Toronto RFP Writer Service

Each of our writers is corporately trained with successful industry backgrounds in infrastructure, technology, professional services, staffing, transportation and other segments. They have helped clients of all sizes prepare billions of dollars of winning proposals at the Federal, State, Provincial, Municipal and Corporate levels.

Why RFP Writing Clients Work With Boardroom Metrics

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

  • Never written an RFP, RFI, or RFP before
  • Poor track record of winning formal RFP proposal responses
  • Lack the internal resources required to respond or to manage peaks and valleys
  • Seeking professional insight and expertise for improving the quality of their internal RFP response process
  • Short time line for completion of the RFI or RFP Response and no way to handle internally

We regularly supplement and even lead corporate proposal writing teams on large, complex projects.

We understand the sense of urgency a client feels when they decide they need help responding to an RFP.
