What to do between Proposal Submittal and Award Notification: How VectorCSP Transitions Contracts

By | Blog Posts | No Comments

By: Bob Burnett, Vice President of Business Development If you were to distill government contracting into two macro buckets, you would end up with two categories, pursuing work and doing work. For Business Development (BD) professionals, the pursuing work phase is where we live and breathe; despite that, we know that work is won or lost based on the doing work phase. Performance on current tasking is what drives increased technical capability, a great reputation, and highly rated Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System (CPARS) from our clients. So, while BD folks may get the glory for “winning” new work, it is the…

By Bob Burnett, Director of OASIS PMO In this final installment of the 4-part series on Stoicism in Government Contracting, we focus on three more themes identified by The Daily Stoic that typify stoicism, namely Kindness, Amor Fati, and Memento Mori.

Creating a Social Media Presence for a Government Contracting Company

By | Blog Posts | No Comments

By: Frances Sherlock, Proposal Coordinator Like many small government contractors, VectorCSP has struggled to create a presence on social media. We had LinkedIn and Twitter profiles that we occasionally posted on. But there was no rhyme or reason to the posts – they happened when someone randomly remembered to post something. Was this bad? No. We had to push social media to the back burner while we focused on capture efforts and proposal bids. But that obviously didn’t help our social presence. An effective social media strategy requires consistently engaging, interacting, and posting in order to build a positive presence….
