Procurement

Government Projects

Having developed, written and edited RFPs on a broad range of issues in Tennessee, Krissy has unique experience to help your governmental agency prepare its procurement documents.  Examples of government projects include the preparation, review and editing of Requests for Information (RFIs), Requests for Proposals (RFPs) and related procurement documents such as pro forma contracts, RFP amendments, liquidated damages, performance guarantees and reporting requirements.

Vendors’ Responses

Many times a proposal may be disqualified for a minor technicality or failure to complete all required elements.  After scoring and evaluating multiple responses to Tennessee RFPs, Krissy understands this process and can help private organizations prepare successful, comprehensive proposals.  Examples of projects for private vendors include the preparation, review and editing of responses to RFPs and RFIs; the drafting of proposed amendments to proposals and pro forma contracts; and review of other mandatory procurement documentation.

Recent experience includes the development, preparation, and scoring of the State of Tennessee RFPs for (1) a new State employee health clinic (ParTNers for Health Center opened November, 2014) and (2) Communications and Education Services for the State Employee Health Plan (Benefits Administration).  

Grant Writing

Grant writing involves both a strong grasp of your organization’s policies and goals, and the  necessary advocacy skills that will persuade foundations and agencies to fund your project.  Examples of grant writing projects include the preparation of grant proposals for government agencies and private foundations; coordination with potential grantees on strategies, budget development and compliance; and ongoing reporting as needed.

Recent examples include the preparation and editing of a successful grant proposal for the Tennessee Association of Business Foundation on higher education issues.

Krissy has extensive writing experience on a range of issues including healthcare, wellness, nutrition and healthy vending; environment and energy; insurance; and public utilities. Throughout her professional career, she has written numerous white papers, state and local legislation, executive orders, state reports and other public policy analyses on a range of subjects.  Krissy also has developed and reviewed responses to media inquiries, press releases, speeches and website content.

Examples of published technical writing projects include the research and preparation of multiple Healthcare Market Overviews of U.S. metropolitan areas for HealthLeaders-InterStudy.
