When preparing a document yourself it is difficult to be objective about it. Sometimes tenders are so complex it is hard to take a strategic overview of the individual sections.
The role of the reviewer is to read the document as if they were the client, then help the author to improve the text. This will ensure the submission is clear, concise and addresses all the necessary requirements.
A good review will add value within the bid process. We will not demotivate the author, nor will we carry out a ‘red pen’ exercise.
Our reviews are tailored to your company, the opportunity for which you are bidding and the process you use.
The knowledge we have of industry best practice, means we are able to interpret the client’s requirements and review accordingly.
Our first step is always to have a comprehensive briefing about the project, and for us to read all the relevant documents.
We can carry out an independent evaluation of the whole document or we can work on individual sections. The work is usually undertaken in our own offices but feedback can then be given electronically, by telephone or in face-to-face meetings.
We strongly support good bid management to avoid last-minute panics however we know that sometimes timescales can slip. We work as flexibly as we can to accommodate your deadlines and can provide out-of-hours support for the emergency situations.
