Performance : Task Orders : Task Order Execution

Task Order Execution

When the State and the Consultant have come to agreement, and everyone has a shared understanding of the risks, expectations, deliverables, and acceptance requirements, the task order can be executed.

No work shall be allowed (or paid for) prior to the task order execution date or after the task order expiration date.

Execution of the task order requires:

  1. Final version of the task order, including all items agreed upon during negotiations, and is accompanied by the agreed-upon cost proposal
  2. Final version of the cost proposal
  3. Encumbering funds for the task order
  4. All the necessary signatures, which may include the contract manager, functional manager, project manager, or the functional Division Chief (or delegated authority)
