“We are an SME and recently worked with Tenders-UK on a £36M Ministry of Defence contract. Following a conversation with them we opted for an evaluation service, giving the fact we had expertise to write internally, and we were confident about our own bid writing capabilities. The support was fantastic. After we submitted our drafts, they evaluated all 100 pages of response, providing a substantial amount of review comments, and changes required. The extent of the evaluation meant we had to rewrite and redraft around a third of our entire bid.
Last week we were awarded the contract, securing 100% on Quality – ahead of large plc bidders. I have no doubt in my mind that Tenders-UK had a significant impact and influence over our perfect Quality score. We will definitely be using them again in the future to support our own internal bidding processes.”
