Multiple-award indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts, or IDIQs, are now the primary federal purchasing method for technology and are increasingly central to professional services, construction, transportation and other categories. The proliferation of IDIQ contract vehicles in recent years has made it difficult for:
- acquisition professionals in government to keep up with best practices and
- for potential bidders to track opportunities.
Understanding the operating principles of the IDIQ market can:
- help government get value and also meet regulatory and legislative requirements and
- help industry maximize business.

- How the life-cycle of IDIQs affects ordering behavior.
This fast-paced webinar will address the above issues and more while giving you the opportunity to ask our experts for advice about your unique concerns.
