Goodman Masson engaged Bid Solutions to source a junior bid position within our organisation, although the role was filled directly, we are very pleased with the service received. Our consultant Ben communicated with us on a regular basis to gain a full understanding of the brief and shortlisted many suitable candidates for the role. His knowledge of the bid market was impressive and proved to be very helpful throughout the process. We will definitely use Bid Solutions again and recommend to others.

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

What makes a successful bid?

Hi Pippa

In your expert opinion what makes a successful bid the winner from the loser, as it seems doing the actual job on the ground seems to be almost void.
