About the Learning from Bids Service
The Learning from Bids service provides feedback to eligible suppliers looking to improve their bidding strategy. Using a supplier's unsuccessful bid as an example, the service explores the strengths and weaknesses of the supplier's procedural approach to bidding. Suppliers will receive a free analysis and confidential report. The goal is to leave suppliers with best practices they can implement in future solicitations and give them an in-depth understanding of how the federal procurement process works.
