PQQ & Bid Writing

Our Service Delivery Partner Silverlock Tenders is a tender writing company that exists to help organisations win tenders and bids and also provides tender writing training.

Most people hate writing tenders, they put it off until the last few days, find the whole process stressful and confusing, and then end up losing. Not a good experience!

Over the last 8 years, Silverlock have grown to become one of the largest bid writing companies in the Midlands with a team of 17 writers and 2 procurement experts. Their approach is to focus on the following 3 key elements required to produce a strong bid:

  • Excellent writing
  • Excellent bid management
  • Excellent understanding of the buyer’s/funder’s mindset.

Their experience is that focusing on the above three aspects, and working in close partnership with the bidder who provides the material for us to use, significantly increases the likelihood of success. It also saves a massive amount of senior management time for the client, develops strong material for them to use in future bids and increases their skills and knowledge.
