IA-BD Study RFP Q&A is DOA
The SEC’s contracting office has released a lengthy Q and A containing responses to 51 questions about the scope of the IA-BD study.
Unless you’re a die-hard potential contractor or you are suffering from insomnia, we suggest you skip it. Nearly all of the answers simply referred back to statements already contained in the RFP.
Over and over and over again.
Needless to say, it does not make for pleasant reading.
Consider, for example, the following sentence:
"The Solicitation provides that the Contractor would be subject to the oversight of the Technical Point of Contact and would consult with SEC staff."
That particular gem appeared no fewer than 21 times in various answers in the staff’s response.
