“Commerce Decisions’ approach to problem solving was uncomplicated and pragmatic and the flexibility in meeting our needs was extremely beneficial.”
Kevin Cook, PFI Project Manager,
Redditch Borough Council
"We worked very closely with the Commerce Decisions consultants to help us set this project up and they played a crucial role in developing the approach. The support we get from Commerce Decisions is very professional and the AWARD® system always delivers."
Lesley Kippax, Strategic Procurement and Market Manager, NWCSU
"Along with the invaluable help that Commerce Decisions gave us in the development of the evaluation strategy, they also supported us with a series of excellent training sessions. This provided the team with all we required to ensure we made the most effective use of AWARD®."
Mike Clifford, School Liaison Manager, Scottish Borders Council
Commerce Decisions has a longstanding and enviable history of working with procuring organisations, having supported projects totalling in excess of $350 billion to date. Drawing on this accumulated experience and knowledge, Commerce Decisions is therefore in a unique position to offer a bid review service to tenderers.
Commerce Decisions’ independent bid review service focuses attention on the buyer’s priorities and supports the development of compelling, coherent proposals. The service varies depending on the needs and requirements of the bid team. However, it is based on the following core activities:
“Support from Commerce Decisions was so helpful—not only with their detailed knowledge of AWARD®, but also with lessons learned in relation to the vagaries of MS Office. I have no hesitation in suggesting to other AWARD® bidders that they engage early with Commerce Decisions if they want a highly competent independent bid review that will maximise their chances of winning.”
Robert Eggar, SSVC
“The final bid came to 16,000 pages and was one of the biggest that we had ever delivered. Without AWARD® we could not have got through the Red Team review process.”
Steve Whitby, EADS
“Using AWARD® to prepare our bid gave us real confidence that our proposal would be a good fit in terms of meeting the requirements of the MOD, and the Commerce Decisions consultant gave us excellent value in steering our response. It was very good to have a third party review of our proposal to ensure it was focused.”
