Skyway Acquisition’s Capability Statement

Who we are

Skyway is a diverse team of 11 experienced former Contracting Officers who are passionate about helping people navigate GovCon. Government acquisition professionals rely on Skyway to bring context to GovCon to accelerate their acquisitions, level up their GovCon skills, and to make them more confident acquisition professionals.

What we do

Collectively, the Skyway team has Contracting Officer experience with every facet of federal acquisition. We harness that experience to mentor, coach, and advise our government clients. We also have helped hundreds of organizations navigate government contracts from the industry side. We bring more GovCon context to government acquisition professionals because we have deep and balanced insights from understanding both sides of GovCon. Our perspective and insights ensure government teams get the best acquisition outcomes.

Our services:

  • The Contacting Officer 2.0 Podcast, our mobile training resource than can be used for CLPs.
  • Skyway Central, our on-demand platform that includes relevant, actionable training, the Ask a CO Forum, and on demand content
  • GovCon mentorship, coaching and advice including one on one, acquisition problem-solving support.

Differentiators

Experience: Skyway’s mentorship and advice are based on experience, not theory. Skyway’s team members have an average of 21 years as Contracting Officers and Contract Specialists across different agencies and commands. PLUS, our team members have an average of 6 years training and advising industry on how to navigate GovCon. This allows us to bridge the context gap between government and industry because we understand both sides. We bring our government clients a neutral, balanced perspective on how industry understands GovCon.

Breadth of expertise: The Skyway team has direct experience across all facets of GovCon, including pre-award processes, post-award activities, buying products, services, construction, and R&D, as well as contingency contracting, and within every part of the FAR, DFARS and others. In short, if a Contracting Officer does it, someone on our team has done it. Skyway’s broad experience is a force multiplier for your team.

Current and Relevant: We are former Contracting Officers. However, we stay on top of current acquisition trends, policies and strategies by working deeply into the regulations and policies every day. We assess, analyze, and apply the concepts in the FAR regularly. This is how we keep our team sharp, and our clients informed. We stay current in GovCon because, well, we love this stuff…and our clients’ benefit! Our focus culminates in the This Week in Government Contracting (TWIGC), The Contracting Officer Podcast 2.0 and The Contracting Officer Point of View (COPOV) sessions.

Results: Acquisition professionals leverage the Skyway team to improve their market research before award, write more effective solicitations, manage better source selections, award cleaner contracts, manage contracts more efficiently, and have more effective and balanced interactions with contractors after award – all with the focus of getting better results for their government customer (the end user).
