Rainmaker Services and Capabilities

It doesn't matter if you're out to land a new contract or trying to execute the ones you have, we are ready to help! Here's what we can do for you:

Planning and Scheduling

Project Planning

Detailed plans support flawless execution.  During the proposal process each facet of the program must be examined and the results documented in a series of plans and schedules.  Waiting to plan until the contract is awarded can lead to delayed starts, over budget projects, and loss of flexibility.  Rainmaker has especially well developed planning and scheduling techniques that will produce achievable plans within the resources allocated.

Budgeting and EVMS

The Earned Value Management System (EVMS) is rapidly evolving from a "nice to have" management tool to a mandatory tool on certain contracts.  Implementing EVMS requires detailed program schedules, time phased budgets, and knowledge of the process.  Rainmaker can help guide you through the process.

New Business Pursuit

Capture Planning

Rainmaker can advise or lead your capture team to help plan your next new business pursuit.  We can help develop your win strategy, win themes, and the capture plan. We can also help you shape the market to your advantage prior to the customer RFP.

Proposal Writing

Rainmaker has extensive experience proposal writing, editing and proposal management. We have created winning proposals and strategies for a wide range of customers.  Our proposals have helped our customers win major contracts with the U.S. Postal Service and the Department of Defense.  We provide as much or as little assistance as you need to win the business.

Project Management

In addition to world class proposals, Rainmaker can also provide needed subject matter expertise in a number of critical areas including project management, contract administration, budgeting, and logistics.

Project Management

Rainmaker has extensive project and program management experience for contracts in the $50M+ region.  We can provide expertise in supply chain management, project planning and scheduling, and the day-to-day operations of the project.  Problem identification and resolution (e.g., engineering changes/retrofits) are a speciality.

Contract Administration

Once you win the business you need to execute the contract within the agreed-upon scope.  Rainmaker can ensure all pertinent deliverable items are provided per the contract requirements.  We also can help manage scope creep and ensure you are fulfilling all the customer's technical and non-technical requirements.

Logistics Engineering

Today's customers expect world class support services.  Meeting those expectations without exceeding the budget requires an integrated approach where each service provider (field service, documentation, training, etc.) has coordinated their activities to eliminate duplication of effort. Rainmaker has applied this methodology to several large scale projects and can help ensure your success.
