  5. Bid Decision

It is important to review every tendering opportunity against a bid decision process that aligns to what your organisation is trying to achieve. If you do not have a bid decision process in place, you run the risk of wasting time tendering for an opportunity that doesn’t align to your long-term objectives.

Start with the basics (below) and tailor/add to the questions to fit your goals!

Stage 1 Questions

  1. Does the opportunity fit within the strategic direction of your organisation?
  2. Do you/your organisation have the relevant experience to fulfil the specification
  3. Do you understand all the specification?
  4. Can you deliver the contract (with no/ minor changes to BAU activity)?

Answering No to any of the above probably mean you need to step back and take stock, why do you want to bid for this if it does not align to your objectives? Are those changing? Check where you are at internally and come back to review.

Stage 2 Questions

  1. Do you have the time and resource to write an excellent response?
  2. Do you understand the procurement process and what is being asked of you?
  3. Do you know who your competitors in the process are likely to be?
  4. Do you know who is currently supplying the buyers needs / for how long they have been doing this?
  5. Do your chances of winning merit the effort you will put in to bidding?

Answering No to any of the above is not the end of the world, Value Match Services can provide a range of flexible support options to suit your needs.
