I applied for a contract and was not successful. Now what do I do?

Post Date: May 22, 2024
  • Always request a debriefing.
    • Ask who won the contract.
    • Ask how you can improve for the next opportunity.
    • Ask what future opportunities will be available.
  • If you believe there are potential opportunities for small purchases within that agency that your company can fulfill and your initial contact shows limited interest, consider if directly calling purchasing/departments would be appropriate. You can often find these contacts by searching their website or calling the general number on their website.
  • Build relationships and be sure to support their goals, not pressure sales.
  • Review your marketing plan.
