How do you manage joint bid response submissions? What do you need from us?
In the main, there are two options:
Option 1: Fully outsourced. We draft responses based on interviews with the client (their management, sales and operations staff). We reutilise the client’s website content, product information and previous tender responses to inform the bid. We manage the bid and ensure that it is submitted by the deadline. Clients are particularly fond of this approach; it is easy, dependable and highly time-efficient.
Option 2: Editing / Copywriting only. For this option the client drafts the responses, which we then review, edit (extensively, if necessary) and polish. We predominantly employ a “remote support” model with our clients. We use modern technology (video, web conferencing, online chats and Dropbox) to exchange information and ideas with our clients.
Why should we use you?
We make public tender procurements easy.
We spare no effort to ensure that we deliver an exceptional and compelling tender response.
Your tender response scores higher; we help you understand how to make your responses fully compliant, to boost scores.
We align our approach with your resources; depending on the complexity of your service portfolio, you can outsource the complete bid submission to us. Alternatively, we can become a trusted party providing you with an additional bid resource.
Will you share our risk with us? Is your support something you expect us to pay for up front?
We share the risk. We charge an initial fee when you successfully submit your tender and then get paid a commission when you win the tender.
