Three Phases in Ordering Services
Step 1: Contact the Program Management Office to discuss the tasks, scope, services and products that you or your client/customer needs. The PMO staff – CEO Eleanor Thornton and COO Mike Thornton, Sr. – will help you decide if Visionary has the right team for your needs.
Step 2: Conduct and present Market Research which is encouraged by the FAR under section—FAR Part 10 Market Research (FAC 2005-24).
Step 3: Federal customers email their respective Contracting Center (CC) staff. Be prepared to use market research to provide details on your work requirements as a "starter set" for the Contracting Officer's Representative (COR)/contract staff to begin Performance Work Statement (PWS) initiation and compile the Request for Proposal (RFP) documentation.
Step 4: Contracting Center staff prepare the PWS and Independent Government Cost Estimate (IGCE). The COR/contract staff will work with the Federal customer to develop a legally sufficient PWS containing scope, background, applicable documents, tasks and objectives. The Contracting Center staff will work with you to draft the required IGCE as an estimate of Level of Effort for contractor performance. The IGCE and PWS will be adjusted as necessary to meet your needs and available funding or those of your client/customer.
Step 5: Federal customer provides funding to their Contracting Center. Funding is provided to cover the estimated cost of contractor performance and all associated administrative fees.
Step 6: Contracting Center releases procurement Task Order Request for Proposal (TORFP) documents. The Contracting Center staff will prepare and release the solicitation and any related procurement documents to obtain quotes from contractors.
Step 7: Contracting Center staff reviews all cost and technical quotes with the Federal customer. Staff review all offers received and draft evaluations and recommendations for the task order award. Customer will be offered an opportunity to participate during this process. The contracting center staff, along with the customer, will provide an evaluation for Contracting Officer (CO) consideration and approval.
Step 8: Contracting Center CO Awards the Task Order. The customer and contractor are notified, copies of the task order are distributed, and performance begins.
Step 9: Contract Administration. The Contracting Center will authorize a COR to perform post-award contract administration. They will perform a variety of tasks to assist you or your customer throughout contract execution and closure.
