Often faced with increased requirements, shrinking budgets, and consolidation with the second- and the third-tier suppliers, Pantheon works with its Government customers to support efforts to understand the current health of critical sub-tier vendors. Pantheon takes a holistic approach to this analysis, including a review of current capacity constraints, future capacity constraints, workforce demographics, chokepoints, corporate succession planning, and business health. Ultimately, Pantheon supports (1) assessing the ability of sub-tier vendors to meet current and future demand signals, (2) evaluating the risk profile at a micro- and macro-level, and (3) developing risk mitigation strategies.
Pantheon maintains a Supplier Base Team experienced in review and analysis of proposals made to the Government. Each proposal is reviewed in detail, including a fact-finding visit. The team is experienced in a variety of proposal related analysis including Truth In Negotiations Act (TINA) requirements, commercial items, and overhead rates reviews. Pantheon generates a customized dynamic pricing model for each proposal that allows the customer to update and change the position as needed, which allows for quick updates in a negotiations situation. Pantheon also has extensive experience in supporting clients during contract negotiations.
