When we last blogged on ACES, we focused on the basics of what ACES is. No doubt you’ve spent quality time reviewing our blog and a plethora of USAID materials to either get smart on ACES or to simply revisit your long-lost friend of an opportunity (remember DRAGON?

Success in the federal market isn’t what it used to be. Over the last 10 years, we’ve all witnessed an extraordinary amount of business opportunities. Those days are over. Now is the time that will separate the businesses with real value and real smarts from those that “got lucky.” Succeeding – not just surviving – will be achieved through well-developed strategies, thoughtful and thorough market research and analysis, effective competitive intelligence, creative communications, and, above all, a laser-like focus on what you do best
