So what has changed? Certainly remote working has had a significant impact upon bid working practices, encouraging an innovative approach to what is intrinsically a collaborative process involving subject matter experts, writers, managers and reviewers. In tandem with adapting to new ways of working there has also been a need to respond quickly to tender responses, to ensure consistency of supply and business as usual during challenging times. And at a time where securing long term business is a crucial part of many organisation’s business development strategies, ensuring a bid stands out from the competition has become an absolute necessity.
