"seamlessly moving from capture to programme start-up"
Winning a bid presents new and critical challenges which if not planned for during the capture phase is the most common reason for a programme start-up/transition failing. This has can long term impact to future awards, companies reputation and programme execution margins.
Transition is unpredictable and often a prolonged phase while negotiations and contract details are finalized after award. Key issues that need to be mitigated during the capture phase are:
Sufficient funding allocated as part of the business case to proceed with start-up activities
Retaining core capture team to maintain critical data and knowledge
Establish clear transition agreements with partners and subcontractors
Work risk mitigations early during the down time between award and start-up
