Question description

This is the scenario:

 I have small floor refinishing business that provides a specialty-coating product for ceramic tile and marble floors. I’m ready to expand my business by competing for Navy contracts at the local base. I have received a Request for Proposal (RFP) #123456789, dated 07/14/2014. I also find out through a reliable source that a local competitor has also received an RFP for a similar type of product and service. I’m now ready to begin considering the factors needed for your proposal based on RFP #123456789, dated 07/14/2014. Remember that another local competitor intends to submit a proposal as well.

Additional factors to consider are:

  The other local competitor has removed their name from consideration and has requested to become your company’s sub-contractor due to your company’s patent on the specialty coating.

  Your existing floor equipment is dated. However, you have learned that the Navy base has floor equipment which is not currently being used.


Write a six  (6) page paper in which you:

  Determine the payment type (i.e., receiving progress payments, performance-based payments, or partial payments) you will use in your bid. Provide a rationale for your response.

  Determine the approach and the key terms that you would consider in requesting the use of the Navy’s floor equipment. Provide a rationale for your response.

  Propose the quality control and inspection procedures that you believe should be included in your proposal. Provide a rationale for your response.

  Determine, because of your company’s private patent on the specialty floor coating, whether the Navy would or would not have a patent infringement objection for the use of the coating. Provide a rationale for your response.

  Determine the mechanism for contract closeout your company would use with the Navy. Provide a rationale for your response.
