Develop an online platform for the Small Business Team at a global aerospace and defense company to automate their process for crafting individual subcontracting plans for government proposals and contract compliance that require a certain percent of the awarded budget be allocated to small disadvantaged businesses.

  • Small Business Team tasked with
    • Procuring small business sub-contractors to help secure government contracts
    • Find, vet, and qualify small business sub-contractors to ensure contract compliance
Business Need
  • An automated web-based tool that generates individual subcontracting plans
  • The plans are produced as official government proposals and ongoing contract compliance
  • Develop an online platform for employees (requestors) to enter pertinent information into a form Wizard
  • The implementation of IP machine learning and logic to assist in collecting accurate information specific to the deliverables identified in the proposal/contract save time by ensuring minimal back and forth between requestors and small business team

  • Requestor can submit an internal work order (IWO) list if the company has a team qualified to help provide funds and resources to fulfill the contract’s requirements
  • Bill of Materials (BOM/EBOM) template allows requestors to list all the materials required to fulfill the contract and determine the budget
  • Supplier information fields allow requestor to enter information about the small business contractors they want to engage to fulfill requirements and list relevant small business government certifications (8a, HUBZone, SDVOSB, etc.)
  • The inclusion of a mandatory unique description field allows requestors to add additional information beyond the form fields specific to the contract they are bidding on
  • Small Business Team creates the formal proposal that is auto-filled from the requestor’s content field submissions
  • Small Business Team has access to a robust dashboard that displays requests and has list of actionable tasks
  • Small Business Team seamlessly generates official government documents and cover letters through the platform that is dynamically driven to pull content from SharePoint fields
