Discussion and Evaluation

If the Postal Service organization responsible for the operational area potentially affected by the unsolicited proposal deems it innovative and potentially beneficial to business objectives, submitters will be asked to provide either a more complete written proposal and/or an oral presentation to a Postal Service purchase team. No confidential or proprietary information should be presented at this stage of review.

If the Postal Service determines that the unsolicited proposal is not potentially beneficial, the submitter will be so notified. If the Postal Service determines that the proposal is potentially beneficial, further discussions may be held. If the Postal Service determines that a more thorough evaluation of the proposal can only be gained by the review of confidential or proprietary information, the Postal Service will consider, and, if appropriate, enter into a mutual Nondisclosure Agreement with the submitter.
