Whether a seasoned government contractor or entirely new to the market, the Ohio APEX Accelerator at YSU is here to help you every step of the way. Our personalized one-on-one counseling includes everything from determining your business readiness level and identifying potential opportunities to competing to win bids and understanding contract clauses and compliance. Not sure where to start? We can help with that too.
If you want to succeed in the government marketplace, you first need to set yourself up for success. You can do this by completing all applicable registrations (without these – you won’t be considered for any opportunities at all). In addition to registering, it is important to uncover any certifications you qualify for so you can bid on opportunities set-aside for those types of businesses. Some of the services we offer to assist with business readiness are:
- Registration Walkthrough
- Business Certification Preparation
- Exploring Past Performance
- Developing Capability Statements
- Cybersecurity Compliance Preparation
Proposal Writing and Invoicing
Once you’ve found your ideal opportunity, you need to bid on it. There’s an art and a science to proposal writing. The Ohio APEX Accelerator at YSU is here to help you make sure you’re submitting the strongest proposal you can. When you’ve won the award, we can also assist you with understanding how to maintain compliance with the many contract clauses, and even invoice on a DoD contract.

- Solicitation Review
- Proposal Review
- Wide-Area Workflow guidance
