Tendering Insights

The tendering process ? The tendering process ? Tendering for a contract Once you've found a contract you might want to bid for, read it carefully to decide whether your business can do the work. If you've got any questions about the contract, you can contact the organisation for more information.

Before you bid, you may have to send an 'expression of interest'. This is an initial stage of the tendering process that helps buyers to see who's interested in bidding and draw up a short-list of possible suppliers. You may be asked for information about your finances and experience, or references from previous clients. If you're put on the short-list, you'll get an 'Invitation to Tender' (ITT) or a contract notice inviting you to bid for the contract.

The contract notice and bid documents will explain what you need to do to submit your tender. Submit your tender with all the required information before the deadline. The price you offer in a tender will be binding if your bid is successful. Yes i know you that already !

Tender Support

Do you want help with winning tenders, bids or proposals to win contracts?
These come in many forms, such as PQQs (pre-qualification questionnaires), ITTs (invitations to tender), RFQs (requests for quotation), RFIs (requests for information), RFPs (requests for proposal) etc? High value contracts can be very attractive but dealing with corporate, government & council tenders, PQQs, RFPs etc can be confusing, time-consuming and off-putting.

All have to be project managed within tight deadlines!
We will work with you to coordinate this process and meet the deadlines. We will ensure that the best possible tender response is submitted. We can either help create the content for the entire document, including the commercial elements, or work with content you provide, making sure that is complete and pitched persuasively. Whatever our involvement we will ensure that the tender document scores as highly as possible when reveiwed, thereby giving you the best chance of moving onto the next stage of the bid process - probably a presentation!( For involved contacts this will involve a fee).

As well as helping with the preparation of your tender we can help with:
The Presentation Proposals and documentation other than for formal tenders Coaching in any aspect of selling (including negotiation)
