We share our insights and take action very early in an acquisition process. We help craft acquisition strategies in a manner that will provide open competition to the maximum extent practical in order to assure equal and fair competitions. KMP develops acquisition strategies, crafts Requests for Proposal (RFP) and solicitations, structures contracts-terms and conditions, conducts and/or participates in source selection processes (e.g., past performance/performance risk assessment, cost/price analyses, pre-award surveys, etc.), and conducts negotiations on behalf of the government. To the extent that is practical, KMP engages in acquisition activities at the start of the acquisition cycle and remains engaged throughout the process (e.g. from cradle-to-grave). KMP acts on behalf of our government and commercial clients to manage the acquisition of a broad range of goods, works and services that are requested while ensuring that all acquisition transactions are conducted in strict compliance with the principles, rules and procedures set out in Acquisition Procedural Manual.
