Implementing A Task Order Proposal Process: Part 2 – Next Steps
Let’s start off by stating the obvious: Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contracts, Multiple Award Contracts (MACs), Government-wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs), and Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA) are not going away. When you successfully bid and win an award on one of these contract vehicles, you have the opportunity to then bid on the subsequent task order requests (TOR).
In other words, the real work is just beginning; you have to plan to bid and win your share of these task orders (TO). You need to put the same time and effort into pursuing a TO as you do any other bid opportunity. Making business development and capture management part of your TO pursuit process is critical to your success. The following points are important activities to include in your process to pursuing (and winning) task orders.
