RFP and Proposal Writers

Boardroom Metrics provides Request for Proposal (RFP) Response Writing services to clients in Canada, the United States and Europe.

This unique RFP proposal response service was founded seven years ago by a Boardroom Metrics Accomplished Executive from the legal industry.

It brings together a team of six proposal writing experts in Canada, the US and Europe who have helped clients win multi-million dollar corporate and government ‘requests for proposal’ at the Corporate, Provincial, State and Federal levels.

There are several common reasons that organizations outsource their RFP proposal response work to Boardroom Metrics. They include:

  • Never written one before
  • Poor track record of winning
  • Lack the internal resources required
  • Short time line for completion and no way to handle internally

The Urgency Business

We get calls from clients all hours of the day and on weekends. We understand sense of urgency and have dedicated ourselves to the fact that we are in the urgency business. Clients who need RFP help quickly don’t need to hesitate in reaching out for assistance.

Proposal Project Management

Integral to our RFP-winning formula is the ability to manage the RFP project from start through to completion. We understand the controls and time pressures, and we take into consideration the smallest of details to ensure the highest quality outcome.

We work with Public companies, Entrepreneurs, Professional Service firms, Private companies, Associations and Not for Profit Agencies.

Our approach is based on determining what the Proposal Issuer really needs.

Our writers interpret each document and collaborate with your team to craft a meaningful response that clearly communicates your company’s value and unique capabilities, above all other bidders.
