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.
To request support, please complete the contact form on this site. Our Client Care Team will review your requirements and set up a call-back time with you and your authorized buyer.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your effort is assigned to one of our highly trained and professional Engagement Specialists to ensure that your effort is handled through one person.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
BID Designs provides a consistent and high-quality product while maintaining outstanding customer service throughout all phases of the proposal development cycle.
BID Designs is a valuable partner of WBCNA. They are the title sponsor of our Government Procurement Assistance Center (GPAC) and are the providers of proposal training for the WBCNA GPAC Program. The services that they provide to government contractors are top quality and success oriented.
I want to express my appreciation to BID Designs for developing and conducting this exceptional event (BID-ConneX). The entire conference was outstanding, including the food, facilities, and fellowship with local business leaders. 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.
BID Designs is an outstanding company that produces highly effective and innovative solutions in a professional, timely, and cost-effective manner. We have used their services on several projects, and each one has been a tremendous success.
