Section C. Statement of Work (SOW) The Statement of Work (SOW) describes what the government agency wants you to do, or supply. Outside of Section B. Supplies or Services and Price/Costs , most of your proposal will be responding to this section. It is important to list every item on the required SOW and state how you will deliver what is needed. When responding to the SOW, don’t be afraid to be redundant and don’t assume the proposed agency already knows the SOW. Section C is an opportunity to insert your business name as the “respondent” and reinforce that you will provide the services requested. You can also create a supporting section to highlight your approach to delivering on the listed SOW and illustrate your firm’s capabilities to the agency. Section D. Packages and Marking This section defines how all contract deliverables, such as reports and material will be packaged and shipped. It includes specific instructions regarding timing, location, and delivery details for your response to the RFP. Along with the preparation of a responsive proposal, the timing and delivery are the most important items to focus on. Allow 2-3 days for shipping the proposal for arrival on or before the due date, and work backwards from that date. When sending packages and marking: Ensure the target agency contact, contact title, email, and address City/State/ZIP are clearly listed on a sealed package of your proposal. Note that the Contract Manager is often different than the expected recipient of the proposal. Be careful that your bid package is not opened prior to arriving in the appropriate location at the appropriate time. Ensure the solicitation number is clearly stated on the package. Make sure you pay attention to and follow all instructions in the RFP. If you don’t, it could affect costs, raise logistics issues, and result in a nonresponsive proposal. Section E. Inspection and Acceptance This section describes the process by which the government officially accepts deliverables and what will happen if the work is not accepted. Typically, the Oversight Manager can inspect and test the goods and services at any time and place during the term of the award. The government typically reserves 10 business days from the date of your delivery to decide if goods and services comply with the requirements of the contract. If they don’t, the agency can require you to re- perform the services or redeliver the goods in conformity with the requirements of the award, at no additional increase in total contract amount.

Understanding the Government Solicitation Bid Package If the issue is not corrected when you re-perform the services, then the government can (1) require you, immediately, to take all necessary steps to ensure future performance of the services in conformity with the requirements of the contract; and (2) reduce your contract price to reflect the reduced value of the services performed. In extreme cases, the agency can have another firm perform the services or deliver

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
