Historically, we’ve seen agencies move from sealed bidding to the best value continuum, using both the low price technically acceptable and tradeoff processes. Now what? What factors does the Government consider in determining the best procurement strategy? How does Industry make an informed decision on whether to pursue contract opportunities under the various procurement strategies? More important, how does industry submit a winning proposal, a proposal that will be deemed by the evaluation board(s) to provide the “best value” to the Government, and an ultimate contract award to your firm, whether that be through sealed bidding, LPTA, or tradeoff processes? This on-line course will provide you an overview of the Federal Source Selection process, making it work for both Government and Industry, focusing on: What is Best Value Source Selection, versus Sealed Bidding, and When the Methodology is Used…Low Price Technically Acceptable vs. Tradeoff vs. Other Best Value contract actions; DoD and Civilian Agency Specific Approaches; Government Request for Proposal Development, Source Selection Evaluation Factors, the Evaluation Process and Award; Preparing Industry Proposal for Success…Do’s and Don’ts; What May Cause Protests and Chances of Prevailing; and Future of the Use of Source Selection methodologies and trends, as viewed by DoD and Civilian agencies. Participants will achieve the following understanding after taking this course: FAR, DoD and Civilian Agency FAR supplement guidance on Source Selection Typical best value solicitation content/requirements Preparing a winning proposal based on greater understanding of the particular source selection approach being used Analyzing various evaluation scenarios How to get the most out of a debriefing Protests…do you have a valid case?

Mind the Gaps and Strengthen the Team - Teaming Agreements, Joint Ventures and Mentor-Protégé Relationships Webinar

ORIGINALLY PRESENTED NOVEMBER 5, 2013 Course Presenters: Marty Ray,VP of Strategy & Planning, ZAPATA Course Length: 1.5 Hours Course Credit Hours: 1.5 PDHs Course Overview: This webinar provides an overview of strategies to build successful teams to win Department of Defense (DOD) contracts in today’s competitive environment. For the past decade, DOD has made significant changes in the way it procures goods and services. Many of these changes have resulted in contract requirements that are more complex: larger in scope, size, dollar amount and often geographically dispersed. Although this has helped the government cope with the reduction in the acquisition workforce through fewer contracts, it has generated requirements that are out of the reach of many small business concerns. In response to these changes, contractors are frequently forming “Teams” in their quest to satisfy government requirements and present a “Best Value” solution to the procuring agency. This session will focus on ways businesses can build successful teams to strengthen their proposals and resulting work.
