federal Government Procurement PolicyWhen it comes to government procurement policies and procedure, the government has set rules and regulations to ensure that procurement integrity is maintained. It must show that it spends taxpayer dollars wisely with government contract awards. The crux of federal policy is to ensure that government contractors offer proposals for services and products which offer the best value to the government.

Both small businesses are large DOD contractors are impacted by current and future legislation. However, many do not participate in giving their input and presenting concerns when the Federal Register publishes proposed rules for comment.

When the final rule is published, it is too late. As a government contractor, federal legislative developments in the procurement process are important to the future of your organization when it comes to government contract awards. Knowing and tracking when federal procurement policy and procedural laws are introduced for comment in the Federal Register is critical to the outcome of federal contract and public procurement law.

Get your opinion heard before laws are finalized.Contractors find themselves simply following public procurement procedures and laws after they have become final but with no prior input. However, government procurement policy generally goes through the rulemaking process before becoming a final rule.

The legislative bodies can receive input that might have an effect on the final rule. With an experienced federal procurement policy specialist that understands how new policy and procurement procedures can impact a company’s bottom line, contractors can have a voice that matters.

What is Government Procurement Policy?  Procurement policies and procedures as it pertains to federal contracting includes a set of rules that agencies must follow when procuring commercial services and products. It starts with the budgeting process. This is followed by the initial planning and market research stage. Once the planning stage is complete, agencies then advertise their requirements on FBO. This starts the bidding and evaluation stages. As stated, procurement law is heavily regulated.

Federal Procurement Policies and Procurement Process

The federal government’s policy starts the federal procurement process by planning a researching its requirements. Since purchasing policies and procedures align with the government’s purchase of commercial services and products, the agency will conduct market research.  Whether the agency is looking for sustainable procurement, construction, or trying to meet its small business goals, this procedure gives the agency an idea of similar processes in the commercial sector and how to attract viable candidates to bid on the published requirements.

Under the FAR clauses, the process also allows the contracting agency to see whether there is a reasonable expectation that small businesses could potentially bid on its upcoming requirements.

After market research and the initial procurement procedures for planning, the agency then publicizes its requirements for bid. There are various vehicles that the government can use to solicit bidders.

The important aspect of the government’s procurement process is after bid submission. Each agency will conduct a source selection that is based on the solicitation’s stated criteria. After a proper evaluation, the next stage of the process is the contract award stage.

These are areas where we can help your company with procurement process best practices.
