Briefing Overview Unsolicited proposals allow federal agencies to receive a proposal and contract directly with vendors without a formal solicitation or request for proposal (RFP).
Unsolicited proposals allow federal agencies to receive a proposal and contract directly with vendors without a formal solicitation or request for proposal (RFP).
