Tender writing is our core business.
We also provide other services and courses.
Why Plan A?
Winning business is what we do. So you can focus on what you do.
When you’re tendering for business, there is no Plan B.
If you don’t have a winning tender, you have nothing.
Plan A gives you the best chance to get that contract. Because winning tenders is our core business, the reason we come to work every day.
For smaller businesses, there’s no point trying to do what you’re not a specialist in – especially when you’re up against companies with better in-house resources. It is much better to bring in specialist bid and tender management services from outside.
Even for businesses with in-house bid strategists and writers, an outsider’s perspective can make the difference between winning and losing, between benefiting from team-think or suffering from group-think.
But in either model, you need a partner who understands the basis for tender evaluations across New Zealand. Plan A has the unique advantage of regular input from qualified tender evaluators and probity auditors. This means we are in a better position to develop and write winning content as the landscape changes – be it Government Procurement Rules, Broader Outcomes or Provincial Growth Fund projects.
We have the expertise to help from development of bid strategy through to bid management, tender writing, and review.

Plan A: what it takes to win
Bid strategy, bid management, winning tender responses, specialist bid writing services for compelling proposals, effective business documentation, and design.
These are the elements of what it takes to win, and we bring them together.
