PROJECT PREPARATION SERVICES
PRE-PROPOSAL AND RFP PREPARATION
COVA prides itself on following bid opportunities in the greater Los Angeles Area. We often come across projects that are looking for multiple trades and services, and are passionate about ensuring local and small companies are afforded the opportunity to compete. Our team provides proposal preparation services so that your company is prepared to compete on any size project.
Many companies do not realize they are eligible to apply for certifications through local municipalities, such as the City and County of Los Angeles, and State of California. We meet with your team to determine what you are eligible for, and oversee the entire process until your certification is received. Visit the Certification section of our website for examples of COVA’s certifications.
EXTERNAL RELATIONS & MEETING PARTICIPATION
Most projects require that someone from your team attend a pre-proposal meeting to learn about the project and/or have a representative speak about your capabilities. We locate opportunities for our clients to participate in construction projects, and can attend the meeting on your behalf to ensure your trade or service is considered. We report back directly to you, and determine next steps together.
