What is Fast Track in 2 Days?

Fast Track in 2 days is an accelerated version of our popular six-week federal acquisition training program. Instead of completing the self-paced, web-based training program, this intensive bootcamp-style clinic provides an opportunity for up to 10 companies in your city to gain valuable insights and strategies from Fast Track creator and Federal Acquisitions Expert Linda Chatmon.

Why Enroll in Fast Track in 2 Days?

Fast Track in 2 Days will walk you step-by-step through the federal bidding process. Normally, our traditional web-based Fast Track training is $5000 to enroll. The onsite bootcamps are $999 per company or team - that’s more than 75% OFF the regular price for this intensive training AND it includes weekly coaching for 30 days after bootcamp.

We encourage Fast Track companies to complete the training program with their key personnel, but it's also a good opportunity to reserve a spot on your 3-person team to include key personnel from one or more of your teaming partners. That way, you get the benefit of working with your teaming partner as you would in a real project and the added advantage of being able to share the cost of training.

Fair Warning...

This is a true AGGRESSIVE bootcamp, and there will be assigned homework for each session that WILL NEED TO BE COMPLETED for the next day. These are working sessions for both days so bring your laptop.

The Proficiencies You Will Develop in the Fast Track Bootcamp

Your team will learn how to find and bid on the right government contracting opportunities in an immersive, real-world simulation designed to recreate the exact environment your team will encounter with government agencies.You will experience each step of the bid process from deciding which opportunity is the best one for your organization, to submitting your federal proposal, to having your proposal evaluated during a final debriefing.

  • LEARN TO IDENTIFY THE MOST PROFITABLE GOVERNMENT CONTRACTING OPPORTUNITIES -Not every opportunity is a good opportunity for you! Save your company hundreds of man-hours by learning how to create a rubric that will help you quickly figure out which government contracts you're best-suited to perform.
  • LEARN HOW TO WRITE PROPOSALS THAT GET YOU TO THE NEGOTIATION TABLE - Overcome the #1 challenge that keeps companies just like yours from submitting successful bids.
  • LEARN HOW TO PRICE for PROFIT - Price for profit so you don't lose your contract, or worse - your business.


Attendees will walk away with their own Proposal Library including:

  • Vetting Plan
  • Capture Plan
  • Identification of Opportunities
  • Cost Narrative
  • Baseline Proposal for future submissions

Who Should Attend

  • Currently in business, but not selling to the government (private or commercial)
  • Current government contractors who need to win more bids
  • Small businesses that would like to team with another small business to market to the government
