- How much do your tender writing services cost?
The cost of tender writing is based on two factors:
• The complexity of the request for tender: the number of documents comprising the RFT, the number of questions to be answered, the number of policies or plans to be included
• The extent of your existing information, materials, and resources, if any. The more you can provide Tender Writers to help us write your tender, the better. However, many clients don’t have much information to give us. We mostly source the information they need in telephone or videoconference meetings. Our aim is for you to not have to write anything.
To provide you with a proposal for tender writing, Tender Writers will need to review the Request for Tender or Proposal documents and confirm the information and resource you have available.
As a general guide, tender writing costs range significantly. Many clients find that they need more help with writing tenders than they realise at the outside.
Fees range from $3,000 up to $20,000 plus GST or more, although it’s unusual for tenders to be at the higher end.
It’s important to keep in mind the value of the tender to your business if you win. How much revenue will the tender win generate over what timeframe? What will be your return on investment?
This will help you determine the investment you’re prepared to make to be in the very best position to win.
