Proposal Preparation

The proposal preparation instructions for PACTS III provide general guidance for preparing proposals, as well as specific instructions on the format and content of the proposal. The proposal should be organized into the following sections:

  • Cover Letter
  • Table of Contents
  • Executive Summary
  • Technical Approach
  • Management Approach
  • Past Performance
  • Price
  • Attachments

The Cover Letter should include the Offeror’s name, address, and point of contact information. The Table of Contents should provide a list of the major sections and subsections of the proposal. The Executive Summary should provide a brief overview of the proposal. The Technical Approach section should describe the Offeror’s understanding of the requirements and proposed approach. The Management Approach section should describe the Offeror’s staffing plan and management approach. The Past Performance section should provide information on the Offeror’s record of performance on similar contracts. The Price section should provide a detailed breakdown of the proposed prices. The Attachments section should include any additional information that the Offeror wishes to provide.

Self-Scoring Parts

The self-scoring parts of the proposal are contained within the Technical Approach, Management Approach, and Past Performance sections. The Offeror is required to complete a Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s), Attachment(s) 8-10 for each functional category the Offeror is proposing for in workable Excel format. The completed Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) should include documenting all the required fields listed in Attachment(s) 8-10, in the appropriate space designated on the Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) for all the subfactors the Offeror would like to and is able to claim based on the requirements. All claims from the Offeror (including all partnership members) shall be contained within the same Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) for each proposal. Only the information contained within the Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) will be considered in the evaluation; therefore, the Offeror must include all the information it would like the DHS to consider.

The Self-Scoring Sheet(s)/Workbook(s) are used to self-score the Offeror’s proposal against the evaluation criteria and subfactors listed in the RFP. The DHS will evaluate the Offeror’s proposal based on the evaluation criteria and subfactors listed in the RFP, as well as the self-scoring information provided by the Offeror. The self-scoring information will be used to validate the Offeror’s claims and to ensure that the Offeror has provided all the required information. The DHS will evaluate the self-scoring information to determine the Offeror’s score for each subfactor. The self-scoring information will be used as a starting point for the evaluation, but the DHS may adjust the Offeror’s score based on its own evaluation of the proposal. The DHS will evaluate proposals in accordance with the evaluation criteria and subfactors listed in the RFP, and will make award decisions based on the best value to the government.
