Part II: Unsolicited Proposals

The Department of the Treasury consists of the Departmental Offices and the operating bureaus. The Departmental Offices are primarily responsible for the formulation of policy and management of Treasury as a whole, while the operating bureaus carry out the specific operations assigned to Treasury.

If your firm can provide a unique and innovative product or service which may be of interest to the Departmental Offices or one or more of these Bureaus, one possible marketing path is through the submission of an unsolicited proposal. You should be aware, however, that most unsolicited proposals are not accepted. If you’re considering an unsolicited proposal, we encourage you to take the following steps before you spend time and effort preparing a proposal:

  • Review Treasury’s Contract Forecast, which is provides a forecast of contract opportunities, historical purchasing data, and subcontracting opportunities.
  • Register on the System for Award Management in order to do business with the government. In addition, USA.gov and SBA.gov provides information on doing business with the Federal Government;
  • Carefully and objectively assess your product/service to ensure that it is, in fact, innovative and unique, and that it is not already commercially available to the government; and
  • Research Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) subpart 15.6 which provides specific criteria that must be met before an unsolicited proposal can be submitted.

If you’ve taken these steps and believe that you can make a valid unsolicited proposal that may be of interest to the Treasury Department, your firm may submit its unsolicited proposal according to the links provided below.
