So … an invitation to tender arrives. It needs to be completed within, say, four weeks. You are very busy at the moment, but should be able to find some time to look at the tender towards the end of next week – and hopefully do most of the work required. Next week arrives and some other stuff has cropped up. However the following week you should be able to find some time to look at the tender … and so it goes on.
If you are struggling to find the time to write your tenders, you need to consider outsourcing to a professional tender services company who will not only relieve some of that time, but will work with you to write a tender that stands a great chance of winning.
