To write and coordinate a large tender submission on behalf of BisCit to Xstrata and deliver within a tight timeframe.
BisCit was referred to Angela to assist in coordinating and producing all the selection criteria and supporting documentation required for a tender submission.
As with most small business operators, in-house resourcing was already at capacity, so the thought of needing to first of all understand the requirements of the submission in its entirety and then go about producing all the supporting documents, was somewhat overwhelming for BisCit.
Further, Xstrata had set very tight and stringent deadlines for delivery and so the expectations for turnaround and the ability to work to the deadline, was paramount for the client. They needed to know they could trust the process and that Angela would deliver when she said she would.
It's a common mistake that businesses make when they start to think about putting together bids or proposals for tenders: not having their 'tender toolbox' ready.
A tender toolbox includes all the supporting materials, some of which are marketing related, but mainly items like employee profiles, process flowcharts of how business is conducted, organisation charts, capability documents and case studies. If a business has been made aware of a tender opportunity late in the submission process or finds they are close to deadline, pulling all these items together quickly can be onerous and, potentially compromise their submission.
Fortunately, as BisCit had come to us, we have a full-service delivery model and were able to draw in additional writers and graphic designers to produce the materials within the tight deadline.
As professional tender writers, we were able to disseminate quickly the requirements and guide and enable what was needed to finalise their submission.
We delivered for BisCit all items required to make their submission on time.
