CONTRACT DELIVERABLE EVALUATION INSTRUMENT
OEP staff uses the Contract Deliverable Evaluation Instrument to determine whether the contractor has met the terms of the contract, that is, has provided all the required deliverables and addressed all the elements of those deliverables specified in the contract. The contractor is encouraged to use the same instrument as a guide to action throughout the contract. Appendix D provides a copy of the checklist for the cities whose contracts began in fiscal year 2000. It served as the starting point and framework for the committee’s analysis of potential preparedness indicators that is described in Chapter 6 and Appendix E.
