The purpose of this guidebook is to provide Air Force Program Office engineering and management personnel with information that will help them prepare Requests for Proposal RFPs for acquisition of software embedded in weapon systems. While this guidebook is oriented primarily toward procurements required under AFR 70-15 and AFR 800-2, its concepts and procedures, appropriately tailored, are recommended for lower-dollar and less complex procurements. This guidebook describes the structure and function of the Statement of Work SOW and RFP with special emphasis on software acquisition under the AFR 800- series of Air Force regulations. It provides methods for defining the elements of a SOW and a method of organizing them. This guidebook also presents methods for RFP preparation with emphasis on making it a clear, concise, communicative instrument for expressing the requirements to the prospective software developer. Preparation of the SOW portion of the RFP is given special attention.
