Running a Tender to Procure Goods or Services?
Are you looking for help running a competitive tender? We are experts in the tendering process: evaluating the market; sourcing suppliers; drafting and managing RFPs, ITTs and evaluating responses.
The objective - Outsourcing services to specialist providers should result in a better quality of service and value for money. Clear objectives and well-defined requirements can ensure that your suppliers understand your needs and are able to meet them. They provide you with expert guidance and support, improved supplies or services in compliance with industry standards – all at a lower overall cost.
The challenge - A competitive procurement exercise could be your opportunity to improve your business strategies. However, if the right procedures are not being followed and inadequate resources allocated to the task, it could be an opportunity missed.
For example, if you don’t issue Invitations To Tenders (ITTs), Requests For Proposals or Quotations (RFPs/RFQs) on a regular basis, you may find you don’t have the in-house skills to manage the process successfully. Or you may simply be short of the skilled resources you urgently need. It’s then that costly mistakes can be made.
The solution - eXceeding can help you to get the most out of your sourcing and procurement. Our consultants have years of experience in all aspects of competitive tenders, from helping refine your requirements, sourcing suppliers, writing tender documentation, managing processes, scoring responses and negotiating client centric contractual terms.
Our service, which will be adapted to your individual requirements, will ensure that you define what you need, select the best potential providers and get the most favourable commercial terms with a contract that protects you rather than just your supplier.
We will take you through every step of the tender process, providing advice and consultation on all the following and more:
- Business needs analysis
- Requirements gathering
- Documenting and defining your expected return on investment
- Assessing and testing the market
- Creating tender documentation – PPQs, RFIs, RFPs, RFQs & ITTs
- Managing the tender process – right through to supplier selection, contract award and management
Whether you need assistance with a single element of the process, such as creating tender documents or using our knowledge of potential suppliers to invite to tender…or if you need a complete turnkey service where we run the entire process, every tender engagement is tailor-made to meet your exact requirements.
