4.5 CONTRACTOR RISK MANAGEMENT
Experience has shown that managing a programís risks requires a close
partnership between the PMO and the prime contractor(s). PMs must determine
the type of support they need from their prime contractor, communicate these
needs through the Request for Proposal (RFP) for each acquisition phase, and
then provide for them in the contract. Preparation of the RFP and source
selection are discussed in subsequent sections.
