    Wouldn't you think someone already has what they want and they are just going through the motions of entertaining bids.

    I spent some time in government contracting and GH you’re pretty spot on.

    Not saying those requirements or the agency that owns that RFI/RFQ fall within this scenario, but... I’ve seen it more than I have not.

    We received more RFP’s and RFI’s from agencies that not only knew what all their requirements were (not always that well defined.) but knew the exact product they wanted to fill those requirements. Furthermore I have seen numerous times where the agencies requirements were just reworded product descriptions for the actual product they wanted. Sometimes they did not even wordsmith it. They literally copied the product description and features and converted those to requirements. Yeah. I think they called that loaded dice, fixed deck and numerous other shady terms. In other words, ops norm for the gov’t.
