    To protect the Government's interest and to ensure timely delivery 
of items of the requisite quality, contracting officers, prior to

in his possession or must obtain information sufficient to satisfy 
himself that the prospective contractor (i) has adequate financial 
resources, or the ability to obtain such resources, (ii) is able to 
comply with required delivery schedule, (iii) has a satisfactory record 
of performance, (iv) has a satisfactory record of integrity, and (v) is 
otherwise qualified and eligible to receive an award under appropriate 
laws and regulations. If such information is not in the contracting 
officer's possession, it is obtained through a preaward survey 
conducted by the contract administration office responsible for the 
plant and/or the geographic area in which the plant is located. The 
necessary data is collected by contract administration personnel from
