Tender Writer Five more essential skills
required to write winning tenders
  • In a previous article I outlined 5 skills
    required by a tender writer to craft great tender
  • Tender writing is not a skill most people can
    just pick up a quality Tender Writer will
    refine their craft over years and so it takes
    time to get to the point where your responses to
    tender are consistently high quality.

  • Following are five more essential skills that
    I believe an effective tender writer requires-
  • Collaboration-
  • collaboration really is important. Firstly
    collaborating with others will take the pressure
    off you as you wont have to be the fountain of
    all knowledge and you can get others to assist
    you to reduce the workload a little.
  • Secondly you will probably need to collaborate
    and get the specialised input from others in the
    organisation because they will have some
    specialised knowledge about pricing, about the
    experience of senior/integral personnel, about
    organisational policies or insurances, about your
    competitors there is lots of information you
    will have to pull together from a variety of
  • The more you can collaborate with others the more
    rounded and comprehensive your response should be.

  • Analytical-
  • it is vital that you use your analytical skills
    in many different contexts when writing ten ders
    or considering to write a tender.
  • Initially you need to analyse just what tenders
    to pursue and what tenders to miss.
  • You only should be applying to those tenders that
    fit your organisation and business perfectly.
  • You then need to analyse the tender requirements
    and each question and criteria and identify
    exactly what information or supporting documents
    you need to prepare a robust answer/response.
  • Further your analysis skills should be used to
    review and analyse financial data, statistics,
    research which might help support your tender

  • Financial-
  • pricing is a very important aspect of successful
    tender writing.
  • You have to be competitive on pricing or with
    your budget and that means you have to analyse
    your financial situation and use your financial
    management skills to that you can compete in the
    same ball park as your competitors.
  • You need however to ensure that whatever
    pricing/budget strategy you develop that this
    wont affect your future sustainability.
  • Written-
  • obviously you need decent written skills to craft
    responses and to prepare comprehensive answers to
    questions and criteria.
  • You dont need to write like you are writing a
    University thesis because you need to write with
    a passion and a flair but yes decent writing
    skills are essential.

  • Time Management-
  • This is an essential skill. You need to be able
    to plan your tender response and manage all
    aspects of it to ensure you meet required
  • Many tenders are very complex and require
    significant input and therefore you really need
    to plan these thoroughly to ensure you get all
    the information/supporting documents you need.
  • Remember a tender submitted after the deadline
    will almost certainly be rejected and not
    considered. Very very rarely will they make an
