In the A/E/C industry, proposal writing is a way of life. Some firms excel at writing proposals while others just "get by." When you're competing based solely upon qualifications, the quality of proposal and how you set your firm apart from the competition can mean the difference between first and second place. This webinar will give you tips on navigating the Professional Services proposal lifecycle from finding RFPs to post-award debrief.

You'll get an "external" perspective from a successful Business Development Manager at a medium-sized professional services firm. You'll also get "insider" knowledge from CDOT Engineering Contracts about how they evaluate proposals and how to put your best foot forward in a highly competitive environment.

What You'll Learn:

  • Finding RFP's and identifying key information
  • Making go/no go decisions
  • Crafting a proposal response
  • Understanding what makes a proposal compelling and dynamic
  • Submitting your proposal
  • What CDOT reviewers are looking for and how they evaluate and score proposals
  • Common mistakes that take proposals out of the running
  • Best practices of winning proposers

  • Anna Bosted, Business Development, ERO Resources
  • Pehle Colletta, CDOT Professional Services Contracts Manager
