We help with navigating the complexities of procurement – knowing when an agency posts a bid, where it posts, and the underlying story of why it is posting. This is both an art and a science. Whether you need coaching on capture, intel on a specific bid, or to outsource the entire capture process to TLG on an as-needed basis, we can point you in the right direction on how to more efficiently, cost-effectively, and intelligently approach the phases of your journey to a win.
The Thought Leadership Group has vast experience within the civilian federal marketplace. Pertaining to proposals, we serve as an objective voice that companies sometimes need. We can assist with any aspect of the proposal process and work products – and will caution you against responding to posts that are untenable or a waste of your Bid & Proposal time and money. We know that the frequency, gravity, and quality of your proposals reflects on your public image and future. Our goal is to ensure 100% compliancy, and to deliver a bid that fully resonates to the complex “asks” of the Federal Government.
STRATEGY & CONSULTING
Randomly responding to bids simply because they were posted, “because they seem cool,” or they appear to be lucrative is actually not how to approach the world of BD. TLG helps you run selective marathons – and skip the sprints. Let TLG analyze your strengths and weaknesses (gate-reviews and black hat sessions), examine your branding and approaches, and possibly introduce you to agencies and teaming partners you would otherwise have no ties to.
Sometimes even the best companies get lost in the woods. Turnover, rapid growth, new legislation, and other circumstances can throw off your game. By analyzing your marketplace presence, anonymously interviewing employees, and objectively scrutinizing your business processes, files, and other factors, we will create a customized compass to get you pointing in the right direction again. We “consult the consultants” by providing tailored, easy-to-read written recommendations on operational improvements to re-establish your branding, business development management, processes, and win strategies.
MARKET RESEARCH & INTELLIGENCE
How well do you know your current and future customers? How well do you know their future mission objectives, strategies, growth, budgets, philosophies, technologies, and personnel? TLG uses a combination of modern technology and old-fashioned streetwise, networked insight to give you the heads up you need to plan intelligently and accordingly.
COST & PRICING
TLG can provide you with realistic and competitive pricing advice. TLG works with accountants and pricing specialists who balance your immediate short-term goals with your long-term company health. We are highly experienced in all contract types including Time and Materials (T&M), Firm Fixed Price (FFP), Labor Hour Contracts (LHCs), single source awards, Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) and Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPA) awards. We can help you craft a formula that can meet the Government’s needs while helping your bottom line.
