Bid Management

Bid Management Service UK

Why not take advantage of having the full invitation to 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

Writing 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 into your tender responses, which will win you more work.

✓ Design, layout & formatting

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.

✓ Proofreading

Proof Reading

No one can proofread their own work, our tender management service includes proofreading of the completed tender by an external and independent professional third party company as part of the service.

✓ Printing


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.

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. Contact us to discuss complete tender management for your next bid, undertaken by a team of professionals.

The team at Executive Compass came to our rescue when we were struggling with a lengthy and difficult PQQ and ITT. We contacted them at very short notice but nothing was too much trouble and they pulled all their resources together to ensure the deadline was met.

They provided us with a very professional service and the quality of work was excellent. Matthew and Charlotte really did make the process run very smoothly. Executive Compass come highly recommended.

Vicky Corcoran Arnold Electrical 23rd November 2017

We were fairly hesitant in spending a bit of budget on bid writing services, we researched lots of companies and Executive Compass always seemed to come out at the top of our searches. From our initial correspondence with the team our minds were put at ease and we knew straight away they were the company to use.

Sam was assigned to us as our writer and his knowledge of construction through previous clients is very high and his writing capabilities are second to none. It was easy to work with Sam and he always stuck to timescales which was very important to us as we had a tight deadline.

Not only will we be using Executive Compass again, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending their services to other companies looking to win more work
