APMP Training

Good afternoon,

I currently work as a Bid Manager, and as such my CEO has suggested that I look into obtaining APMP training for a foundation level accreditation.

I have spoken with a number of industry experts and they have all suggested Jon Williams as a trainer. To this extent will you be offering any courses in the near future? If so will any of these be with Jon ?

Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you.

Team motivation and engagement in times of change

We’ve had a lot of change in our team over the past months – people leaving and joining at all levels. From your experience, do you have any useful strategies for keeping existing and valued team members motivated and engaged in this situation?

Bid library structure and management

I have been tasked with overhauling our bid library to turn it into a highly functioning asset and for it to contain the right information our team would then use within future bids.

Its a folder system that is split down into Text and Evidence, but there is a lot of duplication of information, content that is years old which people struggle to let go of and a significant portion is just not fit for purpose.

So not only do I need to assess, edit, refresh all the content but also try and  change people’s attitudes towards it, get our technical teams to contribute and make it a successful resource.

Now I know I may be overthinking it, but frankly I’m not sure where to start! as team lead should I be having first crack at it all, or split it out amongst the team which could result in different writing styles but achieve buy-in? I’m keen to hear of systems that have worked / layout / approach / how often people review their content etc?

Many thanks, Fi

Direct award options for unique services

Hi Peter,

In a situation where a supplier is the sole provider of a unique service that a public sector buyer wishes to procure, are there any options for a direct purchase without competition? The specific example is a support and maintenance renewal for software already licensed.

Many thanks
