Additional insight into our approach process.
Stakeholder planning meeting
Stakeholder planning and onboarding meeting are typically scheduled once a funding opportunity is identified with the expressed purpose to review timelines, data and information needs, documentation needs, etc. Please Note: We strongly recommend that project work start between 60 to 30 days before a proposal or report deadline.
Draft and Feedback
We believe that the proposal development process is an iterative process. Meaning our clients should see drafts and provide feedback on all documents required for each proposal. To this end, we encourage regular project meetings.
We are happy to provide uploading and submitting services on behalf of our clients. We typically upload all documents to the proposal platform on behalf of our clients. They then have the option to submit the proposal or have us submit on their behalf.
Proposal Feedback & Follow-Up
As a best practice, we expect (regardless of the outcome) to received copies of all reviewers scoring and comments. We believe this helps improve our process as a consulting firm. We review the reviewer’s feedback with the client and make appropriate action plans for improvement.
While we can not guarantee that every opportunity we identify will fund a client, or that every proposal we write will be funded, or that your evaluation report will indicate that your program’s goals & objectives will be achieved, we CAN guarantee a tailored approach that is grounded in latest in best-practices, appropriate methodology, and a professional experience.
