Step 1 - We will prepare a proposal template from the solicitation requirements. The template outlines how an ideal offeror would respond in a proposal. Then, via a telephone conversation, we will discuss solicitation requirements using the template to help you determine if your business is ready to submit a proposal. And, if so, we work with you to prepare a win strategy.
Step 2 - Write your proposal
MWH & Associates will prepare a proposal to meet the expectations and requirements of the U.S. Federal Government that is outlined in the solicitation. We will write your proposal to be concise, comprehensive, and meet the prime importance outlined by the Government in the solicitation. In addition, your proposal will be organized in accordance with the solicitation requirements. We rely on your team to provide us (usually obtained via interviews) with information on your approach to perform the Government's scope of work. We use the information you provide to prepare a proposal with clarity, accuracy, relevance, and completeness in all respects outlined in the solicitation without the Government needing additional explanation or information. To assist the Government’s review, your proposal will be confined to essential matters sufficient to define your offer and provide an adequate basis for evaluation. The Government will review your proposal for content only, not syntax. The US Government discourages unnecessarily elaborate proposals.
-Contractor personnel must possess a SECRET or INTERIM SECRET

80% of the proposals the Government receives are not reviewed because they don't meet the minimum or mandatory solicitation requirements.
