Acquisition Specialist (Non-scoring member)

Project Procurement Manager

Systems Engineering Lead/Manager

Implementation Lead/Manager

Quality Assurance Lead/Manager

Sponsor Representative (at least 2 – policy and program)

User Representatives

Other Subject Matter Experts, as needed

The Procurement Official and Legal staff are available as advisors, but generally are not considered primary reviewers. This is because they do not have enough program and project experience to know how well the bidder proposals address the users’ business need. DGS and Legal assist primarily in the area of procurement process and legal/contractual questions.

Describe the specific roles and responsibilities for the proposal evaluation.

The following summarizes the responsibilities of the team members.
