Are you in the healthcare sector and looking for the right healthcare Bid Manager for your business? This blog will explain what you should consider when choosing a healthcare Bid Manager when tendering for contracts.
If you’re new to the tendering process, you might be thinking, “why do I even need a healthcare Bid Manager?”
As you probably know, securing work in the healthcare sector often requires bidding for work. This is because most healthcare work is procured by Local Authorities, Central Government and the NHS.
So, to win work, grow your business and generate a profit, your company will need to bid for tendering opportunities.
Health and social care tenders are on the rise in the UK. This is because services for the elderly and other vulnerable groups are being transferred to private sector companies.
Tendering for work can be a lengthy, time-consuming and demanding process. From actually finding the bid, to answering the buyer’s questions and submitting your responses. It takes a lot of skill and expertise to write persuasive, compelling bids every time.
And we know how challenging running your own business can be. There’s so much else for you to focus on – do you have time to write a winning tender response?
It’s possible to manage your own healthcare bids, but why not let someone else take care of it for you? It might seem like an additional cost that your company doesn’t need, but it’s actually more cost effective. It’s better to outsource the process to a professional service than waste your in-house resources. Especially if you lose bids due to a lack of expertise!
To be successful as a healthcare Bid Manager, your time management skills need to be second to none when bid writing. Meeting deadlines is an essential part of the tendering process. If you miss the tender deadline, buyers will not evaluate your bid. And buyers won’t be impressed if you ask for extra time! It will make them wonder if your company will be able to deliver the contract on time – and within budget.
There’s no doubt about it – running your own business is time-consuming. Do you have the time to oversee the bid management process on top of your other responsibilities? Outsourcing your bid writing needs to a dedicated healthcare Bid Manager will save you time, money and resources.
To write a successful bid, you need the ability to write persuasive, compelling tender responses. It’s not just about being a talented writer – although this helps! But it’s more important to write short sentences that easily convey the information to the buyer.
Perfecting this skill takes time – even for talented writers! So why not outsource your bid writing needs to a dedicated healthcare Bid Manager? You can be sure that your tender responses are being taken care of by experts. And you can focus on other aspects of running a business!
A successful healthcare Bid Manager will have excellent communication skills – both written and verbal. You need to communicate with the buyer and show them that you can deliver their contract. This includes your tender responses and any communication you have with clients, suppliers or sometimes buyers in person.
If you run your own company, we’re sure that your communications skills are up to scratch. But even with top-notch communication skills, you’ll still benefit from outsourcing the work to Bid Writing Consultancy. An external Bid Manager will be skilled in communicating with you (the client) and ensure that you are kept up to date throughout the process.
It goes without saying that you’ll be an expert in your sector. But what about bid writing?
A healthcare Bid Manager might not be an expert in your particular specialism – that’s where you come in. But their industry awareness is invaluable to writing a successful bid response. A successful Bid Writer will be able to read the tender’s specifications and know how to tick all the boxes.
As we’ve already explained, the tendering process can be lengthy, time-consuming and demanding. To write and oversee a successful bid takes a lot of skill and expertise.
If you haven’t got the time, resources or personal skill to write winning bids – then don’t worry. A healthcare Bid Manager can help you with every step of the tendering process.
Of course, it varies from tender to tender, but you can expect your dedicated Bid Manager to:
Think about it. Do you have time to oversee every aspect of the tendering process?
Relying on a bid manager for your tendering needs will allow you to focus on other aspects of your business.
So now you know why you need a healthcare Bid Manager. But how do you find the right one for your business?
When looking for a healthcare Bid Manager, it’s important to find someone that understands your company’s needs and goals. The Bid Manager you choose will be working closely with your company until the tender’s submission date. So, they have to be the right fit for your company.
