Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; A common complaint among many contractors working with Army Material Command is that debriefings do not provide enough information to completely satisfy contractors as to why they were not selected for contract award when they are an unsuccessful offeror. This thesis reviews the regulations that cover debriefings, looks at the current debriefing process and recommends ways to improve debriefings within Army Material Command. A survey of contracting officers within Army Material Command and unsuccessful offerors that contract with Army Material Command was done to determine what improvements could be made to the debriefing process. The respondents indicated that many modifications could be done to improve the process. Some of the thesis's recommendations are: debriefings should be offered to all unsuccessful offerors, debriefings should be conducted in a timely manner, there should be no limits placed on who may attend debriefings, and evaluators should participate in debriefings. Additionally, more information should be given out to unsuccessful offerors by covering strengths and weaknesses, covering all evaluated areas, debriefing down to the sub-factor level and releasing the Source Selection Authority decision document; http://archive.org/details/debriefingunsucc00nutb; Captain...

When a contractor expends a great deal of time and expense to prepare a proposal in response to a high-dollar Government Request for Proposals and award of the resultant contract is made to another contractor, the unsuccessful offeror will often protest since the post-award debriefing does not satisfy his concerns as to why his was not the best offer. This thesis reviews the current written guidance pertaining to post-award debriefings, looks at the current installation level debriefing process and recommends ways to improve debriefings. Results of a questionnaire sent to installation contracting officers and offerors who contract with them indicate: the current debriefing process is not working as well as it should; the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act (FASA) should help improve the debrief; and further improvements are possible. Some of the thesis' recommendations are: make the post-award debrief an integral part of the process for key technical personnel; give weaknesses, in writing, to the unsuccessful offerors with notification of award; if requested, release all information that the contractor would receive under protest discovery procedures; provide analytical training for contracting officers; use videos and other types of training on "how not to" and "how to" conduct a post-award debriefing.; NA; NA; U.S. Army (U.S.A.) author.
