It is becoming apparent that tendering is the most common way for companies to win new work and to renew current contracts, often key to the businesses profitability and occasionally essential for the continuation!
High-value commercial tenders are regularly available however they often have extensive technical requirements that are challenging to work through. This can include completing in-depth responses for a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) just to qualify for selection of the Invitation To Tender (ITT). Depending on the type of tender, response formats can vary from a few pages to complex applications with precise technical requirements. A new popular and increasing form of response is an on-line portal submission, which unfortunately can be difficult to navigate around. To add to the confusion government spend is often spent on a variety of portals, all of which are different with their own idiosyncrasies!
These submission formats take a long time to master and can only really be learnt “on-the job”. So do you really want to learn the pitfalls of types of submissions on a vital tender submission? I personally find the on-line portal submissions the most daunting. On my first portal submission a batch of on-line questions were discovered hidden within the stages of submission. As a bid team we did not enter the submission stage until we downloaded the documents and started building our response. But unearthing these questions with only a couple of days left caused the whole team a lot of unnecessary stress.
