BidPrime's 'RFP Insights' Provides Government Vendors Competitive Edge on Bid Proposals

BidPrime announced the release of a service to help businesses in pursuing government contracts.

RFP Insights

BidPrime, an Austin-based company, which provides real-time comprehensive database of government bids and contract opportunities, has expanded upon the robust solutions offered to businesses pursuing public sector contracts.

The tool will assist businesses in gaining an understanding on why they may have lost on a public sector RFP, why a competitor won, and obtain other important insights, before submitting future proposals.

According to Stephen Hetzel, BidPrime’s Operations Officer and Co-Founder, the information made available through RFP Insights will help businesses succeed in securing these beneficial government contracts; “The data we provide clients will help them compete in a dynamic, competitive public marketplace. By having information about incumbent contracts, proposals, and agency scoring methods and decision factors, information is power. Understanding why a previous proposal won or lost will help our clients better position themselves in the future.”

The company has assembled a team of public information legal professionals who will research, compile, and provide competitive intelligence on active and expired bids and RFPs.

Each request will contain any of the following, for a small fee:

  • Existing contract with the current statement of work.
  • Copy of winning proposal.
  • Agency evaluations, tabulations, scoring sheets and matrices.
  • Last 1-year invoices / purchase orders / task orders attached to the contract.

As part of the information above, BidPrime's public information legal professionals will complete the following, within strict ethical standards:

  • Identify appropriate agency contacts;
  • File FOIA / Public Information petitions using relative and appropriate state guidelines;
  • Assure anonymity and confidentiality with each request;
  • Complete request with coordination from Client;
  • Delivery of related documents in timely manner, in electronic PDF format.

BidPrime will cover the first $200 of any agency processing and copying fees requested by the agency, included in the cost of BidPrime's RFP Insights package. Some additional fees may be required for agencies that require more than $200 for appropriate redaction and processing fees.

Active BidPrime clients will be able to use the RFP Insights service at a significant discount.

Hetzel noted, “A number of our early adopter clients, who used RFP Insights, expressed the importance of their anonymity in the process. We recognized the importance of this and have taken steps to operate a secure workflow, from the anonymous requester to the government agency.”
