Sparks can provide services ranging from RFP research and analysis to document editing and final production.
Production and Delivery
When all edits are incorporated into the document and it's ready for producing, let Sparks take the stress out of delivery. Even if the client only wants E-delivery via email or copies on discs and no hard copies, that can be arranged.
Based on the proposal schedule and distance to the potential client, Sparks can even hand deliver the document, if needed. In most cases, the proposal is finished soon enough to send it via overnight express 2 days before the actual due date.
Writing and Editing
Sparks provides writing, editing, and reviews of proposals based on RFP specifications. More specifically, these services include:
Brainstorming for what differentiates your company from others bidding for the same work
Outlining the proposal to coincide with RFP
Developing a proposal schedule to ensure on-time delivery
Writing the Executive Summary and qualifications sections (project exp., resumes, etc.)
Scheduling and conducting reviews (Red Team, etc.) and incorporating the resulting changes
Developing graphics to show instead of tell
Consolidating all sections/chapters and files to ensure the Final proposal appears consistent
Editing Drafts and the Final documents
Producing presentations for those proposals that make the short list and require in-person presentation before reviewers can decide.
These services can also be provided for grant proposals sent to major foundations for funding programs at nonprofit agencies.
RFP Research and Analysis
If you're searching for a particular RFP, or tracking a business opportunity, Sparks can help you find it (on FedBizOpps, FedConnect, etc.), then provide you analysis of the RFP compared with your company's strengths. This comparison can be provided in a table or listed format for quicker data digesting of key factors scored by the decision makers.
This preview of probability helps score or quantify how likely it is your company or agency will be awarded the project or program funding. It's not absolute, but an objective evaluation of whether the proposal is worth pursuing. Nobody wants to waste time or money.
If you choose to pursue the opportunity, Sparks can help you develop a coherent and responsive proposal that will be compliant with requirements.
