Today, Equality, diversity and inclusion is a very important part of almost all bids and tenders for public sector funding. Getting it wrong could jeopardise your chances of winning the bid.
You may think that you know all about the project or services that you are delivering i.e. operations, delivery of objectives and targets against the criterion etc.
But have you got the in-house expertise to embed Equality, Diversity & Inclusion best practices, across all aspects of your bid?
If you haven’t, you are not maximising your chances of winning the bid.
You’ve been here before when preparing for a bid opportunity:
The bid or tender is put out later than had previously been communicated. The deadline is so short, it’s punishing. You have to burn the mid-night oil just to finish it and get your bid submitted by the deadline. By the time you have submitted the bid, you are just so relieved that it’s done, for a fleeting second, you almost don’t care anymore– almost!
Then the reality dawns on you that it’s your job to win this bid and that you do care – a lot! But by then it’s too late, you know you’ve not done the best you can, but the decision is already being announced and your organisation hasn’t won.
