1.7.2 Other Award Programs: The A-E must obtain written permission via
the PDE from the PACNAVFACENGCOM Public Affairs Officer (00D) when the A-E
proposes to submit projects under PACNAVFACENGCOM contract administration
for publication or for other awards program. As appropriate, submit the
proposed text or a complete description of the other awards program.
1.8 A-E PERFORMANCE EVALUATION: An A-E performance evaluation report will
be prepared for each A-E/ES contract or task order in excess of $25,000.
Performance evaluation reports will be prepared on DD 2631, Appendix D, at
the completion of design and at the completion of construction. For IDQ
contracts, a separate report will be prepared for each project completed
under the contract. The Acquisition Department will automatically forward
evaluations to the A-E. The completed evaluations will be permanently
retained in the ACASS for review and consideration by A-E Slate and
Selection Boards. A-E may review the firm's evaluations at the Acquisition
Department upon request.
Architect-Engineer Contract Administration Support System (ACASS) is an
automated system by which the Government may assess and evaluate A-E firms
who are interested in Government contracts. ACASS is used to assemble the
information necessary for pre-selection and selection officials, to help
analyze the firm's past performance evaluations. ACASS list past
performance up to 6 years.
1.9 A-E LIABILITY: Construction contract modifications resulting from
design errors or omissions are reviewed to determine if the A-E should be
held responsible for compensation to the Government for damages incurred.
Cases involving A-E liability will be vigorously pursued by the Government.
In several instances construction problems resulting from design
deficiencies have resulted in A-E liability cases because the A-E failed to
provide timely support to resolve the problem. A-E's should consider this
fact when they are requested to assist in the resolution of construction
problems. The Acquisition Department is the Command's coordinator for A-E
