Compliance is critical in winning a contract.
Scion Analytics addresses this challenge from two directions to ensure compliance. We provide an application that helps you construct a Cross-Reference Compliance Matrix that also identifies orphan requirements.
Additionally, the second tool is the Gap Analysis report. that compares the requirement documents to your proposal. It identifies missing concepts in your proposal that are in the requirement documents.
This report also helps you see if you are addressing concept (topics) enough. For example, say your RFP reference “property” 540 times, but your proposal only addresses “property” 2 times, you may have not written enough about “property”.
The Gap Analysis report also helps you ensure that your proposal is using the same terms (concepts) as your RFP source (client).
