With 20 years’ experience of supporting and shaping UK MOD and public sector procurements, these courses are a great opportunity to learn directly from the experts. You’ll leave with a full understanding of the marking structure of a tender evaluation, the work undertaken by the buyer, what they’re looking for, and what all this means for your next bid.

procurement sector, Commerce Decisions is uniquely placed to provide advice and guidance to the bidding community.

Commerce Decisions has been supporting bidders for over 10 years with its independent bid review service, focusing attention on the buyer’s priorities and supporting the development of compelling, coherent proposals. Our bid support service has been proven to add up to a 7% increase to the bid score.

Our AWARD® Methodologies for Bidders training course has been designed to empower bid teams with the confidence and expertise required to prepare the best possible bid submission.

It reveals the challenges facing Government buyers, what they are looking for, and how you can address this in your bid.

The main focus of this training session is in understanding the buyers’ approaches to procurement and how this
understanding can be used in order to optimise your solution – what trade-offs can be made between quality and price to arrive at the highest overall MEAT score.

It also covers the different types to MEAT methodologies to highlight how this decision should vary across different competitions (it’s not always the lowest quality / least expensive bid that would win).

Our AWARD® Methodologies for Bidders training is delivered by Senior Consultant(s) from Commerce Decisions,
experienced on both the bid and the buy sides of procurement. The course can be run at Commerce Decisions’ offices or on site, for up to 10 delegates. Note that the course is currently run remotely in two sessions of 3 hours each.
