We can help you take advantage of the GWACs and IDIQs. you’ve already won and provide the resources you need to position your company effectively and respond to multiple, concurrent task order proposals.
Federal Proposal Services complies with Shipley’s color-coded review process to provide proposal writing review services to improve the quality of our clients’ competitive response. Depending on the size (number of pages) and the time available from proposal kickoff to proposal submission, proposal teams will use one or more reviews before submission, including Pink Team, Red Team, Gold Team, and White Glove.
Every proposal benefits from outside proposal reviews. Our senior professionals can participate in color reviews, conduct independent reviews against our 7 Quality Measures, and conduct mock government source selection evaluation board (SSEB) reviews. No matter which review you select, you can count on thorough, frank assessments, and actionable out-briefs.
We’ve developed 7 criteria to assess a proposal’s quality:
- Compliant structure: the proposal is compliant with the instructions, evaluation criteria, and PWS.
- Responsive content: each proposal section fully addresses what the RFP requires.
- Customer-focused: the emphasis is on the customer, not the bidder.
- Compelling and feature-rich: proposal includes features and benefits with substantiating proofs that are apparent as strengths.
- Easy to evaluate: evaluators can easily score the proposal because it includes cross-references and maps back to the evaluation criteria.
- Visual communications: the proposal is attractive and uses graphics, icons, and tables to highlight features and benefits.
- Well-written: proposal uses active voice, maintains consistently tense conventions, and avoids vague or empty words as well as unsubstantiated “bragging”.
For a live proposal, our experts will review the RFP and score your proposal against our 7 Quality Measures. We understand the last thing you need is a failing grade without knowing how to make it better. Our experts annotate specific recommendations for improving your proposal’s probability of a win. At the end of the review, you’ll have an annotated copy of your proposal with a debriefing document that gives you a specific roadmap for improving the proposal’s quality.
