Do you work on acquisition documents for a living? Then you know that, from time to time, you need some requirements language to address a particular topic or issue that isn’t at your fingertips. You may contact other writers in your organization only to find no one has what you need. You could create it from scratch, but wouldn’t it be easier to use existing language as a template or starting point?
The System Shall is a place where procurement professionals can find examples of requirements language for RFPs, RFOs, and RFIs.
Our ultimate goal is to improving the quality of acquisitions across government and industries to create more value.
If you see a topic that isn’t covered, I encourage you to reach out so we can improve the site together.
