Thompson Information Services

Whether you’re a seasoned contractor or just entering the federal marketplace, winning new business means mastering today’s new procurement processes and priorities.

In one comprehensive source, Thompson’s Winning Proposals and Pricing/Cost Strategies: A Guide for the Federal Contractor maps out essential new tactics. You’ll learn how to use a clear methodology to make sure you meet deadlines, comply with tough new rules and procedures, and include everything for proposals and pricing to stand up to today’s intense procurement scrutiny—and competition.

This game-changing Guide, shipping February 15, 2016, will help you to:

  • Spot just-emerging procurement opportunities
  • Avoid proposal practices that now trigger rejections
  • Develop a competitive—but realistic—pricing strategy
  • Address technical content and requirements
  • Prepare your “face-to-face” strategy
  • Deal with would-be competitors
  • Turn losing proposals into new wins

The Guide won’t just help you win awards, it helps you keep them, too. GAO and COFC decisions show that companies with established and detailed proposal methodologies were more likely to defend and keep their awards.
