Should you respond to a Tender?

Determine if this tender is the right fit for your business

Taking the time and effort to complete a Tender is an investment. An investment of your time and resources that can reap significant rewards if you’re successful.

Step 1 of 3

Evaluate your next tender opportunity and assess your business’ readiness to respond using our ‘To Tender or Not to Tender’ checklist. This checklist is informed by 20 years of working with clients and analysing their wins and losses. It will take just 5 minutes to complete, and you will receive an immediate answer from Tender Writers on whether you are ready to respond to the tender.
