Tender Planning

Plan Ahead have extensive experience working for Clients and Contractors, enabling us to develop programmes that address the areas important to both parties, whilst piecing together the overall tender requirements to provide a suitable winning package.  Plan Ahead are proud of their very high tender winning success rate, making us the go-to choice for our clients when they want support in winning that ‘key project’.

Compliant Tender Programmes

Plan Ahead pride themselves in being able to build contractually compliant programmes. The increasing use of NEC / FIDIC contracts has driven the need to ensure that tender programmes not only cover the scope of the contract, but are built with all the suitable levels of detail and content, including resource and cost loading as required. All our Tender outputs are accompanied with suitable output matrix and programme narratives.

Phasing / Logistic Plans

A picture says a thousand words – this is never more important than when a tenderer wishes to sell their offer to a client. Plan Ahead are effective at completing simple graphical plans to support a detailed tender programme. We work with the contractor to create an integrated view that seamlessly stitches programme and graphics together to provide that award-winning formula.

Summary Programmes

Often it can be hard for a tendering contractor to demonstrate their detailed strategy and winning ideas in a detailed tender programme. Over many years of experience, Plan Ahead have developed unique ways to present detailed programmes in a graphical summary format that demonstrates the contractor’s intent. Our Summary programmes enable clients to understand the contractors proposal in a matter 10 seconds or less, a key point when trying to sell an overall message.
