Bid Support for HS2 Enabling and Main Works Tenders

Between March and November we provided bid management and bid writing services to one of the consortia bidding for HS2. We assisted them to submit tenders for three Enabling Works contracts, each worth approximately £300m; and three tenders for Main Works contracts, each worth approximately £1bn.

On each of the tenders we supported subject matter experts through storyboarding, response development, several senior management reviews and response completion. We worked on responses including: project execution; organisation; programme management; health and safety; quality assurance; incentivisation; design; environmental management; equality, diversity and inclusion; community engagement; supply chain management; diverse business representation and area specific method statements. Bid management activities we undertook included managing the overall bid tracker; managing the receipt, distribution and submission of Technical Queries; and organising and facilitating reviews.

The results of the Enabling Works tenders were announced recently and we were delighted that the Technical sections of all three tenders scored higher than any other bidders. Overall our client came first in two of the tenders and second in the third tender.
