Charting Your Path: A Roadmap for Proposals that Make an Impact

December 9, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Responding effectively to an RFP is an obstacle that prevents many small, women, and minority-owned businesses from competing for governmental contracts.

More so than ever, proposals have become highly customized, visual documents that need to not only provide answers to a series of questions about a specific project, but also convey a firm’s brand, expertise, and communication style. Great proposals involve several different elements including planning, writing, editing, and graphic design. A/E/C firms cannot simply aim darts at the dartboard and hope for the best when it comes to winning work. And no matter the size or setup of your firm, having a game plan for creating a successful proposal is necessary.

This workshop will cover the key considerations to building a roadmap towards a powerful proposal following the requirements of documents issued by the Commonwealth of Virginia including:

● Letter of Interest & Statement of Qualifications, HECO-16

● Request for Proposals

The information you take away will empower you to take the necessary steps to increase your chances of getting a positive outcome on your next Request for Proposals submission.
