Advice

Sometimes your business just needs a little help along the way. It could be some general guidance or maybe a bit of insider knowledge. That’s what our Advice service is all about.

We can help you understand if you’re ready to bid and help get you ready if you’re not. We can review your past performance to find areas where you can improve. We can help you build tools and processes to take your existing bid team to the next level. Whatever advice you need, we’ve got an experienced buyer on hand to support you every step of the way.

Here’s an idea of the sort of things we can advise you on

  • Getting ready to bid
  • Finding tender opportunities
  • The EU Procurement Rules
  • Developing tools and processes
  • Reviewing contracts or planning negotiations
  • Interpreting tender documents or communications from buyers
  • Developing and monitoring Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

Is the advice you’re looking for not listed here? Don’t worry. Our advice service is intended to be flexible – if it’s a buyer’s input or perspective you need, we can help.

How it works

  1. Email or call us to explain the challenges you’re facing
  2. We’ll provide some high-level guidance and arrange a follow-up meeting with you
  3. We’ll carry out an assessment of your needs to help us decide what advice would be most beneficial for you
  4. We’ll provide you with a proposal, itemising the advice and support we can offer you and the associated cost and benefits, so that you can make an informed decision about what’s best for your business
  5. If you decide to move forward, we’ll work to the plan we’ve sent you, keeping you updated and informed throughout
