SU-300 – Post Award Orientation

Shortly after you are awarded a contract, the government Contracting Officer (CO) will convene a Post-Award Orientation Conference (PAOC) with you and other government stakeholders. The PAOC is often the first time you will meet agency staff who will oversee and surveil your performance. It is also a time when you and government personnel come together to discuss critical contract performance requirements. This course will focus on what you should expect to occur at the PAOC and how to properly prepare for this important meeting.
