The amount of time required during the contracting process from the solicitation of bids through contract award can be significant. Two of the main problem areas are evaluating the contractor’s proposal and completing the negotiation process. The SNAP system was developed to simplify Negotiations with Automated Pricing using the microcomputer. SNAP can track three separate positions during negotiations and provide hour/dollar summaries for each of these positions by cost account, lot, department, and Work Breakdown Structure (WBS). Evaluation worksheets and department summaries can be produced to provide the evaluators with different perspectives of the same work effort. SNAP will also price the hours/dollars associated with any or all of the positions, with and without burdens, by Contract Line Idem Number (CLIN) and/or lot at any time during the negotiation process, allowing the negotiator to compare the negotiated price to the available budget. SNAP makes available to the evaluators and negotiators a variety of reports which, when actively used during the contract evaluation and negotiation process, may achieve additional cost savings as well as decrease the actual amount of time required for negotiations.
