Government Proposal: What is a Government Proposal?

A government proposal, sometimes called a government contract proposal, is a response written by a private company to a public government agency for the purchasing of goods or services. Government RFPs are issued whenever an agency is in need of a certain product or service. They are done so in a public matter to make the process fair and to reduce costs.

All federal government proposals are governed by the Federal Acquisition Regulations, and most local government agencies have similar laws that they must abide by. In accordance with the FAR, a request for proposal includes specifics on how the proposal should be prepared and the criteria that will be used for evaluation. As a result, government proposals are often quite lengthy in order to address all of the entailed requirements. The shortest of government proposals are often five to ten pages, while larger proposals can contain hundreds of pages of specifications.

There are no set dates when government proposals will be issued, so being informed of new bids is sometimes a challenge. But with FindRFP’s bid notification service, the challenge of finding bids is eliminated. We do all of the leg work for you. We find the bids that best fit your business needs and we conveniently send them to you daily in one clean, organized email. Once the bids are in your hands it’s completely up to you whether you want to pursue the project. However, if you do encounter a broken link or any other technical problem opening up a proposal, please don’t hesitate to contact FindRFP. Our live support team is always here to help you!
