The Most Comprehensive Resource Available on Developing, Writing, and Executing Statements of Work

Specifically for the Public Sector

When written well, a statement of work (SOW) attracts high-quality, competitive bids. When written poorly, it leads to disputes and protests—and results in bids that do not meet the needs of the government. Federal Statements of Work: A Practical Guide is an indispensable reference tool for anyone in the public sector charged with developing, writing, and executing an SOW to procure goods and services.

Introducing readers to the basic sections and types of an SOW, how they are written, when they should be applied, and how they are used, this book puts the SOW in perspective as a fundamental part of federal contracting. With sample SOWs from various federal agencies and projects as well as an exhaustive list of supplemental resources, Federal Statements of Work provides the tools you need to write a clear, concise, and quality statement of work.

By employing the guidelines and techniques defined in this book, you can avoid the problems that often lead to project failure.

  • Ensure that projects meet the specified scope and quality
  • Reduce the possibility of change orders and increased costs
  • Control risk by clearly defining roles and responsibilities
