    Overarching Business Objectives:

    ·Develop an audience (solicitation issuer) focus to write a more compelling proposal
    ·Implement the principles of plain language in the writing process
    ·Ensure 100% compliance with requirements
    ·Develop and apply an annotated outline to structure proposal
    Writing proposals is both a science and an art. Proposals are highly structured and must be 100% compliant (the science) but they are also an exercise in thinking like the issuer of the SOW, PWS, or SOO (the art). By carefully assessing the solicitation documents, identifying all the requirements, and mapping those requirements in a
    requirements compliance table (RCT), you can accomplish three critical objectives. First, you can ensure you are actually able to meet all the requirements before you start to expend valuable resources writing your proposal. Second, you can ensure you have identified 100% of the solicitation issuer’s requirements. Finally, you can identify areas of inconsistency, confusion, and/or inaccuracies and formulate quality questions. The other major consideration, which flows from the RCT, is creating a logical structure for your proposal to ensure all requirements are addressed, and that they are only addressed once, in your proposal.
    The topics we will cover include:
    ·The process of identifying the requirements
    ·Creating and using an RCT
    ·Developing a logical outline aligned with the requirements in the RCT
    ·Annotating the outline so it can be used as a proposal management tool and management sign-off tool
