How our Bid Review process works
We’ll have one of our highly experienced consultants review the ITT and your final draft submission, against the evaluation criteria and our ‘best-practice’ response methodology! Our methodology encompasses; language, structure, benefits, examples, evidence, unique selling points (USPs), omissions and differentiation. We also keep our 5 point plan in mind at all times!
For good, indifferent, or weak responses, we provide solutions, recommendations and comments for your live or historic submission.
Once we’ve completed this, we’ll arrange a face-to-face or phone session with your team to run through our enriched answers and the rationale as to why we have suggested the recommendations given.
The above knowledge-sharing approach allows for a sustainable approach to implementing lessons learned into future bids!
