Federal Contracts: Proposal Writing

December 10, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

This course will help you gain an understanding of why proposals do or do not win, and show you how to make an educated decision to bid or not to bid, analyze the RFP, and develop a proposal schedule to deliver the proposal on time. This workshop also provides an overview of the proposal development process and key tasks that a government proposal manager needs to accomplish.
