  • Maximize usage: The vendors will provide reports (monthly, quarterly, and year-to-date), which will be used to proactively audit agency compliance/non-compliance.
  • Monitor contract scope: Additional work or changes to the scope of the work will not occur until authorized in writing by IDOA.
  • Vendor performance: Monitoring the contractor's performance through quantitative analysis, Vendor Scorecards, Issue Logs and Commodity User Group Meetings.
