Understanding IDIQs: How the New Scorecard Methodology is Revolutionizing IDIQs On Demand

The General Services Administration has developed a revolutionary methodology for evaluating bidders for large multiple-award IDIQs. The new scorecard methodology has or is being used to create the largest professional services, IT services, training and building maintenance IDIQs in the history of the government. For contracting professionals, the methodology offers another means of creating IDIQs other than the traditional tradeoff and LPTA approaches. For industry, the methodology represents a new way of doing business with the government.


During this session:

  • Attendees will learn about the policy and business underpinnings of the scorecard methodology.
  • Attendees will be provided with a comparative analysis of IDIQs created using LPTA, tradeoff and scorecard methodologies.
  • Attendees will be given an understanding of how the scorecard methodology has impacted procurements in the real-world.
