What is a Capability Statement?

A Capability Statement is a short document that introduces your company's products and services to an agency, to a prime contractor, or to a potential teaming partner.

At a glance the reader can see your company's qualifications, the products/services you are offering, and any special licenses or certifications you might have.

The document should be no more than 1 or 2 pages. Use bullet points to make it easier to read. Incorporate your company's logo, brand and colors if possible.

Your Capability Statement should include:
  • The products or services you are offering. (Core Competency)
  • Your experience in this field. (Past Performance)
  • Why your Company is different. (Differentiators)
  • CAGE; DUNS; GSA; CCR; ORCA; NAICS; certifications (8(a); veteran-owned, MBE, WBE); security clearances.
  • Company address; email; and point of contact.
  • History
  • Your Staff
  • Your Equipment or Resources: Specialized equipment or resources that enhance your product (s) or service (s).
  • Where to find you
  • References
Next week I will blog about important changes to CCR and ORCA.
