What is it

Fedmarket's "Recipe for Writing a Compliant Federal Proposal" was developed by Richard White and Kristin Bales. Both are experts in federal government contracting and have years of experience in responding to government RFPs. Together they have written dozens of proposals in all areas of government contracting. Now they have collaborated and put into words the methods for developing a successful proposal from start to finish.

    Winning Proposals Provide Evaluators with What They Want in a Clear, Concise, and Tightly Organized Proposal

    Federal proposal evaluators want precisely what they asked for in the RFP. Evaluators tell you what they want in Section L Proposal Instructions and Section M Evaluation Criteria. They want your proposal organized like L & M so they can evaluate your response easily and quickly.

    >> Recipe instructions are presented in two parts.

    Part I Building a Draft Proposal Using an Example RFP 

    Part 1 presents step-by-step instructions on how to prepare a draft proposal using an example RFP.  We explain how to develop a draft proposal using information in the three critical requirements sections of an RFP (Sections L Proposal Instructions, Section M Evaluation Criteria and the Statement of Work).

    Inexperienced proposal mangers and writers can read Part 1 until they understand the basics of building a proposal from an RFP. Part 1 can be used as both a reference document during proposal writing projects or as a training tool for new proposal writers.

    Part 2 Building a Draft Proposal Using an Actual Example RFP 

    Part 2 presents step-by-step instructions on how to build a draft proposal in response to an actual bidding opportunity. In Part 2 you will produce a compliant draft proposal from your own RFP.  At the end of Part 2, you will have a complete proposal outline that you can strengthen with subject matter and technical content, edit, and submit to the government.

    Win one proposal using the Recipe and the product will pay for itself many times over.
