Proposal Writing Costs

The costs associated with writing a federal proposal are increasing as the federal government adds more red tape to the procurement process. For example, compliance rules are now more rigorous as a result of the publication of new Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) clauses. New rules mean new requirements must be met.  In addition, government auditors are now reviewing contracting officer's files to ensure that the rules are followed which results in a demand by the contracting officer for additional support and data. The result is that additional dollars are required to ensure that a proposal is 100% compliant. 

Our clients report to us that newcomers to the federal market underestimate proposal development costs by a factor of 2 - 1 or more. In response to demand from our clients, our proposal writers have designed individual proposal templates in an effort to help reduce your proposal development costs. The documents were developed using content from proposals that have won large contracts in the past. These templates address specific sections of federal proposals and will save you time, money, and will greatly improve the quality of your next federal proposal. See below for more information.
