Are you bid ready? Part 1

If you haven’t written a bid application before, it can seem overwhelming. My suggestions is that you look into opportunities when you have the time to gather the information, which I know is not always viable in business. But the more prepared you can be, the better.

Often, the first time someone writes a bid, they then see how much information they need from a range of sources. This can lead to a decision not to bid, as you do not have the required insurance or required level of cover/turnover etc. Or it leads to a less than satisfactory document that you have worked very hard on, which will not be successful as you have not met the criteria, but thought you’d give it a go anyway. The worst of it is, you could have used all that valuable time elsewhere.

Which again, is why I suggest looking at what is needed from the tendering stages when you are not going to apply. This will help you consider what you need and start the conversation about what you want to apply for, and what help you need from Ask the Chameleon!
