Service I: Proposal Function Creation and Process Development

Setting up your proposal department can be challenging and costly.

We provide end-to-end support to help you develop your process, document key roles and responsibilities, and provide a roadmap to cost-effectively establish a proposal function.

Service II: Proposal Process Assessment and Improvement

It can be challenging to measure the performance of your proposal team, identify skill gaps, and evaluate the effectiveness of your current proposal process.

To help you improve response quality, we can benchmark your current proposal function, identify key areas of improvement, and develop an actionable plan to ensure best practice adoption across your team.

Service III: Turnkey Proposal Team Support

Organizations that employ highly skilled and competent proposal development professionals win significantly more business than those who do not.

We go beyond the “one-off” staffing mindset to help you deliver a winning proposal with a full-service team of proposal experts, appropriately sized to fit your needs.

Our Turnkey Proposal Team includes:

  • Proposal Manager: Our proposal managers have extensive experience in implementing successful proposal processes and best practices for both large and small government proposal efforts.
  • Proposal Writers: 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 writing and editing of reports, manuals, plans, contract deliverables, and internal communications.
  • Full Service Graphics and Production Support: We create compliant and compelling proposal graphics and execute the printing, binding, assembly, and packaging of your entire proposal. We offer a full-service production room and are able to perform large-scale printing and binding, custom tabs, final QC/book check, electronic media creation, and proposal packaging.
