Webinar: Develop a Mean Capabilities Statement to Win Government Contracts


Capability statement is a must in government contracting world to help government contractors market their services to the government and present their capabilities to teaming partners. It helps present a professional face to the world when exhibiting at different events such as trade shows or conferences.

It is not a simple brochure, however. Many government contractors miss an opportunity to put the right kinds of information on their capability statement. They also use a static brochure that is often irrelevant to the audience, too broad, and out of date because it’s hard to modify.

Capability statements come in different forms that are appropriate for various venues. They must tell a compelling story about your company. And they must help you present the right image to prospective customers and teammates.

This course covers various types of capability statements and their most appropriate uses. It also shows you how to create and best tailor your capability statement to the government clients and teaming partners.
