Contract Management

Client-focused

We will guide and support you in effectively sourcing, selecting and securing tenders. Whether it be for SMEs or Local Authorities, Birchwood Business Consultants has the knowledge, skills and experience needed to help you win contracts.

Guided by your aspirations and manner in which the tender process is to be delivered, we can create a robust tender that emphasises why you should be considered to be the contracting organisation as a preferred partner. We work with your organisation to understand your strengths and apply this in the required format to ensure the bid is completed efficiently, effectively and commercially. We will assist your organisation in order to organise, manage and deliver high quality submissions.

We write proposals and persuasive content on your behalf to help alleviate the stress and confusion associated with complex tenders. In addition to improving the calibre of your submission and strike rate, the time efficient practice allows you to focus your efforts on your core business.

Pre-Qualifying Questionnaires (PQQ’s)

Before submitting a tender, some clients would like you to complete a pre-qualification questionnaire before you are allowed to submit your tender.

As only the highest ranked businesses will be invited to tender, a coherent PQQ is essential. We will work with you to build an appropriate toolkit comprising of the below elements:

  • Finance
  • Legitimacy and status
  • Quality
  • Delivery
  • Environmental and sustainability
  • Equal opportunities
  • Health and safety
  • Insurances
  • Social Value

We can help you build in additional capacity within your organisation by writing supporting policies, CV’s and Case Studies that back up your business processes and approach.

Testimonials

Testimonial

Tenders are becoming ever more challenging for small business’ such as Alpha Health Services Limited – tenders are time consuming and a lot of attention to detail is required. Last year we were particularly keen to pursue one opportunity but we knew had limited time to apply to the task. Birchwood Business Consultants took on the whole project from start to finish and did such an excellent, professional, high quality job we were successful and were awarded the contract.

Mikes bid writing was meticulous and his suggestions to our team were all appropriate and helpful. I have no doubt that his contribution was significant and we will continue to use Mike Carter’s services in future bid writing because we value the cost-effective timely support.
