OCP’s Acquisition Planning Portal contains information helpful to prospective contractors, engineers, architects and vendors about contracts that are expected to be advertised for bids by various District agencies between October 1st and September 30th of each year.


 The purpose of the District of Columbia’s Office of Contract and Procurement’s (OCP) Acquisition Planning Portal is to partner with various District agencies to develop scope of work, specifications, and solicitation documents and to promote full and open competition for upcoming acquisitions.  Likewise, OCP’s Acquisition Planning Portal (Portal) will provide industry with planned schedules for all acquisitions to ensure that vendors are able bid on those projects.


With respect to the contract descriptions and other data included in this Portal, readers should note that the information is provided for general information only and are not to be construed as final document. The exact description of the scope of work and other pertinent information concerning an individual contract will be found in the contract specifications and drawings or solicitation documents which may be obtained by prospective bidders when solicitation begins. Most contracts for construction, procurement of capital equipment and professional services are awarded after a competitive process, including sealed bids for construction (IFB) and competitive requests for proposals (RFP) for professional services.


Some aspects of contracting are common to all District agencies:

  1. District agencies are expected to spend $634 Million in FY16, of which at least 50 percent ($317Million) must be spent with CBEs.
  2.  Utilizing the Acquisition Portal to increase transparency and increase support for small businesses across the District.
  3. District agencies seek the most qualified contractors, suppliers, and professional services firms in their respective fields, including firms owned by CBEs for which special efforts are made to ensure appropriate and meaningful participation. We pledge to do our part to make all projects successful for the both agencies and industry.

Public notices of solicitations are normally published on OCP’s website at ocp.dc.gov
