Post-Award Orientation

The QAR may conduct a post-award orientation conference on NAVSUP WSS nuclear contracts to aid both the government and contractor personnel in achieving a clear and mutual understanding of all the contract requirements invoked. The purpose of the meeting is to have a detailed discussion up front in order to reduce the number of contract performance issues that delay material delivery.

At a minimum the post-award conference should include a discussion on any subcontractor flow down requirements, applicable drawings, design data, manuals, specifications, pre-production requirements, qualification tests, specification interpretation, packaging and marking requirements, NOFORN compliance, and contract data deliverables. The QAR should also notify the supplier in writing of any required hold points in the production or manufacturing process; hold points allow the government to witness any important manufacturing processes, an opportunity to verify significant material characteristics, or address any special areas of concern.
