Tender management and writing
Grow Your Business
SCLO can manage the full response for an invitation to tender.

Essentially, we will take the pain of this process away from you and allow you to get on with running your business.
Managing full tender responses for invitations to tender
SCLO can manage the full response for an invitation to tender. That means your business sends us the tender you need completing and we will design a plan and process for the systems required to complete it. Essentially, we will take the pain of this process away from you and allow you to get on with running your business.
We will work together to identify what content and key elements need to be included, then SCLO will complete that tender for you.
This allows you into the process for the invitation to tender. To put an analogy on it, this is qualifying for the Grand Prix. We will make sure that you are in the right position on the grid so that you can compete in the race.
These can be complicated to complete and time-consuming too but pre-qualification questionnaires are absolutely necessary. If you don’t complete this, you are out of the race before it starts.
Requests for quotations
These are used predominantly by employers or businesses that want to see a price. SCLO would work with your teams to understand what your pricing structures are and make your quotation look both interesting and attractive. We will include the correct wording to give you confidence when submitting it to a customer because we ensure that customer is getting what they want.
If you are a third-sector organisation looking to secure grant money from the likes of the Big Lottery and Department of Education, you will be looking at a variety of different pots of funds that are available. You will need to put in an application to say why your grant should be successful.
SCLO can support you by writing those applications and making sure it is the best it can be.
Sub-contracting expressions of interest
Do you need/want to work as a subcontractor? If so SCLO can work with you to make your expression of interest stand out and make sure that it answers the key questions. This will get your through the selection criteria and enable you to build and grow your business through sub-contracting activity.
Registrations onto preferred supplier frameworks
If you are in the world of apprenticeships or skills, there is an increased likelihood of ‘preferred supplier frameworks’ affecting your business.
If you are not on this framework, you simply cannot compete for their work. You could have a wonderful relationship with someone at a local authority but if you are not on their procurements team framework, that relationship is worth nothing.
SCLO can support your business and help you get on those frameworks and make sure you have the necessary qualification requirements to be able to compete for that business.
Full interpretations of tender questions to ensure high-quality answers
We have 14 years of experience of interpreting tender questions and making sure the answers we give actually answer the question. It is not a ‘cut and paste and hope for the best’.
We ensure that we show the quality in what you are doing and get your key points across to meet the needs of the customer marking the tender. We will work with you on what your key values are and what makes you different because everyone has a uniqueness. We will help draw those out and align them to the customers’ requirements so that they lock together to give you a high-scoring bid.
Detailed writing plans and storyboarding models
We will write a detailed plan and storyboarded model that will enable us to see where we are going and to make sure that we stay on track. We will get the best out of your knowledge, understanding and subject matter expertise to drive a high-quality response.
Development of innovative, effective and value-for-money solution designs to impress customers
We will work on what your delivery model looks like. We will make sure it looks innovative and is effective and provides value for money for both you and the customer and is ultimately, what your customer wants to buy. We will keep you on track so that you don’t develop something that is not required or that the customer does not want to buy.
Working in partnership to develop high-quality content
We will work with you in partnership to develop high-quality content and ensure that it stands out from your competitors, while adhering to the key marking themes and enabling success.
Capturing and using relevant evidence, data, statistics and case studies
We will help you capture and use the relevant evidence within your business to make sure that the evidence is backed up with data and statistics which gives the marker a greater flavour of what your business is trying to achieve and what your key qualities are.
Ensuring your voice, values and ethos are reflected in your tender
One size does not fit all. We want to get across your value, your ethos and your voice to reflect the qualities of your business.
