How to Respond to and Submit a Sources Sought Notice or Request for Information 6-18-20Thursday, June 18, 2020, at 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM- Eastern Standard Time [Web Conference]
The best way to help get a contract set-aside for a small business is to respond to a Sources Sought Notice or Request for Information.
When agencies are considering setting a contract aside for a small business, the agency post a Sources Sought Notice or Request for Information. The agency must receive two or more responses for consideration. If they don’t receive responses, the contract will go out full and open – meaning you will have to compete with a large firm for the same contract
Join us for this comprehensive look at deciding if the contract is right for your firm and how to submit a response that will show you have the capacity to fulfill the contract should it be awarded to your firm.
