It's easy to work with us when you have a requirement in mind. When you opt for our assisted acquisition services, a TMA Program Project Manager will work closely with you to:
Each of these five steps is described in greater detail below.
The initial statement of requirements may be a brief description of the work required. TMA Program staff will help you refine this statement using a template that helps you clearly and concisely describe your needs and expectations. Some of the main areas of importance include:
We work with agencies through the use of an Interagency Agreement. The funding document can be the same form your agency uses. Your TMA Program Project Manager will assist you in completing all the necessary paperwork.
The process of selecting a provider for a project is known as a Task Order Competition (TOC). During the TOC, the agency representative will be working closely with a TMA Program Project Manager to ensure this process is as seamless as possible. We participate in the selection with you. A Technical Evaluation Panel (TEP), with a minimum of three panel members, will be assembled to analyze the written proposals and provide constructive feedback on the providers’ strengths, weaknesses, overall rating, and risk factor. The TEP will then reach a consensus on the most qualified provider. If your agency is unable to make a selection from the written proposals, an Oral Task Order Competition (OTOC) may be held.
The TMA Program Project Manager, Contracting Officer, and your agency representatives will conduct a meeting with the selected provider to outline project goals and clarify the roles and expectations of all parties. Discussions in this meeting will lay the foundation for building your project plan.
The TMA Program Project Manager takes on the burden of project and contract administration activities so that you can focus your attention on project oversight and direction. Monitoring work orders, processing invoices, monitoring spending, and tracking progress will reside in the capable hands of the TMA Program Project Manager. Alone, these services are critical to the accomplishment of any project. But the greater value is the advisory and troubleshooting role that the TMA Program Project Manager will play in helping you make informed decisions about matters that can have long-term implications. This "government-to-government" partnership offers insight to best practices and lessons learned from hundreds of TMA Program projects successfully completed over the past 20 years.
Working with OPM has never been easier. We start with an Interagency Agreement. A separate funding document is required to transfer funds—this can be the same form your agency uses. We also have a variety of templates with instructions and guidelines to help with your market research and requirements development.
