Request for Proposal Analyses

  • The key to winning a government contract is the proper preparation of a proposal, whether it is a response to a Request for Proposal (RFP), Invitation for Bids (IFB), Request for Quotation (RFQ) or a Request for Offer (RFO). This is achieved by analyzing the requirements contained in the RFP.
  • The RFP describes the task, establishes competition and evaluation guidelines, and asks the contractor to submit a proposal to complete the work. RFPs are legally binding documents. They are not contracts, but they are considered by law to be the foundation of a contract between two parties. All information in an RFP should be analyzed for factual and technical accuracy.
  • GPS will assist in the decision whether or not to proceed with pursuing the RFP, review literally every opportunity the government advertises for competition, and research the performance requirements, evaluation factors, special RFP requirements, set-aside restrictions, etc.
