GSA Vendor Communication Plan
The GSA Vendor Communication Plan outlines efforts to reduce unnecessary barriers, publicize communication opportunities, and prioritize engagement opportunities for high-risk, complex programs or those that fail to attract new vendors during re-competitions. The GSA Vendor Communication Plan is in response to the following OFPP guidance:
- "Myth-Busting": Addressing Misconceptions to Improve Communication with Industry during the Acquisition Process, February 2, 2011
- “Myth-Busting 2”: Addressing Misconceptions and Further Improving Communication During the Acquisition Process", May 7, 2012
GSA has appointed an Ombudsman to review complaints from Contractors and ensure they are afforded a fair opportunity to be considered.
