If you work in the Government acquisition world, this podcast is for you. (not just for Contracting Officers!)
In this encore presentation of one of the earliest Contracting Officer Podcast episodes, Kevin and Paul provide an overview of the Acquisition Time Zones. The Acquisition Time Zones are a foundational concept of the podcast. Each zone aligns to a phase of the government acquisition process. The Acquisition Time Zones help our listeners understand how the content discussed in each podcast fits into the overall government acquisition process.
The Acquisition Time Zones are, in chronological order:
The Requirements Zone (Episode 012)
The Market Research Zone (Episode 013)
The Request for Proposal (or “RFP”) Zone (Episode 014)
The Source Selection Zone (Episode 015)
This episode provides a brief overview of each zone. The episodes above dive into the details of when the zones begin and end, what types of communication are allowed, and what government and industry professionals are doing (and thinking) during each zone.
