ELECTRIC & NATURAL GAS
Electric & Natural Gas: We can scarcely imagine what life would be like without them, yet most people have no idea how they actually work or what is involved in putting them together – to say nothing of the administrative and regulatory procedures they require on the back end to keep their systems running. This is why it can be difficult for utility and service companies to find the help they need in writing proposals within these lines of business.
Proposals in the Electric and Natural Gas arena are complex by nature. They have to describe where a resource comes from, how it will be harnessed and controlled, how it will be monitored and made safe, and how it will be maintained over the long term – all within the constraints of financing, depreciation, supply and demand, and even esoteric factors such as political pressure or public opinion. For this reason, achieving the right balance between technicality and persuasion can mean the difference between bidding and winning.
In addition, achieving this balance means utility companies and providers often must work with numerous supporting agencies outside of their core capabilities. Some of these include:
- Financial Services companies
- Equipment manufacturers
- Insurance companies
- Judicial and Law Enforcement agencies
- Public Relations Firms
With this many interests in play, it’s no wonder that businesses in the Electric and Natural Gas industries find proposal writing a difficult hill to climb.
WHY CHOOSE US FOR YOUR ELECTRIC & NATURAL GAS PROPOSAL WRITING??
SAS’s project experience includes working directly with Natural Gas and Electrical systems providers. Not only are we familiar with how the technologies meet the respective need in each industry, we have an intimate knowledge of how pricing for systems implementation and maintenance tie into the inevitable depreciation of the delivery systems.
We have firsthand knowledge of the Operations and Maintenance involved in sustaining Electrical and Gas systems, down to a granular level – from the different types of switches used in a distribution network to how trench depth and soil condition affects the different types of insulation used on a buried cable.

PROVEN SUCCESS IN THE CONSTRUCTION & A/E INDUSTRY
$16+ Billion Won For Our Proposal Clients
We’ve won in each of these categories:
– Telecommunications, Wireless, and Cable
– Major Utility (Electric / Natural Gas)
Our most salient win in this area comes from our work with the City of San Antonio, Texas, where we secured a 50-year lease for the privatization of Electric and Gas systems for Joint Base San Antonio. Our work in this account will help secure the availability of robust, reliable power for tens of thousands of people for decades to come.
Of particular note is the fact that SAS professionals were not formally trained in this area of specialization, but rather used their skills in learning from our customers in order to assist them.
This is the method we use in all of our contracts: we ask questions and leverage a true interest in our customers’ operations to ramp up our understanding and ensure we are able to define exactly what it is they do. This is both a skill and a defining feature of SAS project managers, regardless of industry.
Every solicitation is different and requires different resources, but we are happy to discuss your project with you for free!
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING:
The level of detail and understanding that went into the development of both the Preasha, LLC. logo and our company website were outstanding. Finding a company that is easy to work with and responds quickly to any correspondence is a great tool to have in our business development toolbox.
I highly recommend them for any development work.

Karen got the call late yesterday afternoon: Odyssey has been awarded the Embry Riddle contract, 100%. We are thrilled, and cannot thank you enough for your skill and professionalism in putting the bid proposal together for us.
Partner & Lead Attorney | Odyssey Travel
I received my copy of the proposal for MDA this morning. This is the most “outstanding” proposal one could ever hope for. Please pass on my admiration for a super super job well done to all that participated. As always, we are always hopeful for a winning proposal, that said, even if we don’t win the experience of working with Sales consulting has been an eye-popping experience for SkyTech and I am one happy customer.
President & CEO | Skytech Security
I had a great time working with you. I have to admit, I was very nervous about how this one was going to shake out. I think it was flawless and you put a great looking proposal together. I went through it again this morning just to read it once again. The pictures, charts, and layout are like nothing I have seen and hope the military review board appreciates your hard work. I would really like to land a piece of the pie on this MATOC and add that feather to my hat.
Managing Partner | Hasco LLC
We’ve been awarded the Taji DDCO Warehouse contract. This has been a super win for us and as we look forward to hopefully a couple more awards, it will help us grow to where we want to be in the next year. So thanks very much for the hard work on this one and all the proposals we’ve done together.
Director of Contracting | Ain Azmer
David and Brian have been great thus far, great service and support, but I wanted to emphasize Ben White’s participation/performance. Since becoming involved, Ben has provided exceptional clarity, guidance, and leadership throughout this process. I feel confident in our proposal, due in large part, to Ben’s exceptional attention to detail, organization skills, and recommendations.
In this fast-paced, stressful, and demanding business we are in, it is often difficult to slow down and give recognition when it is due, and Peer-to-Peer accolades are rare. You are fortunate to have Ben White on your team. From myself and ORSA, I wanted to express that Ben has our utmost confidence, and reflects greatly on SAS now, and in the future.
Excellence is earned – it is not given – and Ben has earned it.
Business Development Executive | ORSA Technologies, LLC
Good morning gentlemen,
I wanted to say thank you for your assistance. Glad we captured it and look forward to winning more with you as part of my team.
Thank you again.

On behalf of the entire team at Infospectrum, I want to thank you and your team for timely support and guidance in getting a professional makeover to our proposal.
We learned a lot in this process and we feel confident of taking on similar challenges in the near future and count on your team’s professional support.

SAS has been out main go-to for RFP writing services for several years now. They took the initiative with our in-house past performance library and have literally become an extension of our marketing team – we have a true partnership.
Having worked with Chris Antosiak more recently, I can speak to his construction industry knowledge and ability to streamline the RFP process while also creating an unrestricted pipeline of communication and information.
Operations Manager | Cornerstone Contracting, Inc.
We worked with SAS (Christopher Antosiak) to support our complex USACE MATOC contract. Our proposal consisted of 2 very detailed volumes and a construction schedule which Christopher prepared. Christopher was highly dependable and very knowledgeable in federal proposal writing and construction.
His approach, process and procedures, and overall knowledge helped us to prepare a technical proposal that went above and beyond to meet the solicitation requirements. We would recommend SAS (Christopher Antosiak) to any firm bidding on complex Federal projects, MATOC contracts, and complex construction contracts which require keen attention to detail and a high degree of technical knowledge to win.
Vice President & Project Manager | AllTech Engineering Corp
I use SAS to support our complex Heavy Civil Construction project proposals; especially those for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. They are highly dependable and very knowledgeable in this domain. We enjoy the fact that we are working with the same team of people who know our business and capabilities. We also appreciate that they are always available.
Their approach has consistently reduced the time and effort needed to win projects, and their processes and technology significantly reduce the burden on our engineers and construction management personnel during the proposal process. I would recommend SAS to any firm bidding on complex Federal projects that require keen attention to detail and a high degree of technical knowledge to win.
