Tendering Services

Tendering can be time consuming for small to medium sized businesses, the documentation can be confusing and not knowing how to tender can cause frustration. If your business is running to full capacity you will be concentrating on your core business and may not have the time to prepare and submit a Government Tender, an Express ion of Interest (EOI) for a maintenance contract or even contractor prequalification tenders for work as a preferred subcontractor carrying out regular work for a principal contractor. Off the Tools provide a range of Tendering Services to suit your needs and budget.

Benefits of Tendering

  • Win new work and/or important contracts;
  • Establish new business relationships;
  • Break into new markets; and
  • Grow your business.

Preparing a winning tender
Preparing a successful tender involves more than being the cheapest supplier of a product or service. Successful tenders will almost always:
  • Clearly demonstrate your capacity to deliver tender outcomes;
  • Conform to tender submission requirements;
  • Are presented concisely and with visual impact to impress; and
  • Highlight your “point of difference” and “value added” services which makes your business stand out.
Three key factors in WINNING bids
You generally need all three to win

Some common mistakes include:
  • Leaving it too late;
  • Missing mandatory briefing meetings;
  • Submitting a non-conforming tender because you didn’t address one of the essential requirements;
  • Thinking getting someone to help is too expensive when it can be just a few days work in many cases; and
  • Not having the necessary policies and procedures (even though in practice you actually do everything required to a high standard, it’s just not documented).
