    The Polaris team is pleased to share the updated draft of the solicitation submission instructions and evaluation criteria (Sections L and M). Substantial feedback was received to the draft RFP issued in December 2020. That feedback, along with recent customer and industry discussions, was used to make beneficial updates to the solicitation. The changes made will encourage maximum participation by small businesses, emphasize customer requirements, and reduce barriers to entry for small businesses.

    We are thankful for you, our dedicated industry professionals. We've received much feedback regarding the planned release timeline of the Polaris solicitations. In an effort to provide all of our stakeholders time to celebrate this holiday season with friends and family, the solicitations for the small business and WOSB pools are planned for release in January 2022. The HUBZone and SDVOSB solicitations will follow. Thank you for your continued support.

    Good morning! I understand that the Final RFP is planned to be released no earlier than Fall 2021. Do you anticipate it will be released before the end of Q4FY2021 or do you think it will be pushed into Q1FY2022? Thank you very much for your time!
