Key Facts :-

  • Fact No 1- The strategies we are about to share with you is not new. In fact, some of your competitors are using them and as a result are making more sales to public buyers.
  • Fact No 2- Most small businesses are not able to win contracts because they do not have the capacity to research the market consistently and to identify and go after opportunities that are not overcrowded by their competitors.
  • Fact No 3- For every one contract advertise in well known tender portals, there is approximately 30,000 competitors chasing the same opportunity. To make matters worst, less than 30% of the opportunities in the public sector are promoted in many of the paid and popular tender portals
  • Fact No 4- Most of the so called ‘Meet The Buyers Event’ do not work for small businesses because in many cases the representatives for public buyers are not the decision makers. Small businesses just don’t have the time and money resources to follow up these buyers and many businesses just go for the easy and hard option in their attempt to win contracts.
  • Fact No 5- Despite the government’s investment in training and support for women in business, recent statistics shows less than 10% of the contracts awarded through competefor has been awarded to women owned businesses.

OK, you may agree or disagree with these facts and quite frankly it does not matter to me because all can be proven. As a small business development consultancy firm that have worked with hundreds of small businesses in the UK and helped many businesses to understand the bidding process, as well as win contracts, you want o take note of our findings and conclusions. You can carry on wasting time chasing aspirational bids, paying for bid alert that are not truly targeted at your specific needs, attend out-dated meet the buyers event at your expense or read every word on this page, digest it and hand over the key to your bidding activities to us. The choice is yours.

We conclude that for small businesses to make a headway in improving their public sector sales, they will need to embark on outsourcing some or all of their bidding services to specialist consultants who can assist them in:

  • Sourcing highly suitable leads,
  • Writing and submiting bids
  • Reviewing bids and much more.

As a small business, you will agree that the number one killer for many SMEs trying to sell to the public sector, aside limited understanding of the bidding process,is the sheer time it takes to source these opportunities, as well as the time it takes to bid for them without any guarantee that the bidder will win the contract. The amount of paper work can be insurmountable irrespective of the fact that public buyers have good reasons to be extremely formal in their buying processes. In many cases 35hours or more should be set aside for handling all the forms and paper work in bidding for one single contract. A one man business just cannot afford this investment in time and as such they are put off by the entire process. That’s being said, once a business wins a contract, it usually last for three to five years, all things being equal, and so the initial investment in time and resources whilst high, is counter balanced by the benefits of having a steady stream of income during the contract period. It is primarily for this reason many small businesses like to bid for public contracts simply because it offers them some form of security in their income.

Taking all of the opportunities and threats surrounding the bidding process, the single point you must take from all of this is that bidding for public contracts successfully, does require a small business to be strategic in their approach. Using external expert consultancy firm, like ours, helps many businesses identify and access more contract opportunities, as well as boost their success rate in the bidding round. We know that small businesses that are growing through the expansion of public sector sales, do leverage their time and resources utilising expert consultancy supports in one or more of the following areas: 

  • Sourcing public sector leads via tender alert services
  • Bid writing 
  • Bid reviews
  • Policy formulation and systems reviews and writing
  • Accreditation

It is this strategy that we now want you to utilise in your business model so that you too can show case your products and services to more public sector buyers. Unfortunately many of these consultancy support services tend to request 12 months fee to be paid in advance by their clients, without any guarantee of providing a single lead, not to mention bidding successfully for contracts. As a result, many small businesses that cannot afford this investment because of the immediate impact on their cash-flow are missing out. You may have considered using expert services or consultants in the past, to support your bidding activities but have been put off by the payment plan. This is quite understandable given the current economic climate.

We have taken on board the needs of many of the small businesses we work with. We have put together a range of packages that small businesses can now access with bonus offer to help source leads for sub-contracting opportunities from first tier suppliers, as well as source leads for first tier supplier opportunities directly from public buyers. Our services do not request upfront payment of the annual fee. You simply need to pay one month in advance to access the service and we offer money back guarantee to your business for the first 30 days. We also offer a separate service on bid review and follow up on any prior bids as part of our consultancy service. If you believe your business deserve to grow through public sector sales as part of your marketing strategies sign up for one of our programmes today. If you need more information on any aspect of our services do contact us for more information by phone or by email.

Hi Sheila,

I have been meaning to contact you regarding the proposal. I have been successful and will start delivering training contract on 2nd April 2008. So just to say thanks for your help.

~Deslynne Roberts; Managing Director; Arete Consultancy Limited Claire

Hello,

This is to say THANK YOU for recommending Sheila Elliott to me as a mentor. She made a great difference to my business. She held my hand - obviously not literally - through the tendering process and as a result I have managed to win a sub contract from xxxxxxxxxxx (removed for confidentiality) to refurbish their 'voids'. She helped me with my business plan, my various policies, method statement and risk assessment. I applied to xxxxxxxxx (name of the company removed for confidentiality) with a renewed confidence which really worked.

Hello,

I have been in business for over 7 years and in that time had considered tendering for Public sector contracts but did not feel I had the know-how to put something meaningful together. The information, tips and support provided by BSS was invaluable in bridging this gap and giving me the confidence to put in my first application early this year. I was very pleased that this application was successful thanks to BSS, and I look forward to more successes with their help.Jacqueline Willams- Business Owner AAA Consultancy Services
