Source Selection requires a lot of up front acquisition planning from understanding the competitive environment, preparing the statement of work, the type of contract vehicle, price vs value trade-offs, to pre-qualifications and the importance of selecting the right source selection team. 

This process should not only be the responsibility of the government acquisition professional, but it is just as important for the contractor who may be interested in responding to the request for proposal (RFP). 

During this 90-minute program led by Attorney Jeremy Becker-Welts, will review the steps in a source selection process and discuss some of challenges facing both the government and the contractor before and during the selection process.
