In a tight economy, both large and small businesses are finding creative ways to make the most of proposal resources. Few companies have the luxury of a full-time proposal team at-the-ready. You may have the technical experts to address the client solution, and have an in-house coordinator to manage the process and production. What is frequently missing, however, is a knowledgeable proposal expert to ensure effective messaging and RFP compliance.
The solution? Shred-to-Red© Proposal Services. These services typically include:
- A thorough review of all Solicitation requirements
- Development of a Shred Package that identifies RFP compliance and that guides the proposal process and content development—including templates for writers
- Conducting a Proposal Kick-Off Meeting so that the proposal team proceeds with a clear outline and understanding of what is needed—including an exercise to ensure that discriminators and themes are identified
- Conducting or participating in a Red Team proposal review to identify weaknesses.
By adding this service to the beginning and end of the process, you will keep in-house staff focused on what they do best, while making sure that the proposal is highly competitive. The service ensures a fresh review of requirements and an unbiased critique of content by a seasoned evaluator who has not been vested in the writing process.
Shred to Red© is an economical way to augment your team without a hefty consultant tab. The cost of a Shred to Red Service is generally $3,000. If needed, writing, editing, layout, orals coaching, and other support can be provided separately.
