Amanda explores the range of clients the firm serves and how it works to ensure that they always receive the very highest possible standards of support. “Here at Think Tenders, our expert Bid Writers provide tender support within a variety of sectors such as NHS, niche SME organisations, multi- national corporates, civil engineering, recruitment, catering, law, construction and contract cleaning, to name a few. As a company we have extensive experience in responding to often challenging and complex tenders, particularly OJEU procedures. We have secured a range of private and public- sector contracts, and consistently achieve high conversion rates. Recent successes include securing the largest UK public sector contract for interpreting and translation services to the MOJ for one client, and the largest NHS contract ever put out to tender, won by our client University Hospitals Birmingham. “To support this vast range of clients, our bid writing service is as flexible as a client needs it to be and depends on how much assistance each needs. We undertake an initial full diagnostic with to understand where our support would be best utilised, for example are they complete novices to the tender process and need to set up their internal bid procedures and understanding from scratch? Do they have they experience in bidding for contracts but are not achieving the desired win rates and need to understand where they are going wrong?” Looking to the future, Think Tenders’ ongoing focus will be in supporting SMEs to grow and prosper, as Amanda concludes. “Going forward, we are particularly keen to support SME organisations. Since 2010, central government has spent over 26% of its procurement budget with SMEs, totalling £12.1bn. As part of its Small and Medium-sized Enterprise Initiative, the government now pledges to increase this to 33% by 2020. “To achieve this ambitious target of £1 in every £3 of government spend being with small businesses, there has never been a better time for SMEs to tender to the public sector. As such, if companies are serious about growing their business and securing public sector contracts, now is the time to act and Think Tenders’ Bid Writers can help every step of the way.” Think Tenders is an award-winning organisation offering a fully outsourced freelance tender writing and bid writing service.
