APEX Lunch and Learn:  Responding to Sources Sought Opportunities

October 17, 2024
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Online Training

What is the purpose of a sources sought notice?  A sources sought notice is an early stage opportunity that helps federal agencies conduct market research to identify possible vendors, especially small businesses, who have an interest and the resources to support a specific agency requirement.

Do federal agencies really use the information they receive to make a decision on how requirements are set aside?

Contracting officers have many options, small business set aside, 8a, HUBZone, Woman-owned, Service Disabled Veteran owned and in certain cases, full and open – so many choices!  Some set aside requirements are regulatory but for those that aren’t, according to contracting officers we’ve spoken with, many set aside decisions are made based upon responses the agency receives when they post a sources sought.  So, what is a sources sought and why should you care?  Are you a small company wondering how you have time to respond to these agency postings?

Attend this lunch and learn to find out about what a sources sought is and why you should respond if it is a project you are truly interested in bidding AND take away a template that will assist you in saving time when responding to sources sought.
