It is important to know if the job that you are applying for is suitable for you or not. On the same basis, it is also essential to know whether or not you are suitable for the job. Most of the time we forget simple things when we are tendering a job. In this article, we have gathered all the t possible questions that you must ask yourself before appling for any renewable energy tenders.
Brian Seymour shares his experience on this topic in these words, “In my travels around the country and speaking with contractors, I often ask the question as to whether they wish to tender a particular job and invariably get comments like “well yeah – I want to price everything I can get my hands on.”
But there needs to be a great deal more thought put into the decision to prepare a winning tender.
Have a look at these questions, and you would, in the end, be better confident for apllying the tender.
Ask yourself the right questions before applying for the renewable energy tenders
- Do you want this job?
- Would this job fit around your existing workload?
- Would it give added value to your business?
- Do you know the developer’s/builder’s/ client’s habits when it comes to payment?
- Can you finance the project?
- Although we get progress payments, what is the frequency?
Once you have asked yourself the necessary questions about the renewable enrgy tender, you are now in the position to decide whether or not you can take this tender. If the answer is negative, you must search or wait for some other opportunity. If the answer is positive, you must now move on to plan and actually apply for the tender.
For this, you must prepare the drafts of the prices and data before it’s the closing day. Make sure not to drag the task till the last day so you would forget things in haste. Just set on, fill the tender, finish the necessities and apply for it. Applying early would give the tenderer sufficint time to analyse and understand your bid.
Also, understand that price is not the only thing that matters. You should provide alternatives and approaches that are both economical and efficient for them so that they find your bid more attractive compared to the others. This will give you an edge in the world of competition and would help them decide better for you. But be sure to know who to trust with your prices.
In the end, you must understand that you have to be real and practical in your approach. If you win the tender, do celebrate but do not lose your head and start working on it as early as possible. If you lose, look for other oppertunitites. You will find the right job for you in no time if you stick to the proper way of applying and keep focusing on your work. Happy bidding to you.
