10. Facilities Management: Security For Events

Our Role

We worked with the client for over 18 months, providing on-going bid writing support on over 60 bids. We were engaged to provide support on the writing of a bid to provide security services at the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

Our Support

For the duration of the bid we provided the following:

  • Bid Manager
  • Senior Bid Writer
  • Bid Writer


Following the concerns raised over the management of the security at the Olympic Games, the organisers of the Commonwealth Games (the Games) were focused on avoiding similar issues.

As this was a high profile opportunity, our client was extremely motivated to have a presence at the Games.

The Result

We worked closely with the Senior Operations and the Regional Operations Manager to explore the requirements of the bid, the customer and what our client could provide. As we
had worked with the client for a significant period of time, we already had a good understanding of their service and their offering. We worked with the client on how the service would be designed to reflect the exact needs to the customer. This included researching the various sites where the different events were being held, such as the Aquatics Centre, to understand key needs of the service.

We were pleased to hear that our client was successful with the bid.
