Proposal Development Support


Whether you need a full proposal team at your location immediately or a single resource to help guide your team through a proposal, we can help–at your location or virtually. We have carefully screened, prequalified, and certified our proposal experts to provide you with the best talent available.

Clients benefit from a cadre of certified proposal specialists who are experienced in a variety of markets, including: Federal Government, Business-to-Business, State & Local Government, Non-Profit, Education, R &D and International.

Our proposal consultants support non-traditional proposal projects, including R & D proposals, GSA FEDSIM proposals, and OTAs (other transactional authority) proposals.

Each proposal is carefully managed by our engagement quality management (EQM) team who understand the challenges of day-to-day proposal development activity. These are practitioners who know how to win!
