Your technical reports stink. There’s little doubt about it.
Whenever I go into classroom training, it is universally felt by contracting officers and contracting specialists that technical reports are poorly done and add nothing to proposal analysis. After all, saying you accept everything the contractor proposes doesn’t give me insight into the technical knowledge you have.
I suspect this has to do with a few things.
A) There is little or no formal training on writing technical reports.
B) Contracting officers saying “It’s ok this one time”, except it turns into every time.
C) Contracting officers and specialists aren’t asking for the right things.
There is something brewing on this front to improve the situation. Stay classy and stay tuned.
