What is a no bid government contract? It is a type of response your company submits to a solicitation you received.
Why should you respond at all if you are not interested? Because, there are many agencies which regularly drop vendors off notification lists for upcoming bids opportunities.
Usually if a company does not respond 3 times, the agency feels the company is no longer interested in doing business with them. Many agencies send out thousands of e mail notices to companies who registered as a vendor but never respond. In order to stream line the agency vendor list, they delete non responsive bidders.
When you look though a bid proposal, there usually is a no bid selection you can make. It is even easier if this is an electronic submission. Take the time to do this for every bid you receive based on the preferences you selected for your company products and services.
There is a no bid vendors list your company will show up on. What this means to the buyers and the agency is, you are still interested in doing business with them. This time, you simply are passing on the specific bid.
Take an extra minute and do not get dropped off and miss a bid which you have been waiting for as a result.
