Proposals

Proposals must dazzle despite a short timeline.  A proposal with compelling language and visuals that detail your capabilities, highlight your team’s experience, and make a case for how you will meet the government’s requirements. A proposal fully and concisely addresses every evaluation criteria and fits into complicated length, formatting, and structural guidelines.

Creating a winning proposal for federal government work is a complicated process that requires a specialized set of skills and experience.  Does your team have the skills they need, or do they wince when someone mentions a red team? Do you have a library of useful capabilities, qualifications, cases, and resumes, or do you scramble at the last second to pull everything together?

Here’s how Hollywood & Associates can help:
