Before you hand in your tender:
• Review it to make sure it is complete and does not contain errors.
• Make sure someone other than the original responder proofreads the entire document at least once, since it is harder to spot mistakes when you are too close to a project.
• Check that it meets the required format and style.
Many organisations, such as government agencies, can be very stringent with their deadlines, so it is also important that you hand your tender response to the right person, at the right location, before the specified closing time and date.
Putting together a great tender can take a lot of effort, but the payoff can be enormous if you win. It is always good strategy to put as much care and attention into your tenders as you would any other area of the business. If your tenders are as good as they can be, odds are you will win the business. Learn how to make sure you are prepared to manage the increased workload.
