Requirement: This notice is issued by U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), Region 9, Public Building Service, Acquisition Management Division, San Francisco CA 94102 to identify sources capable of performing the work required in the facilities maintenance services Performance-Based Statement of Work (PBSOW).

Scope of Work:
This is a Performance Based Service Contract which focuses on the needs of the customer rather than on how the contractor meets those needs. The success of the contract depends on the satisfaction of the requirements, but also the satisfaction of our shared customer through a partnering effort between the CO or his/her designee and the contractor, rather than a mere list of activities, this is a written expression of the GSA’s expectation of the service to be performed by the contractor. A higher level of effective communication between the Government and contractor is essential for partnering and performance-based service contracting to succeed. The success of this contract is shared between the Government and the contractor.
 
More emphasis is placed on the contractor’s internal self-management of quality; not the usual external inspection by Government Inspectors, although that is a part of this contract as well. All parties should act proactively to reduce service cost; therein providing an incentive for the contractor.
