Introduction

When companies are bidding on Government contracts, it is natural for them to want to know what their competitions’ bid price will be for the same contract. That’s where McNulty & Associates comes in. We use our tools and experience to analyze the RFP, the Competition, the Government budget, the buying habits of the Government agency, and more, to build a competitor pricing model which predicts what the bid prices will be for each of the competitors bidding the job. We then give that to our customer and they leverage our analysis to increase their win probability (Pwin). This works very well. So well, that most of the major aerospace and defense contractors hire us and have won $B and $B over the years. It is intellectually challenging work and also very satisfying to see our clients win!
