Bid support key aspects

Thomson FM has an excellent track-record in the provision of expert bid support to a number of major FM providers, both in the UK and further afield.
We can draw upon our experience in a wide range of complex and competitive tender situations in order to support our clients to maximise their chances of being successful in respect of highly competitive FM bid situations. The experience of our consultancy team in supporting client-side procurement commissions enables us to further enhance tender submissions through the identification of the key objectives of each client and how best to reflect those in the commercial and qualitative responses. Our bid support services include the provision of overall bid strategy development and directorship, FM solution development, pricing support including asset-based labour-loading, drafting of qualitative submission responses, review and refinement of written responses and price benchmarking. Additionally, where we have developed a detailed knowledge of how a FM contractor client operates, we can also offer a full bid management solution where we can generate the complete bid deliverables on behalf of that client, prior to the appropriate collaborative review and sign-off process pre-submission.

What we offer

  • Bid direction and identification of bid strategy and win themes
  • FM solution design and review
  • Pricing and price challenge

    I have engaged the services of Thomson FM for nearly 10 years now; across two distinctly different commissioning organisations. During this period I have found Thomson FM to be a highly professional, thoroughly skillful and suitably experienced consultancy. Their subject matter expertise, coupled with their logical and process orientated work methodologies and attention to detail, have continually served to produce high quality and effective outcomes for each of the assignments asked of them.
