The monthly invoice for payment to the contractor shall be taken from daily invoices showing total pounds clean weight delivered for the month and the total dollar amount.


C.15. PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS SUMMARY
1. The Government's primary quality assurance procedures are based on random sampling of the recurring output products of the contract using the concepts of MIL-STD 105D. Other areas will be reviewed periodically (i.e. Monthly, Quarterly, and Semi-Annually).


2. The criteria for satisfactory and unsatisfactory performance is as follows:


a. THE REQUISITION SURVEYED BY SAMPLING: Criteria are derived from MIL-STD LO5D based on the lot size, sample size, and AQL for each contract requirement. When the number of defects in the contractor's performance discovered by the COTR exceed the allowable number defects, the contractor shall be required to explain in writing why performance was unsatisfactory, how performance will be returned to satisfactory levels, and how recurrence of the problem will be prevented in the future. In accordance with the general clause 52.246-4, "Inspection of Services", the contractor will not be paid for services not rendered in accordance with the standards set forth in this contract. The contractor is required to rework the services found by the Government to be unsatisfactorily performed. Because the sample represents the entire work requirements, the rework of the defects found by the Government shall not reduce the overall rating of that served.


b. FOR REQUIREMENTS NOT SURVEYED BY SAMPLING: The criteria for these requirements were derived from estimates of the level of performance experienced when the service was done by the Government personnel and are the level of performance deemed acceptable to the Government personnel and are the level of performance deemed acceptable to the Government. The use of the contract discrepancy report and nonpayment provision, as described above, applies to these requirements as well.


3. The contractor shall be paid for all performed in accordance with the contract standards. Monthly payment will be reduced for unsatisfactory performance, using the following methods:


a. Each month contractor performance will be evaluated according to contract standards and acceptable quality assurance surveillance plan (QASP).


b. If performance in any required service is unsatisfactory, and the poor performance was not caused by Government action, or lack of action, an amount of money up to the monthly line item price times that percentage cost of the service as stated in column five of the performance requirements summary shall be deducted.


4. Monthly payment to the contractor will be reduced for unsatisfactory performance using the following methods:


a. FOR AREA SURVEYED BY SAMPLING:


1. Example of deduction computation using sampling surveillance. In a laundry services contract, the COTR would survey "wash formulas" as a single performance requirement for the performance requirement summary (PRS). Random sampling results show that the AQL of the 4% has been exceeded.
(a) Contract price per month for Laundry services $10,000


(b) Per cent total contract
Price for wash formulas x 10%
(c) Total price for wash formulas Per month $ 1,000


(d) Lot size = 450


(e) ) Sample size = 50


(f) Number of defects found = 20 (exceed reject level)


(g) Percentage of sample found Defective (20/50) x 40%


(h) deduction for services not
Performed (line c x line g) x 400


2. Example of deduction computation for areas not surveyed by sampling: Transportation of laundry is unsatisfactory, when the inspection was made, five defects were found. Unsatisfactory performance is when four or more defects are discovered. Deduction computation is as follows:


(a) contract price per month
for laundry services $10,000


(b) per cent of total contract
price for wash formulas x 5%


(c) ) total price for wash
formulas per month $500


(d) lot size = 96


(e) AQL = 4%


(f) ) reject level (line d x line e) =4(round up)


(g) number of defects = 5


(h) defective percentage of transportation of laundry
(5/96) X 5%
(i) deduction for service not performed to
(line c x line h) $25


NOTE: When not using sampling, the deduction computation is the same as for sampling except that the number of defects found is divided by the lot size, not the sample size, to determine the percentage of service defective.
