Prepare your business to tender for contracts

Identify areas for improvement in your business


To prepare your business to tender for contracts, you should make improvements where possible. 

The starting point for improving your business is an assessment of the current situation. This will help you to identify gaps and develop your business in order to meet qualifying criteria when tendering for contracts.

Take a business health check

A business health check is a short, focused and critical review of your current business performance. It can help you to identify strengths and weaknesses in areas such as policies and procedures or financial performance.

We have a set of guides which can help you with assessing current performance in your business.

The best ideas to improve your business may already be within reach. For example your staff and customers may have a unique view on how to make positive changes to your business. For guidance on how best to gather, share and exploit knowledge in your business read our guide on the knowledge management and business growth.
