Whatever your role is within your organisation, would you be prepared to finalise your organisation’s profit and loss statement and sign off on the company tax return?
No! Unless you are a qualified accountant, you wouldn’t even think about it. Just as accounting is best left to the professionals, so is tender writing and bid management.
Knowing what it takes to win is a science requiring skill and experience … a science that qualified bid managers undertake to maximise your chance of winning.
Selecting and outsourcing to a reputable proposal agency, ensures that your tender will be developed and administered to meet the precise requirements of the bid and convey excellence as well as innovation.
Compliance is ‘mission critical’. Responsiveness, coupled with planning and strategic awareness, is essential in addition to the standard preparation of the tender deliverables.
To be successful, you need to consider:
- creating strategic partnerships
- indigenous engagement
- payment terms
- quality, environmental and safety considerations
- risk mitigation strategies
- through life support
- extended warranty
