COR TRACKING (CORT) TOOL
- DoD Agencies are required to use the DoD Contracting Officer Representative Tracking
(CORT) Tool to electronically track COR nominations, appointments, terminations, and
training certifications for service contracts.
- The CORT Tool is a module within the Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment
(PIEE) at https://wawf.eb.mil.
- CORs must complete COR training/certifications before establishing a profile in the CORT
- The COR nomination process involves 3 steps:
- Ensure your Supervisor has a PIEE Account with CORT
Tool "Supervisor" role
- Ensure you have a PIEE Account with CORT Tool "COR"
- Submit a self-nomination in CORT Tool for each contract/task order. Once
approves your nomination, the Contracting Officer will be able to
officially appoint you
within the CORT Tool.
We cannot provide step-by-step instructions for PIEE as they change with system upgrades.
We recommend you take the web based training and consult the "Help - CORT Tool
Documents" on the PIEE help page.
