Why do we bid? This topic demonstrates the value the bid process adds to both the buyer and the supplier and the regulatory framework that the private and public sector operate within.

Social Value – This topic explores Social Value and how it relates to bidding.

Public sector and private sector bidding – There are key differences when bidding into the public and private sector. This topic provides a simple overview of the processes and how they are managed.

Identifying opportunities – How to find opportunities and maximise these, including the steps you can take in advance of any bid process.

Tenders and processes – We delve a little deeper into the component parts of the tender process.

Planning your response – How to plan and respond to the bid, share your story, and demonstrate how you will meet the buyer’s needs and add value.

Evaluation and scoring – This topic explains the evaluation process, sets out the process from the buyer’s point of view, and considers how you can manage the outcome if your bid doesn’t go to plan.
