Unsolicited Proposals

An unsolicited proposal is a possible means through which a unique or innovative idea, concept, method, or approach that has been originated or developed outside of ICE, and could benefit ICE in accomplishing its mission, is brought to the agency’s attention by a potential contractor. 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/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

Unsolicited proposals are offered with the intent that ICE will enter into a contract with the offeror, contingent on the availability of funds, and the absence of other possible vendors, for activities supporting the ICE missions. It is the policy of ICE to encourage the submission of unsolicited proposals meeting the criteria noted above. Firms wishing to submit a proposal should submit a proposal to Tamika Gray at the above address.
