Title: 5 Ways to Improve Your Tender Application Writing

Modern PowerPoint Presentation
Whether youre a seasoned tender application
writer or someone who is new to the game, we can
all improve our tender application writing
skills. Competition for tender applications is
at an all-time high, so you need to nail your
tender writing application every time. Want to
improve your tender application writing for
maximum success? Here are our top five
1.Separate Yourself From the Crowd
Chances are, your tender writing application is
one of potentially hundreds of similar
applications. So, ask yourself, Why should my
organistaion receive this tender application
ahead of other organisations? If you think you
can complete a project more quickly, then say so.
If you feel like you can deliver a project in a
more cost-effective manner, then highlight this.
If you have an outstanding track record in
completing similar project, make sure you mention
them and have references from satisfied
customers! What is it about you, that makes you
distinct from every other organisation that is
applying for the same tender? Your tender
writing application is all about reassuring your
funding body that their money will be put to
better use with you, than with all the rest.
2.Nail Your Accreditation, Policies and Compliance
Writing good policies and procedures may not be
the most enthralling task, but it is essential to
your success rate as a tender application writer.
Having a full range of policies and procedures
(such as workplace health and safety, staff code
of conduct, bullying, harassment and
discrimination policies I could go on and on),
demonstrates your commitment to maintaining high
standards. It may not be a fun job, but its a
Also, having accreditations provides a great
boost to your tender writing application. It
demonstrates that you know exactly how to do a
job and are qualified to do it. Additionally,
every aspect of your bid should be compliant.
That means you must have all the supporting
documents that show that your company conforms to
any relevant legislation.
3.Keep it Simple, Stupid!
Sometimes, in an effort to sound authoritative,
we can be tempted to use big words and complex
technical jargon. Sure, we all want to be taken
seriously and be respected as a tender writer,
but using unnecessarily flowery language, wont
do that. If your tender application reviewer has
to use a thesaurus to understand what youre
saying, your application is more likely to end up
in the bin. No one cares about your attempts to
bewilder your readers with your eloquent and
boundless vocabulary. The best tender
applications are simple, straightforward and
easily understood. Period.
  • How do you do that? Try a few of these ideas
  • Dont use vague words and empty phrases E.G.
    nearly, almost, about, approximately or roughly
  • Dont use jargon, technical language, acronyms,
    or clichés
  • Dont use words you wouldnt use in normal,
    everyday speech, meaning there is no need for a
  • Use short words, short sentences, and short
    paragraphs to help readers follow along and stay
  • Where possible, use charts and graphs to help
    explain your points these also help break up
    text and make documents easier to read. They also
    communicate more powerfully
  • Use headings and subheadings to break up huge
    blocks of text
  • Dont be overly formal. You should write
    conversationally while staying professional.

4.Proofread Your Tender Application to Death
I labour this point again and again to tender
application writers, but it is literally the
simplest way to improve your application. Nothing
erodes your credibility faster than poor
spelling, grammar and punctuation. If you cant
be trusted to produce an error-free tender
application, then why would an organisation give
you their hard-earned money to use?
Sure, spending several hours doing careful
proofreading might not be your idea of a good
time. Spelling, punctuation and grammar dont
come naturally to everyone. But, when it comes
to tender application writing, it pays to pay
someone to do it for you, especially if you dont
have the gift yourself. In fact, getting someone
to take a second look over your work makes
perfect sense. Chances are, if your tender
proposal doesnt make sense to your editor, then
it wont make sense to the funders. Get your work
5.Get Professional Help

of professional tender writing services win more
tenders. Red Tape Busters are specialist in grant
