12.3.0 Unique IT procurements

For a full discussion on solution-based procurements (subsection 12.3.1 below) please go to Chapter 24 - Requests for Proposals and Competitive Negotiations of this manual. For a full discussion on performance-based contracting (subsection 12.3.2 below) read Chapter 21 - Performance-Based Contracting and Service Level Agreements of this manual. Valuable information is also provided in Chapter 8 - Describing the Need - Specifications and Requirements. It is highly recommended that procurement officials refer to these additional chapters to follow specific technical/functional/performance requirements and solicitation guidance that is not duplicated here, but that will greatly impact the approach and time for developing the requirements definition, scope statement and SOW documents.
