Aerospace Drones is gaining visibility in the highly competitive drone industry. More importantly, your organization’s reputation with the Energy Department for quality instrumentation and reliability did not go unnoticed by other government agencies.
Your profits will now allow you to reinvest in both hardware and software R&D and expand operations. This means you are ready to compete for Department of Defense (DoD) contracts. You are currently researching an RFP that will be worth over $600,000 to your expanding company.
DoD contracts are a new ballgame, so you have your work cut out for you. To prepare for this contract submission, write a 2–3 page business report that communicates relevant information succinctly and efficiently. Follow the instructions below.
- Describe the simplified acquisition method that best fits your company, including a detailed rationale for why it was selected. Note: Remember you are a small business that will have a massive expansion if you win this contract.
- Analyze all parts and sections of the UCF (Uniform Contract Format) that could present a problem in this scenario. Suggest how you will adjust your approach to turn the problems you have identified into strengths for your small company. (Hint: Remember you are a new small business.)
- Use three sources to support your writing. Choose sources that are credible, relevant, and appropriate. Cite each source listed on your source page at least one time within your assignment. For help with research, writing, and citation, access the library or review library guides
