The Healthtrust Europe framework typically opens to potential suppliers every four years. Until then, let’s take a look at the most recent opening and the requirements. This will help you to prepare for the next round.
The organisation seeks to establish a framework agreement with experienced suppliers of permanent recruitment solutions.
The organisation renews its existing framework agreement for both national and international permanent recruitment services. This agreement is usually split into two lots:
In order to apply for this framework, Healthtrust Europe asks for SQ and ITT submissions. The contract is open to those who meet the minimum required turnover and who possess experience delivering similar contracts.
Healthtrust Europe have split the framework application process into two stages.
The first stage will take place in the form of a Selection Questionnaire (SQ). Responses to this initial SQ will be assessed based on a 100% quality evaluation.
This means that the buyer is only assessing the quality of the answers you submit. This will include not only the content but also the format and professional vocabulary used to convey the message.
Suppliers who successfully pass the SQ will then receive an invitation to tender (ITT). At this stage, the evaluation scope will be split into the following weighting:
This means that the buyer will focus a larger proportion of the awarding evaluation on the evidence presented and the clarity of your responses. Healthtrust Europe will expect to see detailed and exceptionally written tender responses which persuade them that your organisation is the most suitable to deliver this contract.
Writing winning bids involves many skills that stretch far beyond demonstrating company knowledge. As professional Bid Writers, we know that submitting successful responses requires multiple steps including:

Can you write the winning response? If you already have exceptional writers in-house, we also offer a guide and review service.
Tender Mentor ensures that you submit an error-free bid. We are your second pair of eyes and we will comb through your responses to ensure any grammatical errors are corrected before you press submit. We will also provide comments and tips for improvement to ensure that you are answering the buyer’s requirements as detailed in the specification.
Tender Ready is an in-depth, four-week programme, designed to increase your chances of winning for those who have never tendered for contacts before. With your input, our professional bid writers will create high-quality and fully branded corporate literature that you will need to submit with almost every tender you complete.
This literature will include your company’s:
We will also work with you to increase your knowledge of the tendering process and the contracts you should be bidding for.
Once the programme is complete, the support doesn’t end there. Our team of professionals will offer to either write your next tender on your behalf OR guide you through the next two bids of your choosing.
