Abstract

ACT-IAC White Paper: EIS: High Quality Proposal Timeline
Developed by the ACT-IAC Networks and Telecommunications Community of Interest
Date Released: September 25, 2018

The new Enterprise Infrastructure Solutions (EIS) contract awarded by GSA provides opportunities for Federal agencies to acquire leading-edge telecommunications, IT, and related services.  Industry’s ability to deliver high quality proposals in response to government solicitations is a major step towards use of EIS; more accurate, descriptive, and complete proposals provide clarity to the evaluation and award process, and reduce implementation, operations, and cost risks.  This paper describes several factors that have positive and negative effects on industry’s ability to deliver high-quality proposals, and outlines steps the government can take to improve the overall quality of industry proposals.  The first step in this process is to increase the information sharing between government and industry.  Additional approaches are described that government and industry can follow that improve the potential for high-quality proposals.
