retain & re-capture

Congratulations! Your hard work has paid off. You won and are performing on one or more government prime or subcontracts.

Don’t spend too much time patting yourself on the back for arriving in the winner’s circle.

The hard work goes on, but from a different perspective. Lasting success in GovCon depends on getting off on the right foot. It requires developing strong project management plans that include robust risk monitoring and mitigation. Client communications need to be planned and documented. Your employees must be trained to understand their role, and to recognize and avoid the invisible lines of propriety that must never be crossed as they provide vital services to support the government. Your contract management team needs to be ever vigilant to proactively maximize your past performance record. This same team must be trained and empowered to HUNT for new opportunities.
