Government agencies will issue a Sources Sought notice when they are conducting market research to see if a small business can complete a certain scope of contract work. A Request for Quotation is issued by the government when looking for pricing information from contractors. Even though Sources Sought notices and Requests for Proposals are not technically contracts, they are still very important to small businesses for a variety of reasons.
Join the Nebraska PTAC and Charles Mason, Procurement Center Representative for the Nebraska SBA, for a session that looks at these two types of notices to understand what they are, what they ask for, and how they can benefit your business in the government space.
