KSI’s Proposal Support and Rescue Training helps proposal teams that are facing the pain of turnover and the time-consuming process of training new employees. Our Rescue Squad provides experienced and trained proposal professionals to address the missing roles on your team, so your company doesn’t miss a beat pursuing bids.


While we are engaged with your team, we also learn your proposal processes so that we can help you train and ramp up new staff.


Get Experienced Proposal Professionals Fast

Bid on opportunities in your pipeline when you’re shorthanded. We cover your gaps while you look for qualified permanent staff.

Reduce Your Team's Workload

Your proposal staff won’t be burdened by helping train new employees while continuing to work on multiple proposals. We help your team balance the workload.

Onboard New Employees Quickly

Your new employees can begin supporting proposals faster and sharing the current workload.

Hire More Team Members

Improved Consistency = Higher Win Rate

Consistent proposal operations allow teams to produce a steady output of high-quality proposals.

Rinse and Repeat for Continued Success

Because KSI learns your process, we can provide proposal consultants until you’ve hired full-time employees. We can also help train your new proposal staff beyond the initial engagement as a part of continued professional development.

The training instructor did a great job. She always made sure we had time for questions and allowed us to pick topics to spend more time on.  She made the topics understandable to someone who had only a little experience.”
