  5. Bidding Fundamentals – Online Training Courses


At Value Match we provide procurement solutions and bid management services that are delivered with integrity.  This 60 minute course provides an introductory overview as to how you can understand the approaches that organisations take when awarding contracts.  This course will enable organisations to maximise their opportunity to successfully navigate the procurement processes, retaining or wining new contracts.  

Developed and created by bidding professionals, the bidding fundamentals course provides a practical understanding of the bidding process, policies, principles, and importantly what buyers are looking for, including the need to demonstrate social value as part of any credible bid response.

Learning Outcomes

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.

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.
