Before you start bidding for information technology tenders, you need to know what to look for in a contract. Luckily for you, the Technology Tenders Team are here to help.
By the end of this blog, you’ll know which contracts are most suitable for your business. As well as which ones to avoid!
Next time you begin your search for information technology tenders, remember to ask yourself the following questions:
This is crucial. The buyer will expect to see case studies that demonstrate your experience with information technology tenders. These should be similar in size, scope and complexity to the buyer’s project.
Without this experience, it’ll be difficult for your business to stand out from the competition. So, you need to keep this in mind when you begin your tender search.
Tendering for contracts can be a lengthy, time-consuming process, that requires plenty of your time and resources. Therefore, you need to make sure that the information technology tenders you go for will actually benefit your business. In other words, you need to ensure that you’ll make a profit from the work. Otherwise, the time and resources you use to produce your tender response will go to waste.
Not only that, but there’s little point in tendering for work that won’t benefit your business in the long run. For example, imagine if you spent six months completing a project that didn’t result in a profit. That time would be better spent on delivering projects that are financially viable.
Another thing that you should consider when bidding for information technology tenders is whether you meet the financial standing.
What do we mean by this? Well, sometimes, a contract will require suppliers to meet financial requirements before they can bid for the work. For example, you might need to reach a certain annual turnover before you become eligible for the contract.
So, when you’re looking for tenders, make sure you don’t choose contracts worth more than 50% of your annual turnover.
Before you begin your search for information technology tenders, take a step back and assess your business. What are your USPs? Do you offer anything unique in the market? Are you offering something that your competitors aren’t?
When you spend time gathering this information, you’ll have a better idea of the contracts you’re likely to win. In turn, you’ll also know which contracts you should probably avoid!
If you’re tendering for work, you’re probably thinking about ways to grow your business. So, during your search for information technology tenders, think about your long-term business strategy. As you assess the tender opportunities, consider how this will help you meet those goals. If you can’t make a connection between the tender and your strategy, it might not be the tender for you.
However, if the opportunity manages to tick all of your boxes, it could be perfect for your business.
By now, you should know how to find information technology tenders for your business. Remember, you should ask yourself the following questions as you search for the perfect tender:
Technology Tenders can save you time on trolling through hundreds of sites. We source tendering opportunities so that you can focus on running your business.
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.
