Proposal Advisory Services

We can guide your team in ensuring your proposal resonates with the customer to provide you the best opportunity to capture business. We advise on strategies for pricing and other proposal elements crucial to success in the challenging procurement environment. Our years of experience inside the federal government overseeing the source selection process and ultimate source selection decisions make us a critical partner in the capture phase.

Contract Administration Support 

Developing and maintaining your relationship with your customers is vital to success. We can advise you on how to ensure your relationship is productive so that customer satisfaction is maximized. As the operating environment changes, we can assist you in working with your customer to administer and optimize the contract during its life cycle.

Contract Performance + Compliance Support 

Practices and processes in the federal sector differ from those in the commercial sector and it is easy to unintentionally run afoul of federal requirements. As a global leader in compliance consulting, we can evaluate your contract compliance efforts, note any gaps, and recommend best practices.

In addition, we can assist you in ensuring that your performance under the contract is meeting your customer’s expectations. Successful contract performance greatly increases your chances for additional work, as past performance evaluation plays heavily in source selection decisions.
