Purpose

Having your proposal be selected is more than just making a technical response to the client’s requirements. A proposal is a project on a very short and demanding time frame with its own set of unique requirements and rules. It must be planned and kickoff very quickly. Any request for proposal has selection criteria and rules for scoring each proposal, whether stated or implied. There are techniques for ensuring that the proposal submitted complies with the all the criteria (not just the technical), doesn’t stumble over non-technical issues and scores the highest in all areas, giving it the highest probability of being selected. Of course, having been selected, there must also be a clear understanding of scope and expectations between the proposal team and the project sponsor.

Abyss Program Management will assist the client in developing a proposal which is responsive to the sponsor’s requirements; provides a pragmatic solution which is implementable, measurable and supportable; has clear deliverables; has well quantified risks and opportunities; and has a more robust proposal win strategy.
