This SOP has internal roles only.
To explain requirements and answer questions for complex contracts before potential offerors develop proposals.
Potential offerors, end users, contracting and program staff, and others involved in an acquisition may participate in a preproposal conference, conducted in accordance with FAR 15.201.
Statements made at the conference are informational only. In this way, the offerors' understanding of government requirements can be improved. This will allow them to judge how they can satisfy the government requirements and increase their efficiency in proposal preparation.
Changes resulting from the conference are official only if issued through an amendment to the solicitation.
See the Office of Acquisitions staff listing for a contract specialist.
