BID Products | Proposal Publishing Services

Anyone who has put together a proposal in the past knows it involves more than just printing. The myriad of compliance specs and document challenges, as well as the need to integrate many products into one, is a time-consuming exercise where RFP document experts are needed. We make your production process easier and more cost effective, and we ensure the highest quality reflective of your company’s best side.

  • Compliant Templates
  • Copy-Editing
  • Formatting/Desktop Publishing
  • Style Guide Application
  • Quality and Compliance Control
  • Figure/Caption Numbering, Callout, and Index
  • High Quality Tabs
  • High- and Appropriate-Quality Cover, Spine, and Paper Materials
  • Detailed Final Quality-Control Checklists

It takes many different skills to outline, write, review, format, edit, and produce a proposal, especially when resources are tight, multiple opportunities occur, and you need your proposals produced in the quality that best reflects your company. Letting our proposal product experts handle the document formatting, editing, and production to RFP compliance specs allows you to focus on your content and save significant resources in the publication process.

The BID Designs® BID Products team gets started in the beginning when document templates are built. The team formats and edits at each review cycle to RFP specs and page counts and provides you with highly skilled and experienced proposal-publication professionalism.

First, we ensure that the proposal templates are built within MS Word in appropriate style guides. Next, we apply formatting and editing at each milestone so the document matures as your writing matures. Finally, we apply final publication to the proposal and apply our detailed, three-level, quality-control system to each proposal produced.

Key Features of Our Approach Your Benefits
Desktop Publishing Expertise Applying all advanced features of document production, your proposal will stand out from the rest with the attention to production detail our team places on every document.
Triple Quality Control From an initial internal edit and format, all proposal products are subject to two additional detailed, quality-control inspections that cover every angle of specific RFP requirements and overall document quality. Inspection sheets are delivered to our clients with the finished products.
RFP Experts It is difficult to find advanced, skilled document specialists who are also RFP experts. Our team of experts knows how to ensure that documents are 100% compliant with the RFP, while applying desktop publishing at the same time.

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.
