    What is the purpose of the Development RFP Release Cost Assessment and what responsibility does the Program Manager have in the development, review, approval, and update to this acquisition artifact?


    Answer

    A RFP (Release for Proposal) is a solicitation used in negotiated acquisition to communicate government requirements to prospective contractors and to solicit proposal (DoD Glossary/December 2012). There is no official definition of "Development RFP Release Cost Assessment" in DoD acquisition lexicon nor in the FAR/DFAR. I suspect it is a local derivative used to describe a specific type of RFP. I would suggest contacting the Procuring Contracting Officer (PCO) for clarification.
