Bid Preparation Assistance

What is bid preparation assistance?

Bid preparation assistance provides companies with the education to ensure the submission of a complete and proper bid document to the correct agency in the most efficient manner for the bidding client. This is accomplished by identifying websites where bid information and documents can be attained and by training clients on accessing complete bid sets. For manufacturing firms, it entails education on downloading drawings, specifications, and other engineering-related information required to fully describe manufacturing and production requirements. Assistance also provides interpretation of federal, state, or industry contract clauses and business practices that could affect proper processing of the bid application.

What are the benefits of bid preparation assistance?

  • Save client time on bid preparation
  • Improve understanding of bid requirements
  • Identify necessary engineering requirements for products
