Completing PQQs and tenders in-house can present problems when it comes to the tender review stage. You are often too close and too involved with the submission to be able to carry out a review effectively, and you may miss vital elements and important information.
Our review service of your completed PQQ or tender is intended for those who do not require our bid and tender writing services, but who would like an additional pair of eyes, and an external point of view to make sure the submission is of the highest quality.
Our PQQ & Tender Review Service Includes:
- Fully marked-up documents, with comments and suggested amendments
- A compliance check
- Identifying areas for improvement
- Detailed review of each response with constructive criticism
- Appraisal of case studies and contract examples
- Advice on presentation improvements
- Input from professional writers who have written and won hundreds of tenders
- Review of related policies and procedures
- Cover-to-cover proofreading (if requested)
Why Should Your Bid Be Reviewed Externally By a Professional?
Our review service is a cost-effective approach to take your PQQ or tender submission to the next level, whilst you still retain full control and management of the bid in-house. If it is a ‘must win’ bid for your company, or your first time bidding, getting a professional’s opinion and suggestions can mean the difference between a pass and fail.
It is very hard to critique your own work, especially in bid writing, as it is difficult to look at your own organisation from an external point of view to identify any points of weakness. Our bid writers’ knowledge and experience of the procurement process means we are able to identify areas you may have overlooked, and we know better than anyone exactly what the contracting authority is looking for. Usually companies have the correct information, but have simply not demonstrated it correctly — that is where we come in. We can advise you how to improve your PQQ or tender response and gain more marks, giving you a better chance of success.
How Does It Work?
Firstly, we will confirm a cost for the review, based on the expected word count of your completed submission — it takes a lot longer to review 15,000 words than it does 2,000 words! We will then agree a timescale for receiving your completed responses. Ideally this will be section-by-section, as soon as the responses are complete, so that any comments and suggestions can be taken on board when writing the remainder of your submission. We will ensure that all reviewed responses are returned to you with enough time to make any changes and discuss any issues with our writers ahead of the deadline.
Whether you are a small business completing your first PQQ or tender, or a larger company bidding for many contracts, our PQQ and tender review service can help you to improve your submissions and increase your success rate.
