More government agencies are favoring scorecard-bids for large, multiple-award contracts to ensure that all awardees have the breadth and depth of experience necessary to fulfill task orders. That means evaluators will rely on contract documentation and very limited narrative explanations of relevant experience.

To make the cut, you need a smart strategy for highlighting your experience, closely tailoring your chosen projects to the Government’s needs, and making every word of your narratives and resumes count. You also need to triple-check that you have met all your compliance obligations while submitting the various supporting documentation.

Are you bidding on the State Department’s IT-Services Contract, Evolve? Phase I responses are due Feb. 8 by 11 p.m.and must be submitted through the Symphony portal. If you want fresh eyes to proofread and assist in submitting your documents, call us. We also have business development experts who can advise on how to maximize your score and map out your proposal plan for Phase II. For more information on Evolve, see our previous newsletter.

If you’re considering a bid on one of the biggest contracts in play this year — the General Services Administration’s (GSA) One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services “+” (OASIS+) — the time to develop your win strategy is now.
