Capability Statement

A CAPABILITY STATEMENT is a business document that is used to highlight a business's capabilities through opportunities for marketing, promotion, networking, introduction, and contracting.  It gives businesses the opportunity to present a high-level overview of their company, services, and products.  When written effectively, a capability statement could open doors to contracting opportunities and will differentiate your business from your competitor(s), helping to reinforce your brand, proposition, and competitive advantage for existing and potential customers. 

A few templates are listed below to provide ideas for formatting. Use your due diligence in using resources and/or templates online or through the business community.  Search online for capability statements for your industry/profession/trade to view some examples, to help with ideas.

Check spelling and grammar!  Have someone give feedback and proof-read your document before sharing with current or potential customers. It is worth the time and effort to make sure it's done right!
