Our Services

At SME Tenders we are all about getting small and medium-sized enterprises started on winning tenders. To start with, an organisation must have a range of things in place to tick the wide range of boxes commissioners need to complete. This can be done at short notice when bidding, but is best done on planned basis beforehand. Then there are the tenders themselves - writing them to make sure the strengths of the bidder come through whilst assuring the evaluator that all aspects of the service specification will be met. Once you have won a few bids, you will likely feel confident about "going it alone" for future tenders and this is fine with us. We can even help you set up efficient in-house systems to ensure that your tender process continues to get better and better as your business grows.

Tender ready

Advice on getting your business ready to compete with the big boys and win tender business. From your organisation structure to your envinment policy, do you have all that you need? Email us for your free "Tender Ready Checklist" to assess whether you have what it takes to win.

Tender writing

Full service tender writing or proof reading your own responses to tell your story effectively. There is an art to crafting responses to a tender which are compliant with the commissioners requirements and exceed their expectations of quality and performance.

Tender process

As you get bigger, you may want to set up your own internal tender team. We are able to help you to remove the need for our service by helping you set up your own opportunity management team to efficiently repeat successful tender submissions.

For a start up business or social enterprise bidding for business from government or large corporations can appear daunting. And yet it is the hard work and personal touch that SMEs deliver better than big business which can deliver the most amazing service.

SME Tenders help smaller organisations bring that quality to the tender process. Experienced entrepreneurs who have successful won bids in their own start-up companies provide advice and practical support in all aspects of the tendering process; from shaping your organisation to be successful, through writing winning bids, to helping you set up your own bidding process so you can do it all yourself in the future.

Our team of staff, writers and consultants are all experienced in setting up and growing small business through winning tenders. Each project will be managed by a named dedicated project manager whose job it will be to ensure your business objectives are met. Our senior staff team of Aydin, Lizzie and Elaheh will support the project manager and make sure everything remains on track for your success.

At first we were scared of bidding for a tender with our local authority. But SME Tenders helped us redesign some elements of our service and our policies to make sure the council could consider us. They then helped us win a place on the council's framework. We thought that would be enough, but your advice on maximising the business we get from the framework was a real insight. Our business is now growing exponentially. Thank you.

The council were refurbishing a great old building in a local park. When we heard they wanted someone to run a restaurant there, we were really excited. But then we saw what documentation we would have to provide to bid for the consession! Thank you SME Tender experts for helping us with a quick turnaround and great looking submission. Remember, you can have a free coffee in our new restaurant anytime!

I set up as an independent training provider because I am good at what I do. I didn't realise that I would need to be good at so many other things as well to make my new business a success. But thanks to SME Tenders I am now an approved trainer to a couple of big organisations and I can concentrate on developing courses rather than always chasing the next piece of business. They understand what it is like to be a small business owner just starting out.
