Communication with Industry and Request for Proposal Process

Sign Ups Open on 11 MAR at 1200 ET Until All Spaces Are Reserved

APPLY

Description: SOF AT&L Contracting Officers and Program Managers will conduct roundtable discussions with attendees on the different communication mediums (e.g., SAM.gov, Industry Days, etc.) used to forecast or discuss new requirements with industry and the limitations on communications during the formal source selection process. This session will allow industry to obtain an understanding of how the Government communicates requirements to industry through the various stages of the acquisition process.

The intent of these exchanges is to provide industry with insight on the process and limits of Government exchanges and to gain insight from industry on areas where SOF AT&L can improve in its communication with industry.

The session will also focus on Request for Proposals (RFP) Sections L and M, highlighting keys to submitting successful proposals. These discussions between Government and industry foster collaboration, exchange of best practices, and ensure industry partners are well-informed to navigate the proposal submission process efficiently.

 

WHEN: Monday, 6 MAY 2024

There will be TWO sessions available; the same session repeated in two different time slots:

1300 - 1400
1430 - 1530


WHERE: Marriott Water Street - Florida Ballrooms Salons I - IV

 

SIGN UP NOTES: 

  • You may only pick ONE timeslot at ONE table.
  • Companies may have a maximum of two representatives participate. Each person must sign up individually.
