Strategies to win
Strategies we employ to help you win include:
- Focusing on being local. To win any government and even private industry tender, it is important to focus on being local and supporting the local community. You can do this by:
- Talking about hiring locals and providing key figures on the number of locals that work for you or that you intend to hire.
- Provide a list of, and detail, your local suppliers. Make sure that you demonstrate you will use local suppliers, and provide a clear indication of what materials and equipment you propose to purchase from them.
- Base yourself locally. Even if you are not from the local area for which you are tendering, it is important to demonstrate the downstream economic benefits of the contract will flow through to the local community. If it is a large contract, talk about potentially opening an office in the local area.
- Talk about your specialist team and equipment. If you have specialist equipment that enables you to do your job more efficiently or to a higher quality standard, you should detail this in your tender response. The reader will be reassured by the fact that you have company owned equipment and will be a reliable service provider. Furthermore, you need to clearly outline the experience and capability of your team. This means providing details of similar jobs you have completed in the past as well as your qualifications and expertise. Key person risk is often a concern for clients, so put forward a solid team of personnel who can do the job.
- Ensure you comply – Create a checklist of the tender requirements. Once you have done that, review your submission to ensure you comply with all the requirements. This is critical as a non-compliance can result in you being disqualified from the tender process. You need to ensure you have the appropriate insurance and other requirements in place including supporting documentation to comply with the response requirements.
