The Social Entrepreneur’s Guide to Winning Tenders

Would you like to grow your social enterprise by delivering appropriate public sector contracts?

Perhaps it’s part of your business development strategy already. You might be a seasoned bidder.

Or perhaps you feel overwhelmed by everything involved. You may wonder how and where to start.

Whether experienced or new to bidding, The Social Entrepreneur’s Guide to Winning Tenders will address social entrepreneurs’ most common challenges. Order your copy today.

The 40 page guide will help you:

  • understand the context in which public service contracts are put out to tender
  • know the numbers: the scale and value of outsourcing in the UK
  • strengthen your organisation so you are ready and fit to bid
  • find invitations to tender for public sector contracts
  • understand the pros and cons of bidding and how to decide whether to respond
  • learn how to use procurement portals
  • understand how contracting authorities evaluate bids
  • decide what to do if you’re part of a collaborative response and you think you might be “bid candy”
  • get to grips with the implications of the Social Value Act
  • plan, assemble and write a great bid
  • win or lose, learn from the process.

Incorporating specific advice which works

I have written successful bids as a consultant, a business owner, a social entrepreneur and as a volunteer or board member. I have written bids which did not succeed too, and learned a great deal from the process.

I’ve also been on the other side of the fence, running the procurement process for contracts.

This toolkit draws on my experience and also on the expertise of a variety of social entrepreneurs and knowledgeable specialists.
