Proposal Consulting Services
Using a third-party proposal service can free your staff from the time consuming process of dissecting and developing compliant and persuasive content for what are often very complex government solicitations. Moreover, small businesses who may not have the capacity or desire to submit proposals on a regular basis find it difficult to sort out the response requirements and prepare an effective narrative.
When considering their options, most companies find that adding a full-time employee that knows how to write and manage proposals is a costly decision while engaging a professional proposal writer on a temporary basis gains them a higher quality resource that is both efficient and cost-effective. When owners of a business engage proposal writers, they are able to continue running operations and doing what they do best, while the proposal formats of business writers can be professionally adapted very cost-effectively to the benefit of the business owner.
Using a knowledgeable proposal consulting service can provide the confidence that you will not only submit a compliant response that meets all of the RFP requirements, but also that your proposal will be written in a persuasive manner that mitigates the risk of choosing you over your competition. You will benefit from their experience preparing effective technical and pricing responses that address all of the critical components required to rank high based on the reviewer's evaluation criteria.
Additionally, a proposal service that supports a company's efforts to obtain opportunities with government agencies, either federal, state, or local, can help to build a solid reputation for your unique skill sets that differentiates you from your competition and builds confidence with a solid record of past performance, which is critical when seeking government contracts.
Request for Proposal
The finalized RFP (Request for Proposal) released by a government agency is usually specific to the agency itself. Federal solicitations generally follow the government’s Federal Acquisition Regulations. State and local government RFPs can be modeled after the federal RFP formats, but, in most instances, they are unique to the needs of that agency. There are often various forms required with your response, but the use of proposal forms free online are not recommended unless provided by the agency itself.
When developing a proposal for
RFP services in response to a government request for proposal, it is always advisable to identify all of the proposal requirements and develop a proposal outline at the onset of your effort, taking into account any instructions provided in the solicitation itself. Just downloading a proposal template sample from the web may give you some general content suggestions, but without first understanding the specific requirements the agency has outlined, a proposal template will only lead to a waste of effort.
