The Department of Defense (DoD) relies on contractors to provide the U.S. military with a wide variety of goods and services such as research and development, facility construction, refurbishment, operational support, etc.
Our Federal Proposal Development Specialists understand why the various artifacts and reviews are necessary to achieve a winning proposal, rather than simply how to use the templates—they are more than simply “process mechanics.” As such, they can recommend improvements or enhancements to your established process, based on their knowledge of our process.
This is important since it speaks directly to process effectiveness and efficiency. Our proposal managers have the experience and leadership to work through and modify processes to achieve proposal objectives. Leveraging this capability is one reason why we have been so successful over our 20 years of providing acquisition management services. Our Proposal Professionals will help you create the winning proposal.
We can support a large range of efforts requiring weapon system engineering and technical expertise. Our engineers have uniquely impressive credentials in niche specialties, such as airworthiness, unmanned air systems (UAS), avionics, space systems, electronic warfare (EW), software engineering, and more.
Our proposal management and support approach centers on a disciplined, collaborative process tailored to produce well-written, well-supported volumes. Our proposal managers, volume leads, and writers have been on government source selection teams and understand the unique workings of the source selection process. Using this expertise, we help you craft winning strategies and develop proposal documents that set your team apart from the competition.
Our subject matter experts and proposal writers will work with your team to design a compliant proposal structure. We carefully review all the requirements in the solicitation and the government’s needs. We then assess your capabilities to ensure we map proposal responses to emphasize your company’s strengths and ability to meet the requirements. Our proposal writers integrate with your proposal team to provide clear, compliant, persuasive, strength-based proposal writing for a proposal section or an entire volume.
Our proposal managers are also subject matter experts…leading your proposal team through strategy, development, and delivery of a competitive, compliant proposal. Our proposal managers apply our proven proposal processes and milestones—but can flex to manage within your established business development procedures. As subject matter experts, we take input and data provided by your technical experts, coupled with our domain knowledge and extensive proposal experience, to produce readable, directed text with solid, identifiable themes and clear, strong discriminators.
