Overview

I specialize in managing projects from proposal through implementation. I have a history of helping businesses write comprehensive and accurate responses to RFPs, establishing them as top-tier candidates for highly competitive bids.

I have managed and been a member of management teams on several large projects, helping to establish risk, issue, communications and documentation management practices. I believe in planning, but I also believe that with the right effort, the plans can be both brief and powerful.

Service Description

I offer thorough acquisition service based on years of experience working on all sides of the table. I have written RFPs, RFIs, proposals, source selection procedural documents and reports. I offer the attention to detail required when putting together an RFP or responding to one and have experience as both author and reviewer.

I believe that proposals should help your company stand out through high quality writing, presentation and structure. My goal is to know your business and your team so I can contribute like one of your own.

Identifying requirements, conducting research and recognizing opportunities should be the underpinning of your proposal or RFP efforts. I can bring that to your team and help deliver the results you need. Well written RFPs and proposals allow for greater opportunity for all parties and that's what I aim to provide.

My background includes working on and managing teams of professionals tasked with developing RFPs from scratch, conducting requirements gathering exercises, creating acquisition strategies and publishing super high quality products. I have worked for several large consulting companies and have learned how to manage the RFP and proposal development process with large teams and small, english speaking and non-english speaking staff, under tight deadlines and with ambiguous goals.

If you and your team need to find the path towards hard-hitting, well regarded acquisition documents, please send me a note today.
