We will assist you in preparing well-supported cost proposal volumes that will meet the requirements of FAR Part 15 and solicitation requirements and minimize risks of DCAA audit or procurement challenges to your cost development, estimating, and presentation methodology.

Our assistance also includes the development or review of your indirect rate forecast or a more formal Forward Pricing Rate Proposals (FPRP) for long-term use in pricing prospective cost proposals.

After the submission of your cost or rate proposals, we will support your staff during DCAA audits.


Thorough proposal preparation, presentation, and compliance are key to a successful and responsive government bid. At Redstone Government Consulting, not only do we understand the attributes and requirements of a fully responsive proposal, but we also understand the manpower and stress that comes with the proposal preparation. We have helped contractors ranging in size from $1,000,000 to $1,000,000,000 with their proposal needs, whether it’s outsourcing the proposal in its entirety or supplementing the current staff. We help contractors get the job done and get it done well.
