Ianthe Consulting, LLC, United States
Keywords: Proposal Management, Renewable Energy, Cloud Technology, Best PracticesRenewable energy advances in the U.S. will, in a very large way, be driven by the Department of Defense energy initiatives and contracts. The Request for Proposals (RFPs) issued for power generation at U.S. bases, transportation, and soldier power will be complex and require commercial vendors to efficiently coordinate with their partner/teaming companies to respond to these RFPs quickly. Drawing from the lessons learned responding to the $7 Billion Army Renewable Alternative Energy (RAE) Multiple-Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) and similar RFPs, Ms. Douglas will discuss the necessary infrastructure and processes to make any renewable energy vendor’s proposal team successful. She will demonstrate how cloud-based project management solutions foster cross-functional team collaboration for proposal content development, even when members of a company may be unfamiliar with bidding on federal contracts or in disparate locations. By implementing these green proposal practices, attendees of this presentation will have the foundational skills necessary to either build or enhance their company’s proposal process, and increase the chance of winning awards for the rapidly expanding opportunities in defense renewable energy projects.
