Solicitation documents are complex, lengthy and sometimes include confusing language particularly for organizations not familiar with the solicitation process and short deadlines. Essential to developing a successful proposal is a critical solicitation analysis and focused strategy. Our team can analyze and provide a strategy for RFPs, RFAs, APS’, associate award and task order solicitations.
