The purpose of the RVGSS one-on-one communication meetings is to allow industry the opportunity to better understand the current requirements and to allow industry an opportunity to provide input on any future Request for Proposals.

The meetings are intended to be question and answer sessions in which neither side will be making a formal presentation.
