GENERAL COMMENTS O N THE REPO RT
(U) Page i. USCENTCOM concu rs with JCC IIA's commen t on contract language differentiating P$YOP and PA. While the Statement of Work identifieS th e whole spectru m of media services under an ID/IQ contract, each task order identifies specific requirements. USCENT COM believes the rea! issue stems from the inclusion of " U.S. a udiences" ill the SOW, since It Is Illegal to target U.S. audiences for PSYOP.
(U) Page i. USCENTCOM believes that multiple award, ID/IQ contracts giv e both contracti ng officials and end users the best procedu re to ensure proposed procu rements are aligned wit h reqllirements . The oversight comes from IO practi tioners managing requirements and appointing CORs with detailed QASPs to m anage each task order. Provided the ve rbiage is such that it stands up to legal rigor, such contracts exped ite the acquisition process for the war fighter and centra lize procurement to avoid dupliCity or redundancy .
