Before starting with the CATS+ TORFP Template, agencies should be engaged in the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) process and have a dedicated project manager following Project Management Institute (PMI) or equivalent standards and methods. Agencies also should consider business process analysis, requirements workshops, benchmarking / demonstrations, and gap fit analysis before TORFP writing begins (see definitions below). These activities will help generate sufficient documentation for requirements and other key information for the TORFP. Questions about developing a TORFP may be referred to the DoIT Procurement Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are recommended best practices to help ensure a quality TORFP and timely release. This information is advisory only, some elements may not apply to specific TORFPs.
