If you’ve submitted a response to a solicitation but you weren’t awarded the contract it can be very disappointing…all that time and effort seems wasted. But a debriefing can be a great chance to identify your company’s strengths and weaknesses, and help you to focus on improving future proposals

The Debrief will Include:
- Any significant weaknesses or deficiencies in your proposal
- The overall evaluated price
- A technical rating of your offer, as well as that of the winning proposal
- The agency’s rationale for the award
- For commercial products, the make and model of the item to be delivered by the awarded company
The Debrief will NOT Include:
- A detailed, point-by-point comparison of your proposal with those of other offers
- Trade secrets or confidential manufacturing processes
- Confidential financial information such as cost breakdowns, profit, or indirect cost rates; or the names of references.
