PQQ Writing Services

PQQ Writing Services

When writing a PQQ (pre-qualification questionnaire) or standard selection questionnaire, the purpose is to persuade the reader you have the prerequisite experience, knowledge and capability to undertake the work you are bidding for.

The PQQ is sometimes referred to as an SSQ. For more information on the standard selection questionnaire (SSQ) please see our service page.

If you can submit a successful PQQ you will be shortlisted and progress to the next stage of the bid process, the invitation to tender (ITT). Our Professional PQQ Writers can help you every step of the way.

PQQ Writing Services

Getting past the PQQ process stage is about three key things:

PQQ Completion

Never underestimate the importance of the latter. We have undertaken independent research which clearly shows that the most common reason companies fail to progress to the next stage is by not demonstrating experience and capability. In a PQQ, you show this through your case studies, organisational charts and CVs. So yes, those tired charts that you have been including in your submission are used to measure your organisational capacity and capability to deliver the contract. Make sure they reflect your full capability.

Although marks from the PQQ are not carried forward to the ITT, our research shows that firms who come first or second at PQQ stage usually win the tender. This is due to their approach and general competence when it comes to tendering. What does it mean for you? If you go through to tender stage in fifth place, it means your chances of being successful are diminished. Why? It is simply because your approach to bid and tender writing will be assessed as being similar to that of your approach to PQQ writing — meaning you will come fifth!

We can show you how to score in the top three when completing a PQQ, and how to translate that success into tender writing and winning the contract. Winning is our focus and we will do all we can to ensure your success.

Our PQQ Service

Your pre-qualification questionnaire needs to be of the highest standard if you are going to be shortlisted to submit a tender document.

Many companies return to us time and time again to complete pre-qualification questionnaires on their behalf because of our service promises and customer care:

Best price

We provide competitive and cost-effective alternatives to completing PQQs in-house. All our quotations are based on the volume of work and level of support that you require.

Highest quality

Our ISO 9001:2015 quality assurance systems are among the best available, so you can be assured that the service you are receiving is of the highest standard and quality.

All submissions are reviewed internally

These are proofread by an independent proofreader, which is included in the cost.

Fastest turnaround

We have a specialist team of directly-employed bid writers who can write for any industry and who can complete your submission as quickly as possible without compromising on quality.

We do not use freelance staff

You don’t have to worry about quality management or missed deadlines. Your PQQ is not completed around other competing priorities. All writers work to a strict writing plan and keep you informed of progress throughout the whole process.

We directly employ all our staff

So you will have the same writer for each submission we complete for you. Over time this reduces cost and improves win rates.

Free formatting and template design (where required)

Formatting and design can have a big impact on your success at PQQ stage, and we provide all formatting and template design services free of charge.

General procurement advice is provided free of charge

Previously we have helped companies to make informed decisions around a range of problematic issues, for example, analysis of the cost benefit of implementing ISO quality management systems or the impact poor accounts can have on your submission.

How We Can Help

Your company can benefit from our pre-qualification questionnaire writing service by receiving a submission that has been completed to the highest standard and that ensures you comply with all the requirements outlined in the document. You are in good hands, as our writers have completed thousands of successful bids and know exactly what the contracting authority is looking for. This means that you can win new business, gain market share and increase your profits.

We like our clients to win work, so we will not take on your project if we do not believe you have a good chance of winning. We will help you make a well-informed ‘bid or no bid’ decision, based on your company’s current position and the questions outlined in the pre-qualification questionnaire. This way your money is not wasted if you do not have a realistic chance of securing the contract.

We offer PQQ training courses to ensure your business is on the right target, for more help on PQQ writing please see our PQQ Help Resource.
