Term: Contracting Officer

The client employee designated in the RFP to manage the procurement. Often the only client employee with whom bidders are authorized to communicate during the RFP process.  Failure to abide by this restriction can render a bid non-compliant.

Sometimes becomes the Contract Authority after contract award, but the two roles are distinct.
