  • How is the process of writing government tenders different from that of business tenders?

    Although the goal of bid and tender writing services is essentially the same, writing government tenders is considered a bit more challenging. Since government tenders are open to public scrutiny, they follow a very specific format and must be written in strict adherence to all instructions given in the request for tender or proposal. 

    Likewise, private and listed companies seeking tenders or proposals often have a rigorous tender response process, with a formal request for tender or proposal. Others, however, can be much more informal and you may therefore find the process of tendering to listed and private companies very different to tendering to government.

    Most requests for tenders or proposals from government, private and listed companies come with a template with word count limits and file format requirements. You need to address the selection criteria, choose relevant referees and comply with other requirements in your tender. Whether you are responding to an RFT or RFP, missing any required information could disqualify you from the tender. 

    This is why it’s crucial for our tender and proposal writers to see and scrutinise the actual RFT or RFP, as well as copies of your previous tender documents. This way, we can collate relevant information, ask questions and help you create a professionally written tender that’s complete and compliant.

  • How much does Proof Communications charge for its government tender writing services?

    While we maintain a pricing list for our services, no two government tender writing projects are exactly the same. We calculate the fee per project based on several factors, such as the number of questions in the RFT or RFP, the level of complexity, the number of days dedicated to working on the project and the amount of research and data collation. This means that we need to see the document you want us to work on so we can provide you with a fair, no-obligation quote.
