What Type of Capture Support Do You Need?

Capture Strategy and Capture Planning

In order to win any federal contract, companies must understand the process and strategy to position themselves for a specific program. This involves understanding all aspects of the contract including decision makers, incumbents, competitors, teams, key personnel, winning solutions, win strategies, and the Price to Win. Red Team helps to initially analyze these details through a capture analysis to identify gaps, weaknesses, and what to prioritize from a capture perspective. From there, Red Team will map out the specific strategies to win the contract and will help plan each particular step of the capture process.

Win Strategy and Win Theming

Red Team can help generate or refine win strategies that will garner strengths and differentiators in your overall approach. We will conduct strategy sessions to identify strengths, discriminators, and proof points against the evaluation criteria. Our capture experts will help you develop win themes, or if you already have established win themes, help you review these win themes to improve the likelihood of evaluating more favorably during the government’s evaluation and source selection process.

Competitive Analysis and Black Hat

We have won significant single-award programs for our clients when they have engaged Red Team for competitive analysis work.

Teaming Strategy

Red Team has helped our clients build winning teams. Our approach is centered on evaluating teaming partners in relation to how a client can 1) maximize its score in the evaluation process and 2) bring the most value to the contract and client post-award. Because of our extensive list of clients and partners, we can often identify both teaming opportunities and other teaming partners that our current clients are not aware of.

Bid/No-bid Decisions

Pursuit decisions are expensive and challenging. Whether you are pursuing an opportunity that is over a year away, or the RFP was just released, we will qualify the opportunity and determine the cost to win in relation to the opportunity’s anticipated value to your company. Based on your timeline, we will help you determine if the bid is worth pursuing.

Red Team can help you identify your corporate growth objectives over the next 3 to 5 years.
