Our Story

How We Started – A History of Both Sides

The company commenced business in Perth in 2008 by owners and directors Nigel Dennis and David Lunn because of a life-long friendship at opposing sides of the tender transaction. At that stage, Nigel had been involved in over 1,000 tender responses on the seller side and David had 25 years of procurement experience on the buyer side.

They soon realised that each had much to be learned from the “other side” and so began the BidWrite approach to tendering that challenges conventional thinking.

In 2010, David Harvey joined as a third director from Brisbane to run our East Coast operations. BidWrite now has offices in Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

Why Choose BidWrite

BidWrite stands out over its competitors because of some clear advantages:

  • Specialists: As BidWrite is a tendering specialist and this is all we do, you get focus, efficiency and years of practical, hands-on experience for proven results. Our directors are passionate about their craft.
  • Best practice: We have strong affiliations with leading industry bodies: Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) on the seller side and the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) on the buyer side. This means you get the best industry has to offer. Any consultant without these links just has not got access to world’s foremost thinking in this space.

  • First rate references: BidWrite enjoys strong and long term relationships with clients across Australia. For confidentiality reasons we do not openly share client details. However, we can provide several references and testimonials (subject to establishing that no potential conflict exists).
  • Better value: BidWrite doesn’t just format and spell check. Our team improves the more important aspects of your request or response documents – strategy, structure and messaging.
