Event description


Learn how to write a winning technical proposal from a contracting officer’s perspective!

A technical proposal is often used by the government as a determining factor in who is awarded a contract. It requires the contractor to address various questions about why they should be awarded the contract and the written response is evaluated along with the price.

Technical proposals can be difficult to navigate, understand and prepare for, due to broad and unstructured requirements. This two-part webinar will provide tips for success and examples of winning technical proposals.

In these webinars, we will tear apart pieces of a real proposal and evaluate – sharing ways to make your proposals stronger and thoughtfully written.
