EPS Corporation is a leading Federal Contractor. We are currently seeking a Program Manager with IT and Proposal Management background.
We are currently looking for a smart, motivated Project Manager with Proposal Management expertise in Bid and Proposal operations for Information Technology-focused companies or divisions supporting Federal Government clients.
This role is critical to our organization, and the right candidate will be capable of and comfortable with having and leveraging the inherent and earned authority to drive and manage proposal efforts, at many times managing multiple concurrent major and minor responses. You will be the person responsible for managing the full life cycle from, solicitation to submission, proposal activity for EPS for assigned proposals. Responsibility for the successful completion of projects from kickoff meeting to closeout documentation and customer billing.
In this role, you will establish and develop close working relationships with our executive team as well as our contracts team, HR team, directors, program managers, and technical experts.
We work as a team, and wear multiple hats, sharing the effort to get to the finish line. To be successful you must be a self-motivated and perseverant worker with a 'get it done' attitude. You must be extremely resourceful, creative, and excellent at organizing, tracking, and managing multiple concurrent projects.
Your ability to extract results from various parties in a polite but firm manner is critical.
Ideal candidate characteristics include strong analytical abilities, decision making skills, sound business judgment, and excellent communication, negotiating and planning skills. You should be adaptive to change.
The following activities will constitute the majority of your responsibilities, though this is not an exhaustive list:
Manage major and minor proposal efforts. The level of support required ranges from cradle to grave management of major efforts, to coordination support for smaller efforts.
Perform a careful, detailed analysis of solicitations, including RFIs, RFPs, RFQs, TOs, etc. resulting in a thorough understanding of items required for a compliant response including development of a requirements matrix, and the ability to create and deliver briefs on response requirements and schedule.
Manage diverse teams from prime, subcontractor, and consultant organizations.
Schedule and manage color reviews, including scheduling and managing to pens-down deadlines pre-review and consolidating and formatting master documents for each volume for each color review.
Review proposal sections for consistency and clarity, compliance with RFP/RFI/RFQ requirements, and alignment with proposed solutions and themes.
Provide formatting, proofing, and editing of documents throughout the response cycle.
Manage and perform production activities.
Familiarize yourself thoroughly with and maintain a strong understanding of our range of services and products, strategic partnerships, past performance and past responses.
Ability to manage and track several projects simultaneously showing attention to detail and problem solving.
Project management principles to ensure the project goals of time, cost, and quality are met or exceeded.
Ability to collaborate and work effectively as a team leader.
Proven dynamic interpersonal skills to interact with all levels of management and technical support staff.
To be successful in this role, we expect that qualified candidates will have the following skills and experience:
Proven ability to deliver in a role exactly like this. If you have been successfully operating in a Proposal Director or Lead Proposal Manager role for a smaller IT government contractor company with responsibility for proposal efforts, full life cycle, and a successful track record of managing and winning large, complex Federal Government proposals.
Self-starter that can work independently with minimal oversight along with a proactive service attitude and willingness to take a hands-on approach.
Must have extensive experience with multi-faceted proposals requiring client reference checks, technical volumes, past performance volumes, price/cost volumes, and management volumes.
Strong knowledge of the Federal Government procurement process, experience with managing full life cycle proposal efforts for Federal Civilian, DoD, and Intelligence Community customers, experience with commercial proposals, and experience in managing and coordinating the work of multi-disciplinary teams.
Exceptional time management skills and, critically, the willingness and ability to deliver high quality work under aggressive deadlines.
A Secret Clearance is preferred but not required; the willingness and ability to obtain and maintain a government security clearance is required.
U.S. Citizenship is required.
Bachelor’s Degree and a minimum of three years of progressive relevant experience required.
Proficiency in MS Project, Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.
Some travel required
