How to Check for a Contract Award
In many cases, a government agency does not always inform you that an award determination has been made on a proposal you have submitted.
After you have submitted a proposal, it is important to follow up with the contracting officer to find out if an award has been determined.
What you need:
- The contracting officer email and contact information. This can be located in the original RFP.
- Solicitation # and Solicitation title.
- The date you submitted your proposal.
The email format to the contracting officer:
Hello [CO Name],
Can you please provide award status for solicitation #____________ title ________________? We submitted a bid for this opportunity on [date].
If an award has not been determined yet, can you provide information to indicate an approximate date when an award will be announced?
[Name of contractor]
