Three pathways to forge sustained bidding success.
Tendering is fraught with uncertainty. RFT release dates slip, submission dates get fast-tracked and changing requirements can suddenly turn no-bid situations into attractive opportunities. This makes forward planning difficult. When things get complicated you need certainty, simplicity and a way to engage expertise that allows you to plan with confidence.
And to maximise your return when using specialist bidding support, familiarity and trusted relationships allow you to quickly focus on high-value winning activities.
That’s what our three engagement plans provide.
Although each plan suits differing needs, all include preferential rates, exclusive membership to our Bid Club and special pricing for our soon-to-be-launched Bid Academy training courses. And when you choose to become part of the BidWrite community, we’ll have our very best people on hand to provide advice and support, whenever you need it.
If you’ve used our service before and want the security of a longer-term relationship, select a plan to suit:
Capture & Live Bid Support
Provision of our proven live bid consulting services, as well as assistance with upstream tendering activities including pipeline planning, bid/no bid decisions, positioning and bid library development. Provided at preferential rates quoted per bid, or cost-inclusive in a Transform plan.
Access tender response training courses through our Bid Academy. Ideal for team members wanting to upskill through focused training and learn industry best-practice from expert practitioners.
First Right of Refusal
Grants you a time-bound first option to use our services for tenders falling within a pre-agreed industry and geographical scope. This puts you first in the queue for securing certainty of service provision.
Regular scheduled catchups and direct hotline to an appointed senior bid consultant, so you can discuss current needs, future opportunity resource planning and seek advice when needed.
Bid Improve Program
A 24-month learning and capability development programme comprising an initial diagnostic audit, followed by a series of training modules focussed on people, organisation, process and technology/systems. Includes coaching and mentoring for staff to refine processes and practices.
Genuine partnerships bring better results, faster.
Tendering is too important to leave specialist support to chance. Our range of engagement plans gives you the opportunity to ensure we’ll be there when you need us, bringing the benefits of proven expertise, established working relationships and an intimate knowledge of your business.

I’m a new client who’s never used external bidding support before. How do I test drive your services without committing to an engagement plan?
I’m an existing client. Can I just call you when I need you, without having to commit to one of your engagement plans?
You don’t have to commit to a plan. But by not doing so, you risk us not being able to support you when needed due to other organisations already having made an ongoing commitment to use our services.
Why are Secure plans limited in number?
To avoid conflicts of interest, we don’t support multiple clients competing for the same tender. Because each industry has its own market structure, we agree the geographical and goods and services scope with Secure plan clients in advance. This limits the number of Secure plans available, with agreements reached on first-come, first-served basis.
How can Secure and Transform clients both have first right of refusal?
Secure and Transform plans meet different needs. Due to the intensive nature of our Transform program, we only work with a small and select number of Transform clients at any given time. This coupled with active client portfolio management guarantees no first right of refusal clashes between Secure and Transform clients.
Why are Transform plans only available by invitation?
This type of plan won’t suit every organisation. It requires a genuine and ongoing commitment from you, and us. Because of this, we want to ensure a good fit so that your investment in the program delivers the results we know it can.
How does the ROI pricing work for Transform plans?
Simply put, our ROI pricing model for Transform plans is based on a percentage of anticipated tendering revenue gains, calculated using a bespoke set of before and after bidding metrics. This ensures we are both in it to win it.
