What is GWAC NorthStar™?

GWAC NorthStar™ is software-as-a-service that automates the collection of opportunity announcements from your government GWAC or Multiple Award Contract (MAC) vehicle portals, those received by email, and those aggregated by third parties, processes these quickly (typically within hours) to score how well they fit your strengths and interests – using criteria that you configure – automatically distributes high scoring opportunities to interested parties in your company via a secure and private web portal, and collects user decisions on responding.

By performing these tedious tasks automatically, NorthStar enables you to spend your time and attention on pursuit strategies and developing more proposals. These proposals will obviously benefit from the added time you can spend on them since high scoring opportunities are generally detected on Day One after release, and not after days of languishing undiscovered in multiple portals or pipelines. Thus, GWAC NorthStar will contribute to improved win probability and bookings. And, because you will be able to quickly discern all highly relevant opportunities, you will be able to submit more proposals, or opportunities that best fit you, and therefore win more business and achieve a greater ROI on the contract vehicles you have won.

Additionally, you can tap Deep Water Point & Associates (DWPA) agency experts for insights into your best opportunities so that you respond with understanding of the context and preferences for the agency’s procurement.
