What are tender consultants and how can they help you?

Tender consultants (also known as bid consultants), can help you and your business with your tendering processes. By working with a tender consultant, you can rest assured that the bid process will be smooth sailing. Tender consultants are trained professionals, whose sole purpose is to write bid proposals to achieve success. So, whilst your focus can be divided across numerous business needs, a tender consultant focuses solely on the tender process.

Here is a breakdown of why working with a tender consultant can be beneficial:

A tender consultant has industry knowledge

A tender consultant works on ensuring they are familiar with their client’s industry. Meaning they know exactly what is expected when it comes to the bid proposal, offering expert advice. Here at Hudson Succeed, our team of Bid Writers have knowledge that spans multiple industries. Meaning they’re well equipped to help with a range of bid proposals.

Tender consultants are experts in their field of writing

Tender consultants’ expertise in writing is of the highest level. Our Bid Writers have written hundreds of bids. Therefore, they have perfected their writing skills to create high-quality proposals. So, you can rest assured you are getting nothing but the best.

Communication is second to none

A tender consultant excels at all things verbal – making for excellent navigators in complex bid proposals. They clearly and effectively communicate why a client should be awarded the contract. Showcasing your business to the buyer.

Tender consultants have controlled project management abilities

You’re probably familiar with how the tender process works, and how complex and long-winded it can be. A tender consultant consistently meets deadlines, without sacrificing quality. Managing their workload and ensuring all the required information has been gathered.

How can a government tender consultant help you?

Are you looking to specifically win government tenders? Then bringing in a tender consultant for support will help improve your win rate.

You may be thinking you don’t need the help. However, when it comes to government tenders, the better your response is, the more likely you are to see results. Here are three reasons why you should consider working with a government tender consultant:

They understand the complexity a government contract can bring

Due to the nature of tenders, there is an added complexity of regulations and legalities that need to be considered and followed. Without adhering to certain regulations, you may not even make the shortlist. A government tender consultant has first-hand expert knowledge when dealing with government contracts. They understand what is needed and are dedicated to writing a winning response.

A government tender consultant understands the importance of social value

Social value is a major component when it comes to government contracts. A government tender consultant understands this and ensures it is well established within the tender response. They will work with you and how you will effectively tackle economic, environmental, and social issues.

A government tender consultant understands the MEAT

If you aren’t aware of this, government contracts are always awarded to suppliers who showcase the MEAT. This stands for the Most Economically Advantageous Tender. What this means is, the buyer is evaluating tender submissions based on those who provide the most value for money. Thus, rewarding them the contract. Because of the nature of tenders, each can be different from the next. Working with a government tender consultant can be the difference between winning and losing a tender. A government tender consultant understands what the buyer is asking, what the specifications are and how to best respond. Increasing your chances of being successful.

Let’s Summarise

By now you will be more than familiar with how a tender consultant can help you. Let’s recap why working with a tender consultant can be beneficial for increasing your win rate.
