  1. Both your company and your competitor’s company will qualify under the HUBZone Act (FAR 19.5).
  2. Based upon the scope of work required, your initial estimates for the contract will exceed $150,000. Therefore, you are willing to offer incentives to the Navy.

  1. Examine two (2) reasons why your business would qualify under the basic concepts of the HUBZone Set-Aside Procedures. Provide a rationale for your response.
  2. Analyze the primary way(s) in which a multiyear contract would benefit both the Navy and your business.
  3. Determine whether your bid proposal should be based on a fixed-price, a cost-reimbursement, or a time-and-materials type of contract. Provide a rationale for your response.
  4. Determine the category of incentives that you are willing to offer (i.e., cost, schedule, or performance). Provide a rationale for your response.
  5. Determine whether your bid proposal should be a technical, management, or cost proposal. Provide a rationale for your response.
  6. Speculate on five (5) potential risk factors that you will need to consider if your company is awarded the contract. Provide a rationale for your response.
  7. Use at least three (3) quality references Note: Wikipedia and other related websites do not qualify as academic resources.
