ASHDAN CONSULTING: BID & TENDER MANAGEMENT SERVICES INCLUDE:
We have extensive experience in all aspects of preparing accurate and competitive tenders; from reviewing the Contract and client amendments, to ensuring that the best commercially viable bid is submitted in line with you fully understanding your contractual obligations.
An often under-used aspect of tendering, a good bid management process should be viewed as conducting the orchestra, ensuring that all other tendering activities such as planning and estimating are performing effectively and in conjunction with each other. Our extensive experience of Bid Management means that we are able to assist you by fulfilling the role throughout the tendering process.
Proposals & Tender Writing
Otherwise excellent bids are often let down by lack-lustre presentation and content which fails to let the client know that the contractor understands and can address his requirements. Ashdan Consulting’s experienced staff have been recognised as submitting Tender Documentation and Pre-Qualification Questionnaires that significantly exceed the quality of those submitted by competitors.
As part of our Bid Management and Tender Submission service we provide a bespoke bid writing service which utilises cutting edge graphic design. In addition, in-house experienced Proposal Writers ensure that your tender submissions stand out from the crowd.
For those other than the most experienced presenters or public speakers, making presentations at tender stage where performance can mean the difference between winning or losing a bid, can often be the most daunting of activities. We can help by using our significant tendering experience to work with you to make the process as comfortable as possible and ensure that those attending the presentation can perform at their best.
Many clients keep tendering contractors in competition right up to the last minute, and in particular during any post-tender negotiations. Knowing how to handle this process may mean the difference between success and failure, as often those contractors who are in pole position at Tender Submission lose during the post-tender negotiation period and thus fail to secure the work. Our experience of handling this process will help you identify the pitfalls and grasp success from the jaws of failure.
