Offerors are strongly encouraged, but not required, to participate in a preproposal conference with the Contracting Officer and selected personnel from NIST. The purposes of this conference are:
Because of space limitations, attendance at the preproposal conference is limited to no more than three attendees per potential offeror (including their potential subcontractors). Also, because NIST would require significant time to register non-US citizens for this conference, only US citizens may attend. Finally, the conference room will hold a maximum of fifty persons, so attendance will be limited to the first fifty persons that register.
Potential Offeror personnel that cannot or do not attend the conference in person (including non-US citizens) but would like to call into the conference by telephone may do so as follows:
Start Date: Wednesday, July 1, 2009
End Date: Wednesday, July 1, 2009
Location: Gaithersburg, MD, Building 101, Lecture Room B
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
Registration closes on June 29, 2009.
