Bid Writing, PQQ and ITT

When it comes to Bid Writing, our success comes with yours

You’ve been working with the same client for years, if not decades and all of a sudden there’s a change in procurement and your faced with a PQQ or ITT and you’re not sure what they are, let alone where to start?

We recently spent 4 days supporting a small business in Staffordshire faced with exactly that predicament. Saligent are here to help micro and small businesses to compete with the bigger players in your chosen market. With a technical background, we understand construction and similar sectors, such as Rail and Infrastructure.

Our client has been servicing Network Rail for nearly 20 years supporting them in keeping our national rail service free from flood whilst protecting the local environment. With a change in the Network Rail’s framework structure for Drainage Services, the client was faced with the daunting task, having just scraped through the PQQ stage, of responding to the Invitation to Tender, ITT. As their number one customer, it was essential to the business that the response to Network Rail was submitted not only on-time, but demonstrated their years of knowledge, experience and incident free service.

Saligent were asked to support the small office team to compile the responses to the ITT, covering Health & Safety, Environmental and Technical questions. With limited time Saligent were flexible to meet the Clients requirements and ensure that the return was prepared with sufficient time for all documents to be reviewed and ‘sense-checked’ prior to submission via the web-portal and with 1 day to spare.

Give yourself and your business the best chance to succeed and contact Saligent Business Development to deliver your PQQ and ITT’s on-time and showcasing your business in the best possible light.
