Contractor ResponsibilitProgram

The Office of the Budget, in partnership with the Department of General Services, Office of General Counsel, and Office of Inspector General, administers the Commonwealth Contractor Responsibility Program. The goals of the program are:

  • To ensure commonwealth agencies contract with responsible and competent contractors
  • To identify, evaluate, and appropriately sanction contractors that do not meet the standards of responsibility, that render deficient performance, or that engage in wrongdoing or other inappropriate activities
  • To develop and maintain a centralized system to collect and disseminate information concerning issues affecting contractor responsibility
The Contractor Responsibility Program is mandated by Executive Order 1990-3 (PDF) and carried out through the policy, responsibilities, and procedures established by Management Directive 215.9 (PDF).
