What is Bid Management?
Our comprehensive bid management service works as a trusted extension of your current business. It’s a popular solution for those new to bid applications and organisations who don’t have an existing in-house team to dedicate the time and expertise to creating winning bid submissions.
Our holistic, personalised approach means that we take on responsibility for the entire process.
So, in addition to developing the strategy, key themes, storyboarding and bid documentation which provide the cornerstone to a successful submission, we also manage the core internal processes which are integral to the smooth running of the project. From data gathering to team co-ordination, stakeholder management to supervision and governance, we take care of every aspect using our vast project management experience.
Whilst we work efficiently and independently, we maintain regular communications throughout the project. Our open and honest dialogue, combined with access to our unique bid portal technology, means that whilst we manage the bid production and submission process, you’re always in control.
What is our Bid Management Process?
1. Client Engagement
We’ll review tender documents and provide a quote. A Lead Bid Writer will be allocated and introduced to you. They will be your direct contact point throughout the process.
2. Bid Writing and Management
We’ll start with a bid plan and project meeting with you. A needs analysis will be performed and actions agreed. We’ll begin the process of storyboarding, generating winning themes and USPs. We’ll effectively co-ordinate your internal teams and manage internal stakeholders to ensure that the information needed to create a successful bid is secured. Throughout the entirety of the project we’ll take care of all governance aspects, providing peace of mind. Bid writing will commence and first draft is produced.
3. Review and Quality Assurance
Once written, we’ll perform a full strategic Director-led review in-house during which time we’ll challenge ourselves to make further improvements. The bid will be further developed and enhanced until it satisfies our quality assurance measures, and then sent to you for approval.
4. Submission and Debrief
Once all parties are satisfied with the content of the bid, the bid will be signed off. We can support with upload and submission if required. A debrief will be scheduled.
