We focus on emphasizing our clients’ unique qualities, and adjust the content of the bids, so they accommodate the requirements of the tender. Our structured bid writing process ensures more time for progress, quality and review during a pressured time period, which gives our clients a satisfying result in the end.

We review, evaluate and edit bid material for our clients during every step of the tender process – from prequalifications to the final bid. We use a special evaluation model, that uncovers the strengths and weaknesses of the bid material, which gives our clients a clear indication of where to place further efforts.
We make sure that the bid material answers the demands of the tender thoroughly and comprehensively, and we help our clients emphasize the unique skills and propositions, that can have an impact on the final evaluation result.
