The government uses the Negotiated Procurement process to enter into contracts when the requirement cannot be exactly specified. These actions may be competitively negotiated or entered into on a sole source basis. It’s important for federal contractors to understand the differences between the two and all the steps that are involved. It is equally important that they understand the art and science of actual negotiation. This segment will cover both topic areas, along with oral presentations which are often necessary during Negotiated Procurements.
