Title: SF330 Strategies – Navigating the Proposal Process
Presented by: Chris Mannix, Senior Proposal Manager, Woolpert, Inc.
Developing SF330 responses is part process and part strategy. In this session, we will dissect proven processes to prepare responsive SF330s while using real-world feedback from government reviewers and an actual solicitation breakout that is an example of requirements deviating from the norm. From my top SF330 tips, to hot buttons in the Section H, managing the basics of resumes and past performance, balancing client needs with opportunities to shine, the challenges of finding hidden requirements, and why debriefs matter, I will present a step-by-step discussion of each section highlighting key success factors.
