  • Government PM’s are often left wondering how to I translate my requirements for goods and services to the best acquisition strategy and how much should I expect to spend?
  • For the contractor trying to decipher the RFP you are left to figure out if you should respond to government’s RFPs if you are awarded can it be performed with a profit for your company?
These considerations and many more will be the focus of this one day, pragmatic seminar on RFP “development” and “practical interpretation,” taught by a Certified Federal Contracts Manager and former Program Manager.
