evaluate the contractor's progress in relation to the expenditures. When the costs expended by the contractor are not commensurate with the contractor's progress, bring this to the attention of the contracting officer or contract administrator/specialist for immediate action. Depending on the type of contract, you will either recommend to the Contracting Officer approval, conditional approval, or disapproval for payment. The review must be completed within five days after receipt of the invoice or voucher. If you cannot meet the required review time, advise the contracting officer or contract administrator/specialist so that action can be taken to ensure Government compliance with the Prompt Payment Act, thereby avoiding the payment of interest penalties to the contractor.
CHANGES TO THE CONTRACT
COTRs cannot authorize the contractor to stop work, and are not authorized to delete, change, waive, or negotiate any of the technical requirements or other terms and conditions of the contract. Should a change (monetary or otherwise) to the contract become necessary, it must be made by a contract modification issued by the contracting officer. When in doubt, contact the contracting officer or contract administrator/specialist. Any contract change requested by the contractor must be put in writing by the contractor to the Contracting Officer for action; however, you should immediately advise the contracting officer or contract administrator/specialist of the proposed change since it may affect the contract price, cost, or delivery/performance schedule. When the proposed change is received by the Contracting Officer, you will be required to provide the Contracting Officer with a written analysis and rationale for the change and to evaluate any costs associated with the change. You must also recognize and report to the contracting officer any Government required changes to the contract (e.g., items or work no longer required, changes in the specifications, etc.).
VISITS AND MEETINGS WITH THE CONTRACTOR
Make arrangements with the contractor for periodic visits to the contractor's facility to: (1) evaluate the contractor's performance; (2) evaluate changes in the technical performance affecting personnel, the schedule, deliverables, and price or costs; (3) inspect and monitor the use of Government property, if applicable; and (4) ensure that contractor employees being charged to the contract are actually performing the work under the contract. A trip report fully documenting all activities during the visit must be written and a copy provided to the contracting officer within three working days after the visit. Document the file to record each meeting and telephone conversation with the contractor. A daily logbook is required which should reflect the date, time, name, and title of individual(s) involved in the subject matter and the details of the meeting or conversation.
INSPECTION OF CONTRACT ITEMS
When notified by the contractor or the contracting officer, perform, in accordance with the terms of the contract, inspection, acceptance or rejection of the supplies, services, or construction. Immediately notify the contracting officer of all rejections and the reason for the action. Review progress reports from the contractor and advise the contracting officer of any contractor problems or action required to be taken by the Government.
CONTRACT FILE CONTENT AND MAINTENANCE
Establish and maintain an organized contract file to record all contractor and Government actions pertaining to the contract. The COTR file is of particular importance since the documentation of your interaction with the contractor may be used in the event of litigation. In addition, an organized file facilitates an easy transition from one COTR to another if reassignment becomes necessary. A complete and organized file should contain the following documentation:
