RunAcquisitionsTM with Noblis

Challenge

As a federal acquisition professional, you know that source selection can be a complex, long-running and expensive process, and frequently faces protests.

After award, your contract management teams must account for every phase of the acquisition lifecycle while also ensuring compliance with all federal and agency-specific regulations. Challenges faced before and after contract award can include:

  • Sequestering and guiding the team, and securing and organizing the data to proactively defend against potential protests.
  • Ensuring the team follows the source-selection plan.
  • Managing an increasingly complex contract portfolio and a regular stream of modifications.
  • Performing quality reviews of deliverables quickly before automated acceptance of unsatisfactory products takes place.
