Estimating for Service Contracts – From the Federal Government Perspective 

In today’s Federal Services marketplace, as much as 60% of all Federal procurement dollars are spent on Service Contracts. 

The challenges for a Service Contract provider are broad and include shifts in technology, acquisition methods, and economics.  Service Contract providers are required to demonstrate their ability to deliver quality and timely services that meet or exceed the client’s expectations with reasonable prices in a highly competitive market.

The accuracy of your cost estimation can make or break your business. Being able to control costs by adhering to established guidelines, learning from previous service contract past performance, and reacting to current circumstances effectively and efficiently. Understanding how to properly divide the work tasks, labor requirements, deliverables, contract type risks, all costs, and successfully set-up a good cost strategy will help you gain control of this key area and ensure future profitability!

Lastly, you want to learn how to unseat an incumbent and increase your chances of winning your next service contract.
