Businesses can find the administration of compliance overwhelming. It is well known that this is an important element within businesses and getting this right not only underpins the quality standards of your organisation, but can also be crucial in tendering and winning new business.
Crest has years of experience helping organisations obtain accreditations such as NCFE, City & Guilds. And also quality charters, such as Investors in People and Matrix.
Bidding for contracts
Bidding for contracts can help you to win big orders, although, for many businesses preparing tenders can be time consuming and daunting, cost money and tie up valuable resources. This is especially important for small businesses that rarely have that luxury of time.
In addition, If you don’t get the contract, the money and time spent is usually lost, and it could take time to recover. Remember, bidding for public sector contracts is a commitment, and you need to carefully weigh up whether or not a tender is worth bidding for.
As part of our process with you we will be working towards: -
- The purpose and origin of the bid
- Summarise your work as a contractor, past experience and credentials for this job
- How you'll carry out the work, and how and when the client's aims will be achieved
- The benefits and value for money of your bid
- Detail when and how goods and services are to be delivered, and provide a timetable
- Demonstrate your team's skills, experience of similar work and their responsibilities if you win the contract
- How you will manage the project
- Give details of your pricing and any aftercare arrangements within the price
- Be practical and identify potential problems without promising what's clearly impossible for you to deliver
Crest can help identify suitable opportunities, prepare and write review bids to support you to win contracts.
