    This session will involve an industry role play of a company having an internal discussion on bid strategy and teaming decisions. The mock discussion will illustrate the importance of the clarity, consistency, and early availability of the acquisition strategy, statement of work requirements, and evaluation criteria to industry decision making on bidding, teaming arrangements, competitive analysis, pricing, solutions proposed, delivery risk, and capture/pursuit strategy.
