Fedmarket will offer two options to assist you in completing your Polaris offering:

Model Proposal ONLY
The Model Proposal Template will consist of all volumes and files formatted according to the solicitation, file formatting requirements, and proposal submittal instructions. The files contain file completions instructions and model text whenever possible. Instructions are written by deciphering the government's overly complicated criteria for required corporate experience evidence and required contractor certifications for administrative and financial systems.

Model Proposal w/Consulting
The option includes the Model Proposal Template with unlimited hours of consulting service with a senior proposal writer. In addition to consulting, this option includes proposal review, formatting, and compiling your proposal. When you work with our consultants and deliver all requested materials, the result of this engagement is a final Proposal ready for submittal to the government.
