CMG's Go / No Go Bid Evaluation Checklist

Initial Review

Use this checklist to determine if you will be moving forward with an opportunity. Complete for each opportunity whether you are moving forward or not (this helps us modify search criteria more suitable for your business).
Upon confirmation of your intent to proceed, our team will typically have a proposal template prepared for you within a few business days, although more complex bids may require additional time. The staged proposal template will include follow-on instructions and guidance for completing your response. After receiving the template, you will be responsible for filling it out according to the RFP instructions, we provide our commentary and recommendations. Following this, our team will conduct a basic review of your submission.
