The Proposal Backstory
Delta Engineering hired Outsource Marketing’s proposal writing service to help prepare its bid for the Canol Heritage Trail RFP.
The Canol Heritage Trail is a 355-kilometre-long trail running from Norman Wells, Northwest Territories, through the Mackenzie Mountains, to the Yukon border. The trail follows the route of the Canol Road lying within the Northwest Territories, constructed during the Second World War by the United States Army Corps of Engineers to build and service a pipeline bringing oil from Norman Wells to a refinery in Whitehorse, Yukon. It was abandoned after only thirteen months of operation.
After the Americans decided the Canol project was a failure, it was abandoned and sold for scrap to Imperial Oil. Some valuable equipment was salvaged, but a great deal of pipeline, wire, vehicles and buildings, as well as various contaminants, were left behind.
Public Works and Government Services Canada issued an RFP in March 2017 requesting bids for the Canol Trail Remediation project in the Northwest Territories. This phase of the project was to remove contaminants, collect bundles of wire, secure standing buildings and address physical hazards.
Our Plan of Action for Proposal Writing
Successfully responding to an RFP from Public Works and Government Services Canada is no easy feat. Their requirements are demanding, and in order to win, your proposal must be detailed, comprehensive, and precise.
This was a large, important project for our client, and they needed help meeting the proposal requirements. Our bid writing service began with a full-day kick-off meeting. We went question by question, requirement by requirement, developing the raw content to address each RFQ question and proposal element. After we wrote a few drafts and incorporated the client’s feedback, we began to develop visual elements, including graphics, tables and charts, that would help tell the story of our client’s approach in a more engaging manner.
Working quickly and efficiently helped save a few days and gave us a few days prior to submission to review the proposal in its entirety and ensure every requirement was met and each question was written to maximize Delta Engineering’s score.
