Working With Us

BID Designs was founded in November 2006 by Huntsville native Brent Paris. The firm started in a home office and eventually grew into an 18-person company operating in our 5,000-square-foot proposal center in Perimeter Corporate Park. Through the years, BID Designs has evolved and re-aligned our company as our clients have, so we have constantly stayed in touch with the latest trends, needs, and challenges that our clients face. BID Designs does not use consultants to support proposal efforts, but rather we have established a highly experienced and trained workforce that has led to our exceptional 99% client-retention rate.

To date, we have a 100% client-referral base. Before we engage with any new client, we carefully evaluate that client’s needs to ensure that our business relationship will be an effective match in both expectations and services required.

BID Designs has always been there for SDI. We have used their fabulous services for everything from putting professional touches on briefings to handling almost every aspect of the coordination necessary to produce high quality, compliant, successful proposals. 2015-2016 is the third straight year we have participated in the BID Select Plan, and we are proud to have BID Designs on our team to help us win in the demanding Government contracts market.

BID Designs has been a proposal partner of Qualis Corporation for more than eight years, providing us support from proposal planning to submittal.  We entrust BID Designs with our win strategies and competitive information, and rely on them to consistently bring us real expertise, assured quality, and their commitment to our success.  Without fail — without skipping a beat — Brent Paris and his talented team continue to deliver for Qualis.
Cathy Shields, VP Business Development, Qualis Corporation
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.

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
BID Designs does an outstanding job of turning our concepts and ideas into compelling, hard-hitting graphics for both proposals and our marketing materials.  Their graphics team is thorough, effective, and ultimately focused on delivering customer satisfaction.

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.

I want to express my appreciation to BID Designs for developing and conducting this exceptional event (BID-ConneX).

I congratulate BID Designs for an excellent job — the best Huntsville conference that I have attended in the past 30 years. Thanks so much for your wonderful efforts to bring our business community together for the benefit of all. I am very much looking forward to your next conference.
