How do you determine the LOE?

We review the available solicitation information (past or drafts) and the hours we have used on similar bids to develop a level of effort. On average small proposals can take from 25-40 hours, and large complex bids make take 90-140 hours. The more you or your team are engaged in the process, the more likely we will need hours closer to the lower end of the range. For every bid, we only bill the hours worked.

Can you create my solution?

Our expertise is the proposal process, and with a few exceptions, we are not in a position to create your solution. We have access to Solution Architects and other Subject Matter Experts through our network, and would be happy to bring them in to support your proposal effort.

What are the OCI requirements?

As a general practice, Faunce Associates will only support one client per bid. The rare exceptions are GSA Schedule proposals and some of the scorecard based procurements. In those cases we are transparent and ensure that the teams working those bids are firewalled off from each. When you reach out for support, we will check our schedule of engagements to confirm our availability to support your effort. If we are not available, we will connect with another consultant (someone we know and trust) to get you the support you need.

How often will you update the content in the knowledge base?

We plan to provide new training content on a quarterly basis. The Business Development Mixtape will be an ongoing series with regular updates.
