Doing business with federal agencies has unique opportunities and challenges, particularly when it comes to procuring IT solutions.
On one hand, the U.S. federal government is the world’s largest buyer of IT products and services, so there’s a tremendous need. But acquiring those solutions can be arduous, and managing the intricacies of licensing and pricing can be an ongoing burden.
Government agencies strive to lower the cost of products and services to save taxpayers money. They also aim to shorten “procurement administrative lead time,” or PALT—the time from identification of need to delivery of value—to expedite their missions without delay.

In successful federal government acquisitions, an agency’s needs are met in the most effective, economical, and timely manner. The key to meeting your acquisition objectives? Proper acquisition planning—which begins well before you write your plan document. In other words, plan first, document later.
Whether deploying a ship or a software application, a new acquisition is only as good as its requirements.
Clearly defining your requirements in the RFP results in a less risky contract opportunity, leading to more competition and lower pricing from vendors. All the nuts and bolts of the opportunity—the many small requirements that make up the larger project—need to be captured in a deliberate, methodical fashion. And for transparency into the scope of the acquisition, the complete set of requirements should be shared with all stakeholders.
