Abstract : The U.S. Government issues a solicitation document known as the Invitation for Bid (IFB). This is the first step in a process known as the needed deliverable or service, but also statutes, regulations and assorted legal clauses. The IFB then becomes a voluminous bureaucratic document that is difficult to comprehend by even the most experienced of contractors. This study presented the problems of the IFB from the contractor's and Government's viewpoints with an eye towards streamlining the IFB package to make it more understandable and usable. Suggestions are made towards this end.
