Seeing a posting for a “Proposal writer” job today made me realize I haven’t talked about one of my ongoing client projects. My client sells their two software products to city, county, and state governments, and came to me three years ago asking if I could provide them with some help in their RFP process.
I currently do the following:
- Read daily RFP emails from state agencies and RFP aggregators.
- Monitor state databases of open RFPs for states that don’t send email updates.
- Identify opportunities to pursue.
- Review documents associated with the RFPs/RFIs, and summarize any issues or concerns.
I’ve also started a database of potential partnership opportunities related to the RFPs and will be helping the company to write “getting to know you” emails that they will send to a select group of potential partners.
If you’re looking for a similar service, or need help writing RFP responses, I’d love to chat with you.
