The CDAP Advisor’s Application Process

If you would like to apply for the grants here are the steps to prepare your application so you get quick approval. The process is straightforward but you have to submit certain documents that are going to heavily impact your chances of getting accepted, or the time it takes you to get in the marketplace and be able to service clients.

What Projects and Services Are Eligible for the Grants

There are certain clients who are eligible for the grants that are stated. However, the scope of planning and what you can perform for the clients are not that strictly defined. There are mandatory elements of the plan but there is wide room for interpretation of what you can do. In this video, we go through the limitations of scope and how to creatively scope and deliver these services to be able to not only be compliant with the plans but serve your client’s needs.

6 Mistakes That Get Your CDAP Advisor Application Rejected

We analyzed the main mistakes people make with their CDAP Digital Advisor submission that turn officials off and get their applications rejected, even though they are fully capable of the required work. Do not worry; even if you’ve submitted your application you can send additional materials and fix things quickly so you get accepted.

Three major benefits for your service business to become an approved digital advisor

Hire and Retain Talent

 

As the funding is available for 4 years, and accessible for even smaller clients. You are able to hire and train employees based on the government's money with literally zero risk.

The $15,000 grant will give about 50 hours of work per advisor at a $300 hourly rate.

One advisor can generate about 45,000 planning services for your clients per month at scale.

Farm Digital Projects

 

The digital adoption planning services are only one part of the equation. You are able to win implementation deals after the plans are done.

Implement online marketing programs, applications, IT Infrastructure modernization, cybersecurity or any other digital tool implementation that your company can perform.

Your clients are happy, your team is happy your bottom line is happy.

Get in Front of Prospects

 

Not every service provider will be able to become an approved advisor to render these services. That means it's the single best opportunity to get in front of potential clients.

You can bring them $15,000, deliver a solid Digital Strategy, and demonstrate your superiority to win more business easier.

It's a two-edged sword... you missing out on the opportunity opens the door for your competition to serve your clients with the grants.

CDAP Assessment Module to build plans super fast

Unlike the DNA (Digital Needs Assessment) clients take before their grants are approved, you need very detailed assessments to generate the plans based on templated recommendations. This way you are not only able to assess the client but immediately have a list of deliverables you can recommend for the plans. You can choose from a general assessment or detailed Marketing, Sales, Operation, Finance, Application, Cybersecurity or IT Infrastructure Assessments. 

CDAP Assessment Module
 

CDAP Digital Solution Plan Module for selecting and planning digital solutions

For the CDAP Digital Adoption plans you are required to select certain applications and create Digital Solution Plans. This module allows you not only to have a tool for solution selection but to create a scope statement, timeline plan and execution plan for those projects that will be delivered after the plans are done. This way you can find solution providers for your clients or help them implement the projects in the plans.

CDAP Digital Roadmap and Budget Module for Compliance

As a Digital Advisor, it's mandatory to provide the clients with a digital roadmap. With this module, you'll not only be compliant but you can provide a living and breathing roadmap to the client with budgets, detailed project scopes, responsible persons and a timeline with status.

It helps build up not only implementation revenues after the planning is submitted but monthly recurring revenues to keep the plans updated and make sure all projects are moving forward.
