All offerors are required to be registered in several systems to propose on future opportunities. It is recommended that offerors interested in potential future opportunities complete registrations in these systems now in order to be prepared to respond timely as contracting opportunities arise:
1. In accordance with FAR 4.1102 (a) All offerors are required to have an active SAM.gov account at the time of bid/quote/proposal submission. You can find a list of resources to assist with registration at the following link: GSAFSD Tier 0 Knowledge Base - Getting Started with Entity Registration
2. USACE Charleston District utilizes the Solicitation Portal through the Procurement Integrated Enterprise Environment (PIEE) system (Formally WAWF) for electronic proposal submission. Instructions for submitting proposals will be specifically outlined in the respective solicitation. However, in order to post an offer to solicitations on the PIEE Solicitation Portal, vendors will first need to register for the PIEE ‘Proposal Manager’ role. Therefore, it is recommended that contractors interested in future opportunities register for the PIEE “Proposal Manager” role at this time.
