Community Outreach

BID Designs® is focused on local business growth and makes a concerted effort to procure as many support services as possible within the Huntsville community. BID Designs is successfully helping fill the gap of resource constraints and funding deficits faced by many community organizations by promoting passionate volunteerism. Our ultimate goals are to impact lives, assist community organizations, and help maintain Huntsville/Madison County as one of the best places to live and work.



The Women’s Business Center of North Alabama (WBCNA) aims to help both men and women start businesses and continue to grow them by being the source of all needed information, while also providing a support system for business owners. The WBCNA created the Government Procurement Assistance Center (GPAC) in 2010 to provide training and support for woman who are potential or existing government contractors. Although the Center’s focus is on women, services are available to everyone. WBCNA offers various events and courses that are available to those who wish to grow their businesses or make their businesses economically stronger.
BID Designs has sponsored WBCNA GPAC since its inception and continues to support small businesses by providing resources and advanced workshop instruction.




Chamber of Commerce

Local business members of the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce have access to networking opportunities, relationships, partnerships, and additional credibility. Member businesses stay on top of important, ever-changing issues and trends within the community and marketplace.
The Ambassador Program consists of a selected group of volunteers from the Chamber membership, who are enthusiastic about sharing Chamber events and benefits with the community, while also building member commitment. The Ambassador Program provides members with the opportunity to raise awareness about their individual businesses, give back to the community, and network among other businesses.
ChamberON is a sponsorship drive to raise money needed to fund various Chamber events and programs. Volunteers for the campaign encourage current members to use the membership benefits, while also introducing businesses to the value of Chamber membership.




BID Designs® provides internship opportunities to high school graduates and college students. Our internship program provides opportunities to expand skills developed in the classroom and enhances their professional development in specific areas. We are always looking for creative thinkers and determined individuals to join our team!


BID Designs has been instrumental in helping us improve our proposal process and product. Their team is a pleasure to work with and is extremely gifted in helping us tell a clear story and provide a clear answer in our proposals. They eliminate the logistical and communications snafus that often make proposal writing tedious and costly. BID Design’s attention to detail and document compliance streamlines the entire experience and gives so much peace of mind. Their insights and business-development mentality have been helpful in all areas of our business.

Partnering with BID Designs affords Ignite a full complement of bid and proposal capabilities typically only found within the largest of companies. This partnership is a critical component for our next phase of growth and maturation. The cost savings of our contract with BID Designs ensures proposal support availability all year long with full-time trained RFP experts working to ISO standards, which means our resources have tripled for less than the cost of hiring one person in proposals.
Jason Shelton, President/CEO, Ignite
I’ve worked with BID Designs for a long time. The value they bring to our team is unmeasurable. Our growth in 2017, and what we are expecting in 2018, could not have been possible without the professionalism, responsiveness, and market knowledge of BID Designs.

By utilizing BID Designs, we have been able to dramatically increase the amount and quality of our proposals, giving us the ability to capture new contracts.

BID Designs was instrumental in creating the proposals to help Envisioneering win 3 major contracts worth nearly $150M in the past 15 months, with another proposal pending. The contracts awarded cover the Envisioneering support for advanced radar systems and electronic warfare countermeasures to protect Navy ships.  BID Designs has played a key role in more than 20 major proposals during their continuing 10 year relationship with Envisioneering. They do everything they are asked to do, accurately and timely, and they keep our proposal team on track. We consider their support essential to every proposal that we do.
Brad Lewis, President, Envisioneering, Alexandria, VA
BID Designs has provided invaluable proposal compliance and production support that has helped SDI to improve its probability of winning for every proposal utilizing their processes. We are very happy with the results from utilizing BID Designs. SDI has never had a proposal rejected due to non-compliance to the proposal requirements.
Bob Portney, President, SDI, Huntsville, AL
Finding the BID Designs team has been a game-changer for our company. They add unbelievable value for small companies that can’t afford a full-blown, full-time proposal production and management team. With the support we have received from BID Designs, we won our very first Prime Contract this year. We could not have achieved that without them. We highly recommend the BID Designs team to any company that desires growth within the DoD sector.
Lawana Brockwell, Owner/CEO & Tim Brockwell, Owner/President, Brockwell Technologies, Inc., Huntsville, AL
The staff at BID Designs provided exceptional compliance support for some of our recent proposals. Not only did they collect and interpret detailed requirements of the RFP instructions, but they also incorporated numerous amendment changes into the compliance matrix before we became aware of an amendment being released. Their prompt actions saved us valuable time and eliminated duplication of resources.
Roger A. Rhodes, Corporate Development, MTA, Inc., Huntsville, AL
