Our team places special emphasis on providing advice early enough in the procurement process to help improve a company’s competitive edge. We work closely with you to achieve a better understanding of the complexities, particular nuances, unwritten sensitivities, or the preferences of decision-makers for a specific state or local jurisdiction. This understanding of the process, when used early enough, can prove highly useful, such as instances when we convince procurement agencies that competitive procurement is not legally required because products or services involved are sole sources, or when an existing contract can be renewed or extended.
Where competitive procurement is required, we help clients anticipate and avoid problems in their responses to a solicitation. Before the issuance of a competitive solicitation, we assist clients by reviewing and commenting on draft specifications published by an agency, working with an agency to revise draft specifications where bidders are provided such an opportunity, attending agency meetings relating to the upcoming procurement and working with the client to develop a general strategy for responding to an anticipated solicitation. We provide advice on myriad contract vehicles including firm-fixed-price contracts, cost-reimbursement contracts, multiple award schedules, indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contracts, design, construction, and design, build, operate and maintain agreements, construction management at risk, cooperative purchasing arrangements and revenue-generating contracts. Our proposal writers have experience with every procurement methodology, including sole-source, invitations for bids (IFB; low bid), requests for proposals, the best value, competitive sealed bids, and proposals and negotiated procurement.
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 consultants help you create a winning proposal that is compliant and compelling, using our proven proposal-winning tools and processes. Our writers can prepare any type of section for a proposal or grant, including executive summary, technical, management, transition, past performance, resumes, quality assurance, risk management, staffing, and price narrative. We also provide technical writers who support the writing and editing of reports, manuals, plans, contract deliverables, and internal communications. Our team members can support your proposal through a single opportunity, or long-term support as required. 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.
