What is a Capability Statement?

A capability statement is a concise document of your business’s core competencies and is a critical tool in government contracting, no matter what size company you represent. In simple terms, it’s a snapshot of your company that serves as a resume for your business.  

The purpose of a capability statement is to convey to potential clients who you are, what you do, and how you are different from your competitors. Do it well, and your business could be on the way to securing a contract with the largest purchase of goods and services in the world.

A Capabilities Statement should be:

  • Brief (only 1 or 2 pages), to the point, and specifically related to the individual agency’s needs.
  • Visually interesting with a graphic identity similar to your company’s brand and logo.
  • A searchable document that can be easily changed and sent as a PDF file.

Capability Statement Format & Things to Include

A well-written capability statement should be to the point and directly related to the federal agency you are hoping to do business with. Meaning, it should change from agency to agency and never say the same thing twice. 

In most cases, the formatting of a capability statement is straightforward, but it can be quite challenging to stand out amongst the crowd. There are some critical areas that every capability statement should highlight, including: 

  • Core Competencies
  • Differentiators
  • Past Performance
  • Company Data
  • Contact Information

Allow GSE to Help You Draft the Perfect Capability Statement

Whether you’re a small or large business, you will need a strong capability statement to work with the government. Federal, state, and local agencies require companies to submit a capability statement with their bids for contracts. 

The statements often work as a way to narrow down potential contractors. That’s why it’s so crucial to make it count.
