Learn How to Get Work Under Contract Fast

This 1 hour webinar covers the process and nuances of how to write an unsolicited proposal and help the government justify the issuance of the sole-source contracts. It is a way to get work under contract fast. It helps both the contractor and the government avoid lengthy and expensive traditional procurement processes.

However, there are lots of misconceptions and misunderstandings about the sole source process. For example, sole source contracts are not only the domain of small disadvantaged businesses such as 8(a) and HUBZone certified companies but can be used by other small businesses (and even large ones).

Learn the seven authorities for issuing the sole source contracts, write unsolicited proposals, distinguish between situations that are appropriate and not appropriate for a sole source, use white papers and point papers like a pro business developer, help the government justify awarding the contract to your company, and more.
