Many times PTAC counselors are asked “What is a capability statement?”

Many times PTAC counselors are asked “What is a capability statement?”

The purpose of a capability statement is to tell the government at any level who you are and what you do. It is not necessarily a sales tool but rather an information document about your company in a very coherent and easily read format.

 

What should be in a capability statement? Capability statements should include five sections:

  1. company overview

  2. core competencies

  3. company data

  4. past performance

  5. differentiators

 

Core competencies outline the organization’s main expertise and how it specifically relates to the agency work for which it is applying. Differentiators is what separates your organization from the competition.

 

In this article we’ve included a government friendly capability statement sample and an editable word document so you can get started on your capability statement. Please be sure to review it with one of our PTAC counselors to make sure you have all the points addressed.
