One of our friendly team will discuss your bid project with you and the background to your requirements.
They will ask you questions that will determine the people and skills you will need and make appropriate recommendations. We won't ask you to make decisions right away, we understand that you'll want to reflect on the information you receive.
We will give you the costs (which is usually a day rate) and a selection of potential candidates to review. We will put the costs in writing to you and give you CVs for the personnel we recommend. You will also have the opportunity to speak to or interview potential Bid Perfect associates before you make a final decision.
All our associates are skills tested and have had their references checked in detail. They are all fully insured and will be operating under a strictly controlled contract with us.
SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you operate on a no win – no fee basis?
We will produce an exceptional bid for you, but sometimes it won't win due to factors beyond our control. These factors may include pricing, relationship, political considerations or the appropriateness of your solution. If a bid doesn't win, we still charge our fee. Like all businesses, we have overheads to accommodate and people's time to cover and these must be paid for.
Is there a minimum contract length?
No, you can have a Bid Perfect Associate for as long (or as little) as you need them.
Can I cancel if I decide to abandon the bid?
Yes, you can. We will agree a notice period, but this can be as little as one day.
What if the person we take on falls ill?
We will replace them immediately if the bid project is likely to be comprised.
Do I have to pay tax or NI for them?
No, we take care of all matters in that respect. The associate is contracted to us. We contract to you and you will simply receive a monthly invoice from us.
How long is a day and will your associates work unsocial hours?
A typical day is eight hours, but we expect our associates to be flexible when necessary. We will discuss the likelihood of unsocial hours or the need to work weekends with you in advance.
Will they work in my offices?
Yes, associates can work with you and your other stakeholders if that is your preference. They can also work remotely for some or all of the time. How you wish to work will be decided in advance.
