Capture Management Process

VA

Three session series in which attendees may choose one or all sessions to attend depending on level of interest. Registrations after 3/31/2021 are accepted via email at ptac@gmu.edu until the date of the last session. We hope you will join us!

Capture Management Process webinar series will arm you with real knowledge and tools you will apply immediately to capturing government contracts and dramatically improving your win probability (Pwin).

Government capture planning process starts after opportunity qualification and continues past proposal submission. Its goal is to position you to win before the government releases a Request for Proposal (RFP).

Your chances of winning government proposals without capture planning are the same as cutting classes during the semester in college and hoping to get an A on the final exam. It can possibly happen but “hope to win” is not a good business strategy for a government contracting company (or any business).

In order to raise your win rate, take this capture training to master techniques for customer engagement, intelligence gathering, win strategy development, competitive analysis, teaming, solution development, and more.
