Proposal Support and Rescue Training
Is high turnover hurting your proposal team? KSI can help!
TURNOVER + BURNOUT = LOWER WIN RATES
ENTER THE RESCUE SQUAD
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.
HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM STAFFING?
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.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?
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
With our onboarding support, you’ll be able to hire and ramp up more team members faster.
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.
How It Works
Step 1: KSI Provides Proposal Relief

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
The KSI Proposal Lead took ownership of the deliverables and RFQ Requirements. She effectively ran the entire proposal development, with oversight and comments from me – which is exactly the kind of support I needed.

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.”
