Contracting with Milwaukee County - First Steps
The road to successful contracting, like all worthwhile endeavors, begins with planned, focused and determined first steps. The route to government contracting, at the municipal, state or federal level, is very much the same as contracting in the private sector. Every business should have a thorough understanding of its capabilities and its capacity in very realistic terms. Developing a detailed Statement of Qualifications (SOQ) will assist in this step. An SOQ will also assist in marketing, outreach and promotion of your business and its services.
The next item of utmost import in successful contracting, is knowing your customer. The understanding and respect you have for the needs, wants and desires, as well as the business structure, procedures and funding capabilities, of your customer will factor greatly into your success in working with and for them.
