Bidder conferences (sometimes also called contractor conferences, vendor conferences, and pre-bid conferences) are meetings with all prospective sellers and buyers prior to submittal of a bid or proposal. They are used to ensure that all prospective sellers have a clear and common understanding of the procurement (both technical and contractual requirements), and that no bidders receive preferential treatment. Responses to questions can be incorporated into the procurement documents as amendments. To be fair buyers must take great care to ensure that all prospective sellers hear every question and answer from any individual seller.
