Bid Management

We take the stress out of the bid process by managing projects using a defined plan. Our nominated Manager will work with the bid team (subject matter experts, bid writers, graphic designer, etc.) to ensure your bid meets all the necessary requirements and is submitted on time. You will receive weekly reports detailing progress against the plan.

Bid and Tender Writing

Our team of Bid Writers have a wide range of experience across different sectors and industries. They will work with staff to gather the necessary information for each bid question and turn it into compelling narrative that scores as high as possible against evaluation criteria. We will build in reviews with you ahead of the bid being submitted.

Graphic Design

The use of imagery can often augment bids by conveying key information in a format this easy to understand and digest. Our graphic designer specialises in bidding and will work with you to create highly effective diagrams, front covers, dividers and other requirements.

Bid Reviews

We offer a number of different types of review to improve the quality of bids you have prepared yourself. We can look at previous submission and give general feedback. We can also score current submissions to confirm responses are compliant with the bid requirements and advise on how they can be improved against the evaluation criteria before submission.

Bid Templates

We offer clients a range of different template options in MS Word or MS Excel where they want to prepare their own bids. Templates are branded for your organisation and use your corporate colours and logos. We can event tailor templates for particular bids, for example, by creating the right headings for each question. All templates come with pre-set styles.

Formatting

For clients who have prepared their own bid response, we can format documents ahead of their submission. We ensure they are consistent in their appearance (e.g. fonts, paragraph numbering, etc.), check spelling and grammar, and the lay out is appealing to the evaluator’s eye.

Bid Production

Where clients require hard copies of their tender, we offer a number of different options depending the type of finish they required. Options include soft backed booklets, hard backed folders and boxed sets. WE use a firm of printers who will dispatch the printed bids to you directly or your client.

Training

We offer a range of different training packages for organisations new to bidding or who want to improve their win rate. We tailor each course to the business and sector and cover relevant legislation and best practice. We will teach your staff how to approach a bid, draft responses, consider requirements and avoid common pitfalls.

We also offer training for organisations wanting to run procurements of their own on how to implement UK procurement regulations or use best practice to get the best out of their competitions.
