How To Differentiate and Communicate Value – Communicating Quantifiable and Qualifiable Metrics (Webinar)

Anyone can say, “We are a technology company” or a “general contractor” or a company that sells “electrical equipment” or “engineering services.” But that’s what EVERYONE does and provides little differentiation or separation from their competition. In this webinar, we will start with how to brand yourself, your products and/or services, and your company. Then we discuss the categories for differentiation and walk through multiple exercises on how to “bridge” capabilities for perceived differentiation, a very important process for smaller businesses. We then finish up with consolidating these lessons and discuss how to market them.

Unlike most webinars, this is more than a general or abstract discussion. We will focus on metrics you can use to improve how you describe your company and the solutions you provide. This webinar provides award-winning techniques and strategies that have directly helped companies win more than $1.8 Billion in government contracts. As a result of these strategies, the presenter, Mr. Joshua Frank, managing partner of RSM Federal, received the SBA’s Veteran Business of the Year and the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Small Business Advocate of the Year awards.

This webcast is offered to Alaska registered PTAC clients only. Call 786-7258 or email jysummers@alaska.edu for registration site and access code.

Government Certifications as Marketing Tools (Webinar)

Often businesses feel that they need to have every and all socio-economic certifications before contracts will fall at their feet. Unfortunately that’s not at all how it works. Granted, government certifications, such as 8(a), HUBZone, WOSB or CVE, do provide the opportunity to bid on restricted or set-aside solicitations. Mostly, these certifications are simply value-added marketing tools, and like most tools, their value is dependent upon correct usage.

This webinar will provide a brief introduction and the eligibility requirements for each socio-economic certification and how to determine which certification if right for your business. The webinar will also discuss how and when to market your certifications to enhance your business.

Peak Proposal Prowess – A Primer for SF330 Production (Webinar)

Three live webinars (April 9th, April 10th, and April 11th, 2019)

Under the Brooks Act, architecture and engineering services (A-E Services) must be procured
through a qualifications-based process for agencies to select the most highly qualified firms –
not the lowest price.

Since 2004, A-E firms submit their qualifications on the Standard Form 330 (SF330) for federal government agencies (and some state and local agencies). The SF330 form is designed to demonstrate a firm’s competence and qualifications to perform the work required by the government.

Developing SF330 responses to government solicitations is part art and part process. In this 3-
part training we’ll dissect the best practices and the proven process to prepare detailed and responsive SF330s while letting your creativity and brand come through. Using real-world feedback from Government reviewers, we’ll present a step-by-step discussion of each SF330 section, emphasizing key success factors to ensure the entire submission highlights your firm’s personnel and past performance to help you rise to the top.

Here’s what you will learn:

Webinar 1 – An Overview of the SF330 and Standard Best Practices for Part I and Part II
(60 minutes)

  • SF330 evolution from the SF254/255

  • Trends today

  • Critical success factors

  • How agencies evaluate the forms

  • Overview of Part I

  • Overview of Part II

  • SF330 Preparation Checklist

  • Data calls to support your win themes

Webinar 2 – Preparing your SF330 Response; Part I Sections A-G (90 Minutes)

  • Sections A and B – Stick to the facts

  • Section C – Maximize your team

  • Section D – Organizational Charts that display success

  • Section E – Show your professional qualifications

  • Section F – Demonstrate specialized experience

  • Section G – Relationship status

Webinar 3 – Preparing your SF330 Response; Part I Section H, Part II, and Final Quality
Control (90 Minutes)

  • Section H

  • Dissecting the solicitation

  • Outlining and storyboarding each required factor

  • Part II – required information and alignment with Sections C, E, and F

  • SF330 QC Checklist

This webcast is offered to Alaska registered PTAC clients only. Call 786-7258 or email jysummers@alaska.edu for registration site and access code.

We will also touch upon often overlooked portions of the FAR, including FAR Part 3, Improper Business Conflicts and Personal Conflicts of Interest; FAR Part 6, Competition Requirements; and FAR Part 9, Contractor Qualifications. After that, we will focus on other critical sections, including FAR Part 19, Small Business Programs; FAR Part 31, Contract Cost Principles and Procedures; and FAR Part 33, Protests, Disputes and Appeals. Finally, we will discuss agency supplements to the FAR and deviations. Learn how to navigate the FAR, how to stay in compliance with their regulatory obligations, and how the FAR is interpreted and applied by the Boards and Courts.
