Report Keeping price volumes from the technical team in Contract Award Process Posted May 6, 2021 13 hours ago, Vern Edwards said: It's an old practice. I encountered it in my first Air Force source selection, which was in 1975. The idea, as I recall, was that seeing prices might affect technical evaluators' assessments of technical proposals. I don't recall whether it was official policy or just a practice norm. As for policy today, see FAR 15.305(a)(4). Thank you Vern. Sounds a bit like the Pot Roast Principle but I think there is a consensus here that seeing prices might affect technical evaluators' assessments of technical proposals.
