pre award period what is it why is it important
Pre Award PeriodWhat is it / Why is it important

Period of time allotted to potential best value vendor (aka the Expert) to:

Think about and preplan the project

Set a plan for its delivery / clarify that your proposal is accurate

Identify the risks and issues that could cause the plan to deviate

Identify what you don’t know and when you will know it and how the plan could change based upon what you discover

Set plans to minimize those risks from occurring

Address all the concerns and risks of the client

Pre Award PeriodWhat is it / Why is it important

Period of time allotted to potential best value vendor (aka the Expert) to:

Know how they are being successful and adding value (measurement)

What metrics you will use

What is the current baseline condition we are comparing against

Identify what you need from the client and have a plan for getting it

Have completely aligned expectations between all parties so everyone knows what is going to transpire and what they are supposed to do

note to vendor and client do not work in a vacuum
Note to Vendor and Client -Do Not Work in a Vacuum!!!!!
  • The Pre Award period is a time for the client and Vendor to interact
    • Maximize effort BEFORE the event begins
  • The Vendor should not work in a vacuum
    • There should be regular meetings between vendor and client
    • An Outcome of Today’s meeting: PA Period Meeting Schedule
  • Complete honesty
  • Optimize within client constraints
  • Vendor should be the leader/driver
  • All critical parties/groups should be coordinated with
1 scope
1. Scope
  • Projects need to have clear scope at the start of the service
  • Everything within the expectation/budget
    • Minimize/Eliminate Client/User Scope Changes
  • Detailed Scope
    • Scope identifies what is included and what is not included
    • For example, start with “Zero Risk” Scope and work backwards
    • Conservative is best
  • If risks exists between scope and client intent they must be identified
    • Resolve alignment and expectations before signing the contract
    • Identify path to identifying unknowns during contract
2 cost fees
2. Cost/Fees
  • Details of fees, payments, etc
  • Clear and simple movement of money identified
  • Cost can be adjusted based upon value adding options
    • RAVA Plan
    • Additional risk elimination actions
3 milestone schedule
3. Milestone Schedule
  • Project schedule that can be worked from
    • Simple to read
    • Simple to use
  • Intent: Minimize Risk = Help All Parties be more efficient and accountable
  • Contents
    • Major Activities, Deliverables, and Milestones (linked to metrics)
    • Client Action Items clearly identified (e.g. red)
    • Risky areas / decision points clearly identified (e.g. green)
4 uncontrolled risks list
4. Uncontrolled Risks List
  • List of Risk Vendor does not control
    • From RAVA and any place else
  • Example Format
    • Risk #1: Description of risk (or why it is a risk)
    • Solution: Provide your solution. Because this document is not constrained by a page limit, it is acceptable to add more detail to your previous solution provided in your RAVA plan. Make sure it is identified at what point you have done everything reasonably possible. Identify the impact if the risk still exists after you have done everything reasonably possible.

      • Step 3:
      • Step 4:
      • Step 5:
      • Etc.
    • Action If Risk Occurs: Similar to above, but a list of action items once risk occurs
    • Expected Impact if Risk Occurs: For example, “If we have done the above X steps and the risk still exists, there will be an impact to the …budget…schedule…of $XX.XX…XX days.”
4 identified risks lists
4. Identified Risks Lists
  • List of Risks that have been previously identified
    • All other bidders’ risks
    • All client technical concerns, risk, issues, and bugaboos
    • All user concerns, risk, issues, etc.
  • Same format as for Uncontrolled Risks List
    • Risk
    • Solution/Plan to Minimize
    • Action if Risk Occurs
    • Impact is Risk Occurs
  • If a risk is not a risk, just say why it is not a risk…
uncontrollable risk 1
Uncontrollable Risk 1

The client has agreed to move storage boxes prior to the NTP. The boxes are blocking the wall where we will install the new electrical equipment. If the material is not moved we will not be able to install the equipment. If material is not moved we will perform the following:

Immediately notify the client and track in our weekly report. We will mobilize and perform other functions. However, if material is not moved by 2nd week, this will cause delays.

If the client cannot get the material moved, we can move the material into another room (on the same floor) at no additional cost or time delay. The client will have to move the material back.

Or, we can rent a storage container for the duration of the project and move the material into storage and back into the room after completion. This will cost $1,500 and add 1 week to our schedule.

uncontrollable risk 2
Uncontrollable Risk 2
  • One of the biggest risk on this service is falling debris from the roof deck onto personnel or equipment below the deck. On this service, the personnel and equipment are protected since there is a dropped ceiling beneath the deck. The PM (client) has assured us that these tiles have been installed properly and we have randomly spot checked areas to determine that they will perform. However, if for some reason the ceiling tile fails, we will perform the following:
      • Immediately stop all work and determine the extent of damage
      • Identify if work can proceed as is, or if additional protection is needed
      • We can modify our schedule to work off-hours to protect falling debris from hitting personnel, but this will not protect equipment. There will be no impact to cost or time if we have to work off-hours.
      • We can purchase large tarps (100’x100’) and place them beneath the ceiling tiles. This will protect both personnel and equipment. These special tarps will cost an additional $5K and will take an additional 2 weeks to setup and move.
      • Identify any actions required from the client
5 client action item list
5. Client Action Item List
  • Client Action Item List
    • List of all actions/tasks that the vendor requires from the client
    • Each Action Item will have a:
      • Activity
      • Person Accountable in the Client organization
      • Agreed to Due Date
6 weekly risk reports what is it why is it important
6. Weekly Risk ReportsWhat is it / Why is it important
  • What is it:
    • Excel Spreadsheet that tracks unforeseen risks on a service
  • Why is it important:
    • Allows vendors to document unresolved client issues
    • Allows vendors the ability to show they can manage a service through risk minimization
    • Allows vendors to document all client decisions
    • Provides PM a weekly/monthly analysis of all services
    • Will be used to monitor the progress and performance of the entire client organization (this isn’t just for a specific contractor or a specific service...there is a bigger picture)
  • How much effort:
    • Minimal (less than 5 minutes), unless contractor did not preplan, or client making decisions
weekly reporting system sample
Weekly Reporting System (Sample)
  • Excel Spreadsheet that tracks unforeseen risks on a service
  • The client will setup and send to vendor once Award/NTP issued
  • Vendor must submit the report every week (Friday).
  • The final service rating will be impacted by the accuracy and timely submittal of the WRS
6 weekly risk report
