The Federal Proposal Experts provides low-cost proposal consulting services, high-quality proposal templates, customized proposal documents and proposal training services.

The Federal Proposal Experts is led by Shannon Lindauer.  Shannon is a leading capture and proposal expert in the U.S. Federal Government market space and has written and managed 1,402 Federal proposals for agencies in the Department of Defense, the Intelligence Community, and Federal Civilian departments.  She has more than 13 years of experience leading proposal and capture teams for large businesses that include L-3 Communications, LexisNexis, Robbins Gioia and ECS Federal.  She has also been a successful bid and capture consultant for dozens of small to medium-sized companies across the country. 

Shannon started The Federal Proposal Experts with the intention of sharing senior-level knowledge about winning Federal contracts with small businesses. The Federal Proposal Experts makes this knowledge available at a significantly lower cost structure than most proposal consulting companies by employing efficiencies applied by master-level proposal experts and by keeping our corporate overhead low.

The Federal Proposal Experts' consulting services, products and workshops are designed for Woman Owned Small Businesses (WOSB), Disadvantaged Minority Owned Business Enterprises (DMBE), Veteran Owned and Service Disabled Veteran Owned (SDVOSB), and Minority Owned 8a companies.
