We have recently supported a number of our clients with adding some branding to their tender responses. This has been from creating new logos and colours, through to development of existing branding. The difference this makes to the final submission is incredible. Not only does the client have a well written response, but it also looks highly professional and serious – really making them stand out from the competition.

Fantastic news for our domiciliary care client who have found out that their Invitation to Tender (ITT) was successful! We recently provided writing support to the client for a large ITT for a public authority in London. The client was informed of their success and have been asked to deliver a presentation to the authority. We have been speaking with the client recently, providing additional guidance and support with the development of their presentation.

A recent article was published online recently indicating that the government were taking steps to improve opportunities for SMEs to compete for public sector business. The article suggests that a “centralised system” will be launched that will make it “easier and cheaper” for SMEs to bid for contracts.
We deal with a huge number of SME clients, most of who will openly comment on the difficulties faced in securing public sector work. Going beyond their own capacity to complete an actual tender, our clients often report on how complicated and convoluted the whole tender process can be.
It’s always promising to hear when the government are taking action to support SMEs and to generate growth with sustainable business.

This really is fantastic news for our client, who now is preparing a presentation for the buyer.

We’ve just been reading about the Public Services (Social Value) Act and what this means for buying organisations, such as housing associations.
We always see sections in PQQs and ITTs relating to a company’s strategy on corporate social value or responsibility, so it is no big surprise that this Act has come in to effect. It’s a good move towards helping SMEs securing contracts with public sector organisations who have struggled to do so in the past. Let’s watch this space!
