Subcontractor Compliance

TMG provides support to companies seeking to ensure subcontractor pricing volumes are compliant with solicitation requirements.  Typically, subcontractors will not share their proprietary information with their prime, leaving the prime unsure if the subcontractor’s volume will be evaluated in a manner that will reflect positively on the prime’s offer.

TMG can serve as your compliance verifier, helping primes ensure their bids are not affected negatively by deficient subcontractor submissions and helping subcontractors prepare correct submissions.  This quality control benefits both the prime and subcontractors in assuring they have put forth submissions that are compelling, competitive, and accurate.
