Electronic Capability Statement

In general, a Capabilities Statement tells potential clients who you are, what you do, and how you are different from your competitors. It serves as a snapshot of your company as well as a resume for your business. Capabilities statements are used to compare you with other vendors:

  • Many government agencies require that a Capabilities Statement be submitted with bids.
  • Similarly, prime contractors can require potential subcontractors to submit capabilities statements before doing business with them.

A Capabilities Statement informs your existing and potential customers about your business’ capabilities, including:

  • Who you are.
  • What you sell.
  • What core competencies you bring to the table. These should include specific information about:
    • Your products and services.
    • Your qualifications, credentials, and differentiators.
    • Your corporate data.

There are three standard types of Capabilities Statements:

  • A one page fold-over used to open doors and make introductions.
  • A brochure that could be a part of a Request For Proposal response.
  • A detailed presentation used for capabilities briefings.

When you add information about awards, certifications, and clients, the Capabilities Statement can:

  • Create a sense of trust.
  • Show maturity of your business.

For Treasury Electronic Capablity Statement, please make sure your specific Capability Statement closely matches with the opportunities found at the Treasury. Any general purpose capabilities statements can be used as supporting marketing materials.
