When should you engage a proposal writer?
If your organization is one of the many that competes for government contract work, you know that this area of business is extremely competitive. In order to win a contract you must first submit a Request for Proposal (RFP) and a proposal writer can give you an advantage by helping you show off your greatest strengths.
Regardless of whether you are a small, mid-sized or large business your team may not include a proposal writing specialist. Crafting a complete and well-researched proposal is not only complicated, but also requires expertise about the RFP process and government contracting as a whole.
At RBW Strategy, we have that expertise and provide guidance during the proposal writing process in order to make your RFP more successful. We provide a strategic and thoughtful way of responding to opportunities by highlighting your company’s best assets, and being responsive to the information requested.
Assess Organizational Needs
Prior to proposal submission, RBW Strategy will help you determine how prepared your organizational is to respond to an RFP.
Prior to any proposal writing, we’ll work with you to ensure the opportunity is in alignment with your organization’s capabilities. In some instances, it might be prudent to review the organization’s ability to respond to each component of the RFP, and whether this opportunity is the right fit.
Develop “Win” Themes
A key component in proposal writing is to identify your company’s best assets and selling points.
These themes showcase your company’s strengths and are integrated into the RFP response in order to increase the likelihood of an award.
No proposal is complete unless it addresses every element in the RFP.
RBW Strategy’s proposal writing services use a proven strategy, which includes a compliance matrix, to ensure strict RFP compliance. With our support your proposal will be effective and complete.
One of the most difficult challenges to the RFP process is determining the most relevant information to include.
Our proposal writing services include participating in the feedback, review and editing cycle. RBW Strategy can conduct reviews or revisions in order to ensure your proposal meets the high-quality standards for submission.
