Bid Management Service UK
Why not take advantage of having the full tender process managed by us on your behalf? We offer a bid management service to complete the whole bid process for you and undertake all tasks including:
✓ Writing & capture planning
Have you identified your win theme and what your key differentiators are? If not, we can help you to leverage even the smallest advantage into a contract-winning idea. All companies need an edge. So, whether you are a small independent company or a blue chip PLC, we can help you to build a persuasive and compelling narrative which will win you more work.
✓ Design, layout & formatting
The move to e-tendering has not and will not completely remove the ability to add flair to your submission. Even the use of white space, bullets and standardised indents and font can make a difference in terms of readability, which should not be overlooked. Our bid writers take all of this into account when presenting your final draft.
No one can proofread their own work, our tender management service includes proofreading by an external and independent professional third party company as part of the service.
The need for printing has significantly reduced with the move to e-procurement. However, many private sector bids still request a hard copy and this is something we can arrange for you.
Your Bid, Your Choice
You remain in control of the final version via structured meetings, reviews and the use of our bespoke bid management process. We manage some bids which can last up to nine months and others that only last a few days.
Regardless of size, scope or complexity we apply our proven successful process to manage the bid and help to maximise your chances of winning another contract. Our bid support service is provided either on site or remotely, or by using a blended approach of embedded staff with remote support from our office. We also provide interim bid managers for longer term projects like process improvement or more general management consultancy.

How We Can Help
We specialise in managing the full bid management process for companies across all industries. For each new client we create a unique package that allows us to gain an insight into your business in order to produce the best quality submission.
Depending on the work required we will either work remotely or on your site. Smaller submissions can be managed via telephone and email contact, whereas larger pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQs) and tenders require on-site working, or at least a site visit.
For on-going clients, we always make the effort to meet in person and conduct interviews with service and subject specialists. This way, your tender writer is able to create a full bid management library to aid the completion of future submissions.
Many companies approach us before a contract is even released, which allows us to complete a full, bid ready audit. This ultimately saves time and improves bid quality when the tender is released.
Bid & Contract Management
For many companies the key to new business development and expansion is through competitive tendering in the public sector. It’s important to have an understanding of bid and contract management and how to beat the competition to gain winning tenders.
