At Bidology, we are passionate about helping SMEs win business and grow, by working with them to submit high-quality tender responses. For smaller companies, navigating the world of responding to Private and Public sector tenders can be daunting. Understanding the bid process and writing compliant, compelling text takes skill, knowledge and experience.
Bidology are experts in writing winning bids and specialise in responding to:
Prequalification Questionnaires (PQQs) – PQQs precede ITTs and are used by procurers to shortlist suppliers to invite to tender.
Invitation to Tenders (ITTs) – a formal document issued to organisations inviting them to tender. The ITT details project / service requirements and evaluation guidelines.
Expression of Interest (EOI) – used by procurers to gauge interest in tendering. EOIs typically request information that demonstrates the respondent’s ability to perform a contract
Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) – a procurement tool used by Public Sector. Although DPS has similarities to electronic framework agreements, suppliers can apply to join at any time.
As the founder of Bidology, I am proud of what we stand for and what we have achieved. At Bidology, our mission is to help our customers win business and grow. This is when we are at our best and it is why we work hard to pursue excellence and deliver exceptional quality in everything we do.Emma Smallwood
What is bid quality?
When it comes to submitting a winning response, bid quality is essential for success.
- Is your response compliant?
- Have you answered every question?
- Is your response customer-focussed?
- Have you evidenced your claims and showcased your achievements using case studies and customer testimonials?
- Does response design enhance key messages and assist readability?
- Are your win themes clear?
- Is your response written in one voice?
- Have you proofread your response checking for spelling, grammar and consistency?
If you can answer yes to all of these questions, your tender response will be easier for evaluators to assess, it will have an improved chance of a higher evaluation score and, ultimately, winning.
