Have you ever found a tender for potential work for your business and then ignored it as you have neither the skills or time to complete it? Are you terrified by the amount of questions and work required for an uncertain outcome? Or have you submitted tenders for work that you never seem to be able to win? Public sector contracts in particular work within the competitive tendering framework and you have to be in it to win it!
External bid writers are available and can complete this work for you – but they can be very expensive! The cost of writing and submitting a tender can only be recouped by the winning bidder (out of the work they have won), so spending large amounts on an uncertain outcome can be a gamble.
This course will take you through every stage of the bidding process, from the identification of opportunities through to contract award. It’s suitable for individuals who wish to pursue tender writing as a career, as a consultant or in-house. It’s equally suitable for organisations who wish to upskill their sales and marketing team to enable them to grab opportunities when they see them and to submit winning bids.
