Module 1: Preparation and Planning

Welcome to the start of the online tender training. Throughout, I’ll cover all aspects of the tender process. You’ll be provided with the tools and resources to help your tender writing, as well as examples of common tender questions.

We start tender training with Preparation and Planning.

Like most things, the more time spent on planning, the better outcomes you’ll have. The same is true for writing winning tenders.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this module you will understand:

  • The ABCs of tendering, including five critical areas that you need to focus on for a winning response
  • Where to search for tenders, including both free and paid subscriptions for private and Government tenders
  • The tender process in a step-by-step summary
  • How to determine whether to bid or not to bid via a simple process and using our checklist
  • Information from an Evaluators perspective
  • Typical tender components and how to address what the client is seeking.

You’ll also have developed a Tender Checklist and a Bid or No Bid checklist customised to your organisation.
