Bid Management Services

Bid Management Services

Our full bid management service provides a comprehensive solution to suit your business needs. Customised for your business and project needs, our approach is fast, flexible and effective to manage your bid and tender from start to finish.

Bid Management

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

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 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 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 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.

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 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 we are 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 and expansion is through competitive tendering. It’s important to have an understanding of bid and contract management and how to beat the competition to gain winning tenders.

Recent client testimonials

Harris Solicitors logo

Executive Compass® come highly recommended. We requested their services at very short notice and the team helped us with their expertise in the bid writing process for our new crime duty provider contract. Without the team we could not have achieved a successful tender. They worked tirelessly to meet our tight deadline and had staff available over the bank holiday weekend to ensure the work was done and that our submission stood out from the remainder of the bidding firms. A great service provided and a job very well done!

Real Life Options

Real Life Options have enjoyed a successful business partnership with Executive Compass® for the past 18 months. During that time we have engaged the services of Neil, John and the team on numerous occasions, several of them at very short notice; on each and every occasion our experience has been positive.

The tenders that have been completed for us have been to an exceptional standard and always delivered prior to agreed timescales. These factors alone would have been enough for us to continue our partnership with Executive Compass®, but the service offered is so much more.

You approach Neil with a major headache caused by the daunting prospect of writing 20,000 words and within no time at all you are reassured and a huge weight is lifted from your shoulders. This is in no small part down to the professionalism of everyone at Executive Compass®; but what really struck us as unique was their desire to really understand the ethos of our organisation and the fact that that they genuinely cared about the sustainable development of our organisation.

We would, without reservation recommend Neil and his team to everyone who was looking for dedicated professional business advice and support.
