21.2 Elements of PBCs

21.2.0 Elements of PBCs

At a minimum, there are four elements of performance-based contracting:

  • Statement of work (SOW):  a written document describing the technical, functional and/or service requirements and customer expectations in terms of measurable outcomes rather than by means of prescriptive methods.
  • Measurable performance standards:  written definition of what is considered acceptable performance to determine whether performance outcomes are met.
  • Quality control plan:  a written document describing how the supplier's actual performance will be monitored and measured against the contractually established performance standards.
  • Incentive plan:  written procedures addressing how met and unmet contractual performance standards will be resolved, escalated, remediated and/or remunerated. Incentives may be linked to price or fee adjustments. While not mandatory, incentives can be used, where appropriate, to encourage performance that will exceed the established performance standards.
