Proposal Process Innovation℠ Update for January 2017
by Bredt Martin BSME MBA JD, Manager and General Counsel, Black Dog Technology LLC.
For more than five years, MS Access-based Proposal Navigator® has supported proposal development needs in TS/SCI closed areas sponsored by multiple IC agencies. From simple “shredding” of the RFP through proposal delivery, Proposal Navigator®’s streamlining capabilities significantly and consistently increase the number of productive workdays by your team between RFP release and due date, giving them a marked advantage versus competitors.
For example, Proposal Navigator® reduces by days the timeline between RFP release and proposal kickoff. You can expect completing RFP shred, outline, and L and M cross referencing within about 24 hours versus up to a week using typical manual methods.
Proposal Navigator® also reduces by days to a week the timeline between proposal kickoff and Pink Team. At kickoff, you provide fully annotated Writers’ Guides (containing all L and M instructions organized by master outline) in your preferred Word template so even inexperienced writers can begin productive work immediately.
Black Dog Technology LLC's innovative processes and Proposal Navigator® toolsuite efficiencies add significant productive work days to your constrained proposal development timelines.
Contact us for your capture/proposal support needs or to arrange your Proposal Navigator® system capability demonstration. 2017 pricing is $25,000 annual subscription (unlimited use) per proposal center site (includes both open and closed areas).
