NH-PTAP Events

Understanding and Responding to Federal Bid Requests
Government solicitations (requests for bids or proposals) are often complex in terms of what requires a response and what doesn’t. Your bid or proposal must be “responsive” – supply all required information and answer all of their questions, in the way that they expect them answered – or it risks being discarded as “non-responsive”. This workshop will provide insight on how to read and understand a solicitation, and how to make sure that your bid or proposal isn’t discarded before it’s read.

Federal Website Navigation II – Intermediate Market Research
This session explores market research techniques using the immensely valuable Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS – https://www.fpds.gov). This enormous, public searchable database provides information on all past Federal government contract sales. You can access the purchasing history of any Federal Agency, or the contracting history of any company that sells directly to the government. We will also explore using the Schedule Sales Query (SSQ) utility for GSA Schedule contracts. This tool can be used to evaluate the market size and competitive dynamics for given GSA Schedules and individual SINs.
