Tender Advice – I’ve Got A Feeling

Tender response advice sometimes, when you are working on a proposal or tender response, you get a little niggle.

You can’t, or don’t, put your finger on it, but something doesn’t feel quite right. You have plenty to get on with, so the temptation is to ignore it. However, this little niggle might turn out to be the factor that loses you the business.

If you think, “I’ve got a feeling …”, don’t ignore it, make a note of it, and come back to it later. In fact, there are three opportunities to pin down little niggles.

  • There and then, when you first feel it.
  • After you have finished working on the project that day.
  • Once you have completed a draft response to the project. It is really important to review the document and unearth any niggles.
