The majority of our sales come through a competitive procurement process, which requires answering a government or university Request for Proposal (“RFP”). The Proposal Manager owns the procurement process and works hand-in-hand with the sales and product teams to construct and execute responses. The Proposal Manager will manage the entire project timeline and ensure a high-quality product is delivered on time. The proposal is a critical step in bringing new business to Passport and the Proposal Manager plays a huge role in our continued success.
