Tender reflections learning from the past Tender Development: Learning from the past

Each time we complete a tender submission at Tender Success we spend countless hours "chewing the cud" about what went well and what could have gone better. Hindsight is a wonderful tool – but only if it’s used. (More...)

Getting to No Strategy: Getting to No

It may seem counter-intuitive, but sometimes choosing No-Bid can be best for your business. But how do you get to 'No' when your heart says 'Yes'? (More...)

Here's a selection of questions we're often asked about Tender Success. If your question isn't here, please contact us for a personal response.

Q: What does Tender Success do?

Tender Success is a boutique consultancy, made up of Australian professionals that specialise in developing winning tender submissions. In real terms, that means we can help you with strategy, project management & visual design, or with managing the entire submission process. You can read more about our approach by clicking here.

Q: What can Tender Success do for me?

Hopefully, plenty. Our specialists may help you:

  • Build your ability to manage the entire submission process
  • Relieve you of some of some repetitive admin
  • Grow your negotiation skills
  • Help you devise a Bid/No-Bid strategy for your business
  • Assist you to develop a Proposal Management Process
  • Build your library of quality 're-use' material
  • Give your documents visual punch, clarity and legibility

To add to the list, Contact us for an initial consultation.

Q: How much does it cost?

Obviously, every submission is different. However, we use an open-book price tariff and always try to provide at least indicative costings up front. We're happy to talk specifics, once we know the scope of your tender project.

Q: How does Tender Success differ from other consultancies?

In at least three ways:

  • Tender Success only work with tender submissions - we're niche specialists.
  • We're a boutique consultancy: we offer bespoke services, tailored to the size and value of the job at hand.
  • Our Skills Transfer model means that we focus on building your in-house tender capability, leaving you better prepared to tackle future submissions yourself.

Q: Does Tender Success offer a success guarantee?

Of course, we'd love to offer a 100% success rate, but that's simply not realistic. Whilst we can't guarantee that any individual submission will win, our consultants will draw on an impressive track record and highly specialised skills to help you create a well-organised, powerfully-written, visually appealing submission. Those are the kind that usually do win.

Q: What about intellectual property? Who owns the final product?

You will. During a typical project, our consultants will deliver templates, content, matrices, diagrams, figures and documents. Much of this will have considerable value beyond the tender submission. Aside from any licensed material, this will all become your intellectual property to use as you deem appropriate.

Q: Can I use Tender Success for just a part of the submission?

Absolutely. Our flexible, bespoke approach is scalable to the size, value and impact of your submission. Alternatively, you can outsource the management of the entire process to us, if you prefer.

Q: Will Tender Success train my staff?

Yes. Our consultants aim to transfer expertise every time they work on a client project, and we also offer formal coaching & mentoring services. If you'd prefer bespoke one-on-one or classroom training, contact us to arrange an initial consultation.

Q: Can I purchase tools and templates from Tender Success?

We make our articles, tools and some templates freely available here, so you can use them for your own future submissions. Whilst we don't currently offer Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign templates for purchase, these will become your property to reuse if you engage our services. If you're interested in pre-registering for our comprehensive forthcoming eBook, please contact us to let us know.
