Multi-disciplined experience and leadership capabilities of our proposal support teams are our biggest assets.

Excellent Client Win-rate

CADRE Client win-rate is approaching 90 percent on assignments when we’re involved in the “front-end”. Recent contracts include products/services for Manned & Unmanned Aircraft, Tactical Vehicles, and IT/SATCOM Programs.

Half the Cost of Competitors

Our daily rates are less than the Shipley fee and less than half the cost of the SM&A hourly rates when compared to a 10 hour day. Our rates cover a “typical proposal work day” of 10-12 hours or usually whatever it takes.

No Overstaffing

One inherent difference between CADRE and our competitors is we will not automatically front load the proposal with Volume Managers, Assistants, etc. We will work closely with you to keep staffing to a minimum and timed correctly.

Consultant Depth

Consultant average tenure with CADRE is 25 years. CADRE prides itself on providing the ultimate formula — consultants with a mixture of technical discipline background (some multi-disciplined) and in-the-trenches proposal development experience.

Process Flexibility

CADRE can easily integrate into any established proposal infrastructure. We have experience in all proposal formats and processes and rely on the solicitation variables, internal resources and proposal content requirements to define the process needed.


“Your hard work paid off! We scored #1 in the technical, logistics, and manufacturing areas. Everyone on the proposal team contributed to the win, but it is clear that a large portion of the credit goes to the Red Team and the significantly improved proposal that resulted from the implementation of your recommendations.”
– Interstate Electronics Corporation


“For the past several weeks I have had the pleasure of working with Phil Lindquist. During that time he made numerous significant and profound contributions toward successfully completing on time my portion of the proposal. With his background in electrical engineering and computers, Phil showed that he is uniquely qualified in dealing with proposals in the communications-electronics area.”
