Identifying who buys, how much, and how often is called “Propensity” — it helps you identify which military commands and federal agencies to target. This course, designed for “Procurement Readiness,” will accelerate your ability to validate who buys what you sell (down to the state, city, and contracting office level). This, in turn, will help you transform how and where you engage the market and validate the competitiveness of your pricing for any specific opportunity.
Utilizing beta.SAM’s Data Bank (formerly FPDS), Mr. Frank will walk you through an extensive, step-by-step process so that you can perform this research on your own.
Here’s what you will learn:
- How to identify your NAICS codes and your SBA size standards;
- How to quickly search SAM’s Data Bank;
- How to run advanced ad hoc queries;
- How to locate your competitor’s pricing; and
- How to find quality teaming partners.
With millions of data fields, Mr. Frank will demonstrate the tips and tricks for MS Excel pivot tables to help you find the answers you need for your sales strategy.
If you’re familiar with government data but not confident about how to filter or make sense of it, this session is for you. It will make you more competitive, help you identify and validate competitive price points (CPP) (whether your pricing is competitive), and help you more strongly target government buyers and teaming partners.
This course is more than a general or abstract discussion. It provides award-winning tactics and strategies that have directly helped companies win more than $2.8 Billion in definitive contracts and more than $30 billion in multiple-award contracts. As a result of these strategies, Mr. Frank, managing partner at RSM Federal, was awarded SBA’s Veteran Business of the Year and Small Business Advocate of the Year by the Society of American Military Engineers.
