Performance contract

A contract to perform the work/service or deliver the goods. A submitted bid or proposal is viewed as the supplier’s offer to enter into the performance contract. Once the purchasing organization has evaluated the submissions, it accepts the best-value offer based on predetermined evaluation criteria, and the performance contract is formed between the purchaser and the supplier.
