Purpose:

The purpose of the ACC-Orlando ombudsman program is to foster communication between Government and Industry.

Review contractor complaints relative to multiple-award task and delivery order contracts awarded under FAR Part 16 to ensure that all contractors are afforded a fair opportunity to be considered for task and delivery orders consistent with the procedures in the contract;

b. Be an independent, senior government official responsible for receiving and acting upon inquiries and complaints from Industry and assisting in the resolution of problems with the acquisition process;

c. Facilitate communication between the ACC-Orlando and Industry, and ensure that proper action is taken to promptly address problems between the Industry and ACC-Orlando; and

d. Review complaints and inquiries impartially, facilitate problem-solving through advocacy, persuasion and mediation, and monitor progress in the resolution of complaints; and

e. Avoid any appearance of usurping normal procurement authority (e.g., contracting officer, program manager, and source selection authority).
