The Department of State just released a presolitication announcement that it intends to issue 25 contracts worth $100,000,000 each. Each contract would be for a Five year period. It intends to set aside contracts for Women, for Service Disabled Veterans, for Hub Zone, Small Business and 8(a) companies.
I have been working on this since August of last year and sense a sincere interest on the part of the lead architectural buyer to achieve these set-aside goals; however, if there are not enough from each category to express interest in bidding, then the number of contracts for the designated groups will be reduced.
I am doing everything I can to spread the news of the availability of these contracts via email and my workshops.
