Task order season is about to begin. Are you ready?

Winning and successfully managing federal contracts is more complicated today than it was just a few years ago. Competition is increasing, requirements seem to be continually changing, and new GWAC vehicles are being rolled out, while others are being retired.

It takes a lot of time, money, and resources bidding on GWAC Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts. And winning the GWAC IDIQ is no guarantee that you’ve won the business. It means you are pre-approved to bid on the task orders that flow through the IDIQ.

The process of managing task orders can be labor-intensive and complicated—especially if you are dealing with multiple GWACs. Each one will be different and add to the hundreds of task orders you need to review, respond to, and manage.


Ready, set, go!

The ability to quickly and strategically respond to task orders is a driver for success in government contracting. It isn’t unusual for many task orders to be released on a single day, or to have little turn time between task order release and proposal submission.

The bottom line is that the task order process is becoming so complex—to review and manage task orders effectively requires using automation and artificial intelligence.

TechnoMile Task Order Management (TOM) solution helps government contractors streamline their operations by automating workflows, task order ingestion, and task order management.  TOM, automatically pulls relevant data from IDIQ contract vehicles directly into the system. It uses AI and pre-built business queries to assist teams in identifying the task orders they should pursue. Filters can be set so that only the task orders the organization can bid on are pulled into the system. This helps teams triage task orders more quickly, identify ones that need immediate attention, and determine what to bid on and how to bid.

In addition to automatic task order ingestion, the TechnoMile solution also lets you incorporate data from other internal and external systems and includes an opportunity management portal that makes it easy to sift through potential contract opportunities efficiently.  It also helps teams keep up with changing requirements, compare current and historical data, track wins and losses, and competitors.

Partners are an essential part of the proposal process. The TechnoMile TOM solution also embeds workflow automation to streamline working with partners. Information can be automatically distributed to relevant partners, reducing the amount of time it takes to evaluate partners, assemble teams, and submit proposals. You can also repurpose material from one proposal to another to minimize propsal submission times.
