Are your proposal reviews derailing the win? APMP SPAC 2018 Presentation | Lisa Pafe

Date/time: March 22, 2018 at 2:40 pm Location: Cobb Energy Performance Arts Center (CEPAC), Atlanta Proposal best practices dictate that we hold color team reviews — Blue, Pink, Red, and Gold — practically the entire rainbow. Yet, often our proposal reviews prevent us from successfully reaching the finish line for three primary reasons. First, typical review teams are bloated with unprepared, un-briefed, unqualified, and/or uninterested reviewers. Second, our proposal reviews place incorrect focus on the likes and dislikes of the reviewers rather than on how customer proposal evaluators will score and rank proposals. Third, we rarely give reviewers enough time to perform their assignments effectively. This presentation will present and solve these problems, with ample audience polling and discussion.

Traditional wisdom tells us that, therefore, the incumbent should win unless they are performing poorly. Yet, despite being seemingly best informed, in recent years incumbents have had approximately the same win rate on rebids as non-incumbents. This two-part webinar will examine how to win from two perspectives. In Part 1, we will focus on proven capture and proposal strategies that challengers can use to defeat incumbent contractors.
