Our Approach

We help small businesses with Federal Contracting goals focusing on the 5Ps of Business Growth:

Prospects, Pursuits, Proposals, Processes, and Performance.


  • Prospects

    Prospect & Pipeline - build an active pipeline of opportunities which align to your core capabilities. 

  • Pursuits

    Partner, Pursue, & Position - perform the necessary preliminary work to increase win position. 

  • Proposals

    Use our AMPD! process to seamlessly propose your solutions to the requirements.

  • Processes

    Develop and implement strong technical, management, operations, and oversight processes using quality frameworks such as CMMI and ISO and the CMMC cybersecurity framework.

  • Performance

    Manage performance and customer satisfaction through oversight activities. A satisfied customer is a returning customer.

After working with many small businesses, the one thing that I discovered that's crucial to their success is -  proposal development infrastructure.  It seems start-up companies and companies that receive the 8a certification are instructed to go win work.  There is a strong disconnect in communicating the how. CMC serves as a bridge to address this disconnect with our AMPD! framework, products, & services.
