EDS Group offers High Voltage Turnkey solutions to the renewable energy sector. Its team of engineers and consultants is highly qualified experts in their field. They needed help to capture this expertise in order to submit a winning bid to a major UK Energy company.
Bespoke worked in a consultancy capacity to manage all aspects of the bid. We made a detailed review of the tender document which identified common themes and positioned them against the business’s USPs. We created a plan and presented this to all members of the bid team at a kick-off meeting. We secured the buy-in from all collaborators and gave guidance about the common themes that needed to feature in all aspects of the bid.
We oversaw contributions from more than 15 subject matter experts including health and safety, testing, commissioning, etc. Few of the contributors wrote regularly as part of their job and possessed little bid writing experience. We provided telephone, email and live chat support and were on hand to offer advice and answer questions whenever any member of the team needed us. We chaired regular conference calls (three per week) to check progress, identify challenges and offered coaching throughout. We gave feedback on all written submissions and worked on drafts with the authors to revise them to a consistent style and standard throughout the bid.
The bid was successful.
“We couldn’t have won this bid without Bespoke. They came up with a project plan, managed and improved all the contributions from the team, and maintained tight control over the project to ensure we stuck to the plan. The result was a fantastic submission and we were delighted to win a crucial contract.”
