Form a JV or CTA to Bid on VETS 2

VETS 2 Final RFP was released on April 21, 2016. The final RFP did not relax the 500k project size requirements included in the draft but they did relax:

  • Number of projects is now up to 10, not 5-10 as in draft RFP
  • The requirement that a JV or CTA must have existed and performed projects as a JV or CTA has been removed.

This allows companies interested in pursing VETS 2 to form a JV or CTAs to bid.

Companies may be reluctant to show their project experience to others. Project experience is the most valuable asset that a small business can show the government to win federal IT contracts. The government is now demanding contract documents and information for contracting officials to verify the size, scope, and performance of IT projects. Accordingly, project experience is unique to you and cannot be used by others If you have the required proof of project value. And it may be advantageous to publish your experience to others for future joint bids.
