Performance-Based Services Acquisition (PBSA) Guidebook
The Performance-Based Services Acquisition (PBSA) Guidebook seeks to re-position services as an acquisition process instead of a contracting function. This recognizes the need and contribution of many other acquisition functions, such as program management, logistics, finance, general counsel and contracting, that help ensure a successful service acquisition. The guidebook walks you through the entire acquisition process, providing tips on formulating the acquisition team to writing the Statement of Work, developing standards, conducting market research and establishing incentives. The guidebook provides many other tips, checklists and web site links. The memo and guidebook are: pbsaguide010201.pdf (PDF format) or pbsaguide010201.doc (Microsoft Word format).
