We can e.g.:

  • act as leaders of your capture team. This can be very important if you have the opportunity to influence a procurement in the period permitted by public procurement regulations
  • lead your bid team, so that you implement a proposal that is based on a process that complies with best practice and results in a proposal with a high chance of winning
  • be responsible for proposal writing and production of the final bid
  • help with the design and implementation of an oral presentation of your proposal towards, for example, the municipality that is behind it the public procurement. You decide whether Shipley is to be visible or invisible, or right in the front line.

We can assist you with the submission of proposals, regardless of whether they are targeted at commercial or public procurements.
