Unsolicited proposals can help ICE accomplish its mission. The proposal must be prepared independent of government advice or supervision.

Before beginning the unsolicited proposal process, a vendor should carefully and objectively assess its product or service to ensure that it is not commercially available and it meets the specific criteria of FAR Part 15.6 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR). This regulation can be accessed at http://www.acquisition.gov/far/.

Unsolicited proposals are contingent on the availability of funds and the absence of other possible vendors. ICE encourages the submission of unsolicited proposals meeting the criteria noted above.

Unsolicited proposals should be directed to:
