Noblis Expert Bill Morris Pens Acquisition Success Series Ahead of Acquisition Excellence 2016 Conference

In “Achieving Acquisition Success”, Morris examines what it takes to complete a successful government contract acquisition

Noblis Acquisition Tools Center of Excellence leader Bill Morris, along with Noblis employees Hugo Bonuccelli, Jeff Mohan, Robert Maccubbin, and Ingrida Petersons, will be attending Acquisition Excellence 2016 in Washington, D.C. They will be showcasing Noblis’ acquisition capabilities, tools, and services, and sharing insight to featured solutions that can help agencies transition to Network Services 2020 (NS2020) Enterprise Infrastructure Services (EIS), GSA’s $50B next-generation networking contract.

For over 30 years, Noblis has been helping government COs achieve success in their acquisition programs. Ninety-nine percent of our acquisitions have completed without a successful protest, and we have helped our clients to the tune of over $350 billion in acquisition value. The Achieving Acquisition Success series highlights Noblis acquisition experts as they explore four main themes used to help our clients successfully navigate government contract acquisition:

  1. In the first article, the strategy and planning phase, Bill and Carolyn Rathburn explain how important it is to have a clearly defined source selection strategy which serves as the “playbook” for the total process.
  2. Article two demonstrates how to correctly define the contract requirements, in the solicitation development phase, with expert insights from Hugo Bonnuccelli.
  3. In part three, the source selection phase, Bill and Jim Soltys highlight the significance of choosing the right evaluation team, which can be the difference between success and failure.
  4. Finally, part four explains how the implementation of effective tools helps avoid delays brought on by evaluation inefficiencies to avoid possible protests, with insights from Robert Maccubbin.
