Systems engineering plays a prominent role supporting the program manager and contracting office in the preparation and conveyance of technical information to industry during the solicitation process.  It is the responsibility of the Systems Engineer to ensure that contracting technical documents accurately and clearly communicate the Government’s requirements including mandatory design, build, test, certification, approval, and acceptance criteria.
