Writing RFPs and proposals is not difficult—if you know how. In this seminar, you will learn how to write top-quality RFPs for government and also how to respond to the RFPs with a strategic proposal that wins the contract. You will learn the differences between an RFP and a proposal; how you can deconstruct RFP requirements to craft a proposal that wins the contract; criteria used in evaluating the strength of a proposal (understanding your audience's needs); strategies you can use to write clear and concise RFP requirements; and efficient documentation management and review process techniques.
