Responders Declaration Document for Strategic Sourcing events starting December 2, 2019
The Office of State Procurement (OSP) reviewed bid factors and contract requirements for sourcing events. In lieu of bid factors and general terms and conditions, OSP will create a Responders Declaration Document that agencies attach to events in the Strategic Sourcing module.
Agencies can find the Responders Declaration Document on the Forms pages on OSP’s website on December 2, 2019. If you have questions about this document, please contact OSP.
Here’s the basic structure of the Responders Declaration Document. The solicitation includes three documents.
2. Attachments/forms (including Responder Declarations)
3. Sample Contract (with exhibits included)
How to find and use the Responders Declaration Document.
The templates for all three documents will be posted on the Forms page for Acquisitions and also the one for Professional/Technical (P/T).
The AMS/Buyer will pull the three templates to a working folder, modify as needed, then upload all three documents to the event.
Responders will download the documents, then create a response, which will include all of the required attachments (including the Responder Declarations, price attachment, references, forms, etc.).
The Table of Contents from the Solicitation helps show the structure.
