Meeting Tight Staffing Deadlines for Proposal Positions

Mar 21, 2024

The Client

Our Client in Washington, DC needed assistance in filling 37 critical proposal positions within a week. This important project entailed carefully filling various roles to guarantee a thorough bid for success. We understood the importance of competitive bidding and how that could transfer into a winning proposal; we carefully tailored our strategy and provided prices that put the client in a competitive position.

The Challenges / Opportunities

  • Tight Deadline: We only had a week to deliver on these positions involving a wide set of domains.
  • Number of Positions: There were 37 positions to fill with highly specific requirements.
  • Niche Skill Set: There was a vast plethora of skills and certifications involved e.g .Net, Java, React, Angular, Cloud, Azure, AWS, Quality Assurance, Project management, Agile, Blockchain development, Security+, CISSP, Cyber, PMP, Agile certifications, AWS certified solution architect, Microsoft certifications and much more.
  • RTR, Reference: These positions required the Right to Represent (RTR) and references. Candidates were reluctant to submit RTR and references due to confidentiality concerns.
