Bid Reviews

Perhaps your company has the capacity to write a bid but you want an expert, objective opinion of it with suggestions for improvement? Maybe you need someone to independently review the document to ensure you have fully answered the questions? Or maybe you need someone to review a failed submission to find out what was missing and how you can improve future documents?

We all know how easy it is to become ‘word blind’ when you are too close to a piece of work. You lose the ability to spot errors of fact, spelling and grammar which will influence evaluators and create an unwanted impression of sloppiness and lack of commitment to winning.

Our bid review service provides the opportunity for an experienced third party to evaluate your work in sufficient time for improvements to be made. Propeller’s knowledgeable and experienced bid writing consultants will act as your ‘critical friend’ giving you detailed feedback and suggestions for improvement.

Our bid review service ensures that you have answered the questions being asked, provided credible evidence of your abilities and presented the information in a style that is engaging to the evaluator. As a consequence you will score better marks. The service includes:

  • bid review by a professional bid writer with many years’ experience writing and winning bids
  • fully marked up documents with comments, amendments and re-writes
  • detailed objective feedback against the evaluation criteria
  • review of your supporting documentation including organisational charts, CVs, case studies, policies, procedures and methodologies
