USFCR Academy Live: LPTA - When Your Offer is Evaluated on Cost

The cliche that government contracts are based solely on cost is sometimes actually accurate. The government calls these situations, “lowest price technically acceptable” or LPTA. They are required to tell you the evaluation factors, so if you see LPTA on a contract solicitation, you need to know how to adjust.

In this webinar, you will learn how to make sure that when cost is the most important evaluation factor, you can still be competitive. You’ll also learn about the specific platforms for making offers or bids. The DLA’s Internet Bid Board System (DIBBS) is one example of such a platform.

Often times, LPTA contracts, are automated in their evaluation procedure. This makes them quick to win, but unforgiving with error. Master these situations with the content in this webinar.

Webinar Topics

  1. How to recognize an LPTA contract
  2. Procedures on third-party reverse auction sites
  3. DIBBS - We could create a course about DIBBS, but here we’ll help you understand how to submit offers through the bid board.
