Solicitation, Bids, and Proposals: Building a Winning Contract

Presented by Roy A. Nyquist, CPCM, Fellow, Federal Contract Manager, DOD Strategy Group

Building a contract, in both the public and private business sectors, which meets or exceeds the requirements of the buyer and seller is indeed a challenge, especially in a world of high expectations and demanding customers. This seminar provides a comprehensive roadmap or series of steps, which can be taken by both buyers and sellers to achieve mutual business success.

The focus of this seminar is on the art and science of building a winning contract by:

  1. Creating appropriate and professional solicitations (request for quotes, invitations for bids, request for proposals, etc.);
  2. Developing successful bids/proposals (including verbal presentations); and
  3. Conducting efficient, cost effective, and value-added source selection.

Every attendee will receive a copy of Solicitations, Bids, Proposals, and Source Selection—Building a Winning Contract.
