Pricing and Cost Volume proposal preparation, presentation, and compliance are critical to a successful government bid. At Redstone GCI, we not only understand the requirements of a fully responsive proposal but also appreciate the effort and stress that comes with the task. We have helped contractors ranging in size from $1 million to $1 billion, whether outsourcing the cost volume proposal entirely or supplementing current staff.


  • Cost Volume Development and Writing – We understand cost volume requirements and can draft cost volume narratives that adequately respond to the Government RFP.
  • Pricing Spreadsheets – Our highly trained pricing experts develop forward pricing and prepare government pricing worksheets. We can develop compliant in-house pricing models for any level of complexity. We are also experienced in using the solicitation-specific Excel Pricing Models (EPMs) now required by many Government agencies.
  • Subcontract Cost and Price Analysis – Our compliance experts perform cost and price analysis on proposed subcontractors to ensure cost/price reasonableness.
  • Small Business Plans – Our team of experts can assist in developing RFP-compliant small business plans.
  • Subcontract Development – We draft subcontracts to secure proper flow-down of contract clauses and assist with subcontract negotiations and administration.
  • Labor Rate Development – Our specialists utilize national salary surveys to help contractors develop realistic direct labor rates for future contract efforts that are DCAA-approved.
  • Red Team Review – All Proposal Volumes – Our experience with Government acquisitions results in impactful comments when reviewing and delivering a high-quality, well-presented proposal.
  • Proposal Compliance – We ensure your proposal thoroughly and effectively complies with all RFP requirements to ensure contractor responsiveness.
  • Basis of Estimate (BOE) Assistance and Review – We help develop a BOE with your organization, displaying the work needed to perform the RFP requirements.
