The latest IAS TORFP template includes the latest language, terms, and conditions required by statute or by State policy. It also standardizes the IAS TORFP format to facilitate solicitation review.
The Short Form IAS TORFP is significantly less complex than the Long Form, and is intended for less complicated engagements. Consequently, the review timeline is shorter as well:
IAS TORFPs not using the current Short Form IAS TORFP Template will be returned to the agency to place the IAS TORFP in the proper template.
The Long Form IAS TORFP is more complex than the short form, and is used with more complex engagements; therefore the review times are longer.
IAS TORFPs not using the current Long Form IAS TORFP Template will be returned to the agency to place the IAS TORFP in the proper template.
Here are some tips which will shorten the IAS TORFP review time:
Upon return of a draft IAS TORFP to ITPO after agency edits, ITPO may complete a review on a shorter timeline. However, a shorter timeline depends on factors such as: the extent of revisions required in the draft IAS TORFP, the extent to which the agency adopted ITPO recommendations, and ITPO’s solicitation review backlog.
ITPO is available to answer questions about its comments, guidance, and likely timeline.
The number of solicitation review cycles required for a draft IAS TORFP depends on a number of factors, including: whether the latest draft IAS TORFP Template is used, and the extent of revisions required in the draft IAS TORFP. ITPO can often indicate whether it anticipates one final review or multiple additional reviews.
