Phoenics’s predecessor company (Alenia of USA) supported its foreign parent in pursuing large defense and electronic systems opportunities in the U.S.  Phoenics continued to perform this task exclusively for Alenia until 2011. Since then, we have widened our potential customer base in this business area to all companies including several non-U.S. firms from Europe and Asia. We provide these services on a fee-for-service basis. Phoenics performs all tasks necessary to insure that its clients compete on a level playing field with U.S. and non- U.S. competitors. It follows opportunities through the U.S. Government procurement cycle from a Request for Information (RFI) and Sources Sought phase, to the issuance of a Request for Proposal (RFP). Its services include proposal preparation and management to maximize our clients’ competitive posture.
