Proposal Development and Technical Assistance

Proposal Planning

CMG has an in-house technical writing team that reviews, develops, and constructs local, state, and federal proposals. Each proposal is customized to meet specific requirements from the respective agency or buyer.

CMG leverages a web-based proposal production system to manage and track the critical items and phases of the proposal production process such as deadlines, scope and requirements analysis, pre-bid meetings, proposal checklists, technical writing, initial quality assurance review, final red team evaluation, and proposal final production and delivery.
