  • Coordinate with corporate functions for contracts, pricing, and recruiting to ensure those aspects of proposal development are incorporated into the schedule and appropriately addressed
  • Monitor sources such as GovWin and for solicitation release and updates for assigned opportunities and communicate/disseminate to the proposal team
  • Maintain and consistently update proposal repositories on SharePoint
  • Update proposal-related data in opportunity pipeline entries for assigned opportunities
  • Contribute to maintenance/continual improvement of Growth resources, including the Growth SharePoint portal, proposal reuse library, and past performance library
