Tenders and Bids

Finding suitable tenders, evaluating whether they are worthwhile and the often urgent pulling together of resources and bid teams. 

Public bodies must generally undertake a rigorous procurement exercise when commissioning external professional services through the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) process. In the private sector with an increasingly competitive market and where costs are critical, organisations are turning to complex procurement processes to drive value.

Cal Partners can assist in tracking down tender opportunities for even small organisations and evaluate whether they are realistic. With experience of the public sector Cal Partners can project manage the often time-consuming, urgent and complex tender process from the Pre- Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) phase through to the Invitation to Tender (ITT) and presentation phases.

Cal Partners can act as a facilitator and project manager in joint/consortia bids working with external partners to satisfy tender criteria or to provide wider geographical coverage.

Given the changing professional services market and the drive for costs savings there are significant opportunities for those with the skills to prepare, often on an urgent basis, strong proposals and tenders. From one page proposals to extensive tender documents and presentations, Cal Partners can assist in the tender and bid process.
