4 tips for securing a CCTV tender

Do you want to secure a CCTV tender for your business, but are not sure where to start? Tendering for contracts is a great way to grow your business and unlock new opportunities. However, if you’ve never tendered for work before, securing a CCTV tender might seem like a difficult task.

Luckily for you, Technology Tenders is here to offer some expert advice. In this blog, we’ll cover how you can find and win CCTV tenders for your business.

How can you win a CCTV tender? 

  1. Demonstrate your experience

Typically, the buyer will expect to see 2 – 3 case studies from the last 3 – 5 years. This is because they want to see evidence that you can deliver the work should you win the CCTV tender.

Your examples should be relevant in size, scope and complexity to the CCTV tender you’re bidding for. If it’s not relevant to the buyer’s project, you shouldn’t include it in your tender response.

  1. Stick to word counts and formatting instructions

Another tip for securing a CCTV tender is to stick to word counts, page limits and formatting instructions. If the buyer has specified a word count, try and get your response as close to this as possible. They’ve stated the word count for a reason, after all!

  1. Show added value

You’re more likely to win a CCTV tender if you demonstrate added value in your tender response. This is because every public sector contract must have a minimum weighting of 10% for social value.

When producing your tender response, you must consider the social, economic and environmental aspects of the contract. You should consider the following:

  • How you’ll support COVID-19 recovery
  • What you’ll do to encourage economic growth
  • How you’ll create new skills and jobs
  • What you’ll do to tackle climate change.
  1. Produce a high-quality, well-written response

To increase your chances of winning a CCTV tender, you need to produce a high-quality, well-written tender response. The buyer wants to read a clear, concise response that uses persuasive, engaging language. Even with impressive experience, you could lose marks if your tender response is of poor quality.

In summary

So, now you know how to win a CCTV tender for your business. Firstly, you should demonstrate your experience to the buyer. Show them why you’re the best possible business for their project.

It’s important that you stick to the buyer’s word count and formatting instructions. They’ve outlined them for a reason, after all!

You’ll also increase your chances of success by demonstrating added value in your tender response. To do this, consider social, economic and environmental factors when producing your bid.

Finally, it’s crucial that you produce a high-quality, well-written tender response. Even with relevant contract examples and added value, you’ll lose marks if your response is of low-quality. To make sure you win a CCTV tender for your business, you need to submit a persuasive and engaging bid.

Are you searching for a CCTV tender?

Technology Tenders can save you time on trolling through 1000s of sites. We source tendering opportunities so that you can focus on running your business.

What makes Technology Tenders different?

We use manual tracking

Other portals rely on the Common Procurement Vocabulary (CPV) codes to categorise tenders. However, they have been known to be ambiguous and file tenders under the wrong codes. This means you could be missing out on opportunities to tender.

Instead of using CPV codes, our Opportunity Trackers manually tag contracts they find to ensure they reach the right businesses. You can filter all live tenders using keywords, industry, location and budget to find the best opportunities for your business. On our portal, you’ll find relevant tenders by simply filtering ‘CCTV’.

Here are 5 examples of past CCTV tenders that we’ve sourced on our portal:

Three Rivers District Council – Eastern – Budget: £50k
