VETS 2 Can Make or Break a SDVOSB IT Company

Proposals for the GSA Veterans Technology Services 2 GWAC (VETS 2) are due on June 6, 2016.

GSA plans to make awards to 70 Service Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSBs). Like the ALLIANT 2 and OASIS GWACs, GSA is using an objective evaluation methodology by using a self-scoring system rather than a subjective scoring of technical and management requirements. (Much to the relief of many who abhor writing proposal narrative.)

Awards are made on the basis of contractual documents that verify experience. Accordingly, the proposal writing process becomes a complex and frustrating exercise of document gathering, file manipulation, and communications with contracting officers when performance information is not available. A response to the VETS 2 solicitation requires seven separate folders full of forms, contract documents and pricing files - an organizational nightmare. 


The VETS 2 final RFP has relaxed project experience requirements from the draft RFP two significant ways:

  1. Bidders can qualify with contractor teaming arrangements.
  2. Bidders may use relevant experience and past performance accomplished as either a prime or a subcontractor.

Allowing bidders to use relevant experience performed either as a prime or subcontractor is a significant relaxation of requirements.

Fedmarket's proposal writing services for VETS 2 can save proposal writing time, eliminate the complexity and frustration of building 7 folders of material, and ensure proposal compliance.

  • Purchase a fully compliant draft proposal: $1,800 - Click here.
  • Purchase full proposal writing services: $3,600 - Click here. The customer sends Fedmarket customer specific content (per our red instructions) and Fedmarket builds, organizes, and edits the proposal material into a complete proposal ready for submission.

Our Draft VETS 2 Proposal is not a template. It's an RFP compliant and file-specific draft proposal with instructions.

Fedmarket prepares a draft proposal as follows:

  1. Reverse engineer (deconstruct) the Request for Proposal into a Compliance Matrix
  2. Use the Compliance Matrix to organize a fully compliant proposal outline. In other words, an RFP driven outline based on precisely what the government is requesting in the RFP.
  3. Add color coded RFP requirements from Sections L (Proposal Instructions) & Section M (Evaluation Criteria) of the RFP to assist customers in writing company specific content. (All colored coded requirements and instructions are deleted by us in the final editing process in the full service option).
  4. Add legacy content from our proposal library to the outline.
  5. Add tables and standard formats to the outline.
  6. Add red instructions to the outline telling customers precisely what is needed from them to complete the proposal.

Follow our instructions, gather the experience documents, send them to us (full-service only), and you are done.
