The hard truth about government contracting is that unsolicited proposals can get lost among thousands of others on a digital portal. Those that make it through are too often from companies that have cracked the code on federal solicitations and know how to work the system.

We are working to change that.


We align stakeholders and secure funding from the start. So you can be sure your ideas are reviewed directly by Army decision makers with immediate needs and real budgets


Each opportunity through AAL is announced on our social channels and here, on our website, so you don't have to dig through confusing government websites to find the right thing.


Our submission process is streamlined to focus on content over form. That creates a level playing field for companies that don't have dedicated BD teams or proposal writers.

If you're interested in working with us, sign up to receive more information on specific opportunities when they go live.


For every SPARTN topic, you'll typically have 28 days to ask questions before the application window opens, and then up to 28 days to apply. Take advantage of these resources to get smart and get ready to apply.
